What's the way to deal with the releases on Bandcamp pages such as those? They're Bandcamp pages to releasing old and often rare demos and albums from bands, generally hailing from the same area. Unlike most demo blogspots, they feature quality masters instead of shitty cassette rips and they are sanctioned by the bands somehow, otherwise they'd get banned, so their releases can be considered to be official. I don't think they're labels and they don't claim to be either. How should they be mentioned in case that was necessary?


Discogs considers a least DuPage County Hardcore a label:

Like I said, I disagree with this

RateYourMusic considers them to be official releases too but doesn't count them as the label:
https://dupagecountyhardcore.bandcamp.c ... m/stampede

I've added a few releases where I've noted in the additional notes that they were released on the DuPage County Hardcore page:
https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/C ... .../899837
https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/A ... emo/899835

Is that the right way to proceed?
