    October 16 02:27 AM

    October 2 12:45 PM
  • Atari how's it going man? haven't talked to you in a few
    September 24 01:42 PM
  • Judio! Hey man, if you're interested and have some time to spare, I just released a new LP with another user and I would love to hear what you think of it.
    September 12 03:00 PM

    September 11 01:27 PM
  • ScuroFantasma congrats on hitting 50 reviews dude
    September 10 11:13 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey dude any chance you could get a quick read of my latest rev? You're good at picking little mistakes out... only if you aren't busy. and congrats again, you're one of the most consistent user writers IMO
    September 10 05:06 PM
  • Atari stoked for you dude! also agreed with judio **** whoever negged you lol
    September 10 05:05 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Yeezus is a strange case. People either hate it or love it. Me? I think it's alright.
    September 10 05:03 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Unfortunately, no. I've been jamming a lot of Kanye and Converge over the past few days.
    September 10 04:56 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Haha, yeah. Any new digs?
    September 10 04:51 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Don't be so sure. High school is a bitch.
    September 10 04:40 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, I've got half that many at 4 months.
    September 10 03:34 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Eh, not much tbh. Also, 50 REVIEWS!!!!11!!!
    September 10 03:28 PM
  • Atari No rush I'm just excited for u and wanted to give u a hard time :)
    September 10 12:36 AM
  • Atari hey buddy how you doing? hope you're not planning on disappearing before posting your 50th review lol
    September 9 06:51 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Wholly phuck, you're a 49er.
    September 7 06:49 PM
  • Atari You going with one of those albums on that list for your 50th? I'm excited to see what u come up with man. Hopefully I can get back in the reviewing game soon as well I've just been so damn busy with moving etc. and I don't even have my computer set up yet lol
    September 5 10:28 AM
  • Atari just 1 more review until 50! ;)
    September 4 07:46 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot (Cont) sorry for bombarding you man, I know you're busy, but what do you think of the casual approach I took on my Half Japanese rev?
    September 3 10:25 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Right on man, any chance you'd elaborate/give examples? It's just that the 'find your voice' topic is something I've seen from a few other users/staff but hasn't quite *clicked in my writing yet
    September 2 12:31 PM
  • Atari nice man, glad you had a good time : ]
    September 2 12:29 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Sweet, glad you approved. Yeah I'm still kinda messing around with different ideas, so I'm glad it 'worked'
    September 2 12:22 PM
  • Atari how was the concert on friday dude?
    September 2 12:04 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Hey man could you scope out my latest and lemme know if there's any slip-ups? You've got a good eye for that
    September 2 11:08 AM
  • Atari yeah i hear you man. My wife puts up with me and I put up with her haha. no relationship is perfect there are always gonna be obstacles but at least you seem to be positive about it
    August 29 04:46 PM
  • Atari that's rough man sorry to hear that. it sounds like you are pretty patient and understanding with her though. hang in their pal, hopefully things will turn around soon!
    August 29 03:31 PM
  • Atari damn dude hope it all works out for you :/ I'm always cool with talking about it if you want to but if not that's cool either way. And yeah as far as living in my brothers house it's not that I'm ashamed (I pay him rent monthly so it's not like I'm freeloading) but at the same time it's been kind of lame not having my own place this past year haha
    August 29 03:10 PM
  • Atari yeah i mean it's not my first choice for a house but it's a nice cozy little house i suppose. Besides, I don't know if I told you before, but my wife and I have been living with my brother, so anything beats living in my brothers basement lol.
    August 29 02:48 PM
  • Atari haha, nice sounds like a good time! yeah i'm just trying to make it through the work day as well. Friday's always take the longest lol. I'm antsy to start moving stuff to the new house tonight so that's not exactly making the day go any faster
    August 29 02:28 PM
  • Atari sup buddy?
    August 29 01:56 PM
  • Judio! no worries, there was never any rush. :)
    August 28 01:20 PM
  • Atari thanks man! yeah i'm excited about it but i really wish i could afford to just buy a house. ah well, i'm still (sort of) young i guess lol
    August 28 11:35 AM
  • Atari Pretty good buddy what about u? I'm moving into a new house Saturday so I'm gonna be busy as hell but I'm stoked haha
    August 27 02:50 AM
  • Judio! hope you dig! be sure to tell me what you think.
    August 27 01:12 AM
  • Judio! here you are man :)
    August 27 01:06 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges ;(
    August 26 09:24 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I'll try not to let that one go to my head ;)
    August 26 09:21 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yeah dude I'm always willing to hear it so keep it coming :)
    August 26 09:18 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot appreciate the input dude! I'm standing my ground on this one though, lol. Coltrane's 'skill' or proficiency doesn't really coincide with the point I wanted to drive home.
    August 26 09:12 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Still not as ridiculous as Death Grips.
    August 26 09:00 PM
  • Gyromania thanks man, but i doubt it =/
    August 26 08:03 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Dem Morning Effort song titles.
    August 26 04:45 PM
  • Judio! :D dude thanks so much for saying that! That means a lot, and I'm excited to hear what you think! It'll be out later today, I'll be making a list about. It's only five tracks but I went super-conceptual with it so hopefully that'll make up for the short length.
    August 26 04:06 PM
  • Judio! Yeah man I think you'll dig. I'm not gonna hype up the EP or anything but I've been dying to tell someone about it lol.
    August 25 07:41 PM
  • Judio! I'm glad to hear that man! Oh and by the way, on an unrelated note, I thought I'd let you in on a secret little EP I'm working on right now. It's gonna be a sequel to my first EP, and so far it's turning out to be my darkest album yet sooooo stay tuned.
    August 25 04:49 PM
  • Judio! Yeah I'm trying not to make a habit of it and only make it a weekend thing. That sucks that you had to leave college :\
    August 25 03:23 PM
  • Judio! I can believe it. College has been fun so far, but I know that soon the schoolwork is gonna hit me hard and getting drunk every night is not gonna be an option.
    August 25 02:54 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Agreed. Fall is probably my favorite season. Not too hot, not too cold, and better than spring.
    August 25 02:49 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Well, I live in New England, where the WINTERS SUCK ASS. Although I'm not sure how that works out in Ohio.
    August 25 02:32 PM
  • Judio! I'm really loving it so far! I mean it's been kind of difficult to keep up with my writing and music making but going to one of the biggest party schools in America definitely has its benefits haha.
    August 25 02:24 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I'm stoked some of you guys are like Morning Effort so much
    August 25 02:03 PM
  • Judio! **** dude I totally forgot to check your newest review! Sorry about that, I'll look it over after class. I started college last week so I've been kind of out of it lately. Forgive me man you know I love you dearly.
    August 25 02:01 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, I feel ya. Summer's almost over, man. IT SUCKS.
    August 25 02:00 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges And completely ignore the return of DiCaprio? SHAME ON YOU! But yeah, he is the man.
    August 25 01:18 PM
  • Arcade Cheers, the dumbassery stops now! :)
    August 25 12:24 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges DiCaprio is back, bitches!
    August 23 09:10 AM
  • SowingSeason It's a great review, I commented on it and offered a few minor grammatical pointers. Keep it up, your reviews are always worth reading in my opinion.
    August 22 10:58 PM
  • Atari that becoming album was a lot cooler on my second listen lol. i had a feeling it would grow on me more
    August 22 07:45 PM
  • Atari not sure where that profile pic is from, but it's sweet haha
    August 22 11:53 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges I wanted to change it to another gif, but as we all know, there's no way in **** that's possible without a mod's assistance.
    August 22 11:00 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges I lost my gif avatar, man.
    August 22 10:18 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I know what you mean
    August 22 09:05 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Hey so I gave your review a more thorough read. Really good review and honestly not anything wrong, but I would've done a bit more to elaborate on the 'distorted guitars'. You mention this as characteristic of pop-punk which is a bit of an oversimplified way to put it, IMO. Also, you associate the guitarwork with nostalgia, but didn't really explain how...Super minor nitpicks but that's all I could find.
    August 22 12:40 AM
  • Atari I didn't dislike it dude, just wasn't that captured by it on my first listen. The first time I heard wolves in the throne room -two hunters I thought it was overrated and kinda boring, but now I love it so u never know it may grow on me ;)
    August 21 10:00 PM
  • Atari so i jammed abigail williams - becoming, but i'm not sure what i think yet lol. Sometimes bm albums take me longer to digest - but it didn't do much for me on my first listen tbh : / I'll be sure to give them another shot later though
    August 21 06:05 PM
  • Judio! Yeah sure dude. I'll look it over tonight
    August 21 03:43 PM
  • Atari "Similar Bands: Wolves in the Throne Room, Emperor, Weakling, Agalloch" YES
    August 21 03:24 PM
  • Atari i could care less if black metal is considered "kvlt" or not to be honest lol. Most the stuff i dig in the genre is atmospheric bm anyways so prolly not kvlt haha. I'll let you know what i think after i check it out!
    August 21 03:10 PM
  • Atari on another note, i think i'll try abigail williams today :D
    August 21 01:56 PM
  • Atari well i'm glad it went from a soundoff to a review cause it turned out fantastic man :] honestly probably my favorite review from you. I'm stoked for you to hear Gospel now but not sure it will hit you on the same emotiona level as oh common life
    August 21 12:38 PM
  • Atari holy s*** man, stoked to read it!
    August 21 11:41 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Done. Great review, man.
    August 21 10:30 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Yeah man, I already commented (oops). I'll sit down and give it a legit comb through after work lol
    August 21 10:13 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Posted a review the other day, could you give it a skim and share a thought or two?
    August 21 10:09 AM
  • Atari i'll definitely let you know man
    August 20 02:09 PM
  • Atari no i haven't but judging by your most recent rating of them i guess i need to check them out ;)
    August 20 12:43 PM
  • Atari yeah dude agreed it's awesome! You'd probably dig Saor - Aura as well the dude from panopticon actually does the drums for that album haha
    August 20 11:50 AM
  • Atari nice man, hope you dig them! I'd personally say to start with either suburbia or the greatest generation, but the upsides is good too, just not as good as those 2
    August 19 05:34 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges It is a bit of an elitist thing, isn't it? Look at dudes like Brostep, Sowing, and even Jombomb himself. They welcome in new users and reviewers. They don't just blow them off because of a few mistakes. Hell, look at the s*** that happened with Skele and is currently happening with Verm.
    August 19 05:26 PM
  • Atari dude if you haven't heard the wonder years yet i am beyond stoked for you haha
    August 19 05:16 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Just noticed that he actually has the flagged review for the Manners album. Now he's DEFINITELY on your s*** list, haha.
    August 19 04:06 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I think he negged the review after saying that, lol.
    August 19 02:13 PM
  • Atari by the way since you like man overboard you might dig their compilation "the human highlight real". It's just like all their EPs made into one album i think. 'I saw behemoth and it ruled' is one of my all time favorite songs by them
    August 19 01:56 PM
  • Atari Sweet man you've been on quite the pop punk binge let me know if u want more recs
    August 19 01:28 PM
  • Atari Haha nice man! You might also dig Gospel as it's similar to oh common life. And to answer your question from earlier I like man overboard's debut, but I think their self titled is their best ;)
    August 19 11:35 AM
  • Atari yeah i really dug search the city's debut but i haven't heard it in a long time so thanks for the reminder ;) son of a gun is a jam
    August 18 07:11 PM
  • Atari have you heard any albums by them other than the new one? All I have to offer is my own confusion is great - it has detriot which is one of my favorite songs by them
    August 18 06:48 PM
  • beachdude I loved Glassjaw, I've been a letlive. fan for a while and it's awesome to see where some of their influence came from. I just listened to Say Hello to Sunshine recently and was blown away, I couldn't believe it's the same band that did What It Is to Burn. People compared that album to Glassjaw a lot in the comments so that's what made me check out Glassjaw.
    August 18 06:36 PM
  • Atari lol yeah i think the vocals on fireworks seem to be an acquired taste for a lot of people. When I get around to it i'll check neck deep and i'll give state champs another go haha
    August 18 06:22 PM
  • VheissuCrisis Here's my breakdown of Manners, finally. 4/5 albeit on the lower side of a 4, but those lyrics are so crushing and heartfelt that I found it hard not to bump it because of how it made me feel. From Rent onwards the album gets really strong. Rent, Legacy, particularly the ending of Binge and the final track are probably my favourite moments here. Best hardcore album I've heard in a fair while!
    August 18 04:56 PM
  • beachdude Will do man... right now I'm listening to a bunch of classic post hardcore albums I never checked out. Just finished with Glassjaw's discography and now I might check out some classic Thrice.
    August 18 04:36 PM
  • Atari nice man! I love fireworks they actually remind me of NFG. State Champs is good but I don't love them, and I haven't heard neck deep yet
    August 18 03:41 PM
  • Atari hey man if i remember correctly you dig new found glory. You should check out the music video for their new song 'Selfless'. It should be one of the first things that pops up on youtube if you just search "new found glory". Can't get the song out of my head haha
    August 18 03:23 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I posted my second electronic review ever today.
    August 18 10:23 AM
  • beachdude Hmm okay, what would you recommend?
    August 17 08:17 PM
  • beachdude Thanks man, appreciate it. You're a great writer yourself. It seems you're more into heavier stuff than me however, I'm trying to get more into metal... got any recs for death metal or similar stuff?
    August 17 06:00 PM
  • Brostep haha thanks, much appreciated
    August 16 03:04 PM
  • Jom tinypic doesn't work for me - if you can get it onto imgur I can have a better look. No guarantees, though, depending on the .gif's filesize.
    August 16 12:41 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot actually scratch that, don't really feel like reviewing Xothist lol. I honestly don't know where to begin with this
    August 16 11:22 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot on a different note, I think your rotten species review could be a *bit* more detailed... I didn't really get much from it, other than it being a good grind EP. Again, it's a well written, concise review, but maybe just a bit more as to what makes it worth a listen, and what you felt listening to it...
    August 16 10:35 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yeah I think I'm gonna pump out my Xothist review today, which I think a few people on here are stoked about... I'd rec that if you haven't heard it already
    August 16 10:06 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot thanks dude, I've been sticking with new releases for the most part, but obviously have a better shot at getting featured if they're from already successful bands... it's a cruel world lol.
    August 16 10:01 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I'd like to, yeah. Gotta build up a repertoire I guess, and review more albums that people actually care about lmao. It'd be a long shot if I applied this Feb, but maybe next..
    August 16 09:51 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Do you think you'll be contrib at some point? You're probably one of the more consistent reviewers on here
    August 16 09:27 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Yeah man, appreciate the kind words. I do throw more commas than necessary, so I'll keep an eye on that. Thanks!
    August 16 09:05 AM
  • Brostep absolutely haha. my next review should be a flat 3.0 though
    August 15 07:12 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot ... :)
    August 15 06:36 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges No prob. What gif are you gonna pick?
    August 15 04:47 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I uploaded it to tinypic and asked Jom to change it for me.
    August 15 03:43 PM
  • Betray Yeah. I think I have Red. White. Green and This World Is Ours at .5 higher. They're not the greatest band ever by any means, but the older ones are fun. Check This World Is Ours first, if you dig it, try out R.W.G.
    August 15 01:48 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges It's finally up. Feel free to let me know how it turned out!
    August 14 01:39 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey man, definitely wouldn't mind some more feedback
    August 13 07:45 PM
  • VheissuCrisis Its the voice bro, no matter how much I enjoy the songwriting his voice just grates on me haha.
    August 13 04:28 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges It's for a band called King 810. Listen to "Anatomy 1:1" for a laugh.
    August 13 10:40 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges It's probably gonna be either a 1 or a 1.5, so expect some degree of rantiness.
    August 13 10:17 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges I'm actually currently in the process of writing my first negative review.
    August 13 10:10 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges I'm gonna review one of my favorite (if not my favorite) albums ever for 100, and my least favorite for number 101.
    August 13 09:56 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ah, a personal review. Sweet. I already have a plan for reviews 100 and 101, haha.
    August 13 09:54 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges 50 reviews and a 100% approval rating. Fantastic. Got anything big planned?
    August 13 09:32 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Will do. You're only 7 reviews away from 50!
    August 13 08:48 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges You think I'd dig?
    August 12 11:02 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Dat Norma Jean soundoff.
    August 12 04:56 PM
  • Atari no way man i don't think that's goofy at all... I can't even imagine how hard that must have been (and still is) to go through. If you dedicate a review to him for your 50th, i'm sure it would be one of your most passionate and meaningful reviews to date!
    August 12 01:46 PM
  • Atari damn dude that's rough :/
    August 12 01:20 PM
  • Atari hmmm i'll definitely have to check them out if they're similar to august burns red! and yeah man deark jack is a pretty cool movie/documentary about andrew mcmahaon's struggle with leukemia but it's prolly more inspirational than it is depressing
    August 12 12:33 PM
  • Atari hey man late response but nah i haven't heard of forevermore they pretty cool? By the way i just noticed your jack's mannequin soundoff and i'm just curious if you've seen the dear jack movie?
    August 12 11:37 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges I changed my profile pic in honor of him, and have been listening to nothing but Modest Mouse and Empire! Empire! for the past half hour or so.
    August 12 08:43 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges I know, man T_T
    August 11 11:06 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Dude, Robin Williams is dead.
    August 11 11:01 PM
  • Atari By the way I see u wrote another review, I'll check it out later tonight man!
    August 11 10:51 PM
  • Atari Sweet man! Which album did u check out and did u think they were slightly similar to darkest hour?
    August 11 10:43 PM
  • ASnideReturns Here's the link to the Sputnik page with all the details on it -
    August 11 06:30 PM
  • ASnideReturns Hey Signals, Insurrection and I are releasing a collab EP in November, would you be down to listen to it?
    August 11 05:04 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I used to write a bunch of s***ty reviews for Pathology in my first month or so on here, so if they are releasing a new album, count me in.
    August 11 02:32 PM
  • ASnideReturns Thanks man!
    August 11 01:53 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges They're working on new material?
    August 11 01:24 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, he/she/it resorted to racial and homophobic slurs in the other thread to try and get a rise out of people.
    August 11 10:56 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges "Don't b sad u r beautiful in yr own way"
    August 11 10:30 AM
  • Atari of course man, you deserve it!
    August 8 12:47 PM
  • Atari Sorry about last night buddy I was planning to read your review but got distracted :/ I'm definitely excited to read what u came up with I'll be reading it once I get to work!
    August 8 11:15 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Eh, a lot of people tend to be really uptight and reluctant to throw out a 5. Me? Not so much. I have some pretty strange 5s myself.
    August 8 08:58 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Sorry, it was well past midnight when I got your shout. I'll check it out now.
    August 8 08:06 AM
  • Atari Sweet man I'll check it out soon!
    August 8 01:24 AM
  • Ecnalzen I think Let The Future Tell The Truth is better, but that's just me.
    August 8 12:09 AM
  • Ecnalzen Metalcore with all cleans? Interesting. Sounds like it could have some similarities to I Am Abomination. You might enjoy them if you haven't heard already. Let the Futures Tell the Truth is a pretty good album. Lots of riffs and soloing action with pretty good vocals.
    August 7 09:03 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Will do. Also, I just noticed: You have practically no 5s.
    August 7 04:42 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges No, I hasn't.
    August 7 04:05 PM
  • Atari yeah i hear you man. By the way, Veritas, Aequitas is such a jam haha
    August 7 02:26 PM
  • Ecnalzen I have not. I put their album up at work the other day, and I was wondering what kind of music they were. Besides your 3.5, what'd you think of it?
    August 7 02:25 PM
  • Atari would love to see a review for it by you man. And yeah it's a little long for a metalcore album i guess but i don't think it drags too much.
    August 7 11:48 AM
  • Atari Agreed dude, I'm still surprised the vocals fit the music so well. Glad u dug it! :)
    August 7 11:11 AM
  • Ecnalzen I will look into their solo stuff and see how their other project will turn out. Have you heard OC and Apollo Brown's album Trophies? I love it. It be some good hip hoppers.
    August 6 08:03 PM
  • VheissuCrisis Well that's spot on, I'm glad you got it and others probably will too. The most important thing I tried to convey throughout was that we like to dress things up, and we don't like to look at ruin. But ruin tells brilliant stories too, of the past and all the feelings/past activities associated with it.
    August 6 02:49 PM
  • Atari Cool : )
    August 6 01:59 PM
  • VheissuCrisis Good points, with emphasis on the tact. But not everyone is alike I guess, and I respect that well enough, ain't no hard feelings. That's true - I'm interested to know actually whether you get what I meant in my opening sentence, because up until it was pointed out I assumed I'd got my point across well.
    August 6 01:53 PM
  • Atari sup man you listen to wovenwar yet? No rush i'm just curious what you think of it when you check it out!
    August 6 01:40 PM
  • VheissuCrisis Haha, you the man Mark! Appreciate the comment given the criticism it took too.

  • Ecnalzen You saw that, huh? Ha ha, I really liked it at first, but I found the lyrics to be fairly to pretty awful throughout the album. Kind of ruined a lot of the songs for me.
    August 5 07:02 PM
  • Atari nice man : ) i don't know a ton of melodeath but i can give you a few more recs. If you haven't heard in flames their older stuff is pretty great melodeath. Dark Tranquility is pretty great too check the gallery by them but their whole discog is actually pretty consistent. Finally, Amon Amarth is pretty fun too, can't really think of any others off the top of my head haha
    August 5 03:37 PM
  • Atari Right on, they're definitely not too similar to insomnium, just a few parts on hidden hands reminded me of them a little bit. Insomnium is strictly melodeath tho no metalcore influence. If you do check them try "Above the Weeping World" it's awesome and has a really cool atmosphere as well
    August 5 02:01 PM
  • Atari also i'm retarded i've already heard deliver us haha. Gonna jam it again though it's definitely a cool album. what you think of undoing ruin?
    August 5 01:33 PM
  • Atari sweet dude. I like how hidden hands definitely has a melodeath vibe instead of just straight up metalcore. Kind of reminds of of insomnium at times you heard them?
    August 5 01:24 PM
  • Atari oh damn, i didn't even realize you had deliver us 5'd haha. I'll check that one out next then!
    August 5 01:20 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Thanks, man. You're probably the best non-contrib reviewer right now.
    August 5 12:52 PM
  • Atari ;) by the way i've been jamming darkest hour dude. hidden hands of a sadist nation might be my favorite so far
    August 5 12:35 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges As I've said before, you, Atari, Vheissu, and Judio are good guys. You have the ambition and the work ethic to make it to the big leagues.
    August 5 12:10 PM
  • Atari just noticed you have ambient in your pie chart, that's sweet man!
    August 5 11:54 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges I could definitely see you making staff in the next few years. You seem like the type of guy who could undertake the responsibilities of staff without behaving like an immature prick.
    August 5 10:39 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges The thing is, even though staff is technically the best position on the site, there's no way I'd take it, at least not for a little bit, because I know that I'm not ready to handle the duties and responsibilities behind some of the staff position.
    August 5 10:16 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Brendan would be great as a contributor, but I'm not sure about staff.
    August 5 09:59 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges I (fortunately) wasn't there for most of it, but all I know is something about pedophilia came up, s*** spiraled way out of control, the mods nuked it. He tried putting it back up again, same s*** happened, nuke. Then, Arcade comes and gives it a 0.5 review, makes it way too ranty and over-the-top, chaos ensues, and people get banned.
    August 5 09:29 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges I honestly don't know. Apparently, it's for similar immature s*** like the last time. Arcade got banned and demoted, along with Fripp, someguest, and sixdegrees. They'll be back in a month.
    August 5 09:02 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges So, the newest BABYMETAL review got nuked and a bunch of people got banned. Again.
    August 5 08:40 AM
  • ScuroFantasma Congratulations on the feature sig!

  • ExplosiveOranges FEATURE BROS! **** YEAH!
    August 4 10:09 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Congrats on the feature, man!
    August 4 09:19 AM
  • Atari Ya I hear u haha. Wasn't trying to say u don't just that it's metalcore with basically all cleans so it's prolly hit and miss for some people ;)
    August 3 06:34 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, that was when I first met you. Memories......... Yeah, now that I think about it, it is a little bit difficult to get through the whole damn thing in one sitting.
    August 3 09:29 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges I gave it a 4 a while back in my fairly s***ty 2nd review, not sure if it still holds up.
    August 2 11:19 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Recent Tracks: Carnifex - Salvation Is Dead
    August 2 10:04 PM
  • Atari finally finished my review for the review a random album game if you wanna check it out! hopefully it doesn't suck lol damn writers block. Feel free to give some constructive criticism : )
    August 2 03:59 PM
  • Atari well i haven't heard their debut actually, but children of fire is pretty great. One of the singers of Oh, Sleeper is also the vocalist for the new wovenwar album which i enjoyed. It's like all clean vocals tho so not sure if you'd like that one haha. But yeah check Children of Fire!
    August 1 05:38 PM
  • Atari you heard oh, sleeper dude?
    August 1 05:26 PM
  • VheissuCrisis Second listen through and Living Will just ****ing floored me, one or two more listens till I rate but its easily 3.5 maybe a 4.
    August 1 04:01 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Man, why you gotta hit me like that in the feels? ;)
    August 1 02:47 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Honestly, I never really came onto this site expecting to become as involved and ambitious as I am now. I was just a dude who really liked metal music and really liked writing.
    August 1 02:38 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Also, I forgot about Vheissu, haha! Nah, I'm sort of in the middle where I try to be somewhat kind to newer users, but if it turns into a sinking ship, I become kind of a dickhead.
    August 1 02:29 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Nah man, there are certain people on this site (particularly Sowing, Atari, Omaha, and Judio, just to name a few) that are genuinely nice guys, and you're one of them.
    August 1 02:17 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, even you have your limits. At least it isn't like that guy who posted like 10 reviews in one day a few weeks ago.
    August 1 02:08 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I love how you're such a nice guy that you didn't even have the heart to tell the guy that his picks were s*** in the "Top Notch Deathcore" thread.
    July 31 08:47 PM
  • VheissuCrisis Only once through so far man! But a couple of tracks blew me away whilst I don't remember the rest, I'll need to hit the magic 3 spins and then I'll let you know.
    July 31 12:49 PM
  • Atari it's all good it is what it is haha. I think I just kinda fell out of the groove of reviewing when i started to write less frequently. the album is eskimo by the residents haha they're a weird band dude and all the members are anonymous. I could probabl find a lot to say about the band themselves, but describing their music is a different story...
    July 31 12:14 PM
  • Atari glad to hear it man. :] i'm actually suffering from writer's block lately which is why i'm only doing about a review a month lol. I guess right now it doesn't help that the album I'm trying to review is from the review a random album game and it's a really weird album lol
    July 31 11:54 AM
  • Atari dude, you've been reviewing like a mad man! lol
    July 31 11:42 AM
  • Judio! No prob bud, give me a couple minutes and I would be more than happy to give it a read.
    July 30 10:51 PM
  • TheMoreira Dude i just realised... You're 100% approval rating over 40 reviews. HOW ARE YOU NOT STILL A CONTRIBUTOR? Many cheers man
    July 29 01:49 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Just gave it a read. Apologies for being a little late, but I live on the East Coast, and got your shout around 11:00.
    July 26 09:10 AM
  • Judio! Sure thing man, will look it over in a little bit.
