Maybe they were Brutal Deathcore earlier, but I listened to their latest LP and it was bog-standard deathcore in the vein of bands like Within Destruction or Signs of the Swarm (which are both just listed as "Deathcore" and nothing else on here). Maybe this band should be listed as just "Deathcore" or maybe the other two bands and the myriad ones like them on the archives should be tagged as Brutal, but something isn't labeled right here. Way too many melodic riffs and atmosphere and far too few slams to be truly Brutal, IMO.

Three of this band's full lengths, The Shadows That Stride from World to world, Let Them In and Lurking in the Void Between Dreams are played in a bizarre, cut-up, avant-garde and almost non-music style. The initial recordings seem like standard noise/grindcore, but some of the tracks don't even feature mashed up recordings, but brooding ambient/experimental/noise/avant-garde tracks. Would an additional "Mid" between their early and later phase be appropriate, or does it not matter and it's the original recordings that do? Just curious.

Bumping this from almost 5 years ago. I too was recently wondering why Icon was labeled "Power Metal". I think Heavy Metal/Hard Rock (early), AOR (later) would be more appropriate.

Current genres: Power Metal (early), Heavy Metal/Hard Rock (later)

Their first album is in no way power metal of any kind. It's much closer to contemporary glam metal, albeit on the heavier side. If this is power metal, so is WASP's first few LPs. You could probably make a reasonable case for Dokken, too. Basically any post-NWOBHM American heavy metal band would be power metal (which to me seems like the inevitable conclusion of the "USPM" push but I digress). Here's the whole thing on YT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPBe6iQ81qI

Also AOR is a much more appropriate label for their later stuff. Check out Night of the Crime for an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pF6yFY2ziUs

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)
Into the Distant Light

Bumping this from the last page.

Bumping again.

Knuckle Dragger's genre is fine, except I think Hardcore should be added to the tag; their three releases prior to the new ep were very hardcore, and less so death metal. So "Powerviolence/Grindcore/Hardcore/Death Metal."
https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Kn ... 3540450521
https://knuckledraggertn.bandcamp.com/ (4-Way Split, Pinion / Knuckle Dragger, self titled)

Agoraphobic Nosebleed's genre is fine except Cybergrind needs to be added to the Grindcore tag (Cybergrind/Grindcore, Sludge/Doom Metal). They play more straightforward grind on Honky Reduction and Agorapocalypse, but are far more on the electronic cyber side of grind on Frozen Corpse Stuffed With Dope and--especially--Altered States of America.

Full of Hell's genre makes sense, somewhat, but they definitely play powerviolence and noise on their newest album. Might it just be better to condense the genre to "Powerviolence/Grindcore/Death Metal, Noise" (since the noise is played separate from the main genre, such as single tracks or segments of songs, or like the full EPs) and write in the notes that they shifted to a more deathgrind sound on their last two albums?
* https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Fu ... 3540438869
* https://fullofhell.bandcamp.com/album/weeping-choir (noise and powerviolence)
* https://fullofhell.bandcamp.com/album/t ... ng-ecstasy (no noise, but powerviolence)
* https://fullofhell.bandcamp.com/album/a ... eavy-light (I know this was a one off collaboration, but it is definitely "noise" and "powerviolence" to describe the later genre)
* https://neurotrecordings.bandcamp.com/a ... ike-i-ache (Another one off collaboration that fits the noise and powerviolence in the later style)

I've also seen that Slam has been added as a genre, and here are four band's that fit this tag:
* https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Ma ... 3540408586
* https://mancubus1.bandcamp.com/album/yo ... el-ep-2015

* https://horrifiedproductions.bandcamp.com/album/promo
* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JJ_MuRKuUY

I'm not really sure why Noctem has thrash in their genre; they've just sounded like Melodic Black/Death their entire discography.

* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMb88dwS0BU
* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnTblcwCJYg
* https://noctem.bandcamp.com/album/haeresis

Spirit Possession sounds like first wave black metal, so I think Black/Speed Metal fits them better because they certainly aren't pure "black metal."
* https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Sp ... 3540462766
* https://spiritpossession.bandcamp.com/album/2020-demo

Inhuman Nature is definitely defined as "crossover" on their new album. They have some crossover elements, with more hardcore elements on their first EP; vice versa on their new album. So, Thrash Metal/Crossover/Hardcore should be fine.
* https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/In ... 3540431445
* https://inhumannature.bandcamp.com/album/inhuman-nature

Tore Fagerheim is an artist I've been meaning to bring up for a while now. His full length album, which got him accepted, was pure Melodic Death Metal; however, he needs additional tags. He ventures into pure Metalcore at times. He also has many singles, of many different styles. I think his genre needs to be extended to "Melodic Death Metal, Metalcore, Various." I think the comma works better because he ventures between the really melodic melodies and then into harsh palmuting; not really musically combining the two at the same time.

* https://metalguitarstuff.bandcamp.com/t ... king-track

Also, I think Rambo Hates Rainbows needs a slight addition, too. They released a Noisecore album in the middle of their discography, so "Black/Sludge/Doom Metal, Noisecore, Electronic." Of the few releases they have, it's the only other full length and the second longest release, so it's a legitimate style they've played. I can't find the first demo, but it included all three styles as well separately.

I'm really sorry about this one, guys. Picha's early tag is mildly incorrect; the grindcore/noise early tag as it is would be accurate for a band like Full of Hell or Hatred Surge, but these two releases merit it two different genres: Noisegrind/Gorenoise. Both are uniquely different and are heavily incorporated in both. The noisegrind aspect of it incorporates heavy noise over grind riffs while having an odd uniqeness to it (like Anal Cunt or ShitFuckingShit's first album: https://shitfuckingshit.bandcamp.com/al ... -2006-2007). The gorenoise aspect is seen in parts of the first release and heavily in the second, where it is essentially harsh noise wall-grind, or basically goregrind with the gain and level turned up all the way. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyR9G-IALWA) those two samples/examples lay out the difference in the two and show how it is present in the early tag for Picha.
* https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Picha/3540427636
* https://picha.bandcamp.com/album/carepicha
* https://picha.bandcamp.com/album/culiando-renalmente


Gatecreeper are known for having started the hardcore influenced death metal and consistently incorporate it as a secondary genre. I'm not a huge fan of the influences/elements genre tag, but I think adding hardcore as one or the other is appropriate in this case. The hardcore sound is too representative to completely ignore for them.

* https://gatecreeper.bandcamp.com/album/ ... epravation
* https://gatecreeper.bandcamp.com/album/gatecreeper

Death to Honor (pre-Waking the Cadaver) are just listed as "death metal." It's definitely not the slamming brutal stuff they played once they changed their name, but it's still very hardcore influenced, so I'd suggest Death Metal/Hardcore or Death Metal/Deathcore. They don't "slam;" they just play death metal with hardcore influenced chugging.

I just realized that Infectious Grooves is on here and think that's awesome, but why is their genre funk rock? They play Funk Metal, a sub genre of Alternative Metal. They sound far less like Betty Davis and Funkadelic and more like Primus, Faith No More, and The Beyond. I would even say in the same vein as Scatterbrain, but that's a topic for another time (unless someone else thinks that "heavy" should be replaces with "Alternative").

About the band Abaddon, I'd like to suggest adding symphonic black metal (early) in their genre.

As per their biography:

Quote:
Abaddon's coming into life dates back to 1995 when the band was founded as symphonic black metal band riding the wave of this highly emotional and epic style.

The band Chronicle from Denmark is under the genre "Blackened Melodic Thrash Metal". I really don't think this is even remotely accurate. I don't hear any black metal in their music aside from maybe a borderline riff here and there and the thrash influence is questionable at best. Their first album and following EP sound like straight-up melodic death metal to me. They have a new song from their most recent album and I don't think it falls under the existing genre either but rather is closer to melodic death metal IMO.

I understand new albums released under 'The Kovenant' are electronic/industrial metal releases, but they also re-released all of their 'Covenant' albums under this name as well, and all of those albums were melodic black metal. So wouldn't the genre tag "Electronic/Industrial Metal, Melodic Black Metal" be more fitting?

Both classic albums under 'The Kovenant': https://www.discogs.com/The-Kovenant-In ... se/2759853 and https://www.discogs.com/The-Kovenant-Ne ... se/2973429

Needs to be added to the rules that re-releases of previous names don't count for the current one. Covenant members aren't added to the The Kovenant line-up either, that's how you can see it's official policy even if the admins haven't spelled it out in the rules yet.

Normally, I'd probably edit the last post to add this in; but I think this is more important than that.

This one has been bothering me for a while. Why is Hermetica (https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/He ... 9tica/2721) listed as only Thrash Metal? Apart from the first album (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-q796hC ... sX4lfd81NY and I'd say even that has more of the thrash/speed metal flavor of early Metallica and some straight speed metal and heavy metal tunes), they are mostly a heavy/speed metal band with some thrash riffs strewn about (https://open.spotify.com/artist/6j6Ld5h0aFgH0VQWQNazS7 "Intérpretes", "Ácido argentino", "Víctimas del vaciamiento").

hey guys... I play in Necrogosto and woud like to ask if someone is able to change the music genre from "black/thrash" to "black/death metal".

there are some links to reviews and a release where you can find the reason why it's wrong... but I think giving a listening to it may solve the doubt. thank you very much the help.

The band Bütcher i think it was listed as a heavy/speed/black metal before, and now it's changed to speed metal. I think this should be reverted because they are not a pure speed metal band. There's also a elements of black metal and heavy metal in the majority of their songs.

https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/B%C3%BCtcher/19687

Quote:
Bütcher's first full-length album! A furious frenzy of speed, black & heavy metal - all brewed in a cauldron of analog & vintage recording material. An acquired taste, to be savoured by old skool metal maniaks!

If you're into Agent Steel, Celtic Frost, Nifelheim, Venom, Exciter, Darkthrone, Manowar, Deströyer 666, Slayer,... go ahead, check us out!

Three of this band's full lengths, The Shadows That Stride from World to world, Let Them In and Lurking in the Void Between Dreams are played in a bizarre, cut-up, avant-garde and almost non-music style. The initial recordings seem like standard noise/grindcore, but some of the tracks don't even feature mashed up recordings, but brooding ambient/experimental/noise/avant-garde tracks. Would an additional "Mid" between their early and later phase be appropriate, or does it not matter and it's the original recordings that do? Just curious.

the topic asks for links, reviews and so on. I posted it all. also there's the music to be listened to. and of course, a band member asking nicely for the change because it's just wrong to call this genre "black/thrash". it's simply black metal or black/death metal. but ok, maybe there's no use for this topic anyway?

still would appreciate if someone who actually read the links could help. thanks.

I listened to the music, which is what really matters when it comes to genres. Review and such are kind of the backup plan when the music itself isn't available to us.
Genre stays.

there's so little thrash elements in our music that it feels stupid arguing about it. band says you are wrong, serious label says you're wrong, serious reviewers say you are wrong, but ok, then. I asked very respectfuly and gave the links proving a very reasonable common sense over the band's music genre, but with the judge/god attitude as if someone who spent a lifetime listening to extreme metal - and actually wrote the songs - dont know nothing about it, well, just let it be wrong...

And they're all wrong. This is so obviously thrash that it's not even funny. If you don't hear the thrash in your sound on the demo, you seriously need to learn what thrash metal sounds like.

Blood and Thunder are definitely Symphonic/Melodic Death Metal, as evidenced by the latest stuff. Haven't actually heard their earlier albums but their last stuff is definitely symphonic.

Maten al Rey might have started out as heavy/power, but their 2009 album went a hard rock way, and their newest album is straight soft pop rock.

I'd suggest the tag: Melodic Heavy/Power Metal (early); Hard Rock (mid); Pop Rock (later) or Melodic Heavy/Power Metal (early); Hard/Pop Rock (later). Their 2009 release is way heavier than their latest one though.

Some songs:

Based on their first album (https://sobretuscenizas.bandcamp.com/al ... us-cenizas) and the few songs I've heard from their latest release, STC could be possibly considered "Technical Metalcore", given the huge amount of riffs, guitar work and overall virtuosity or ambitiousness of their songs.

Gotta say, Hunde des Krieges really isn't Thrash Metal. It's more Groove/Heavy Metal with RAC influences, although it seems somewhat thrashy on account of the Hardcore influences. I know PaganiusI took care of Witcher's removal request and deemed them to be Metal enough. Perhaps we should revise the genre.

Yeah, I wanted to revise that anyway. Will get back to it today, hopefully.

*Edit: Changed to Heavy Metal/RAC.*
