I'm unemployed right now as well, so I'm going to try to do a few at least. Not sure how many I'll be able to do but I'm hoping to do at least 10.

lol Thanks for the motivation, right now I seem to be cranking them out at more of a moderate pace relative to my more prolific challenges of yesteryear, but I'll try to see if I can match your 8 before the day is out.

@hells_unicorn, thanks for the two reviews. They are a good reading. I will forward the links to the band.

https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Goat_Casket/3540471424
After three reviews I had the feeling to repeat myself and the third release left me somewhat annoyed.
I actually had the hope that this band would be fun ... which it is not ...

My pleasure, the band has a pretty good sound that reminds me a little of MindMaze, who are local to my area. It's funny, I specifically was going to avoid any kind of surprise, Secret Satan-like reviews for this challenge, and I did 2 in my first day. lol

Submitted my first, the plan is to write at least 1 per day (= 7) and see if I can go over that. This has been a good excuse to give more listens to some albums that have been waiting for a bit.

Reviewed Gaurithoth's last album.

Been on a summer vacation for a bit over a week now. I thought I could write about a hundred review during holidays, but nah, this is the first one in quite a long time. Still almost a week to go, but I also got other plans...

I'm gonna make a prediction and say that Helloween's new album "Helloween" is gonna be the most reviewed album for this challenge.

I've got a review for it in the works for Sonic Perspectives, and I have a feeling that anyone else writing for another webzine will probably follow suit. We had a similar thing happen with Amon Amarth's "Deceiver Of The Gods" because it came out during a review challenge.

It would be shitty to review it if you're only hearing it just as it comes out tomorrow though - give albums some time to digest.

True, but I've had the promo for about 2 weeks, so it's had more than enough time to digest, any longer and it'll qualify as constipation. lol

I meant to say thanks to Slater for reviewing the Soulskinner album. I wanted to review it myself but didn't really feel I'd got the picture about it, which is why it's in the Pool on page 1. Cheers for that, glad you liked it!

Same, was at a busy law firm last challenge so didn't want to participate much at all (yay, covid related layoffs!). Not sure I'll ever make the effort to gun for top place again, but trying to get a good handful out a day. Good excuse to keep up the writing if nothing else. Still not canceling any engagements and watching soccer games, though - I remember that one challenge Derigin was roasting me hard for trying to cancel beer/movie night on him because I was worried I'd lose my lead (which I did, briefly). Got an ear blockage anyway that can't get treated until near the end of the week, so makes listening to music all day a bit of a pain right now.

It's not a good time for me as it's end of the school year but I think I'll be busier with grading next week so I can at least 1 everyday.

Not sure the Helloween should be counted. The album release date was wrong. It's not out until Friday.

All of mine will be around 90% or higher... just not found anything lately that made me want to bash it. But maybe eventually.

Yeah, I checked the press release that came with my promo again and couldn't find any info about the Japanese version being release 2 days early, so that makes sense. I'll just re-submit it on Friday, it's among several reviews I was tasked to write for Sonic Perspectives this week and I got it in early because Helloween is considered a "Big Name".

So far it's looking like I'll have a moderately high total this week, usually when I go over 50 reviews I'm to about 20 by this point, but I will have more to submit this evening.

Alright, I cranked out four this morning to make up for my absence. I have a busy work day following lunch, so I'll see what I can do tonight, if I can squeeze in anymore.

I've been submitting a few. This has been a fun experience so far. I'm hoping I can get back into the swing of writing music commentary and submit reviews on a regular basis. Cheers everyone.

After reading that raucous Speedboozer review (check out the whack cover to their Still Ugly, Still Pissed, Still Hate You sophomore) can't quite fathom how a band with so many similar artists tabulations evaded writers' dragnet for so long...Also, what is up with Those Raunchous Brothers? (Is that even a word?) Don't they realize they're are 6'8", 300 lbs gays out there who could stomp bigots like them right into the ground? Don't even get me started on tough old transvestite queens, as Vancouver is full of 'em.

By the way, Jophelerx's USPM guide is the shit! (as in, indelibly great, notwithstanding fond usage of the word "comprehensive")

One last thing: I'm bound to get nightmares tonight after glimpsing that weirdo Rutarp's artist page (photo), from Ukrainian oddity Semargl - rhyming as it does with "gargle"!

Had a very nice reviewing run (my) yesterday afternoon and evening, I don't think I'll get another day better than that this challenge. I have no expectations of doing a lot at the weekend because I assume my wife will find some plans to keep me busy. So that's the time to stage your comeback Hells!

Thanks a lot dude! I really appreciate the shout-out (and yes I admit to being a bit fond of the word "comprehensive" in the title haha).

lol I think you may have this won, I'll be more likely to just barely fend off Thumbman for the 2nd place slot. Today and tomorrow should be productive, but Sunday will probably see me doing very little given family related stuff. I think next challenge will be my time to really give a go at cracking that 100 review mark that has eluded me for the past 14 years.

Edit: Whelp, it looks like I'll be duplicating a couple of albums that were just hit, as Sonic Perspectives had also assigned me the latest Sunrise and Entierro releases. I'd skip them in favor of getting the collective count up, but I already spent much of the week listening to them for this purpose.

Two days left and I'm already suffering from Virgin Album-Reviewing Spree Burnout. :ugh:

I honestly don't know what else to review for the last two days.
