I think this slipped... This is blatant trolling, not even fun :(

I think you just can't handle the high and inherent value of Lou's art.


I don't care for that album, yours is just base level trolling that should have no place here

My intention there was clearly not trolling, and that's all that matters. Reviews are supposed to be informative to the reader to let them know what they should expect. My review was simply a humorous one trying to point out how unintentionally comedic everything in there is. Nobody was insulted, and nobody other than you got uppity over it. You can blow any further complaints up yours, for that's where they belong.

I def agree about not trolling. Until this review was even pointed out, I probably never would had read it, tbh. As for me, Metallica stopped being any good after And Justice for all... that album will always remain their best album, and a true, and intense classic.

Needless to say, just read this review, and was def enjoyable read, def saw the humor you were trying to convey in your review. Well done, sir! :D

However, just now remember you from reading another one of your reviews... your Jäätyäkuu - Fagyhold review. Mine will def be immensely, and vastly different from your's (as I will be writing for that one, here very soon), as I very much have enjoyed that album a few times over, as well as supported on Bandcamp. Minus the score you gave was still well-written overall.

The first section of the review in particular is a rant but the rest is not too bad. It's a pretty good description of what I too thought of the album when I had a listen.

Zero description of how the album actually sounds. He's basically covering up the phrase "it sucks" with excessive hyperbole and comparisons to other bands that have nothing in common with Atheist. The guy's earlier reviews are pretty shitty already, but this I think has to go.

Good grief! I would have to agree... if nothing else, for this alone, I'm sure... "vocals are grating and horrible AF"...

Who in the hell writes "AF" in a review!??? :D Nails on chalkboard grating 'cringe'.... that's something you write maybe in a Fb status/ reply/ or, comment.... NOT in a review! I stopped reading after that haha :D

From that review, I only have the impression that the vocals are bad and the music is "horrendously composed"... no mention of any of the other instruments or why the album is so poor with regard to composition. He's so wrapped up in making excessive comparisons in literally every single review to any one of Pantera, Demilich, Morpheus Descends or whatever else he reviewed at least once, but has now gone off the deep end and just decided to compare this to everything he's seen or listened to that's bad for no apparent reason. He also has a really annoying tendency to repeat himself and use certain words and phrases over and over, so his writing is not just insufferable, it's formulaic as well.

Alright, I see that Anus_Canis has gained quite a bit of notoriety here. I went through some of his reviews last night, because his jump from Metallica and Pantera to Atheist of all bands drew my attention. I wanted to see what he had to say about one of my favorite bands.

Ok, the reviews are truly a hoot. But I'm interested to hear how much we should buy into some personal info that he's provided. Is he really 18 and a recent escapee from a restrictive Christian environment/community? Because, if those things are true, it does provide a different context for his reviews. They're not good, but the idea of a some kid documenting his discovery of metal in real time... I don't know, I kinda dig it. :D

Of course, we could be dealing with a troll, there's just something in the way the reviews are laid out that seems legit. They're remarkably naive, which, if you're trolling, is hard to emulate. There are always tell-tale signs of trolling when it happens, but I'm not seeing them here.

Yeah, we're pretty convinced he's just new to metal. It's pretty common for young people to start reviewing the classics, and to usually overly praise or criticize them. He has been improving, and if he keeps it up, in a few years time he may look back on his early reviews and wonder "Did I Really Write That?". For now, enjoy the nostalgia of watching someone discover metal and reviewing, much as it was for us when we were young.

I'm not sure why people are asking for reviews that go against their opinion to be taken down. I don't agree with plenty of reviews on this site, but I'm not demanding the mods to take them down for the sake of my opinion being "right".

Short and nondescriptive. Contains a grand total of one and a half sentences that bother to describe the music in any capacity, and none of em go into the "how it sounds" bit. Guy just threw together some grandiose epithets and called it at that.

Also, he does state that his review originates from an official publication to a webzine, but this is not a free pass to quality land, as far as I know. I've read some others out of curiosity, and they're... not good, to put it mildly.

Both too short to have any real value.

Spoiler: show
I am only assuming that I am in the right thread, if not I don't really fucking care at this point honestly. I really don't. So this thread reads "(AKA Why was this review accepted?"........ my question to you Morrigan, since you were the one to make this particular thread in the first place (as well as make the decision to go on a fucking deleting spree with my reviews, completely UNWARRANTED)..... the question should more like read as this: ""Why was this review accepted, and then DELETED?""

I am addressing BOTH you and MutantClannfear as he was your apparent lacky in this fucked as hell decision you made on having all 5 fucking Totale Vernichtung reviews deleted.... no, neither you or him could not take the time to PM me stating anything of this, could not take the time to save back to draft instead of me losing 4 fucking months of my time in writing those, no it seemed much easier to discuss amongst ya'll'selves to make this retarded fuck decision.

And, don't give me the "Nsbm" shit either, as my Aufgegeben review ((was)) still up, and that band is fucking blatant Nsbm. Totale Vernichtung is absolutely NOT, no matter what you Mods/ Metal lords so happen to think, it's been mentioned in interviews this, made fucking public, so don't even give me that fucking Goddamn shit!! Metantoine obviously had, had a problem with my supporting Totale Vernichtung, but that is not his fucking business who I listen to and who I choose to show my love and support for. If a band is on Metal-Archives, they are subject to review, and it was known on my M-A profile page how and why I write exactly how I do, I gave no special treatment over Totale Vernichtung as ALL bands I had written for, I had written with immense passion. So, don't you dare fucking single out Totale Vernichtung to me!! God fucking damn it!!

Those 5 reviews were NEVER rejected, all ACCEPTED within the past 4 fucking months, and were very appreciated not only by the band, but I have had a few people message me telling me that my reviews of his band got them to go and check him out, and expressed immense appreciation to me. Do you 2 fucking morons even realize what you have done????? Do you even???? I have watched and seen so much shit go through here and out, it isn't even funny. It's not even cool alot of stuff that some of you Metal lords I have seen do. Shit like this is one of many issues with this site!! I have been here for the LONG FUCKING HAUL, since 2006, and I am already ready to walk away from M-A, which at one time had truly meant something to me, it's all about fucking power and control from some of you, there is only one......................... only O N E Mod that still gets my respect as he has never been anything but honest with me, and that is Azmodes. I will always respect him regardless, the rest of you guys can fucking go to Goddamn hell for all I care. I will never regret writing this. Fred fucking Durst me if you guys want to, might as fucking well, cause guess fucking what???????????????????

I DON'T FUCKING CARE AS I WILL N O T BE COMING BACK. I am drunk and I am furiously angry as Goddamn hell, and I will look back on this and still not fucking care!!

Much love and respect always to you Azmodes............ fuck all the rest of you that were even in on this decision, that was HIGHLY unwaranted!! Fuck you guys really

Why is this new Nightfall review on the site? The reviewer doesn't get ''specific'' about the music until the forth (!) paragraph and even after reading that one, I'm still clueless. There are a lot of general explanations, but the lack of details make me confused.

It's a fine review. There's enough musical description.

So I was perusing a band page I'd recently discovered here and couldn't help but notice that some reviews were deleted, [https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Totale_Vernichtung/61880]. After reading the review for Feuerbesttatung, it made me want to go and explore the band's music in order to see if it was as good as the review said it was. Why was that review deleted? I can't find it anywhere.
