    Let's post stupid or plain wrong reviews, comment on them and fight with each other as always. You're not allowed to agree with each other. You can only fight till death and internet honour.

    I'll start.

    Yours truly,

    Haha Onder, the one you posted is the exact one I thought of. In fact, at MDF this past weekend, David, Guy and I were talking about Noktorn. I used to be in pretty regular contact with Noah but I've lost track of him over the years. He's quite a character and I think (and hope) he still has the same fetish for finding bargain bin shit and calling it classic and forgotten. :lol:

    Noktorn had a blog called Trial by Ordeal that was running for a good several months, but it died off and he got tied up with some family shit. If this is indeed the Noktorn that you're talking about.

    I don't like Deathspell Omega either. I wouldn't call them a Christian band, however.

    Why? Let's try to stay objective. Why do you think that is a stupid review? Do you think it's better than this one, which looks quite similar conceptually but awards the album with 97%? Some of their claims are exact opposites.

    Any given review on MA is going to be shitty.

    Well, IMO that album deserved a better review. I wouldn't of cared if he had given it a 50% or 45%, but a flat 0% seemed excessive. But hey, some people hate Pantera, and I can understand why.

    Anyway, http://www.metal-archives.com/reviews/Morbid_Angel/Altars_of_Madness/191/OzzyApu

    What is the point of that round-up rating and TOTAL points if he divides it by ten in the end?

    Usually, it's the negative reviews that get on my nerves. However, there are exceptions... A review for Naglfar's Pariah:

    ^ Reminds me of Cythraul's ANUSreview parody. The subject was Demilich iirc. I think we could find more dumb reviews of this sort on ANUS.

    I just hate it when someone gives an album 0% - people that hate a band and review the album just to give it 0% and reduce the average rating - i suppose it's the same as fanboys giving 100% but it still fucking shits me.

    Yeah but that's why the scale is 0-100, not 30-90. That's why sites choose the average rating. I understand why people rate something 0 if they just don't find any quality in the music and if they exaplain why it's offensive (as the Pantera disser did). I find it more explicable to rate something zero than to rate something 100/100 tbh.
