OK, how the fuck did this piece of shit get approved?! It's just a shitload of senseless bashing of the band instead of actually explaining why the music sucked, overusing the words "faggoth" and stereotyping the members...seriously, who accepted this?

None of your fucking business. Yes, it is, and it's also from 2003, in case you didn't notice. And even less of your business.

I don't think I like your attitude, BTW. Mini-mods tend to do that to me.

Sorry, that review just pisses me off. Marvelously.

DBK's review in the middle is a mere run down of a few tracks with incredibly bland 1 + 1 mentions of a riff and catchiness or whether something plods. So short, so basic, so useless.

It's really short, doesn't really elaborate on any of the points it makes, and doesn't really say much about the way the album sounds. There are also a few grammar/punctuation errors, but they don't really hurt anything. They just make the review look a little bit sloppy, if you ask me.

(can't believe i posted this first in the wrong thread...)

It seems a little unfinished... there isn't even a final full-stop. Guy definitely isn't an English-as-mothertongue reviewer, and while that shouldn't really affect it, there isn't that much info otherwise to save the review imo.

I don't really mind if the review stays or not, but should Sigillum_Dei_Ameth's really be here? Only one of his four paragraphs actually describes the music and even then it's just a short description of a couple of the songs. I know that the band maybe doesn't really deserve as much as an in depth review as a lot of other bands require, but describing some of the songs as only "blastbeat-filled black metal" just seems a bit too concise to me.

Um, how legit is that? Barely any musical description, and that last line advocates something I'd do, but wouldn't say in a review. Btw if we're going by the guy's stated age, then he was 13 when he wrote that.

http://www.metal-archives.com/reviews/Amon_Amarth/Surtur_Rising/294761/tcgjarhead

This review of Surtur Rising is quite the stinker, content-wise. The reviewer seems to harbor some misguided notion that AA are an extreme tech death metal band, or something, and then takes offense when - surprise, surprise - they aren't actually that (no idea where he's going with the comparisons to Five Finger Death Punch and Slipknot, total non-sequitur there). I didn't realize anyone still claimed AA as a pure death metal outfit, and equating them to hard rock or "down tuned heavy metal" (which aren't even really similar styles to begin with) is rather farcical whether you love or hate the band.

I could go on - like how picking on a bonus track that isn't on all editions of the album is rather silly - but I think the point is made. Armed with real ammo, a proper 40% review could be so much better than this thing, which literally adds nothing to the already-substantial set of commentary on the album (coincidentally, the other 40% review for this album is also retarded, taking off points for how these songs might sound live and whether it'll be viewed as a classic in the coming years (?!)).


After seeing your complaint I decided to find out if I could see what you are talking about. I'll add in this:

From the review wrote:
There are some fast picked parts in songs like Tock's Taunt - Loke's Treachery Pt 2 and Destroyer of the Universe which are actually more in line with what you would normally hear in the genre. But for every one of these parts you have stuff like The Last Stand of Frej or their cover of the System of a Down track Aerials.


The reviewer gives credit to "Tock's Taunt" for having fast picking it and then goes on to rag against "The Last Stand of Frej" for not having fast picking. The problem is that both songs are structured very similarly and that "The Last Stand of Frej" has one of the longest passages of fast picking on the entire album. The only way a reviewer could have missed that is to have skipped the song before the fast picking comes in (about 90 seconds into the song I believe).

I also have a problem with the bonus track being attributed to the album, that should never happen unless ALL editions of the album come with the bonus track.

Finally, the reviewer says that the album/band is not Melodic Death Metal but are just a heavier version of different genres. Knowing what genre a band/album belongs to is not a subjective opinion, but rather a skill that a person has. The other reviews say that the album/band is Melodic Death Metal. How can we take a review seriously when the reviewer can't even identify what genre the music belongs in, something that MA has determined is not up to opinion?

To be fair, I've also described them as just really downtuned AOR with death growls as well. It's really not much of a stretch, plus it gives a better idea of what they actually sound like. If I was just told they were melodeath I'd expect something like At the Gates or In Flames, which AA sounds nothing like.

There are plenty of other melodeath sounds that ATG and IF aren't like. C'mon man.

No real musical description - one of the main paragraphs says "it's impossible to hear anything" and the other one bitches about the song titles. No discussion on the riffs, vocals, drumming patterns or anything that would lead me to discovering how the album actually sounds.

It's folk-inflected melodic metal + melodeath is all I got. The blandest of bland, by-the-numbers press review. Awful.

Well yeah, I know that. I'm just basically saying that AA have a sound that, while melodeath, isn't quite the Gothenburg style that I (and surely many others) immediately think of, so a description like super heavy AOR is totally valid.

I don't get the issue here. While yes I enjoy the fast picking in Tock's Taunt it doesn't mean just because The Last Stand of Frej has the same thing I enjoy it just for that fact. They still have to be good riffs right?

Its my opinion the band and the album I reviewed are either just melodic metal with some melodic death metal influences or very weak melodic death metal. Either way I didn't really enjoy the album outside of a few songs and bits and pieces of other songs. The music comes off like the other bands I listed, heavy but shallow at the same time.

A lot of people seem to like Amon Amarth and that's cool, go ahead and listen to them I don't care. But that doesn't mean I have to enjoy them along with you, or that my criticism isn't valid. Opinions, right?

It's really short, and too short to paint a good picture of the album. It might have been acceptable in 2006, but standards change and I think this one should be purged.

Not only is it short, it's very light on description. Just by this review, I'd have no idea what this album sounds like, except for "Cookie Monster range" vocals and "overbearing and droning" music.

No description at all. Is extremely short, could be copy-pasted to any black metal album ever.

http://www.metal-archives.com/reviews/V ... End/13634/

Metal_God's review of Vhaldemar's debut album is completely useless; there is no information on what sort of music the album contains or what it sounds like. The band page says that Vhaldemar play power metal, and the review's one musical detail is that one song sounds more like heavy metal than power metal. You could copy and paste this review to just about any power metal album on the entire site and it would fit just as well.

Quote:
For a first album this sounds actually really good. You hear that they're not very rutined as song writers, because some tracks cant capture the interest and feeling of a very good song.

They start of with the great "Black Beast". A poerful song where they show what they can do. Next track is even better and went right up in top 5 songs ever for me. "Energy", as it's called, is one of the best songs I've ever heard, and is more of a heavy metal song rather than a power metal song. Heavy drums, raw and hard guitars and Carlos Escudero on great vocals.
Also the following song "Feelings" is great. Not as good as the other two I've mentioned, but still a very memorable track.
Then there are some songs that's not at all as good as the first three. "Lost Word" is good, but nothing you remember. "Old King´s Visions (Part 1)" is a track I cant understand. Why have they even written it? Very weak effort.
Then follows "Number" and "7". Two tracks that is like one, where the first isn't reallt a song.
The last four songs is like the first three. They're all very good - maybe not as good as the first three but almost - and actually very cool also. The instrumental "The Helmet of War" is great and they shows what they can do with their instruments...

Vhaldemars "Fight To The End" is a very good album and is perfect for a power metal maniac. Though it's a very good album, it is not as good as Red Wines "Hijos del Despertar" and Dark Moors "Gates of Oblivion". Also two spanish bands signed on the same record company, Arise Records.


I think I've read ad copy more informative than this. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if this is a paid advertisement.

(if anyone gives a damn about what this actually sounds like, the opener "Black Beast" is 100% Iron Savior worship. Every single aspect of it seems derived from Iron Savior's Unification--the production, the riff set, the vocals (like Piet Sielck, only with a thick Spanish accent and a chest infection), everything. None of it is done very well. There, I just did a better description in three sentences.)

I think cjwbball51's review for Intruder's Psycho Savant should be taken down. Very poorly done, and it doesn't tell me much about anything except that the vocalist sucks and the guitars play riffs and do solo's. Not really informative for a thrash/speed metal album or for any album.

He doesn't describe the album much at all; rather, he spends far more time talking about previous albums while being really vague about the album being reviewed.

One sentence of musical description, the rest is typical fanboy raving. Considering the album has 15 other reviews, this is quite unnecessary.

http://www.metal-archives.com/reviews/A ... atientZero

PatientZero's review for Axis of Advance's Strike. The first paragraph is completely ambiguous about the details of the album's supposed "faggot tendencies" and never gets around to describing them. The second paragraph is essentially a run-on ad hominem levied against fans of the band. The third paragraph says nothing, and the fourth paragraph reprises the second paragraph's infatuation with lambasting fans of the band as Gothenfags. Beyond being completely void of anything resembling content, his periodic flirtations with actually describing the music should be genuinely baffling to anyone that has actually heard the album, as they don't make the slightest bit of sense.

Not only is it horribly written, but his half-assed "description" (if it can even be called that) of the album is COMPLETELY inaccurate based on what the album actually sounds like.

It's a piece of shit, but unlikely to be removed until another negative one is written.

Really? More bare bones than a dog bone.

I posted this in the review discussion thread because I thought it sucked, but now I think it should be deleted. Very minimal description, and not as in broad descriptions. The guy doesn't exactly go into talking about the album (at least not very well).

I learned that Mirrorthrone is one of some guy's many projects, its songs aren't too long (which is good if I can't listen to long songs), and it uses an Oboe at one point. OH! And it has Female vocals in it somewhere (that makes it darker).

This reply after my post is a good summary of what the review says.

Also this:

People are getting away with a lot more these days, apparently.

I learned that Old Silver Key is a disappointing collaborative band between (a member each from both?) Alcest and Drudkh, whose label forces these two (men?) to conform to a new gender stereotype, and that they simultaneously set their sights too high and were comfortable with an old songwriting formula. OH! And the production values are rough.


(Honestly this one contains even less musical description than the last)

This is quite pointless as well as unwittingly hilarious. The guy who uses phrases like "it is truly a state of trance", "'necro -style' production" and "tremendeous intimate satanic feel". :lol:

The formatting is also horrible and ultimately the review doesn't give a very clear picture of the music at all. Maybe xexyzl can provide a summary.

"That atmosphere gets into your room thrugh the speakers, and it works hypnotic. It seems vile for a while untill you get used to it, then it sucks you in and it makes you calm and sleepy." Hahahaha :lol:

That's a long one, may take some work sorting through it. At least these short ones are succinctly superfluous.

Edit: I learned that this album makes you sleepy. *Yawn* Sorry guys I can't give you a summary, I need to take a nap.

I learned that Demoniac Abasbacation does not play music because nobody plays anything! There aren't even drums, save for electronic ones in the speed of light. Forget removing the review, perhaps we should remove the band since they don't play music, much less Metal! OH! And the lyrics suck !
