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.
Whoever is going to the Metal Female Voices Fest this year is in for a treat, especially Leaves' Eyes fans. The symphonic metallers will celebrate their 10th anniversary at Metal Female Voices Festival 2014 in Belgium with a special show Hymns Of A Decade, including a big stage set, pyros, visual effects and guests. Leaves' Eyes will even play brand new material from the upcoming album. Check out the official trailer for the special show on October 18th, 2014.
On top of it all, there will be a fan-song voting at the band's Facebook page. Stay tuned for that. Which favourite songs would you include in the set?
Interesting pieces of rig behind her: Marshall, Randall, Soldano... wow!
btw, I'm just curious, did Nightwish ever participate in these festivals?
Yup. Despite the fact that Nightwish only headlined the said event once as a group, but you may find interesting photos of Tarja & Anette; Tarja & Floor (both happened when associated with other projects) from that festival.
