00:03 - Korah Yeah, MS ratings on new albums are totally f****ed! You just have to watch ratings from 2000 and ratings from 2016! Metal was'nt so much better than today releases.
23:53 - Czerny Reiter There's a dearth of reviewers on the site and most of what gets reviewed ends up getting a good grade (on the grounds that pro-bono reviewers mostly review what appeals to them).
23:48 - Overrwatcher I feel as if SSUS's review backlash is a perfect example of this. When he gave a 2/10 people didn't say much. When he gave a 9/10 people questioned his review integrity.
23:42 - Overrwatcher I will always bring up BMTH's "There Is A Hell" in this regard. Very well received literally everywhere but MS. Here it's one of the lowest rated albums in the database.
23:38 - Overrwatcher Bands can put out similar quality records to 10 years ago yet get over 1 point less. People have been much more negative recently. And MS also seems to shit on some albums at random.
Enslaved have announced a handful of European dates as part of their Circling Above and Within Tour.
Guitarist Ivar Bjørnson Peersen adds: "It is with great enthusiasm we can announce these European dates of our "Circling Above and Within" Tour! Enslaved is a band that enjoys being on the road like nothing else, we do take pride in being a hard working and increasingly energetic and focused live band. We are also very pleased with our new album (why be modest?) due to be out in connection with this tour - and cannot wait to perform the tracks live!"
