why "Icon and The Black Roses" named band black listed ? they are pretty much gothic metal.

Blacklisted for sounding like HIM.

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 :)

(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?

I couldn’t tell if this inquiry had been replied to or not. In the event it got lost in the shuffle, I also hear doom in this band.

I think this got lost in the shuffle again or I missed the response (my apologies if I did!)


Any thoughts on this one?

Not asking why 5FDP is not listed (well, maybe I am), just want to get a better understanding of the genre and its cousins.

Would it be accurate to call 5FDP hard-rock + grunge or is it just hard rock? Somebody put both Foreigner and Boston in the same group, which is an insult to Foreigner and anybody else "Hard Rock", but you know... I have seen a few threads complaining how the mods seem to classify music differently from everybody else. I have no opinion on the matter, really, but just want to be clear on why 5FDP isn't metal. Besides "not being metal enough", I mean.

You're tackling two questions there, but I will answer in brief.

The first is questioning why we classify music differently from everybody else. We do and we don't. We do have our own definition of what is and isn't metal, as you would expect everyone out there does. Some people define metal on the riffs (as we do), or on how 'heavy' the music is, or even on other elements like image, scene or what bands they've played with. We readily accept that we have a point of view different from others, and we're OK with that. It turns out most of our visitors are fine with that, too. MA is like a buddy you talk music with, where you might agree 90% of the time but you also might fiercely disagree for the remaining 10%. Sometimes we see eye-to-eye while at other times we do not, but we must have some value because people seem to think our point of view is valuable (otherwise they would not use us).

The second question is more specific to Five Finger Death Punch. Without going into excessive detail, the band probably belongs to that nebulous genre of "nu-metal" or "modern metal" which is itself a misnomer in our opinion. If you were to measure "nu-metal" or "modern metal" as metal based on having metal riffs as its base then bands of those styles clearly lack that. A band like that is a mix of styles of alternative/hard rock, hardcore, rap, and even some metal, yet ultimately lacks a predominance in any one factor especially in having a predominantly metal album. And since we use that as a measure for a band's acceptance into MA, then a band like Five Finger Death Punch ultimately ends up being unacceptable based on our standards for what is and isn't metal, and thus fails to meet the thresholds we've set for acceptability.

This post is relevant to the rejection of Stereo Animal from the database, on the grounds of being "noise rock".

If you had listened to both their albums, you would see that the band is 99% groove/tech metal, while the tag you objected to, is merely an inclusion to their overall style, mentioned only in their Bandcamp page.

The band is akin to Pantera, Meshuggah, Lamb of God, Grip Inc. etc., those bands have noise elements too, yet I don't see them being rejected from MA.

Please reconsider.

I did listen to both releases, but thanks for assuming I just rejected it based on a tag on their Bandcamp. Relistening to it now, I stand by the rejection. A good deal of metal elements, but to my ears the focus is on industrial/noise rock.

Niko del Hierro (bass player and former of Hades) 2015 review:
I read that the first long-playing album you recorded was with a band called Hades, the album Entre el fuego y la cruz, but it was never released. Why would this be? Is it not possible to recover it and sell it as a souvenir?
Yes, you are very well informed, there are really very few copies, it was edited but it did not go on sale, the company that took it out made 500 copies and then it closed, I did not know anything about it again. We even recorded it twice with two different singers in two different studios; He was funny, he had sugarcane issues back then. I think there's a friend who has a record company and I know he's going to shortly release an edition on CD.http://la-sangre-de-metal.blogspot.com/ ... atoga.html
-----
Niko del Hierro (bass player and former of Hades) biography:
Later we made a group called Hades, with which we came to record an LP "Between the fire and the cross" that never went on sale, but which I keep a copy. Paco, Gerardo, Edu. It was a weird story because we recorded the first record and it was published, they even advertised in the magazines but never went on sale. I have a good memory, because I appeared for the first time in the magazines and they made us the first interview with this record.

Detailed info about the two pressings:
Recorded at Trak studios in 1985.Francisco Medina-Drums,Gerardo Lopez-Guitars,Niko del Hierro-Bass,Eduardo-Voice(the songs that can be listened in youtube comes from this first recording,taken from a home demo tape).As the singer went to the army,the company didn´t want to release it without singer,and all test pressings were discarded,except this promo one(MASA white label),only one in the world.A few months later it was recorded again at micro studios and vinyls also were produced by MASA (black and pink label),500 vinyls were pressed with another singer called Adolfo,but finally it wasn´t released because of a worst quality recording(recorded at micro studio) despite Acuario records tried to make it at the end.Most of all those vinyls were discarded and no more than ten copies were saved for the members of the band from this second recording.Two covers were made.Vinyls from the second recording were put in the original cover,but as the first singer appeared in the front,new ones were pressed by acuario with the right photo of the second singer.

Hades unofficial BIO:
Madrilenian hard rock band formed in Carabanchel towards 1985 by Gerardo (vocals and guitar), Paco García (guitar), Niko del Hierro (bass) and Paquillo Medina (drums).
Niko was the founder of Saratoga and went through such important groups as Ñú, King Kong and Barón Rojo.
In that year, 1985 they recorded a single disc in Ep format with six tracks, entitled 'Between fire and the cross'. The themes were 'Between fire and the cross', 'Fantasy for the goblin', 'Hades', 'The magic of rock', 'The queen' and 'The way of the gods'.
The curiosity is that they never made official the appearance of the album, promoting it only through magazines and other specialized publications.
http://no80s-gruposnacionales.blogspot. ... hades.html
-----
YouTube video with a relevant comment:
THERE WAS MORE ELEMENTS IN THAT GROUP AS THE FIRST SINGER, EDU, IS WHO SAYS ON THIS DISC AND THAT THERE WAS A SECOND SINGER, JUAN GALICIA PHILL, WHO CLOSED THE FORMATION OF THE FOLLOWING WAY: GERARDO GARCIA (GUITARS), NIKO DEL HIERRO ( BASS), JUAN GALICIA (VOCALS), PACO MEDINA (DRUMS).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEHYplE4ETM

Album review:
Unfortunately this record is so rare (even big Spanish collectors don't own it) that almost nobody has listened to this masterpiece of metal music!! Hades MLP is as good as Exodo's "The new babylon" and you have to listen to bombastic anthems like "Entre el Fuego y la Cruz" & "Fantasνa para el Duende" in order to believe it.Ferocious guitars and amazing vocals are what the listener gets from first to last spin. The band (hailed from Madrid) participated quite a few times in the famous "Villa de Madrid Festival" and once it won the competition. Probably a handful of copies exist so you have to try hard in order to listen to this cornerstone of European heavy metal.

LOL you can't be serious. There are zero riffs here, it's just breakdown/chug after breakdown/chug. Not even close to metal.

Could Chaotic Resemblance be whitelisted on the basis of their 2018 album "Covenant"?
The album is much heavier than their past releases, with more consistent metal riffing. It is similar in style to Slave To The Grind by Skid row or to the more recent heavy metal albums by Styper like "No More Hell To Pay". http://www.christiandownloads.com.br/20 ... lance.html

A rejection doesn't automatically mean it was blacklisted. If you didn't activate email notifications, you can easily check the reason given via "My bands":
Quote:
I am sorry, but the album(s) you have asked us to judge have been deemed invalid. An album is valid if it is complete (a finished product), official (authorized by the band or its agent), and has been released and distributed to the public (either physically or through a band-sanctioned download or both). When it comes to distribution, we value the album's presentation and production, the scope of distribution, and the legitimacy of the distributor. Unfortunately, in this case, it's just too rough/rehearsal to qualify for digital only acceptance.

I have noticed , that Cock And Ball Torture were deleted yet again. Before their deletion, was the album "eEgoleech" taken into consideration? That album is imo mid-tempo , groovy death metal and not punkish geindcore The vocals are of the pornogrind/goregrind style, but the riffing iis not and the vocals should not determine the metalness of the release, isn't it so? So please, here is the full album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKiiIi1ihTM

This still mostly sounds like noisegrind with no audible riffs IMO. If all of their new material sounds like this, then no.

I'm pretty familiar with the band, and I was the one who brought them up years ago and led to the inquiry that got them deleted in the first place. I'm not convinced of the death metalness of Egoleech, but we're currently discussing it internally.

Greetings dear Encyclopaedia Team!

Just heard about your site a few weeks ago and wanted to submit my Band.
I got the notification that my Band is already Blacklisted. So it must be that someone already submitted the band. (maybe with false information?)

I would be very happy to hear the reason why we were blacklisted.

Band: Deadtime Stories
Location: Kufstein, Austria
Genre: Modern Melodic Deathmetal
Releases: EP 'Karma' 2017
Full Length Album coming 2018

Thanks for all Information beforehand!
Have a nice day,
Max

Blacklisted in mid 2017 for being predominantly -core. The date means that the EP you mention was the one evaluated. Post in here again once the foll length is out and available to the public. If it is decidedly, unambiguously Metal, that is.


Predominantly -core? Not sure if we´re talking about the very same release.
→ Deadtime Stories (Aut) - Karma [ep] (2016): Spotify, Deezer, BandCamp
For me this is clearly MeloDeath with grunts, clear & core vocals. - So the rejection is based on that vocal part only? Music won´t count anymore?
Even reviewers write there´s more MeloDM than Metalcore (called "modern" by the above bandmember…).

Don´t understand this blacklisting at all, I´m just curious if someone has the balls to revise the decision (after re-audtion)…

What a band member calls their own music is irrelevant to us. So are what reviews, bandcamp/YouTube tags etc etc say. The staff here listens to the music and makes a decision, simply as that.

Is this the band Hot Shot that's blacklisted? Side A is metal while side B is more on the hard rock side, but could go either way.

Wow, my hat's off to PaganiusI - didn´t expect this at all. - Shows a strong character to revise once made decisions, kudos.

Does that mean the need to re-add them as they seem to be added already but rejected back then?

Could Chaotic Resemblance be whitelisted on the basis of their 2018 album "Covenant"?
The album is much heavier than their past releases, with more consistent metal riffing. It is similar in style to Slave To The Grind by Skid row or to the more recent heavy metal albums by Stryper like "No More Hell To Pay". http://www.christiandownloads.com.br/20 ... lance.html


Since there was a long string of legthy posts, so I am reposting this question in hope it does not get lost and gest the attention

Why was Ashed from Canada blacklisted? it is pretty straightforward slam/brutal death metal so I do not see a problem. You can choose your own price for the music, all of it is purchasable via bandcamp.

Yes, can't restore the original submission.

Blacklisted for being "riffless slam".

their most recent release seems to have a few more riffs, but I will take another listen before I ask again.

their most recent promo seems to have a fair few riffs, along with their Deconsecrate EP.
