I submitted funeral doom metal band Below The Frostline and it was rejected for some reason.

https://belowthefrostline.bandcamp.com/

Funeral doom riffs are present throughout the release.

I think this one is safe to resubmit but I want to be 100% sure it isn't on a blacklist or something.

gotta say i agree with it being rejected. about half, if not more, of all the long songs is riffless ambiance and what have you

A little more than half of the total run-time has riffs, and those form the core of this band's sound. Lots of funeral doom bands have a large portion of ambient in the mix, especially when it is beginning or ending an album (on this one the last 7 minutes is ambient), I feel that a threshold of 50% should be enough.

Granted, that doesn't apply to other 'borderline' genres, but with funeral doom I think such a low threshold is acceptable.

Nevertheless, this band will get the green checkmark with their next release, if not this one.

Sounds like you want your tag back...

:oh shit:

No. Nope. No I don't. I like my current tag. I'm content to wait for this band's next release and see what it is like then.
