Was wondering why the digital release was not considered valid. Official sanctioned download of the promo from the label's blogspot, album artwork, etc.

Thanks, guys.

(By the way, I am aware the EP available on their soundcloud and the official promo EP from Xtrike Records are different releases, looking at my submission, I can see that I didn't quite make that clear.)

The download itself was fine, but with digital-only acceptance we judge albums with higher scrutiny, focusing on their presentation (how professional it is) and production (whether its quality is too rehearsal/makeshift). We were a bit concerned with that here, especially with regards to the second track which seemed very poorly put together. On second look, I'll go ahead and restore it as it arguably could be passable as-is based on stylistic choices here. But be aware that bands doing weird, wonky shit can sometimes raise red flags for us.

I totally understand that viewpoint. Thanks for the info and the restoration.

Much appreciated, mate.
