Hello.
I'd like to make an appeal for a band I've submitted and that was rejected earlier today. It is the case of the Swedish band Mister Misery, which were rejected because "they are not a metal band".
Well, agree to disagree, but I do fail to see (or hear) how is their album "Unalive" not metal. I mean, their songs sound consistently riffy, even the more melodic ones, with some classic metalcore/ heavy metal discernible type of riffing. They might look gimmicky and BVB-esque, for sure, but I guess that wouldn't assure the band's rejection.
Hereupon, I think that the band deserves a revaluation. You can listen to their music on the link below:

Thanks in advance.

The band was checked by 3 mods already. 1 of them thought they might be fine or at least really borderline, but two more mods thought it was too -core/rock to be acceptable.
Personally, I agree with the two "no"s, this is poppy -core with some metallic riffs.
Sorry, blacklist stays.

Sure, understandable, thanks for your time!
