10:02 - Risto Yeah, there are still albums being released that are easily as good as the top 200 of this site
09:31 - Lethrokai ...albums released from that point are more likely to have lower ratings. (+vote abusing has become more noticeable...) It's a pattern you'll find on most music rating sites.
09:27 - Lethrokai Eh, the rise in popularity of the internet explains that best. New albums are always judged more harshly upon their initial release, and as such with more people to judge those new albums due to the rise in internet popularity...
08:45 - Moose Interesting... Axioma Ethica Odini by Enslaved (2010) is the most recent album in the top 200. Meanwhile, 67 albums from the 00's feature in the list.
07:25 - Soulhole new soilwork, nile, and ahab today. im in valhala!
05:31 - no one kiwi, your names a bit false advertising isn't it?
04:53 - LeKiwi I believe Digipak needs to capitalised as it is a registered trademark, where as digipack simply refers to that style of packaging. Not entirely sure...digipack might just be a spelling mistake, however logical :P

The year is 1891. The members of the Gentleman's Club of A Forest Of Stars, an exclusive brotherhood of English Victorians, consider themselves to be exponents of their glorious and pompous, at times decadent era characterized by extreme opposites. A Forest Of Stars channel the experiences gained from their numerous meetings hazed by opium and absinthe, occult rites and séances in the form of a previously unheard-of ghostly and hypnotic music, filled with the spirit of the glorious Victorian Age - a harrowing testimony of their many spiritual and sensual excesses.
For their future undertakings, the Gentleman's Club has now found a loyal partner in Lupus Lounge / Prophecy Productions who are going to support these artists in the realisation of their five next albums. The Club's Representative The Gentleman has this to say about this decision of mutual cooperation: "We are proudly humbled to join the ranks of such great and noble artists. It is an honour to do business with a Mechanical Phonograph Recording Label that allows us to do precisely as we please and that has ensured our much-cherished Gentleman's Club will not unduly fall into ruin or disrepair. In short, we could not ask for a more fitting partnership."
The band that surprised everyone with their majestic debut album The Corpse Of Rebirth is back again. A Forest of Stars have been busy conjuring up the next Beast; entitled Opportunistic Thieves of Spring cover art glimpse], due for release in May. A few kind words from the likes of Mr. T.S. Kettleburner:
"Mark thy words: this album will send listeners to the world that lieth beyond. The exact release dates for North America and Europe will be announced shortly, but the tentative release is set for May. Opportunistic Thieves of Spring was recorded once again at Silent City Studios with master Rob Hobson behind the controls. For this recording, new member John Bishop took care of the drums."
