I never liked Gromen's reviews when he wrote for Metal Maniacs.  He's always had shitty taste from what I can recall.

What a lame review, I guess he didn't even bother listening to the album at all ...

Does somebody pay this guy?  One freaking paragraph?  Nice journalism there pal.  I could've done that with just the track list we already knew about.

It sounded like a positive review.

I guess I don't understand the instant anger?

I find it pretty strange that in all the reviews that i've seen they say that Livia only sings on the last song.
She has confirmed herself that it's about the same amount as on TPM.

Hello, it is I, Gutten Tag, I look at critics like this. If a critic says that something completly sucks, go and check it out because it is probably the best work ever. If they say something is awesome and go on about it for a month, avoid it like the plague. Anyway, that's how I look at it. :king:

I think in a similar fashion. Critics opinions mean very little to me, hell I loved the movie "Airheads" and critics crucified that flick.

I choose to form my own opinions, be it a movie, cd or a game.

Band official forums are the last place you say you can't wait until their album leaks.

lol, he edited that pretty fast so it seems :gah:

It sounded like a positive review.

I guess I don't understand the instant anger?

same here, the review doesn't say much, he isn't giving well founded positive or negative critisism, so it's kinda neutral, i don't see the reason to bash it... (not saying that this is a good review... far from, 'cause he realy is saying nothing at all :gah:)

I agree. I could write better review myself, if I only hear one song of the album.
When reviewer can't write better and longer text he should think why he is the reviewer?

I write album reviews in Finnish, so I'm very disappointed about that poor critic.

Doesnt matter. What's really important is what his true fans (like us) think of the album anyway.  People can review an album all they want but its what it means to me that truly matters.   :king:

This is actually the most promising thing I’ve seen concerning the new album (even more than the updates, and “Never Ending Hill”. I’m not familiar with how Brave Words normally rates bands, but 7 out of 10 is pretty good, better than average. Metal Maniacs was always blunt about King’s music, but at least they gave you a basic idea of what it sounded like, not necessarily wether it’s good or bad. Judging from this review, I’m fairly certain that there will be some good songs that will salvage an album that so far for me had it’s hopes dashed by “Never Ending Hill”.

Nice post!
Thanks.  That's always been my opinion though.  I'm gonna like what I like and that's it.  If you dont like it, suit yourself.  If he truly believes the album deserves a 7, then hey...thats his loss.

The album hasn't even been released yet! Unless you've heard an advance copy, how can you know that 7/10 wasn't a fair mark?

I dont.  I was saying if that's what he gives it then that's his opinion.  But yes, I am somewhat guilty of "assuming" the album will be more than a 7 due to my faith in King Diamond.  I believe a lot of us do that from time to time because we are such big fans.

Definately more than a 7/10 in my opinion. That person who wrote the review is probably a 30-second-skip-listener. 10 seconds at the beginning 10 in the middle and 10 at the end of the song  :fingers:

Lol.  I know you have heard the entire album, I assume at least 300x by now.  It would be great if you would be so kind as to give us YOUR review, as I am in major suspense.  I'd really like to know how good it really is from a true King fan.   :D:
