Apple Music: https://music.apple.com/us/artist/tanvald/1610323710
Amazon Music: https://music.amazon.com/artists/B09SLT6VC7/tanvald

Cheers

That's only one song digital single. That won't make the cut as per this update https://www.metal-archives.com/news/view/id/279. Wait until they have either more digital releases or a physical release of the existing one.

Hi,

Tanvald's debut EP just released and I hope the band is now eligible to be added to the site:

Bandcamp: https://tanvald.bandcamp.com/
Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/6AxzlG9R ... 1dqrLlZ_zw
Itunes: https://music.apple.com/us/album/zrod-ep/1622428921

Cheers

I resubmitted and just got rejected because:

"The material released so far is borderline in terms of being metal."

WTF how is this borderline metal:

Someone even listed the band on Metal Kingdom:
https://www.metalkingdom.net/album/tanvald-zrod-154862

One song got listed in Black Metal 2022:
https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7x2qB ... 2b29674fc4

Metalperver wrote about it:

So yes, I can not understand this decision.

As they did Linkin Park too and we don't have Linkin Park on this site. So completely irrelevant as well as the other two links below it.

We judge the music based on riffs. And in that regard, this is far from being conclusive in any way. The riffs are there to an extent but there's also plenty of ambient/non-metal stuff there too. Fairly inconsistent stuff which even seems to lean a bit more on the ambient side. Sorry.

Alright sure thing and stuff like Lustre is listed on the side without problem. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm not that well acquainted with Lustre's discography but for a band to be acceptable on this site all it takes is at least one predominantly metal album, so yeah.
