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.
The Taiwanese melodic black metal band Chthonic has been working hard on a new album and recording new material at Halmstad, Sweden. Now the tracking is complete and the band is one step closer to the finished product. You would do well to remember that Chthonic's latest offering was Takasago Army, which won Best Melodic Black Metal at last year's Metal Storm Awards.
Brief update from the band: "Cheers! Today we've finished all the tracking for the new album!"
The band has also been sharing silly recording diaries and the second one can be seen below.
