The band got blacklisted for being more -core than metal. From what I see, there's still only one album on Bandcamp which got the band blacklisted https://alchemia.bandcamp.com/releases. Until there is a new album to consider, the band will stay blacklisted. Sorry.

Hello brother, sorry but we are a mix of death metal, black metal and symphonic metal. Our main influences are Judas Priest, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, King Diamond and Rob Zombie.

On that link you can check our song inception:

And here there's an independent press review:
https://www.ever-metal.com/2021/07/20/a ... inception/

For our band is really important to be part of this website. We've just launched last April our album in Japan via WormholeDeath Records and last year in Europe, on the end of the year we will be touring in Europe and the metal archives is a big reference. Please reconsider this blacklist.

Thank you

I understand that you want to have your band's discography archived so people can have an easier access to the information and I respect that. But we are not really a promotional website. We archive bands that have at least one predominantly metal album by our standards and our main criteria for acceptability are the metal riffs. In your band's case, it was concluded that the music isn't really based on metal riffing. There are some riffs there but they are not the main focus of the release. I'm really sorry but based on this album the decision is pretty much final. However, you are more than welcome to bring up the band again when there is a new album to consider.
