Hey I'd like to know why Herod from Switzerland was blacklisted? As far as I can tell their latest record sounds like proper sludge metal: https://herod.bandcamp.com/album/sombre-dessein.

The blacklisting is from 2014 and says post-hardcore. Sounds like that still holds, with some djent thrown into the mix as well.

Why is the band Neurocysticercosis blacklisted? They're the changed name of Dehumanize (from Louisville, Kentucky), and they haven't released any material yet.

They're brutal death metal, also.

If they haven't released anything yet.. why do you wanna know?:P
They are blacklisted for being (unmetallic) goregrind since 2015.

I want to know so that I can make a draft for them.

Thanks for the info - it must be a different band, as this one is a brand-new project.

Dear Metal Archives Team

At first, thank you for hosting this amazing page and supporting Metal!

I am a member of the Band Endark The Brightness and I tried to add the band 2 years ago..but for some reasons (no guitar?) we have been rejected. We worked and finished our second album 'Cycle' that was released on the 16th February 2019, yesterday:). We now have guitars and the whole music got more brutal but still being atmospheric and epic.

I wanted to submit our band but I got a message that we have been blacklisted (maybe the status when you got rejected in the first place) - Is there a possibility to resubmit - because of the change in style (if you want we could only mention the album 'Cycle' if 'Beheaded Society' was not metal enough)?

We recently released our lyric video for the song 'Forsaking' of the album 'Cycle'. If you need the other songs from the album 'Cycle' to judge whether it classifies as 'Metal' I could send you the .mp3 files.

Thank you for considering us! Keep up the great work! Much appreciated:)

Brutal regards from Basel, Switzerland!

Once there is a valid release, post proof here and we'll temporarily whitelist it. Provided it is indeed a different band.

The entire album would be ideal. Please send to the email address found in my profile (see below). Thanks.

Hello Metal Archives team, thanks a lot for your hard work, this site is wonderful.

I am writing about the avant-garde band Waxwolf that has been recently submitted and rejected for being more jazz than metal.
I want to explain my reason for why i think there should be a reconsideration:

1: the project features indeed many different genres but the matrice for each song can (in my opinion) be considered metal (i.e. distorted guitars, drums, bass, harsh and clean vocals). yes the jazz component is very strong but my main influences are bands like "thank you scientist" and "cynic" that also make a heavy use of brass and reeds and incorporate fusion elements to enrich the armonic scape.
*(this is not an argument "this band=that band", sorry if I used other bands with similar traits to try to explain why the line is very blurred expecially in avant-garde)

2: I am about to release a new single/extract from my next album that will be more canonically progressive death (as soon as the material goes live on spoitify i will write to the facebook page or to an admin to make the material be heard, so it is ok to wait untill then for the review)

3: take for example songs like "As black as a diamond" and "the dream king" wich are undoubtedly progressive death metal, or "clinamen" wich has a more progressive metal vibe, this leaves the last three songs:
I agree that "Metempsicosi" is 90% jazz with just a metal instert at the end, and that "A heart of wolf" is progressive rock with a metal bridge.
It's more complicated for a song like "What was left behind" to be classified, because even if it has an acoustic intro a la opeth, then progresses in a more metal chorus that then gives space to various kinds of traditional and electronic music inserts, but still i think that the core of the song is metal, because the repeated chorus features elements that can be found greatly in the progressive or avant garde death metal.

4: I am Proud to be part of the metal community since 2009, and I always considered myself to be a metalhead, and so this is a more emotional kind of appeal: I would love to have this project recognized by the metal community just for the fact that this is a part of my ideals as a musicians. (for example i never considered myself a jazz musician, but always a metal one).
I know this is not a very solid argument but I wanted to write it anyway \m/

Thanks for your time and effort.

If this changes anything, great! If not, oh well :-P

Feel free to post the new album here so we can re-evaluate, but for now the blacklist stays.

Blacklisted for being Hardcore. A 2-song promo won't make a difference. Wait for more ;)

Just found out about 313 (USA, PA, Pittsburgh) being blacklisted.

Dembo wrote:
If the blacklisted Three Thirteen is the 80's one from Pittsburgh, the blacklisted message should show up also when typing in 313, since they go by that name as well. I assume they were deemed hard rock to a higher degree than metal?

It doesn't quite work like that. Only "Three Thirteen" is blacklisted, "313" is not. I'm not sure if that's what you're getting at, but variations like that aren't covered automatically; a mod has to manually add it. Anyway, as you assumed: "hard rock", November 2013

Finally they got a physical/digital release out, a compilation of their 1985/87 recordings on Tribunal records: https://tribunalrecords.bandcamp.com/al ... e-thirteen
Just went through all 19 songs and all I hear is 80s Power/Speed Metal - I didn´t find a single Hard Rock song (not even 1 out of 19!), also the ballad (#19) is typical 80s Metal…

How about rethinking the blacklisting with this 2019 release finally showing up?

---- (Edit, 19-Feb-2019) ----
Just added 313, the Power/Speed band from PA.
May someone else add the Three Thirteen (Thrash band) with the Dawn of the Shred album (2016)…
Thanks Az for removing this blacklisting!

I kinda think a re-review might be in order. I was listening to it yesterday and gotta say the riffs seem quite metal to me. Also Tim Aymar is automatically metal so yeah (yeah I know that's not how things work, but just sayin :P )

Good call and I will specifically point out their 2016 album "Dawn Of The Shred", which seems to be definitely heavier than their older material:
https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/threethirteen16
https://open.spotify.com/album/4QY9beYdQl2QTehnnCYtwt
https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/dawn- ... 1175715089
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_H6GfrTjBk

RRegarding the post about the band 313 above, unfortunately tthese two posts by Boblovesmusic and then me got overlooked, so here are they again...

Looks like there's two different bands here? Both are metal, so I've removed the blacklist entry.

No, it has bm vocals at times and even some blast beats, maybe, but no riffs. Just weird, rocky guitar noodling/wandering

Hello, I would like to raise an objection that the "Fólkvangr" band from Iceland was placed on the blacklist. The cause is that "it was not metal." Currently I again sent a request to add it, but it seems that since it was previously blacklisted, this new request was also rejected. The last time I had used this website was a year ago so I did not really know how it worked, I would like to be able (if possible) to remove the band Fólkvangr from the blacklist in order to send the last request, which was rejected. The band is metal, with folk influences, the content can be found on Spotify and other streaming platforms; in the last application, provide all the required information.

I see that the Swedish Black Earth is blacklisted; I can understand why, given the unusual situation, but with two releases to their name (a live album from 2017 and an upcoming compilation), both of which contain brand-new studio material, I think an appeal is justified.

Label page with information on the two releases (in Japanese; band members, album and track titles in English): http://www.trooper.co.jp/artist_blackearth.html
Brief interview about the new studio recordings: http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/origin ... th-banner/

"Burn on the Flame" and "Life Infernal" from Path of the Immortal (the compilation) are explicitly listed as new tracks, and "Darkness Has Returned" from the live album sure sounds like a new studio recording as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJhlanI7oTs

Could the Italian band Varego be whitelisted based on their new, 2019 album? It sounds like heavy/doom metal to me, similar to early Death SS or the more metal albums by Paul Chain:

They blacklisted because they are essentially an early Arch Enemy cover band. Three songs of OG material isn't gonna cut it. We're going to need an album that is predominately new material.

Stuff like this happens, sorry about that. It is usually because earlier submissions are usually grabbed but we try to get the most comprehensive data but sometimes a later submission isn't really looked at unless the different in info/lack of info in the former is obviously clear. We don't replace entries of already submitted bands just due to how counter-intuitive it would be. If there is anything missing or out of date, please send a report about it.

When the band was initially submitted, the mods had some back and forth and we felt that a mix of the music sounding too chuggy/-core and mixed production of what we have heard (circa October 2018). The second submission was rejected because blacklist evasion is a bannable offence and goes against our rules (which from the looks of it, you have talked to the admins/other mods about that). Since there is a new album we'll (read: I'll) check it out in a bit.

Gotcha. It does seem odd to exclude those two albums from the Archives, though, especially given that the compilation is essentially an Arch Enemy release. But given that it's a separate band and not a name change and, as you say, there's only a limited amount of distinguishing material, I can see how it slips through the cracks.

I know this is terribly old, and I posted in here before about it, but i wanted to raise it again because I didnt really get what I wanted last time (which was a revaluation), can someone please reevaluate Signal the Firing Squad based on their 2010 album Earth Harvest? Being a heavy editor and oraganizer of the deathcore bands on the archives it really is confusing why this band isn't on here from that album. It's almost entirely a technical brutal death album just with breakdowns and it easily fits in with the type of deathcore that gets accepted on MA.

Before I shut up for good about the band, I just want to urge the mods (preferably Midnight Rider and Azmodes in particular since both of you are great at this sort of stuff) to listen to it. If you still don't agree, I'll fuck off about it forever.
Just wanted to ask one last time
Here is the album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66JKrp8CxLA

It's almost entirely a technical brutal death album just with breakdowns and it easily fits in with the type of deathcore that gets accepted on MA.

Before I shut up for good about the band, I just want to urge the mods (preferably Midnight Rider and Azmodes in particular since both of you are great at this sort of stuff) to listen to it. If you still don't agree, I'll fuck off about it forever.

Alright, although I still don't exactly see how or why that is.
I can fully understand why their second album (Abnegate) isn't passable, but I'll never really get why the first album isn't "predominantly metal", but somehow virtually identical albums by Thy Art Is Murder or The Red Shore are somehow OK.
Figure it's no longer worth bringing this up despite that it'll never really make total sense, but I thought it was worth it to try one last time.

To me it sounds pretty similar to a more technical version of early Suicide Silence, or the Infinite Death EP by Thy Art Is Murder (neither of which are acceptable) - borderline, with parts that are tech-death or similar-sounding, but overall there’s enough breakdowns and chugs to leave me leaning no. It’s intense music for sure but I don’t think the guitar riffs are consistently close enough to what we call metal - and for the record IMO this sounds pretty distinct from The Adversary, the only reason TAIM is on the website.

To me, that band sounds like a mix of 60 or 70% core and 38% tech death. Obviously more predominantly core riffages than metal.

Already totally aware that that album is what got TAIM on the website (and yeah, that record that was the album I had in mind comparing to Earth Harvest).
Im unsure if any of Thy Art's newer/recent albums would have gotten them on the website if The Adversary wasn't released, never really even listened myself to confirm or find out because i find Thy Art Is Murder to be the most ridiculously boring and overrated band ever. The Adversary was the only album I ever bothered caring about (for deathcore that thing is a masterpiece).
