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.
Devin Townsend just doesn't stop. With the Casualties Of Coolrelease on the horizon, Devin is already preparing the next one and that will be Ziltoid 2. The recording for the new album has begun and the Casualties Of Cool pledge (currently at 490% !) is also funding the Ziltoid project. Drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen has confirmed that the drum tracks are done for Ziltoid 2. The theme of the double album is Ziltoid versus the Devin Townsend Project, with both getting their own album.
Ryan shared this message: "Ziltoid 2 drum tracks are officially done! That was the most insane day I've ever done in the studio and easily the most memorable and rewarding. Time to rest as I've got another album to record tomorrow before I fly home Monday.... DTP album is next!"

Back in April, Devin shared these tentative song titles:
From Sleep Awake
March Of The Poozers
Ziltoid Goes Home
Offer Your Light
With all due respect, I never care about Devin's music. Yeah, til he was in SYL, I liked his music and passion. Dropped his solo career, I felt little unattached and not intrested. Although, he has superb mastery of writing dark lyrics and his chain of black humor in cartoon characters is amazing but I don't know I never felt connected with him.
It's like I always ignore his news/interviews and albums lately. No, I don't hate him and his music doesn't suck but it's just like that feeling where you ought to ignore it. It's weird.
