Three mods previously decided that it was more ambient than metal.

I’ve read Systemia (Spain) was rejected for Prog Rock, really do you think this is not metal?

Nah, this was discussed by multiple mods and it is definitely more djent/prog rock than metal. Hell, most songs don't even have any metal riffing.

Well considering the song you linked was made before the blacklisting...we really have no opinion on that. I'm whitelisting your band so it can be re-evalued and doesn't miss the forums since it has been a while and prog stuff needs more mod input. Just make sure to link everything. Sounds sort of djenty though, don't get your hopes up.

Hi!

I was browsing some of the bands I added over the years and noticed the rejection of "Krysthla" from 2016.
They released a 'new' album in 2017.
While not my favourite style of music either, but it's modern thrash/melodic death/groove with some industrial, core and djent elements I reckon. Similar to bands like Eminence (Brazil) and/or newer Noctiferia (Slovenia). Kinda on a fine line here, so I understand a rejection...

Here's a clip:

My band "Unguilty" was rejected because it was considered "more ambient than metal riffs". But, actually, after showing my music to many people, everyone agrees it's metal, atmospheric. I believe that whoever heard and rejected it, has heard only small passages that sounded more "ambient." I would like a review of this case, if it's possible.

Hello,

Had a new band named We Are Beasts rejected, though every band it correlates to in influence are on MA- All Shall Perish, As Blood Runs Black, The Black Dahlia Murder, Darkest Hour, and At the Gates are all on here which is why i'm confused the band was rejected as it's the same vein of Melodic Death Metal and Metalcore that have been approved and not even limited to these bands.

So, just listened to He Whose Ox is Gored's "The Camel, the Lion, the Child" album, and it sounds like a mix of progressive, sludge, and post-metal to me. I see they've been blacklisted, but I don't see that they've been discussed here in the forums. What non-metal genre would you guys consider this?

Could the spanish band El altar DelHolocausto be Whitelisted based on their new album Ité? The band was apparently blacklisted based on their debut ep, which wasmore post- rock. while the new album is post-metal with aggressive riffing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3l4MXVIvVQ

Have a weird question here. I submitted a band called Corpse of Norma a while ago because they were part of an upcoming split with Trituration from Paraguay. I looked today and I noticed that my submission is not present anymore and one from 0th is here.

https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Co ... 3540450991

Did I miss something here? I just want to clarify what happened, since I was out all of yesterday.

0ths submission was accepted on March 2nd, yours on March 9th. After we noticed both bands are the same, yours got deleted because 0th's is the older one

Hi there, I'm writing here to ask if you guys can give my band BLOODY HOGS another chance.
https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/BL ... 3540448357
We were rejected a couple of months ago for the following reason:
Not a metal band; does not belong on Encyclopaedia Metallum. Please read (or re-read) our rules next time to see what qualifies as metal.

Punk with a heavy guitar sound, not metal."

We surely are a punk band as much as a metal band . But I think we have songs that are more metal than punk (I mean old school metal). Please check this two songs, for example, and let me know if I can try resubmit.
https://bloodyhogs.bandcamp.com/track/undeads-revenge-3
https://bloodyhogs.bandcamp.com/track/seven-doors-hotel
In case of confirmation I have provided evidence of a released album yet, but I can resend you a pic of the CDs if you need. Thanx

Because we are also just a bunch of people with our own definition of metal. Ours are the riffs, yours might be fuzzy guitars and a dark mood in general. That song sure has fuzzy guitars, but they don't build riffs, they just "wander" atmospherically for the most part. There is black metal (by our definition), but it's just not the most dominant aspect of the release. Different opinions.

As for core bands, pretty much all of them are borderline by nature since the genres themselves are based in Metal and Hardcore/punk, sometimes more on the metal side, sometimes more on the core side. This is a bit more on the core side of thigs while I can't deny the presence of metal riffing. As I said, borderline genres.

hrm, still borderline, but it feels a little more punk based. I'll leave it where it is, if some other mod wants to check them, feel free to do so.

Feels like Post Rock/Post-Hardcore to me. idk, has some riffs, though.

Mix of some sort of Doom Metal and Post-Rock...and ambient. Isn't quite there yet imho.

Might be, but we require a full release that's pre-dominantly metal, not 2 songs out of 8.

PaganiusI-

Thanks for the reply. There is certainly some fusion elements in the Death/ melodic metal and metalcore genre, but the We Are Beasts' stance is not very much in the hardcore (and definitely not punk, none of us listen to punk unless it's a Black Metal centric style) view of it, our influences and sound style are directly tied to the aforementioned bands and others in the side of the genre that are warranted and present within MA and other segues with a more death and thrash influence albeit with some breakdowns that are yet more to the deathy side of riffage as accentuated by the lead guitar, and again in direct lineage to other bands that have relative and relevant presence.
We would like to see it reconsidered for these reasons, we understand there is some subjectivity and opinion on the genre but see it as a correlating Metal band that fits for a Metal archive in the objective aspect.

Danke und Prost

My submission for Estonian black metal band Värdjas was blacklisted because it's "not metal".

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHPp0FxGjjs - Live video of the band.

https://youtu.be/QxEIcV0L1h8 - Track from the demo which I have added as their sole official release, by the guidelines this release is valid to solicit the adding of the band into the Metal Archives.
https://youtu.be/I2BW3rqHNAE - Track from the demo
https://youtu.be/gDtCoLPLjLY - Track from the demo

In my opinion, these links are concrete proof that this IS black metal.

Change it to Symphonic Black Metal, they sound like exactly Dimmu Borgir and mid stuff Cradle of Filth:
1st EP: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... OAn3C8KFZG
1st album: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... C8jH8abz9A
Last single: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ypP4iehtS8

Change it to Melodic Black Metal, for obviously Covenant worship and early stuff Dissection worship too:

I listened to it, more chugging/bouncy stuff than actual riffs.

PaganiusI-

Thanks for the feedback and listening to it-- what's the consensus? It's influenced directly from albums like As Blood Runs Black's "Allegience", All Shall Perish's "The Price of Existence", TBDM's "Unhallowed", and Darkest Hour's "Undoing Ruin" and resonates the "bouncy" structures found on those releases as well as you heard.
I really appreciate taking the time to listen and have the discussion, always enjoy hearing others' perspectives in a constructive facet.

Prost

They're a Touhou arrangement band. So basically they are a cover band of songs that came from the Touhou series.

Tried to submit a band, Depulsed.
https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/De ... 3540451608

Was rejected, asking me to provide a proof of physical release.
I resubmitted it with a report that includes the proof of physical release.
(https://nserecords.bigcartel.com/product/depulsed-demo)

Got rejected again, same reason. Do you guys check the report before rejecting a band ?
Thanks.

Hi there folks, I didn't find a thread about this band, so I wonder why Necrosodomistical Slaughter is blacklisted, what do you think? Too borderline, riffless? Give it a shot :)

https://necrosodomisticalslaughter.band ... -stupidity

https://thehillsaredead.bandcamp.com/al ... s-split-ep

(the other release VHS Terror is not worth a shot to be evaluated)

PD: Subhuman Hordes seems to be most punky riffless grindnoise, isn't it?

Is this the Elegy from the United States that’s been blacklisted, or the punky one?

The punky one is blacklisted, but you've actually confused the band's name with the album's title, mate. It's already on MA.

"Sorry Hanse Baenger, Encyclopaedia Metallum was forced to reject your submission for the band Straitjacket (Germany), for the following reason:
Needs proof for the releases to exist. Only found a digital single on amazon."

Moin,

here is proof of the existence of the debut.

Today my submission of Immense Suffering was rejected for proof of an official release, but there are links in the entry for the album’s Spotify, iTunes and Deezer. Aren’t those valid platforms for a full-length release?

Hello guys!
I would like to ad the new band I play in, "Hardcore Anal Hydrogen", but the band is blacklisted.

Why isn't Europe here? The first two albums are really NWOBHMy (and yes, i looked up the search results and the last ones were from 2015)-

We recently re-evaluated Force (or at least I listened to them iirc) (the pre-Europe band) and we (I?) think they already are too borderline to be acceptable. During that time we (I?) also listened to the first Europe albums (simply because most Force songs ended up on those records anyway).
Also I get bringing up bands that have released something new at some point, but bringing up old ass bands with releases that have already been judged years ago (as you stated)...where's the point in that?

[Edit: ah yeah, I came across the band during my Potential Band/Research facelift or shortly after that as that Witcher post that is quoted under Related comments dates to "14 Oct 2018"
