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.
Nice and varied list, a lot of good not metal albums here but I think ( or Last.fm doess) "Atrium Carceri - Kapnobatai" was released in 2005. I do not want to be picky since I got familiar with that band after reading you suggested it somewhere in forums but its inclusion on this list might be misleading
Some cool stuff on there but I now udnerstand why our discussion never went anywhere - our music tastes are so different amigo!!
Well this list is extremely out of date now (not that I don't like anything from it, but I'd probably restrict it to one band per entry) and would now contain a reasonable amount of classic metal as it was after I made this list I made some effort to look into it
