Was rejected being "not a metal band". However, it's 100% black metal.
This is Coprsetalk's Bandcamp: https://corpsetalk.bandcamp.com/
And some tracks from the last album:
https://corpsetalk.bandcamp.com/track/sundown
https://corpsetalk.bandcamp.com/track/t ... rse-of-men

Not metal? :) Please approve the band.

The dominant aspect here is the ambient. There are guitars in the back, sure, but they just follow the synthesizer adding some fuzz/harsh bits to the ambient parts instead of providing actual riffs.
One could probably call it "guitar ambient" or something along that line, but metal isn't the dominating aspect for sure.
That's why it got rejected.

According to the band, it's not ambient at all, and there're actual riffs in every track.
Here're two examples from the first album:
https://corpsetalk.bandcamp.com/track/u ... extinction
https://corpsetalk.bandcamp.com/track/e ... llow-souls
It doesn't sound ambient at all.

We don't listen to bands when it comes to genres.
And Ambient is the dominant part in the band's music.
Hence the blacklist will stay a new release comes out that is more metal than what was released up to this point.

Nevertheless, you have a page for Vinterriket, which is ambient with fewer metal releases. Strange rules, actually.
P.S. There're no drums in ambient, while Corpsetalk do have drums. And the song structures are absolutely metal.
And another example: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Vi ... 3540468038 It's not really metal as well. But it was approved. Like many dungeon synth projects here. Double standards?

All it takes for a band to get accepted is one metal release.

And drums don't matter, vocals don't matter, riffs do.
Vingþórr has riffs and so do the metal releases of Vinterriket.

Oh well, and you don't hear the riffs in Corpsetalk's music? O'RLY? Maybe I should send you the tabs?

You've been given the decision. Now I suggest you stop being cheeky and move on already.

Still pretty dominant on the ambient. Might be fine though.
Whitelisted for a closer look.

Sounds like Ambient with drums.
Still not metal. Some MIDI guitars or something, but far from riff-based.

50% metal, 50% ambient/noise + one cover track.
No.
