Not that I care about the individual case but isn't there a policy of accepting band submissions that have much more info even if submitted a bit later than another submission of the same band? Or was there never such a policy? At least that's been a possible answer from moderators in the past when I've submitted bands before someone else but seen the other get accepted.

The difference in time was 5 minutes.

The difference in info was:
He: a Bandcamp link and nothing else (not even their one and only release!)
Me: two versions of the album, track lengths, lyrics, line-up, logo, location, seven links

I guess this would be the right thread to ask this. Would something like this be a worthy entry, or would it just fall into the sampler category?

Standard procedure is to add it if it's official, public and features no more than 6 participating artists. We don't really draw any distinctions between samplers and "proper" splits at this point.

Hello
Are links to pages on legit websites belonging to nazi bands to be removed? There have been some posts pointing that way but there isn't a clear official statement on the mater.

I'm asking I removed a link from this band and a mod asked me why.
https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Pogrom/3540503228

I'm not asking the mod privately since I guess this needs confirmation from another mod (and also so that other users can see it).

Thanks

Leave them for now. Just straight up removing the links is not a good solution, because people doing site work still need those links from an encyclopedic perspective to verify info, etc. We'll figure something out.

Okay, makes sense, thanks.

Are Bandcamp pages like these official? They seem odd in that the cover art is usually some band photo or logo, and the description to the right being quite amateurish:

"Compilasi Streaming And promotion Black Metal Indonesia Song"
https://sabdopatiproject.bandcamp.com/music
https://www.metal-archives.com/labels/Embek_Ireng/47483

"Labels for data backup and promotional media for Indonesian Black Metal & gothic songs.."
https://legionhitamnusantara.bandcamp.com/music
https://www.metal-archives.com/labels/L ... tara/58042

No these are not official. Probably a couple of those bands should be removed also for not having a valid release. The matter was previously overlooked or maybe someone checked the bands without giving a public announcement regarding the matter. In all cases all those releases should be tagged as unofficial. A moderator should check those bands since he has access to view the hidden notes so he can verify based on what these bands were accepted.

Hello, why the "wrong music genre" was removed from reports?

We are making some changes to how we list genres on the site. As long-time readers will know, the way we list sub-genres of metal on the site has changed over the years. When the site started 20 years ago, you'd find bands labeled as "Gothenburg" and "Gore Metal" and bands listed with "influences" of many other styles. As the full discographies of many bands ended up on the internet and the discographies of long-running bands kept growing, we often had to denote different eras (early/mid/later) and try to sum up a dozen albums. This became a point of contention, because metalheads deliberating subgenres are like goths arguing about what is and isn't goth - they're pedantic and insufferable.

All the bands on the site are metal, so that's what we'll call them.

"Metal"

No more sub-genre tags, descriptors, influences. No more "technical something/other metal with non-metal fusion influences."

"Metal"

The "wrong music genre" option will be removed from reports, and the genre-change thread in the suggestions and complaints forum will be retired. The deluge of emails regarding genres sent to webmaster@metal-archives.com will be answered with a link to listen to Manilla Road's 1982 album "Metal" and nothing further, lest we open the gates again. We'll never have to hear the word "djent" again and you'll be banned from the site or forum if you use it.

Hello.
New here to the forum. I'd like to talk about band appeals.
I've read the rules and guidelines there. But there's one info that nothing found.

I'd like submit the band, let's say the name X Y. This band also have alternate spelling XY (without space).
One official social media username and logo design reads XY. Official videos title and description and another social media, it reads X Y.
But XY is blacklisted, X Y is not. Both same country.

What should I do? Should I request to moderator to blacklist the alternate spelling one first to avoid blacklist evasion before create a thread or just create a thread on band appeals?

Thanks.

If you think the band is metal, simply create an Appeal with both variations in the title and explain the situation in the opening post.

Ok, so there's this artist I wanna add to the band queue that only released an EP before changing their name and releasing.. ...nothing else.

Should I submit the band under the original or new name?

What makes a cover for a digital release "fully defined"? I just ran into this band on bandcamp where all the releases are just random artworks taken from other places on the internet. The only exception is this one where the artist edited on the title of the album. Is that valid?

Why aren't discographies of major bands locked for newbs anymore?

That's good to know. Thanks, Derigin.
I noticed that Judas Priest's page wasn't locked, and I assumed it was a general thing.

Strange. 'cause this version was added by a newb:
https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/97//1061768
Obviously I have no clue how this works.

Disco locks don't apply to versions.
