It's not THAT bad but nevertheless, it will most probably rule 2019's bottom charts once all the fake ratings are cleared.

Irony (Irany?) of fate, I guess.

A lot of accounts which people voted with were created right after or before the album was released. Pretty lame move from the band (in case they are involved). What's next? A world tour with Threatin as special guest?

By now it's a given fact that the band is involved, their guitarist is one of the 10/10 voters.
"We have no label in our f#cken country to support us so we gotta help ourselves." - that's what they told me.
And that I should f#ck myself.

Edit 12-03-2019: I am very sure now that I've not been contacted and insulted by a member of the band but by some 'fan'. I believe that the band shouldn't be blamed for their fans' behaviour.

Yeah, he just shot himself in the foot. The album is barely better than pure shite anyway and it will soon end up in the bottom 20 of all time when all the 10s and 9s get nuked.

Al-Namrood are risking their lives to make black metal albums from Saudi Arabia, yet here are these lamies from Iran crying about how bad it is for them. Even worst, insulting people when they're caught cheating. Pathetic.

Hey everyone, I'm guitar player of the band, We respect all of you, We are not cheating and we are not insulting anyone, We didn't cry anywhere for what we do, because it is what we love to do and we will do it anyway. We are not trying to make this bold or something and we didn't plan any of these.
It's just the fact that this album is one of the the first legal death metal albums which has a legal permission to release and perform live from an related organizations in Iran and metalheads in Iran are happy about this, they contact us and sends us their love, because now everyone living in Iran know that there is a way to make it possible, So they will vote for us anywhere they see us. So, I think most of the people who registered and voted are our friends and families because I know some the emails on the list, maybe even given us a score more than what this album deserves and it has nothing to do with the band. and I'm saying this again, we don't want to emphasize this.
All of these became possible because of metal communities in the world, because of online websites like MetalStorm and many others, So we surely will not betray you and we can not thank you enough about this.
One last thing, I personally did gave the album 7, because I wasn't in the band at the time of composition, recording, etc... of the album. And Reza (founder of the band, composer of the album, who did most of the job) is my old friend, so I think I have the right to rate him.

First of all: I appreciate your courage of openly posting something here.
I am quite sure that nobody of the MetalStorm community wants to suppress bands from theocratic states and/or authoritarian societies.
Personally, I do think that bands like yours should get a fair chance and all the support forums like MetalStorm can offer. But if your band wants to be recognized you have to follow some rules. Some very simple and universal rules:

1. You shouldn't lie.
Your inital rating for your band's album was 10/10. I have seen it and many other users have seen it, too. You changed it to 7/10 only a few days after you've been caught cheating. That's a big difference.

2. Rating your own album to push it is a very bad idea. It always is.
So, you altered your rating. That's just fine. But your band mate Reza Rostamian is known to be the MS user Reza.vn. His one and only vote is 9/10 for his own work. He was clever enough not to rate it 10/10, but neverthelesse, this is just shameful. By the way, 9/10 would be the highest rating for an instrumental (!) Death/Thrash metal hybrid I've ever seen and it's just plain ridiculous.

3. You shouldn't lie. Again.
"We are not cheating and we are not insulting anyone" is a blatant lie and you know it.
It's not just me, also other users have been insulted by members of your band. "Friends and families" ? Come on, I just can't believe it was NOT one of those many fake accounts you created but your mum telling me to f#ck off...

If you want a second chance I'd strongly advice you to immediately nuke all (!) faked ratings - before MetalStorm staff has to do the job.

1- I removed my own rating and I will not rate my own stuff again. I don't know what to say about the 10 I gave. I'm sorry
2- Reza.Vn is not our band member. I don't know anything about this profile.
3- I said I saw the list of voters, and I knew a few of them by their profile names. I will tell them to remove their ratings and i will post a statement on our instagram page and will tell everyone who rated, to remove their ratings.

I really do appreciate your appropriate reaction and your efforts to put the record straight by contacting me.

To whom it may concern...
Merta - the guitarist of Integral Rigor - PM'ed some days ago and understandably, he was still quite concerned how things have developed. Without going into excessive details, some things he told me absolutely convinced me that there was only one thing the band can be blamed for: they have a very loyal following in their home country.
I believe that the support of some of their fans went a little too far, but I also do believe that a band shouldn't be held responsible for actions of their fans. Yes, they do have faithful fans and some of them solely registered on the site in order to push the latest band's album. And it was indeed kinda bizarre to see Alast taking the charts' top position in the last weeks of January - out of the blue and without prior warning. But after talking to merta I am convinced that it has never been the band's intention to manipulate the charts in any way.
Mostly, I am a very stubborn person - but merta convinced me easily. Feel free to contact the band's guitarist if you want to know more details.

All I'm asking for is to give this band and in particular this album an impartial, second chance. Listen to the album and judge it by the music, not by some old stories of misconception and false assumptions.

(and I swear I'm not writing all of this since I've been bribed in any way. I asked for it but they don't have any stroopwafels in Iran.)
