Before everything I'm really happy with the new slam genre policy. Thank you!

Now to the point.
There are depressive black metal bands which are not cataloged as one, like Nocturnal Depression, Lifelover or early Hypothermia for example.
What should we do here? Because some users filled a report and the catalog stayed the same, I mean, for the new users which are discovering these bands could be a surprise seeing just "black metal" and then while listening bump depressive moaning suicidal sounds which I love, but is really different from the traditional bm and it may lead to confusion for the users that are not get used IMO. The same stuff occurs for some atmospheric black metal bands, I hope I made my point clear...
Cheers :)

Those genres are perfectly fine as they are. Not all black metal with a depressive undertone/theme is Depressive Black Metal. Same with atmospheric Black Metal. If you really feel the need to change the genres of bands (that have not been discussed to death already), well we got a thread for that:
