Best regards. The band was blacklisted in 2017 for being atmospheric post rock based on their first album, which can't be more accurate. However, on their newest and second album released today the style has been changed to post metal or atmospheric post metal to be more accurate. Except for the first song, because the first song is a strange drone.

Newest and second album:

This whole thing is ridiculous! So MA knows better than we our selves what music we play?
What exactly makes us not a metal band? Have you fucking bothered to listen to our music for more than a second?? And yet we are heavier than a lot of classic metal bands and you list plenty of bands that have NEVER been metal, such as Wardruna!! Really??

You can call your music whatever you want, everyone has his own definition of what metal is. We don't claim to have the only answer, but we have one that worked very well for us over the past 16 years and that's based on "metal riffing".
Also, in case you didn't notice, we actually whitelisted the band, meaning they get another chance to be accepted and is already in the queue waiting for mods to give their opinion.
As for Wardruna, you should read our rules:
Rules wrote:
Additionally, there will be some non-metal bands featured on the site that we feel are still part of the metal scene despite not being metal themselves (usually darkwave, ambient, neo-classical and/or folk bands, examples being Mortiis, Elend, Autumn Tears, Stille Volk, etc). These bands are selected by the moderators in an admittedly arbitrary fashion, and their submission by normal users is discouraged. Please bear with us on this.
