Selective Aggression was originally submitted on the basis of the demo featuring much more metallic music. Initially, it was rejected on account of being "too short" as a digital release despite featuring five different songs and quite professional studio quality. That demo was eventually issued on tape and sold at live shows. Does this count as a physical release?

Only after the release of Spiritual Warfare was Selective Aggression accepted. The second release is much more Hardcore. In fact, I believe it merits a change to the genre field to reflect the transition.

Still, I believe the band to be acceptably Metal on account of the first release, especially now that it has a physical format.

Suggested change: Thrash Metal/Hardcore/Metalcore

Why doesn't Burzum have dungeon synth in its genre? There are 7 bands on MA that are labelled as dungeon synth, so I assume it's now allowed.
So the correct genre for Burzum is "Black metal, Ambient/Dungeon synth".

Ever since I submitted Barbarus (USA), I felt that calling it pagan/doom metal didn't sound right. I made a report for this, but it got closed without any comment. I still can't put my finger on exactly what would be more accurate, but this is certainly not doom metal (imo). I just wrote that hoping someone would come up with something better.

So anyway, here are the albums on Bandcamp:
Barbarus I (+ instrumental version)

Add ''technical thrash metal'' to the Holocausto genre, so that it is:
Black/Thrash Metal (early/later), Crossover/Thrash Metal, Technical Thrash Metal (mid), Experimental Industrial (1993)

This might be a controversial post, but I'm just curious...

Why is Rush's genre "Hard Rock/Heavy Metal (early), Progressive Rock (later)"? I only ask because by having it as such, it seems to me it's referring to their debut as being the former (which I agree with) and the remainder of their career being progressive rock since they went prog on Fly by Night. That said, I never considered Rush's output from Fly by Night to Hemispheres to be progressive rock as the riffs are too heavy. Personally, I consider these albums the beginnings of progressive metal. From then on, it seems they strode the line, with future albums leaning towards progressive rock and a few metal songs here and there. That is until Clockwork Angels which returns to the progressive metal sound, but I digress. Could Rush's genre be changed to "Progressive Metal/Rock"? Here are a handful of songs that could warrant this genre change. If not, I understand. Thank you...

Mybad, I should have linked the band, it's the one from Brazil. Similarly named though.

Ah, my bad. I'll take a look at them soon.

I am sure there are way more artists on MA that should be labelled as dungeon synth. I would add that genre to Summoning as well, but for now Burzum is the main issue. I don't think anybody is going to argue with this, I'm surprised it's not done already.

Would also like to bump Draconian (link to issue), I'm sure their demos were just forgotten.

Sorry if I'm misunderstanding something, but isn't "ambient" a genre which contains all kind of synths, guitars, drums, sounds made by a machine, [or bongos (?] or anything that could create from naive, to just relaxing atmospheric sound? I think that dungeon synth is not necessary in any case of any band on MA, because ambient genre forms part of everything (In my opinion!)

If I'm wrong I think adding dungeon synth would be feasible, because it's correct anyways... I third that.

Here's what ambient sounds like.
Here's dungeon synth.
I think nobody is going to argue about Burzum being closer to the second example than the first one. Some stuff of his still sounds ambient, so double tag would be OK, I guess.

Actually, a lot of bands on MA are wrongly labelled as dark ambient. This mostly concerns neoclassical darkwave projects of black metal musicians, so I don't report them, since I doubt they are going to be evaluated.

Similar to how we don't go back and label various classic 90s bands as "depressive black metal" or "slam" because a later movement has "claimed" a band as part of that label, just because we accept a current genre tag on modern bands who can be accurately as such means we need to go back and retroactively change perfectly valid genre tags on bands that are accurately categorized as such.

Genre labels such as ambient are extremely broad, and we are not particularly interested in your nitpicking about what is and isn't ambient or goth or whatever. The majority of ambient, dark ambient, and darkwave genre tags on this site are functionally understandable and do not require re-evaluation.

If the “history” of when the movement started is a problem, then this shouldn’t be an issue at all; the style was created and recognized in the early 90s by bands like Mortiis and Pazuzu (both of which I just realized are on here). Burzum popularized it with his two albums. However, I don’t agree with adding dungeon synth to a band like Summoning at all. The style is a secondary genre throughout, and in every instance of a band like this, simply “ambient” should suffice. The reason I think Burzum, Mortiis, and Pazuzu are different is because they literally have entire albums to showcase the style, while being the forefathers of the movement in the 90s. The whole point of the movement was to crate a medieval/fantasy, Tolkien worship breed of music, and all three did exactly that.

By this logic Black Sabbath shouldn't be doom metal and Venom/Bathory/Celtic Frost shouldn't be black metal.

This is a better explanation, since non-metal bands simply aren't a priority to the site. But labelling all those non-ambient bands as ambient is the equivalent of labelling all thrash, black and death metal bands as screamo.

I will respect your decision, even though I don't agree with it.

Summoning is not ambient at all, they are a 100% example of dungeon synth. They have 2 dungeon synth EPs and lots of dungeon synth songs on their albums, so I think labelling them as dungeon synhth would be correct. But the moderators have another vision, so I won't argue with them.

You realize that Dungeon Synth is a Sub-genre of ambient, right?

In some sources dungeon synth is described as a subgenre or being influenced by dark ambient, but I don't agree with that at all. Ambient sounds like, well, ambient. It doesn't sound like normal music, it sounds like nature/environment. Basically it's industrial background noise. Dungeon synth is completely different, it's much closer to traditional music. It's not background noise, more like simplistic faux-medieval music.
Here's some dark ambient music, does this or this really sound like that?
Some Burzum songs sound like dark ambient or ambient to me, that's why I proposed Ambient/Dungeon synth tag. But dungeon synth is completely different from ambient.

Another incorrectly tagged non-metal genre is neoclassical darkwave. It's labelled as "Neoclassical/Darkwave" (most ridiculous one, it would be the same as labelling someone as Neoclassical/Metal), "Neoclassical/Dark Ambient", "Dark Ambient/Darkwave" and so on. The strangest one is Dark Sanctuary, who are labelled as "Darkwave/Gothic Neoclassical", which doesn't make sense at all. It would be way easier to just label all these artists as Neoclassical Darkwave, and maybe only a few bands as Dark Ambient. Rateyourmusic does a good job at labelling those bands, in my opinion.

I actually regret that I brought these issues up, they are clearly less important than the incorrectly labelled metal artists. I just thought I would give a shot at Burzum since he's clearly not just ambient, but whatever. I respect your decision if you think it's not that important.

Diplomate beat me to it, but for what it's worth, Rate Your Music treats Dungeon Synth as only a subgenre of Electronic Music and not Ambient despite the two having faint relations. I don't profess to be an expert on this subject, so perhaps a more informed opinion on this is needed.

I also am not an authority on this subject, but from my point of view dungeon synth is a completely independent genre that represents minimalistic medieval/fantasy style music. It may have influences from neoclassical darkwave and dark ambient, but overall it's a completely different thing. I think the confusion with dark ambient comes from the fact that it was referred to as dark ambient in the 90s, but it's merely that, a confusion. In most cases I can easily tell these three genres apart, and I believe even a person who has never heard these genres will be able to see the differences between the songs that I linked in my previous post.

Calling dungeon synth as a subgenre of dark ambient is like calling Slipknot death metal. They may have those influences, but do they fall within this genre? I don't think so.

Again, I second this. Dungeon synth may combine elements nicely with other experimental genres, like ambient/noise/drone, but as a style is more similar to something like progressive electronic or horror synth, which I would say is more electronic. Yes, on the distant side, like how post-punk and pop punk are still sub genres under the same umbrella as hardcore and Deathcore, but like it’s been said, ambient has little song structure and is essentially musical atmosphere. The opposite can be said about dungeon synth which is literally modern medieval music; the songs literally use ancient modes like Dorian instead of modern scales.

An example would be this Burzum song that’s in the Dorian mode:

I'm not an expert by any means talking about ambient genre, everything was good n' enjoyable to read until you putted that Slipknot has death metal influences as an example of sub-genres, this makes the conversation confusing to comprehend.

Well, Diplomate has a point here talking about Sabbath's example, now for the early days of black metal > Venom, Bathory, even in Hellhammer you'll see a huge influence coming from the punk, early black metal had lot of this, but definitely they're and were black metal.

The debate is feasible... I like it.

I didn't formulate my thoughts correctly, I mean when you call dungeon synth artists as dark ambient, fans of dark ambient react the same way as if you called Slipknot death metal. Slipknot may sound like death metal to the general audience, but we all know how laughable that is. I don't really see how a person with some hearing could confuse dungeon synth with dark ambient, apart from the situations when dungeon synth artists directly incorporate dark ambient sounds.

As for Venom/Bathory/Celtic Frost, I would say they are way closer to thrash metal than dungeon synth is to dark ambient. I also brought up this analogy because, as far as I know, they weren't called black metal in the 80's, they were thought to be thrash or death metal. I am not sure about that since I weren't alive during these years, but in some interviews Mayhem's music is referred to as brutal death metal, which doesn't make any sense now. Yet nowadays nobody argues about Bathory or Celtic Frost being black metal.

Dark Psychosis is listed as black metal but their music is more black/thrash. Their bio on their facebook also states it:

I see After Forever were recently changed from Symphonic gothic/power metal to just Symphonic/power metal. If that's the case, then those bands I listed definitely need to be stripped of the gothic tag as well, since in After Forever's case I could at least hear a few gothic rock style clean guitars on their debut album, but in Draconian, Sins and probably MDB I can't hear even that apart from a few cases. I would say Tristania's Widow's Weeds is not much more gothic than AF's Prison of Desire, so I still believe they need a death/doom tag addition, though their other albums are definitely gothic.



What makes After Forever power metal? I would suggest adding a "death metal/classical (early)" because of their first 2 albums. On http://www.metal-observer.com/ before the site crashed and lost all of their info, they had an interview with AF (after a crappy review of their first album) in which they asked them to describe their style, and I remember they said they play death metal with classical music parts. This part of the interview forever stuck with me, and it's an important fact to highlight.

Anyway, I called Metal Observer's review of their first album Prison of Desire crappy because the reviewer gave it a poor score, hammering again and again that AF wasn't gothic enough like Tristania... when they weren't trying to do that; their music was heavier, their riffs more death metal than gothic metal. Give Prison of Desire a listen, and you will notice how different it is from Tristania or Nightwish.

Sadly, that interview is lost but I did find another interview where they describe their early work as "death metal/classical". Matter of fact, there are quite a few articles on their death metal/classical era.


Quote:
Sander told us aobut the development of the band's sound, "The arrival of the keyboards changed our style, and we began to compose death metal with a classical and melodical touch.

I never thought I would touch on this old subject but I am glad I did. Those were good times :D

Would you mind including samples when posting here? We won't take your word on genres and we won't take a bands word on their genre.

What makes After Forever power metal? I would suggest adding a "death metal/classical (early)" because of their first 2 albums. On http://www.metal-observer.com/ before the site crashed and lost all of their info, they had an interview with AF (after a crappy review of their first album) in which they asked them to describe their style, and I remember they said they play death metal with classical music parts. This part of the interview forever stuck with me, and it's an important fact to highlight.

Well, this album indeed sounds like death/doom metal, but if you think After Forever deserves to have death/doom as their early genre, then Tristania should be labelled as gothic/doom as well, since both of these bands have these aspects only on their first albums. Mods disagreed about labelling Tristania as anything rather than gothic metal, so here you go.


Mods, sorry for bumping this again, but this issue is really small and I believe it won't take much time at all. Draconian's first two demos are definitely black/doom metal, is that enough to justify the genre change?

No, use the search function (and ideally stop making genre requests, you've only been somewhat correct once out of 9 times).

I'm sure he would have pushed strongly for them to be included. I'm guessing there was a fight among the mods over whether to include them, and it ended with Metantoine being imprisoned in Napero's Finnish ice wizard tower.
