One from me, not sure if I'll do another yet. Depends on how much time I have.

Could the next reviewer's challenge go back to the old format of reviewing older albums with no reviews? I would much rather go back to not being restricted to new releases.

OK, give me a redraw. I can do Stalker first anyway.

That's because you (originally) said eff all about the actual album.


And I still think I said fuck all about it.

+1

Most of the rest of your negative reviews haven't been ill received on this site, so as long as you remember to talk about the actual album this time I say go for it. I doubt this band attracts the same crowd as Elder, so you're probably safe from the fanboy brigade. Wink

Or I wouldn't mind swapping it with the Deathcore album I got. Tongue

I don't mind taking it off your hands Patrick, I like it! Can do a swap with The White Swan - The White if you like. It's doom/sludge apparently though not heard it myself.

It's one of a few I want to get placed on my ranked 2017 list before the best of year vote has to be in but it's not my top priority.

I've been listening to one of mine in particular but won't have time to finish it this side of Christmas. Maybe between that and the New Year.

I've been busy with other things lately, but I'll give a couple listens to one of my albums tonight (probably Vinsta) and hopefully have a review up by Saturday, and then hopefully have a second one up next weekend. Once I get those two done, I'll likely review either Keldian or Bare Infinity as well, if I have time before I'm ready to get back into my promo reviews.

Review for my Vulture selection has been posted: http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/review/the-guillotine/387294

I thought I would rate this higher at first but I have a bad habit of assigning more stars than really aligns with my rating system. I'll have to change a few existing reviews before the best of year vote.

I'm at least going to look into the Pure Wrath split as well, and maybe do a couple of other reviews before the year is out.

Got my first one posted. I updated some of the info on it. Changed it from sludge to stoner, because it is, and updated the line-ups. Steven McDonald has actually joined The Melvins as a full member now.
