Hi recently registered here and try to add my band Prophets Of Yahweh (India) a progressive death metal band , but found that it was blacklisted for some reason. I am requesting you to check on my band page links that i am sharing here, please help us add the band name.
We have released our full length album on 19.2.19 on bandcamp.

I request you to please remove the ban so that i can add my band to the metal archives ..
Thanks and regards

Blacklisted based on that exact material for being too influenced by -core. It was evaluated thoroughly by several mods, so blacklisting stays for now. You are free to bring your band up again if you release more material in the future.

Wow, thats a new one.. As we never knew that it was core influenced. We have been reviewed by many blogs and none of them said its core, we strongly recommend you to give the album a spin on the above bandcamp link ... There is no clean singing as core elements or any breakdowns like the core...
We got 9/10 from Metal Temple

Everyone one of these review backs up that this band is progressive death metal, if you guys are simply judging the name of the band and think its a christian band, then we are really disappointed in the racial decision you guys decided to blacklist a metal band. Its not a religious band, but have spiritual theme in it. There is a list of core based band in your archives which you guys approved and you guys are blacklisting a death/groove/thrash band without listening to the music is pure sad. Anyways we dont really need to prove our metal heaviness just to be get our list here since the band was formed back in 2012 and this is just pure disrespect as a metal community.
We just tried when one of the review were mentioning about why our band name was not in this list in the first place.(have a read)

Hope you guys have great time trying to control the scene by giving certain bands partial discrimination. This is just wrong man.
Peace nd love to you guys.

Regards,
Prophets of Yahweh

Well not every site defines metal the way we do (by the riffing).
In your case several mods agreed that while your band has a significant amount of straight-up Death Metal based riffs, there's also a significant number of modern/core-ish riffs that you probably define as Groove Metal while we think that's it's more based on the -Core side of things.
At this point, your band is pretty much on the borderline of acceptance but slighly on the wrong side, so we decided that it's best to wait for another release. Once that is out you're free to bring your band up again.

Sure, if that's what you guys think . No worries we were just wondering why the name was not there. As a metal artist who only believed in unique metal music this is one upsetting message just to know that its not metal enough. Whoever made this equation will probably wants all the metal band to sound same, just like his personal taste. We really thought this site was a real encyclopedia for metal bands across the globe, but its not.. This is definitely not an encyclopedia of metal band

If you were relying that much on MA for promoting your band (not our mission or goal whatsoever), maybe write an unambiguously metal album next time.

See? That's the problem here. We're a reference database; an encyclopaedic effort. Not a publicity platform. The key for not being "invisible" is social media, not us, evil, close-minded Metal dinosaurs.

It looks like your band is managing to get plenty of good press and reviews despite not being listed on the Metal Archives. Even if you see MA as a chance to promote your band, it seems you've already outgrown it.

Yea sure, whatever guys.. We already told you, the reason why 200 other non existing Indian bands are still in your archive which include bands more core influenced is still here and we never knew even this database existed until some reviewer from U.S.A mentioned it in his blog why our band was not listed since it is definitely not core in any part of this album watsoever.

Its okay guys we wrote a full length album, we survived 7 years. We never relied on MA till date, but maybe some metalheads do search bands in country based and they dint find us here, so that makes MA a non accurate or reliable or unupdated database. We were just trying to help u guys with authentic metal band entry. But seems like people here are too offended by our band name. U guys chose this to make active band invisible because of watever for 7 years period.

This is not a criterion they use, I assure you.
