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.
US death metallers Dååth have revealed the cover artwork for their upcoming eponymous album. The new album will be hitting the shelves on October 26 via Century Media Records. One of the new tracks, "Destruction/Restoration", is already streaming at this location.
Guitarist Emil Werstler previously said the following about the new material: "I've been listening to the final master of this record for a couple of days now. It is hard to believe that the task has been in process since March. In retrospect, I will say that more sacrifice was put into this record than anything I've ever been involved in. The content is EXTREMELY dark, distraught, and completely honest. The timing is appropriate as well considering how lacking music has been in the creative department for the last year or two.
I'm not hinting that we are going to become some pop culture phenomenon. We have no interest in that. As long as someone completely hates it, loves it or is moved in anyway be it positive or negative, our job is done. We have no interest in middle ground. You would have to be deaf to not hear that."
Vocalist Sean Z. added: "This album will definitely be the most real thing this band has put out to date. It's on a level everyone can relate to. The lyrics have taken a brand new direction and the music compliments the insanity creating a fucking masterpiece of a way different kind."
Just listened to them again... still not sure if i like them or not.

It's so damn hard to get excited about any sort of release from any sort of american band whatsoever. I'll give this one a chance, but I'm doubtful that it will be worth picking up. Cool cover art, though
^ Agreed. Werstler is a really talented guitarist and I love his use of jazz scales in his solo's but Daath as a band doesn't excite me all that much. His instrumental album has some interesting elements but it's an instrumental album.
I agree about the American bands. There's just a lot of generic boring music coming out.
