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.
Five Finger Death Punch are premiering a new music video for their cover of the classic track "The House Of The Rising Sun" found in the album The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell - Volume 2, released in November 2013. Enjoy it below.
These are the band's thoughts about the video: "We went out there with two helicopters, two gyrocopters, twenty something crazy cars, a big cast and an arsenal of cameras. We ended up with so much amazing material, the hardest task was to compress it down into a 3 minutes video, so we made an extended version with a long intro and we are making an even longer 'directors cut' as we speak..."
Anyone know how to get vomit off of a computer screen? My god, could there be a more horrendous and horrifying statement?
This is definitely one of the worst songs I've ever sat through... oh dear lord....
Could be worst - someone could've mentioned Alcest, Agalloch, Within Temptation or Sonata Artica as the current face of metal.
As much of an Agalloch fanboy as I am (the only band I like more is Pink Floyd), none of those are "the face of metal" either, however it would be EVEN worse to say any of the numerous 80's thrash and death metal bands that are still trying to make music are the face of metal . I think it's actually dumb to label one band as the face of metal, but that's a discussion for a different thread.

Lamb of God is actually one of my favorite bands, but Pantera I never cared for aside from a handful of tracks. Not sure what about your post that Machiavelli guy takes offense to as both bands have a similar sound rooted in groove metal.
I just consider FFDP to be the worst of a bad bunch of contemporary metal bands that includes the likes of BFMV and A7X.
Never listened to these guys before, but had a look at some of their other songs and they come across like a combination of Staind, Slipknot and Papa Roach, or something. Very much the lowest common denominator type of music. Too middle of the road to be offensive but certainly not something I would ever listen to again. If I was a young'un I might be into them though.
They seem to be reinforcing the angsty side of 90s alternative / nu metal rather than anything "traditional" from metal.
Written by Guest on 25.03.2014 at 18:52 So... who would be the face of metal?
I don't think such a thing exists. Metal as a whole is comprised of various features that make up its face, but I don't think any one band deserves or has earned that honor, unless you stick with the old guard of Maiden and 'tallica and the likes.
What the hell? I didn't even realise it was a cover of The Animals' song, as it sounds absolutely nothing like it whatsoever!
The original version is of course great, and a classic. I have to say though, that is probably the worst butchering of a classic song I've ever heard in my life. It's totally unrecognisable as even being the same song... I think it's even more terrible now.
