If a release includes an unlisted cover song, either "hidden" at track 0 or after the last song, like here for.ex:
https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/S ... nal/105523 , should there be a ([band] cover) included in the track name/title?

how bout if the song is untitled, or both? I've come across an "untitled" song that is actually a Katatonia cover somewhere, ages ago...

on one hand, not listing it respects the band's wishes (and royalty statements), on the other, users looking for a cover that is on the archives may not find it...

thanks.

also, who should https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carol_of_the_Bells be attributed to, as a cover of?

How it's handled in that example looks fine to me.

If it's not hidden as such and we rather have a definitive tracklist full of "-", you can append the cover tag to the track "title" as you would normally.

It's not nitpicking. It's a good question and far from a simple issue.
