1895 old reviews have been added to The Corroseum

This is without a doubt one of the most important and gamechanging updates to the site in many years, and for me it will probably result in a shift of focus back to the very original intent of this webpage: To review old, forgotten Heavy Metal vinyl! ...mainly because now it won't just be random additions to a small heap of random reviews anymore, but the building of a Proper Rare Metal Archive.
/.../
ATTENTION: Since the fall of 2018, the Corroseum's review-archive is no longer the sole work of The Corroseum!

...Instead, the old reviews of the now defunct Metalpage.de website has been incorporated into this part of the site, making it a 2000+ titles database of rare Steel! About 600 of those reviews were in turn adopted from the long dead and sadly missed Metal-Treasures site in 2004, which happened to be the first website I contributed reviews for ages ago. So, 'Full Circle', of sorts. The completion-work of this huge, decades old collective project now lives on here and it will continue to grow with the aim of documenting every last piece of Obscure Olde Heavy Metal vinyl worth a mention. This goal will never be reached, but the journey towards this unreachable peak will be an adventure in Metal-exploration I hope you'll all enjoy following..
Cool huh?

Since the transfer into the Corroseum-framwork was automated in many parts, I haven't been able to check every single one of the pages, so I could really use some help with spotting stuff like missing/wrong pictures, factual errors, out-of-date rarity-ratings etc.

:shock:

Wow! Interesting ... solution of sorts. Hope this will drag more active members to the forum.

Wohow! I checked a few of them and I see you have actually dressed them in uniform site design. Looks phenomenal. Chapeau, DaN!

THIS IS GREAT! Thank you!
Read some reviews for old times sake.
btw: The ARMAGEDDON (Cyprus) has some repetitive paragraphs at the end.

Just a little detail: in this one track 5 is listed as "Luiza Empieces Otra Vez" when it should read "Quiza Empieces Otra Vez".
