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.
23:36 - Overrwatcher I'd say that MS is generally somewhat close to the general consensus, with exceptions. Melodeath gets overrated, metalcore underrated. And there is a notable difference in modern album scores.
23:28 - !J.O.O.E.! One could argue that that album's appeal is underground =V
As stated in earlier news, Mark Jansen took part in the benefit bicyle marathon La Marmotte to raise money for the Amazon to save the jaguar.
The following is from the band's site: We are very proud to announce that Mark finished his benefit cycle marathon the Marmotte. The ride of 174 km took him an astonishing 12 hours and according to Mark this was the heaviest ride he ever did. How much he raised for the WWF exactly has to be calculated now, but we hope to announce it soon!
Mark wants to thank everybody who has sponsored him. Without your faith this wouldn't have been possible!
WWF calculated how much Mark raised and it turned out to be... 3800 euros.
So once again, Mark wants to thank everyone who sponsored him.
