Would like to know if this band could be evaluated based on their later output. It's melodic power/heavy metal with poppy elements, in the vein of Metalite and such.

I don't know how old the blacklist is and on which album it is based, since there's no information on it on the forum. I'll also leave their other album from 2020, "The cost of greatness":

They got blacklisted based on the ironically titled "The Cost of Greatness" for being non-metal/pop. Now they released a new album with another super ironic title "Pop Metal". Pretty much what you'd expect of that, awful music and very little metal riffing. Basically what I told you already, if it sounds like Amaranthe or Epsilon-era Blood Stain Child forget it. And this sounds precisely like that to the point that it gives those bands a run for their money. If their output going forward doesn't happen to sound significantly more metal than what they have, don't bother bringing them up again.
