Hi all!
The question is about Russian band Karma (https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Ka ... 3540398878).
In 2019 it changed name into "Karma Embrace" and the band's MA page was altered thus belonging to band "Karma Embrace" (the old name "Karma" remained according to the years being active under this moniker).
Maybe "Karma" page and "Karma Embrace" page should be two different pages yet linked together as "changed name"? Because the band has some valid releases as "Karma" and there are some former members of "Karma" who are now linked to "Karma Embrace" but actually never played in this band's incarnation.

If I posted this in the wrong thread please point me to the right forum thread.

We create new pages only after a significant change in band name. Rhapsody --> Rhapsody of Fire is a minor change in name and we kept all releases on one page. Massakren --> Starkill is a significant change and warrants two separate pages. Moderator discretion applies and we work on a case-by-case basis.

Karma --> Karma Embrace is no more significant of a change than the Rhapsody example, thus the bandpage certainly need not be split.

Sorry, to resurrect a two month old thread, but it didn't seem right to create a whole new one when this already had a fitting title and subject.

The band E-X-E released their first demo under the name Executioner. Using other MA-listed bands as a measuring stick, this seems like a significant name change. However, E-X-E is somewhat of a known band and has been on MA since 2002, so I feel like someone has to have taken notice of this before me. Any mods have thoughts on this?
