Bandcamp was founded in 2007 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandcamp / https://www.facebook.com/pg/Bandcamp/about/), so any release can't be released before that year. Use the advanced search to find some wrong dates though many of them are "unknown" dates: http://www.metal-archives.com/search/ad ... tal#albums
Like these: http://www.metal-archives.com/albums/Ar ... ons/557127
http://www.metal-archives.com/albums/In ... god/217077
http://www.metal-archives.com/albums/Ne ... ell/587453

Is there any way to retrieve the "real" date of a bandcamp release? :scratch:

The page source tells you when the page is published.
- If the release [date] shown on the page predates the date the page is published, go with the date the page is published.
- If it doesn't, go with it, i.e. go with the date shown on the page, not the date the page is published.

view-source:https://neurosis.bandcamp.com/album/enemy-of-the-sun
Ctrl+F (Publish_date) = 04 Oct 2016

EDIT: [date]

Most of those are versions, so I've simply set them to "Unknown".

These are parents and need to be looked into:

Done.

I've also updated the picture quality of some of these releases, too.
