This band was rejected under the reason that they are not a metal band. I read the rules about what counts as metal and what doesn't before adding them and I think they should qualify. They only have one album out so far but it has strong Meshuggah influences, harsh vocals, and progressive metal riffing. I can only imagine that they were rejected because they have too much jazz and djent influences and not enough traditional metal but I was not given any details as to why they were rejected. If this is the case I can accept it though I do not support that decision. I think they qualify for the site and ask that you reconsider.

Bandcamp link for sampling (Signal-to-Noise and Rebiogenesis especially underline my points):

yeah, this is not the kind of music this site considers to be metal, as you yourself pointed out, this is mostly djent/jazz fusion. meshuggah is only here because at one point they were a thrash band or something, not for pioneering djent. blacklist stays.

Thanks for confirming! I won't say I don't think it's a shame but I accept your decision.
