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.
Jordanian doom/death metallers Chalice Of Doom have recently posted online a new lyric video for the song "Shame, Written In Blood", taken from their new album Into Hypnagogia. The video was created by Hussam Al Khawaldeh and the track features the legendary Swedish vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Roger "Rogga" Johansson (The 11th Hour, Paganizer, Ribspreader, ex-Edge Of Sanity. Check it out below.
When asked about the album, Johansson commented: "This album will be something that the Doom fans will drool over, you have just about everything present here. The heaviness, the melody and most important: the feeling. This album is gonna be something you wanna listen to over and over and over."
Into Hypnagogia is the band's second full length album and was recently released through the Spanish label Memento Mori. Apart from Roger "Rogga" Johansson, the album also features a bunch of guest musicians such as the vocalists Marius Strand (The Fall Of Every Season), Christina Kroustali (Die Verbannten Kinder Evas) and Giampaul Andrianopoulos (Lonesome October, ex-Earthen). The Russian keyboardist Maria Zvyagina is also featured as a session musician.
