Normally probably not, but context matters, too.

Rekuiem doesn't appear to be a continuation of Requiem so much as a reactivation of the project two decades later, with several new members, too. I think in this case, given the context of the name change and the deliberate attempt by the band to differentiate the reactivated project from the original project with the name change, having separate entries is probably fine.

I have recently bought the Sick And Thirsty Cd by the German Sweet Pain and their music is not heavy metal imo, but pure hard rock influenced hugely by AC/DC. Here are two of their albums and some more samples to prove it:

Which album was Oxbow accepted off of?

Probably "An Evil Heat", that's why their are currently listed as "Stoner/Doom Metal, Avant-garde".

After taking a listening to the full discography I can safely conclude this was -effectively- experimental rock.
"An Evil Heat" (the album which Oxbow was accepted on) was determined to be non-metal by SotLB and me.

It was removed.-

I am a newbie to this site and metal in general, but I've been wondering about Tarja's page on the archives. Is her admission to metal-archives an exception of the same kind as Wardruna, side projects, etc.? I don't really hear much metal in her solo art, it's mostly rock + symphonic, pop and occasional metal elements. I'm not judging the quality of her stuff, in my opinion it's better than Nightwish's albums after her departure, but is it metal? Tarja's typical song sounds like "I walk alone", but a lot of songs don't have guitars at all. Is this considered metal enough for the archives? I mean, the riffs are definitely there, but most of them don't really sound like metal riffs, but simply rock/nu metal ones.

https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Seris/3540325713
This band is listed as "Technical Gothic Metal/Rock" but to me it sounds more like math rock/mathcore with female vocals. Should it really be here?
All of their songs can be listened to here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCe5ta7 ... _polymer=1

Will be addressed by SotLB and me shortly.

Ok, it's quite obvious it isn't metal. Just an AC/DC clone (quite similar to Rhinobucket).

Hmm.. well , the inner notes of the 1993-1996 compilation say:

Tracks 1-7 Recorded November 1994 @ Jason's house in Arlington by Mike Swint.
Tracks 8-10 recorded June 1996 @ Patrick Maguire Studios in Arlington.

So it's impossible Supplication ever released anything.
Technically it shouldn't be here so I'm nuking it. Good job-

Ur Nord Germanisch
Spoiler: show
I saw this band in the genre change thread and I don't think it's actually metal at all.

Samples:
Ein Mjollnir statt ein Kreuz: https://yadi.sk/d/ogOkbMNN3A8kQo
Le magicien des fjords: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFh8HOiBvrs
A Sacral Day: https://soundcloud.com/user-597112908 (Most/all tracks here)
Son of the Giant: https://wodansohn.bandcamp.com/track/son-of-the-giant

Can't find samples of these two, but they're described as ambient here:
Im Reich wo nur das Überleben zählt: http://lemondedenarcisse.free.fr/demo.htm
Gebet für Wodan: http://deiseal.free.fr/BC/mailorder/cat ... autres.htm

These two releases aren't even by this band:
Oubliettes: https://www.discogs.com/Oubliettes-Secr ... se/9840333
Ur Nord Germanisch: https://www.discogs.com/David-Engels-Ur ... se/7876318

The guy's other band, The Mythologians, is suspect as well. There is a linked review and this listing, but can't find any samples.


Nuked. Pure Ambient.
The Mythologians. The review doesn't say much... benefit of a doubt for now. Might need research...
[edit: contacted his facebook page]

Re "The Mythologians"
The guy answered and said all of his works are "ambiant", they only differ in the theme, so it's the same music as Ur Nord Germanisch.
-> Deleted.

When I submitted the band Through The Clouds in 2018, it was rejected by Azmodes with the note, that the sample songs sound like melodic hard rock and the full album would be needed. Now the band was submitted with the very same songs and album and it was accepted as power metal What happened? The album was already out 2018, as the links in my report prov. If the album was re-recorded with a heavier sound or the label has something screwed something up in 2018 ,then it was certainly not my fault and I would expect some fair treatment, not just closing the report without a word of explanation. Please, explain, what happened? Thanks.
P.S. I still have my original submission of Through The Clouds in my drafts. https://www.metal-archives.com/report/view/id/662069

It was submitted with a link to Bandcamp (full stream), hence sufficient sampling. EDIT: Relistening to it, I have my doubts whether it belongs after all, though. I'll ask for other mods' input.

EDIT2: Genre adjusted, band stays.

Why is Alestorm on here? They are nothing more than a half-assed power metal band with synthesized folk instruments and even more half-assed vocals. They defy all band acceptance rules of this site.

You answered your own question yourself. They're metal, even if you dislike them. Quality doesn't change if a band is acceptable or not.

Yes. I don’t like them. But they are not metal ENOUGH, by your standards, it seems. If they can be on here, then I can think of so many other hard rock/half-assed power metal bands that have been kicked out of here. Perhaps it’s a question of being unfair instead of me not liking them.

While we’re on the subject, can we see Appalachian Terror Unit kicked off of here? They are more on the punk side of crust punk, and not enough on the thrash metal side, in the tradition of Aus-Rotten.

They were accepted based on the "Armaggeddon Won't Be Brought by Gods...but by Men Who Think They Are" EP.
I'm gonna take a look at the discography soon ;)

lol, the difference between likely all of those bands you can think of and Alestorm is that Alestorm ACTUALLY IS power metal. We aren't being unfair at all.

About a half year ago I asked about the Japanese band Metalfolk being a cover band and the answer was, that there is an ongoing investigation about the nature of the covered material. Are there already some results of that investigation?

There is a band in the Archives: Hail The Sensei (https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Ha ... 3540345491) no releases, no information on the web to be found, no members nor line up, but still accepted on the Metal Archives, why was this band accepted?

Because they used to have CDs for sale/trade through their Myspace.

See the additional notes. It clearly says "released at least one album on CD". This means that, at the time of submission, there was proof of the existence and validity of the physical releases, but there was no other information available that could make possible to add the CDs to the discography section. If there's proof of the existence of releases, but there's not enough information to have a release added, then a mention in the additional notes is written about it. There could be many reasons a release can't be added in the discography section, but the most usual are incomplete/unknown tracklists and unknown date of release.

How did Revenge (Springfield, Massachusetts) get in here? Let alone get labeled Thrash/Crossover? They sound more like a straight up hardcore band to my ears.

There's no note on the original submission, but based solely on the date of submission, it got accepted based on the 2009 self-titled album.

Phil Accardi's Chalice plays pure aor, not metal at all:

http://heavenlyhardrock.blogspot.com/20 ... -1988.html
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-IyqUvTEsE

Edit: Another band - Watchmen.

I have recently listened to their first demo Fear No Evil and while the title track is a good heavy metal song in Dio style, the rest of the songs are just commercial hard rock with dominant keys and not metal. The second album is even more commercial , being a pure aor/melodic hard rock output. samples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXQ2bqOoerM
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E13DAyt ... WzcCv1nTD3

Edit 2: Fat Sally - New Zealand-not only they cover AC/DC, but their own songs are pure hard rock in AC/DC style. Full concert in Auckland from 1987:

Personally, I haven't done much investigating on this yet, but on Discogs it says "Traditional Japanese folk songs played in metal style." which would make it acceptable, if true.

I agree, neither full-length sounds acceptable. This is certainly not crossover thrash. Deleted.

About a half year ago I asked about the Japanese band Metalfolk being a cover band and the answer was, that there is an ongoing investigation about the nature of the covered material. Are there already some results of that investigation?

Original question : viewtopic.php?f=3&t=65721&start=3720

Personally, I haven't done much investigating on this yet, but on Discogs it says "Traditional Japanese folk songs played in metal style." which would make it acceptable, if true.

Some of the original versions of the songs from the single;

All folk songs from the '70s.

Thanks for the links, but that just confirms, what I thought. The band covers modern folk songs and not ttraditional Japanese folk songs. As I understand it, when ti would be real traditinal folk songs, you wouldeither not know the author of the song or it would be declared a common cultural heritage of a nation, without the need to pay any fees to the author - for example the Christmas carol Silent Night. That brings me also to a thought , that the traditional folk song has to be at least from the nineteenth century or earlier. The situation of Metalfolk could be comparable to a situation of a fictional heavy metal band, which specializes in covering Bob Dylan songs. Such band would be hardly accepted here, wouldn't it? Please, could some mods share their views on this matter again? Thanks.

A question about the French Folk/Black Metal band Naastrand:
Youtube: show


The entire album consists of metallicized military marches and traditional folk songs with no known authors. All the compositions are theirs with the exceptions of "Seigneur barbare" and "La blanche hermine" which are covers of the RAC band Ultime Assaut and the Breton/French folk musician Gilles Servat respectively. Does this violate the spirit of a band being accepted on account of their material? Could a band be accepted to Metal-Archives if all their compositions are original but the lyrics aren't?

The band must have made three albums/demos:
https://scontent-amt2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5CBB9D0E

The debut is the only one listed on MA:
https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/A ... aven/80444
I can't find samples online, but I know that BlackMetalGirl is still active.

Sophomore release:
https://www.jamendo.com/artist/355684/a ... oul/albums
Very few metal moments. Mostly rock.

Can't find the other album, Quattro, either.

Is it necessary to have both entries in this case?

Vavoura band https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Va ... iscography sounds predominantly 70s hard rock to me:
1980 single:
https://youtu.be/uJMEQVU4IOo (this is probably their most metal sounding track)
https://youtu.be/Uc23jGOOGNs

1982 split:
https://youtu.be/nLCCRZ1g2V8 70s hard rock/early metal ala Deep Purple
https://youtu.be/F_mP-WIstXQ - blues ballad and it is almost two times longer than the previous track


From live archival compilation:
https://youtu.be/AfI70g7tI7Q
https://youtu.be/gecVnSgW5b4
https://youtu.be/qx9iDYcayQg

Seems like this was accepted based on the first single only. Sounds like hard rock...
Looking into this.



Any updates?
