There was someone told me, a mod to be more specific, that there are 2 bands of the large unnecessary list that I published a long time ago, that sound potentially nukeable, which are these:

Amora Savant (USA): Metalcore predominantly core:

A Crow's Glory (Canada): Straight-up hardcore instead of metalcore:
https://acrowsglory.bandcamp.com/

Both deleted.

I was the one who approved them, still sounds okay to me.

hm, leaning towards it being borderline acceptable alt/groove metal. Debatable, I suppose, really knuckle-dragging stuff...

I know Witcher seems to be trying to get the site to weed out National Socialist/white supremacist bands, because too many were deemed to be more punk than metal. Here's one I saw that seems to fit the bill, at least in terms of being a white supremacist act (not sure about the music).

https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Bl ... ngth/58353

What proof is there it is actually black/death metal? They supposedly recorded an album that was never released, and a demo that was never released. No band member information is available (if they had members listed, and others were members of some other bands here, that would increase the likelihood in believing this is metal). Has anyone actually heard them? How do we know the music contents are indeed death/black metal?

No links are listed, so what proof do we have this is metal?

Here's another band listed as black metal, but no albums listed in the discography section.

https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Or ... anco/30328

What proof is there the band did indeed play black metal?


I'm absolutely convinced Orgullo Blanco is fake since the submitter is "ArchDevil", one of the many pseudonyms used by Bathym of Perdition. Bathym claimed Kenny Greene was an old friend and bandmate in Perdition, but when asked for photos, he included a picture of actor Michael Bailey Smith.
https://www.discogs.com/artist/1005835-Arch-Devil
https://www.discogs.com/Perdition-Death ... se/5635099

Exact photo of Michael Bailey Smith used:
https://fanpix.famousfix.com/gallery/mi ... /p10129811

"Axis Power Records" was a fictional label created by Bathym. Another user who's no longer here and I were both privy to Bathym's many elaborate hoaxes and bizarre claims, not the least of which included releasing other bands' respective discographies as either his own or one of the many "bands" signed onto his label Rusted Nails Records. For example, RNR "band" Parthenon is, in fact, a Greek jazz-fusion group called Άβατον [Avaton / Abaton].

Perdition was removed from Metal-Archives many moons ago after found to have been faked. Perdition's sole Black Metal demo "Forgotten Rites" is certainly Metal, but the song "Ritual Rape" has been proven to be Nosvrolok's "Winds of the Cursed" with Bathym shrieking over it, which led us to believe the other material on said demo was forged from other releases. At one point, Bathym claimed a guitarist in Perdition called "The Unknown" was a member of Nosvrolok, but considering his established reputation as less-than-reliable on account of his chronic asspained over being unpersoned by FMP, I surmised this was either another one of his many tall tales or one of Nosvrolok's crew deciding on a whim to hand Bathym a demo/rehearsal version to have fun with. The latter assumption is based solely on the fact that both Perdition and Nosvrolok were from California (which lends only a tiny shred of plausibility), so I put my money on the former.

In any case, Bathym has been guilty of doing this several times over. Bergen Belsen SS, Quisling and Muslimcorpse were all fake bands with no known releases. Bathym has claimed bands purportedly from locatoins as far away as South Africa and Latin America were also part of his Anti-Wulfhere Front with absolutely no substantiating evidence.

I highly doubt Orgullo Blanco is real.


In tthe light of all this, vcan the band Orgullo Blanco be lolooked on again? When I was a moderator, I have renoved two of bands submitted by ArchDevil for being fake. They were the "nsbm" bands Quiling and Bergen Belsen SS. He even placed the latter band on his USBM list, which he maintained at the time and created a fake biograpy and membes for it, such as the guitarist Paul "Spicslayer" Carter. There sistill could be traces of both bands being listed here in the database or not? I am no computer expert.

Not sure if they are considered metal enough to be submitted, so seeing what people think.

Ashcorn are an Industrial / Groove Metal band from Italy; they released one album and one EP but are very inactive now.

You got it wrong, mate. I am not a moderator, but this thread is for bands, which the users think are not metal, so the moderators can evaluate them and possibly remove them from the page. It is not for pre-check of bands, which are not listed on the page. In fact, this forum does not serve such purpose.

Is this band really eligible for M-A since boths songs of their only release are covers? Also even just musically the single may be considered more hard rock than metal:

While you're absolutely right here, we advise that you leave these comments to us.

Shadowzgoth, if you think it's metal enough and acceptable, feel free to submit it. If it's blacklisted, use the "Band Appeals" forum to make a case for it. But yes, we don't do pre-checks.

Is it valid to order to delete those metal bands for which they have no current evidence that their albums were released by themselves or their label?

no. Unless they are still upcoming or there is bulletproof evidence that it has never been released.
Just because there's no evidence now, doesn't mean there never was, and given that it's needed in order to get a band accepted, there most likely was evidence at one point in time.

That's almost definitely an oversight owing to the Spanish retitling/lyrics. Deleted, thank you for catching that.

Same issue with the download links, but I found the first album elsewhere. It's a mixed bag, some clearly metal, some more like Evanescence. Not gonna decide either way here without checking the other album.

Bumping this one as well, as I still believe Design 19 is goth rock with very sparse metal riffing. Glimmer is obviously not metal at all.
Even if the band's to stay as a side project (don't know the history myself), the genre should be changed to Gothic Rock (early); Industrial/Electronica (later)

It stands for Rock Against Communism, a byword for racist/nazi rock. It's sometimes used (like in the MA) to refer to this sound, rather influenced by Oi!, which many of these far-right bands have.

Well, this is not a complaint to have Suffokate removed exactly, but rather to have their discography thoroughly evaluated because according to the urban legends of Metallum, the band "was accepted due to a bad decision" by Witcher in 2007 based on the debut "Oakland" and 4 or 6 years later it was decided to leave Suffokate permanently on Metallum, based on "Return to Despair".

No. You need to take it easy, this is not what this thread is for. Whether these notes are necessary or not is for the staff to decide. That includes bringing up their possibility at all. If you feel the band clearly doesn't belong based on any release, be my guest. But we have enough work without dissecting something over the question of maybe adding a note to pinpoint the exact moment of when a borderline band became the right kind of borderline. As you observed, the answer to the basis of Suffokate's inclusion can already be found on the forum and it may very well suffice for this case.

Yeah, that same, I feel the band clearly doesn't belong based on any release. You got it :3

I can't find samples of their prior three albums, but based off this one, I don't think SoulMotor is acceptable. There's some Alice in Chains/Black Label Society riffs scattered about, but this sounds much more in common with Papa Roach style radio rock. If it is somehow acceptable HM/HR, then the genre label should be changed from "progressive metal".

When is a band only having one 2-song digital single acceptable and when isn't it? I'm only curious, because I've had bands (since updating digi-only release bands acceptance) rejected for having this same kind of thing going on and the reason given was that a 2-song digi only release was not sufficient.
