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.
Swedish death/thrash metallers Carnal Forge have announced that they have decided to place themselves on an indefinite hiatus as a result of members focusing on other projects.
Bass player Lars Lindén posted the following on the band's Facebook page: "Since all the members have chosen to drop off Carnal Forge due to different reasons to work on new projects, CF will take a pause and the band will be put on ice for an unspecified time. I don't know if there will ever be another CF album or if we'll play live again. I sure do hope so and will work for it, but only the future will tell. Thanks for all of the support through good times and bad times since 1997. See you out there some day somewhere somehow or see you all in hell! All the best from all of us! Peace!"
