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.
Long time no see Vanden Plas. Three years have passed since the release of The Seraphic Clockwork, the band's latest album, and today there's finally some news about what's next for the power/prog metallers. Be prepared for a new Vanden Plas album next year, more precisely in January. The band has been recording new material and preparing the new release.
Band update: "First of all - sorry for the long time without some V.P. news. After we finally finished the new album (release January 14), Andy played - berger in 'hair' - in 21 sold out shows 42.000 people were watching in Augsburg a very unique stageplay on one of the most beautiful outdoor stages in Europe. During this time the rest of the band were playing very successful 'aida' in Kaiserslautern. And now - we slowly want to work off all the news for you. Be prepared for many many upcoming Vanden Plas facts during the next months. All the best to all our friends out there - and we hope you had a very great summer!"
