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
Canadian death metallers Cryptopsy will soon release a 2CD/digital download "best of" collection entitled The Best Of Us Bleed. The band has now teased this release with a brief video, which you can watch here. Century Media Records will release The Best Of Us Bleed on November 12th in Europe and on November 19th in North America.
The Best Of Us Bleed gathers 32 songs in approximately 140 minutes of playing time, including three exclusive, newer studio songs, several rare live/demo/cover/bonus tracks as well as selected cuts from the first six studio albums by the band. The cover artwork of this compilation was designed by Toshihiro Egawa (Suicide Silence, Krisiun, Abigail Williams, etc.) and the booklet contains extensive biographical liner notes by Adrien Begrand (Decibel Magazine).
