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 post-metallers Cult Of Luna have revealed a brand new video clip today for the song "Passing Through", directed by Markus Lundqvist. The song is taken from their latest album Vertikal, released just last month. You can watch it below.
The video for "Passing Through" was filmed in sub-zero temperatures at what was once Sweden's largest mental hospital. Closed since the 60's, the Säter hospital was where the mentally ill were routinely castrated and lobotomized.
Cult Of Luna perform a new acoustic version of "Passing Through". Apparently when COL visit Helsinki (March 2), they feel the need to play their music acoustically on a harbor in the middle of the night during a snowstorm.. So, a new "dark and frosty" version you can see here: Link
