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.
23:36 - Overrwatcher I'd say that MS is generally somewhat close to the general consensus, with exceptions. Melodeath gets overrated, metalcore underrated. And there is a notable difference in modern album scores.
23:28 - !J.O.O.E.! One could argue that that album's appeal is underground =V
Amnesty International Germany is premiering the new Heaven Shall Burn video-clip for "Combat". People watching some of their latest festival-appearances might have gotten a glimpse to excerpts of the fully animated clip that was done by Animaatiokopla from Finland. You can view the video below.
Guitarist Maik Weichert comments on the song: "Whoever informed him/herself a little better about child soldiers will understand why the song sounds as furious."
"Combat" is taken off their latest album Invictus that got Heaven Shall Burn chart positions in several European countries such as Austria (#15), Switzerland (#38), Greece (#14) and above all an amazing #9 in their native German Mediacontrol charts.
