Good night.

I am a founding member of Distorção (Brazil). Our sound is Metal / Crust. I'll leave the link!

Thank you very much in advance


Link band:https://soundcloud.com/distcrust

Wrong time, wrong place, I guess? Neither rejected nor blacklisted or deleted and not even a valid release...or is it just promo?

Just querying why The Chemical Mind is blacklisted? I've tried searching in the forums and nothing's coming up.

The music is definitely Atmospheric/Post-BM, so i'm assuming maybe it's because it's a 'project' by Nick Krueger, as opposed to a full fledged band?

Blacklisted for being Post-Rock/shoegaze.

Hi!

I was going to add a band from the United States called Vomitorium, but I believe a totally different U.S. band with the same name has previously been blacklisted. I received this message:

"a band called "Vomitorium" (United States) has been blacklisted! Your submission will NOT go through."

The band I am trying to add was a thrash metal band from California and only put out one official demo in 1987 called "Ad Nauseam". If this is indeed the same band that was blacklisted, then I apologize for taking up your time. I searched the forums and couldn't find info on the blacklisted band with the same name. The one I am trying to add was indeed a metal band.

Thank you!

...You don't want to base your submission on the discogs entry, do you?
https://www.discogs.com/Vomitorium-1987 ... e/12569646
That looks more like a case for the research thread than the queue, unless you have something else to back that up.

It's that same demo, but I actually have a copy of it. Track listing, song lengths, band members, artwork. So, yes same demo, no not based on the discogs info.

I understand Angrboda’s Curse got rejected because the EP was too "makeshift/rough" and can't be accepted as digital band and I don't want to compare bands or anything like that but the reason I'm here is because bands with way rougher production have been accepted as digital only.
Here's the EP: https://angrbodascurseofficial.bandcamp.com/releases

I'm a bit more lenient when it comes to this stuff, but I fully understand why whoever dealt with this submission decided that it was too makeshift/rough as it doesn't only apply to the production but also the overall picture, effort and to some regards the musicians capability etc.
In this case it doesn't only have a rather rough production, but also heavily changing volume levels between the individual songs (track 3 in particular) which is kind of a no-go (or at least disregarded) in digital submissions as it gives away that the band didn't spend much effort on the release's overall sound.
Please wait for another release.

I didn't see that way but now I see why. I'll wait for another release and will re-submit it again as long as it meets all the requirements.
Thanks!

Deva Obida were blacklisted because of playing non-metal metalcore. However, they changed their style a lot and now play kinda melodic heavy/folk metal in veins of late Amorphis. I think it's right time to whitelist them now.
Here's their new album: https://play.google.com/store/music/alb ... y3wb7baczy
And their earlier single (not included in any album): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAbSwaviizo

Was trying to add Vegard from the UK but they appear to be blacklisted. Debut release out here which I believe should qualify for the archives folks?

I saw your report, that doesn't change the fact that youtube-only stuff does not count as a valid release.
There must be either a download or a physical (CD, Tape,...) of your demos to be acceptable.

I know non-metal side projects are a really grey area, but what more would Rainbowdragoneyes have to do to get on this site in that regard? It's Eric W. Brown who's a decently known metal drummer who has drummed for very well known bands: Nekrogoblikon, Swashbuckle, Vale of Pnath, Inferi, Destroy Destroy Destroy, and several more. This project has even toured with other metal bands like Alestorm, Lagerstein, and even his own bands Nekrogoblikon, Swashbuckle. He has numerous professional releases that are also physical. And I know it means nothing regarding the acceptance, but the music is rather black metal inspired. Is this enough to allow the project on as a non-metal side project?

We're trying to put a damper on the side-projects being added, (it's an ongoing debate on whether we should have them at all really). I'm a pretty big Rainbowdragoneyes fan (okay, I'm occasionally a pretty big fan). I don't really think it would count that much as a side-project. Eric did make the project while he was in Destroy Destroy Destroy and Inferi but as it is Rainbowdragoneyes does looks very much so more like a solo-project than a side-project. Magic Hammer would be more of a side-project since it stemmed from Rainbowdragoneyes initially. The music is pretty power metal inspired but none of the original songs are really metal or has metal-like riffs. As much as I would love to have them on here as we have MBR, gonna have to be a no. (that was a longer reponse than I meant to write)

They released a new album a few weeks ago; we could probably take a look and see if this is worthy or not.

Still sounds mostly rock-ish, even though it has some metal riffs dpread throughout the album.

I usually don't do this, but I am bringing up a band that I brought up before many years ago.

Admiral Angry.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQi07cOKMSE

What is different? Nothing, except I can provide a better argument and there is another release that I don't think was mentioned.

I personally feel that the album Buster is metal enough for the Archives. There are metal riffs from start to finish. I don't hear that many non-metal elements. The breakdown in Kill Yourself near the end might be a riff that is disqualified as metal, as it doesn't have much dynamic to it, but it still sounds as if a sludge metal band produced a massively heavy beatdown.

Sludge riffs, some that remind me of Eyehategod, are abound. The bass is as distorted and loud as the guitars, which provides this thick groove throughout most of the songs. Kill Yourself is a good example of this, a headbanging sludge riff that slows down before fading into a crawling tremolo. Then an even heavier sludge riff. This kind of pummeling and slow riff is not uncommon in extreme doom. Just listen to the middle of Skin Coat by Khanate. In fact, between the vocals and massive sounds in every instrument, I am reminded of Khanate quite a bit.

They also have an EP, A Fire to Burn Down the World is an almost 24 minute standalone track that combines crushing sludge riffs with elements of drone, crawling along at a funeral doom-like pace. It may be enough by itself to qualify Admiral Angry.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mw8mAL2YPws

I also tracked down their release 9/11... Only Worse, which was rereleased in 2012. It is their first demo and definitely has much more of a grindcore and power-violence influence. Probably not going to be enough to add them, even though I hear plenty of riffs (such as on I Want Yo Runway Hydraulic Shit (sic)) . Still neat sounding... https://sentientrecordings.bandcamp.com ... only-worse

There is a fourth release called Albania but from what I am reading it is technically unreleased. It is similar in style to 9/11... Only Worse.

Well, PDS already said he was "idk, leaning no", but requested more input which I kinda ignored/forgot. It sure is heavy, but I still hear a lot of non-metal chuggs and idk. Might be best to wait for the next album.

No. That album feels like pretty much pure sludgecore/unmetallic sludge. Lots of chugging and bouncing, the EP seems to be the same thing slowed down immensely and the demo is, well powerviolence/grind stuff

And their earlier single (not included in any album): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAbSwaviizo

Could you please pay any attention to this one?

It does sound like late-amorphis, but it also has barely if any metal-riffing. Def more rock than metal.

Hi there!

I submitted my own band, Divitius, and we were rejected on the basis of not being metal. I am confused as to what we could be classified as, if not metal. We have certainly always billed ourselves as being a metal band and we have the hallmarks of what I would consider "metal." I realize that other bands within our sub-genre of progressive metal and [sigh] "djent," such as Periphery, TesseracT, Monuments, SikTh, etc, also aren't listed here, so maybe it's just the position of the moderators that those bands aren't metal either - I would regard this as an odd viewpoint, but one that I would respect for its consistency. :)

Our debut album is here, for reference: https://divitius.bandcamp.com/album/the ... n-parallel
I mean, this sounds like a metal song to me: https://divitius.bandcamp.com/track/deja-vu-2

No disrespect or complaints intended, just curious!

Thank you!

Hi,

Wanted to apologize for my previous post. I did not see that bands that could conceivably be classified as "djent" were explicitly voted as "not being metal." I read the "simple version" and the "Long-ass, rambling, read-before-complaining-only version," but not the "detailed version" where this is laid out as a criteria. We definitely do aggressively palm-mute open strings from time to time.

As said in my previous post, it's not a position I share, but it's a consistent one that I respect.

Thanks!

PDS, I think that this band needs to be white-listed based on this album (their debut album): https://echoesofmisanthropy.bandcamp.co ... narcissism

Eques was evaluated based on their self-titled album and blacklisted. Is Beware of the Dog acceptable grindcore enough to be whitelisted? This sounds a lot like Wormrot or Cripple Bastards.

https://equesgrindcore.bandcamp.com/alb ... of-the-dog
This has also been released on cassette.

By no means don't let the rejection also stop your band from doing anything ya'll do. It is just not-metal by out standards as we identify djent and metal as something seperate unlike a lot of other places.

There's the occasional riff but I'm siding with the blacklist note, this is mostly -core breakdowns.

I'm wondering if Shy (United Kingdom) can be reevaluated based off their self titled 2011 album. While the majority of their career was AOR, this album sounds like melodic heavy metal/hard rock in the vein of Bonfire and Pretty Maids to my ear. Here's the full album...

I feel Sky Signals was wrongly blacklisted - it's clearly progressive metal. https://skysignals.bandcamp.com/track/chariot-of-nine
