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.
US power metallers Judicator recently successfully completed their Indiegogo campaign to fund their upcoming release, At The Expense Of Humanity. Included in the campaign was also the intention of using part of the money to pay an artist to replace the previously released album cover, and today the new artwork, realized by Austin Bentley, has been revealed. Do you like the new one better or the previous one?
The album is supposed to be released on November 4th, while here you can listen to the previously released track "Coping Mechanism" off the album.
I...don't know if they were going for a serious look or not, but the new album art doesn't convey that at all. It looks really fucking goofy (especially in the face). The initial album art is pretty solid on it's own, albeit the font for the title seems to clash with the overall design.
