Assiduous Assault was blacklisted and I would like to know why, please.

Just as the rejection message you received already told you, for not being a metal band.
In detail: non-metallic grind.

If you want to genre mince, technically Assiduous Assault are Technical Death Grind because of the sweep picking and riffing.

I have a similar artist Orphic Eye that was accepted so I am confused as to where the line between grind and metal gets drawn.

There are also dozens of bands listed here as "grindcore" so I figured this genre was acceptable.

Grindcore is acceptable so long as it's based in metal. Punk-based grind is not acceptable. For bands that blend punk-based grind with metallic grind (as many, many bands do of course, that's the nature of the genre) it's acceptable as long as the metal is predominant over the punk-influences.
