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.

In other Goatwhore news, the song "Diabolical Submergence Of Rebirth" from the A Haunting Curse album, will be heard in the upcoming season of HBO's Treme. The third season of the critically acclaimed show will begin airing on September 23rd. The song will appear in episode #7, which is currently scheduled to air on November 4th. Bringing metal to the masses.
I don't know why but the first time I read one of Goatwhore's songs was going to be featured on HBO's Treme (good series, btw), I coudn't help but laugh. I found it abit weird. But after doing a quick search, I have discovered that the band members are actually New Orleans natives. Treme is set in New Orleans. Guess that makes sense. Will look out for the song on the 3rd season.
