The artist Aeon Bridge (literally me lmao) is incorrectly labeled as Speed/Thrash, when I have had the labels of Neoclassical/Progressive Metal most commonly attributed to me by friends and fans.

Archives Band link: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Ae ... 3540431114

Neoclassical example: https://aeonbridge.bandcamp.com/track/m ... vement-iii
Neoclassical example: https://aeonbridge.bandcamp.com/track/m ... -the-night

Progressive example: https://aeonbridge.bandcamp.com/track/b ... the-cosmos
Progressive example: https://aeonbridge.bandcamp.com/track/t ... boundary-2

It's not a big deal, but I think at the very least thrash should be removed.

I was only aware of their new album when I submitted, which is definitely groove metal. However, their first EP is heavy metal/hard rock.

Done.

Cross-posting from report queue:

After their last 2 Full-length releases, I feel Ihsahn should be re-considered Genre-wise.

Antioch mentioned back in 2015 that Ihsahn is shifting towards Post Metal/Rock. 2 Full-lengths later, I believe we can all agree he had valid points to claim that, even from back then.

Arktis. (2016) and, more recently, Àmr (2018) have marked an undeniable musical evolution towards the aforementioned style.
In fact, there's a plethora of elements that could be added next to his rather oversimplified genre: Black Metal can be argued. Avant-Garde and Post Metal/Rock cannot. Especially the later.

Ihsahn is a complex artist to be tagged as Extreme Progressive Metal. He is way more than that.

Progressive/Avant-Garde/Post Metal/Rock seems fitting.

Below you'll find samples from the 2 latest Full-lengths- as all the previous ones have been discussed in the past.

Sorry, they deleted their YouTube and Bandcamp, for some reason, so these are the only samples I can provide.

Callan Vincent needs a before/after tag now. He released his EP Synth City under his new style and has been the same with three more EPs and a couple of singles. The genre should be Melodic/Progressive Metal (early), Electronic/Chillwave (later). I know this site doesn't dive deep into non-metal genres, but chillwave is a subgenre of synthwave and electro/dream pop. Think of it like a slower, dreamy synthwave/electronic with a "chill" feel to it. Also, he blends the style with various other electronic genres, like 2-step and drum & bass (not to a significant degree at all), so having it "electronic/chillwave" is the most accurate way to describe it.

https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Ca ... 3540408546
https://callanvincent.bandcamp.com/albu ... d-of-light

And just so you know I haven't made up this genre:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chillwave


Also, I don't want to clog the report queue, so I'll let this sit here until someone gets to it but:

I posted this and there's a typo in the genre, Stone instead of Stoner, and it seems to have accidentally been copied to the band's genre tag. Also, I still think that Electronic should be added to the end of the tag.

Liturgy's new album, that everyone apparently hates, is incredibly different than their other albums. The Ark Work is Experimental Rock and an experimental/electronic subgenre called glitch, so the genre should be extended to "Experimental Black Metal, Experimental Rock/Glitch."
https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Liturgy/3540287759
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHWmwfLqjT8 (sorry)

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."

So, I have no idea about their other releases, but The Russian Legion's album Knights of Cross bears no resemblance to power metal at all, and little to traditional heavy metal. Mostly, it's really out-there tech-thrash/progressive metal/weird acoustic shit. Hear the full album here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBQSzCGbxC8

Again, the other albums may fall into the power/heavy metal spectrum, but I'd suggest making some kind of amendment to the genre mentioning this album or "early" or whatever. Just came across it and was expecting some slightly offbeat power metal and was like "...wut?"

I spent a while thinking about it. THe later albums definitely do sound a lot more rocky. I personally don't feel that there is enough post- to actually have it in the genre as the basis is still overall prog. But, there is a lot of experimenting that the post- can be put there from the different musical instrument influenced parts to the...whatever is the later half of Das Seelenbrechen (hell iirc Ihsahn said that there are bits of hip-hop influence in Amr?). I definitly do not think that there is enough change to warrent some before/after | early/later tags as it's basically a slider of rock elements and the later albums still have heavy song of black/death/extreme influenced prog. So, gonna do the catch all of Experimental/Extreme Progressive Metal/Rock in the case of how like (Coincedentally, or not) Leprous has Progressive Metal/Rock.

Morlok Von Grimorog - Most from the samples I heard just sounds like straight up prog metal with King Diamond vocals, genre seems to be fine (for me).

Callan Vincent - Changed.

Deafened - Already Changed

LIturgy - I think we should wait for another album. Experimental bands are a bitch and Ark Work could just be a one off....or HHH could just make another horrible experimental piece (apparently he is working with Opera or someshit? idk.)

Knuckle Dragger - I'm not good with Hardcore so this one still needs to be done.

Yeah, that's great. Thanks!

Well, Ihsahn is married to Einar Solberg's sister, and some of the current and past members of Leprous are session musicians in Ihsahn, so there's that.

Change it to Progressive/Melodic Death Metal, because the band sounds more like a mix of Mastodon, Dark Tranquillity, Old Flames and At the Gates, etc than a mix of Mastodon, Megadeth, Exodus and Overkill:

Ethereal, the band that would become Lacuna Coil, is listed on here as gothic doom metal, but the music of their one demo is very clearly death/doom in the vein of the Peaceville Three. All the male vocals are growled or shouted Paradise Lost style, and the music is often in a faster pace, with chunky death metal riffing throughout.

I suggest you change the Amboog-A-Lard genre.

I think that the label that AAL currently has is quite rare and exaggerated. I did not find much the right label, except for the Thrash, which is obvious.

1) Power Metal does not have it at all. It is an entirely pure Thrash Metal, but at the same time very peculiar. Follow the line of bands like Testament and Metallica, even the voices are similar to those of Chuck Billy

2) The Avant-garde Progressive Metal, has an explanation. And, is that this band experiences other sounds, as much in its first disc as in its demos; like acoustic guitars, quiet parts, use of different voices, etc. With Progressive it's fine for me, but it should be included in another way

_______________________________________________________

In summary, I would like you to change the genre of the band to:
Thrash Metal with Progressive influences

______________________________________________________

Demo 1990 (The song ''Edge Of Darkness'' is the only one that shows experimentation):

Demo 1991 (This demo shows a bit of experimentation):

Removed power metal. The "Avant-garde Progressive Metal" part is fine and describes their full-length rather well, considering how little thrash is actually present on it.

I would also like Jerry Cantrell to get rid of the Doom Metal.

Listening carefully, I do not notice anything about Doom. Maybe it can be for some slow and acoustic parts, added to its depressive lyrics, but the element of Doom Metal is not very present that we say. It's the same case as Alice In Chains

I so totally approve of this. I've been feeling as though death belonged in the equation, but wasn't sure if it was worth bringing up or not, so I'm glad to see someone agrees. :love:

I'm wondering if Hangman's Chair's newest material is different enough from their earlier material to constitute a genre change. Their early material is very stoner/southern sounding, but they've progressively snuck more gothic rock/post-punk influences into the mix to an extent that their latest album, Banlieue Triste, pretty much sheds all of the stoner elements of their earlier stuff. If anything, I am reminded more of Paradise Lost, Katatonia, Type O Negative, or even Celtic Frost's Monotheist album. Not only is there more of a gothic metal vibe in the heavy sections, but they have straight up gothic rock tracks in the mix as well. It's a lot more melancholic, depressive, atmospheric, with cleaner/more ethereal sounding vocals and more chorus effect on the guitars. Less bluesy and Crowbarish sounding.

I'm thinking there is a significant enough difference that the genre could potentially be changed to "stoner/doom metal (early), gothic/doom metal (later)"

https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Vltimas/3540448233

As they recently added to Vltimas, I would like to have their ''Blackened'' removed from their genre.

Listening to his recent album, most of its structure, riffs and voice, are totally Death Metal. Maybe they put the ''Blackened'' for the riffs and some slow parts. That is only a small influence, and it does not change it in total to become Blackened, because it would have to share characteristics of Black as voice, structure, and mostly riffs, so that they are well balanced to be Blackened Death. It's the same case as Veld, which many said was Blackened Death, but it's really just a Death Metal with Black influences in the riffs.

It should be noted that Blackened Death is not the same as Black/Death or Death/Black, as they are different styles.
If he became Blackened Death, he would have to sound like bands like Angelcorpse or God Dethroned, and that does not have them.

I wanted to suggest changing thrash on Lucifera's profile to black/thrash. They mention they play black/thrash in interviews. It's evident in their music. And it's mentioned in their facebook page

Mechanical God Creation is just now technical death metal, they left 100% their melodic death metal sound that were mixed with technical death metal completally. So, it needs to be changed to Technical/Melodic Death Metal (early), Technical Death Metal (later).

Latest album:

I would say this band is better described as Heavy/Thrash Metal.

Genre changed.

As they recently added to Vltimas, I would like to have their ''Blackened'' removed from their genre.

Listening to his recent album, most of its structure, riffs and voice, are totally Death Metal. Maybe they put the ''Blackened'' for the riffs and some slow parts. That is only a small influence, and it does not change it in total to become Blackened, because it would have to share characteristics of Black as voice, structure, and mostly riffs, so that they are well balanced to be Blackened Death. It's the same case as Veld, which many said was Blackened Death, but it's really just a Death Metal with Black influences in the riffs.

It should be noted that Blackened Death is not the same as Black/Death or Death/Black, as they are different styles.

Album:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLqzaCfovmg

The album is pretty much filled with recognizable fast/midpaced/slow BM riffs incorporated to their DM style, and it's so important/prominent enough that it can't be considered a mere influence, as you're indicating.

If he became Blackened Death, he would have to sound like bands like Angelcorpse or God Dethroned, and that does not have them.

Not necessarily-

Mmm ... well.

I will send this report again for the 3rd time, and I hope you see it. Pyrexia returned to his Brutal Death Metal roots with his latest album.
In step change to the genre as: Brutal Death Metal, Death/Groove Metal

Venom Prison is listed as Death Metal/Hardcore, but they don’t at all play the same style as most the bands in their similar artists tab. Their style is a lot more technical, melodic, and hectic than the raw OSDM influence in Xibalba etc. if anything this spastic, everything and the kitchen sink approach is a lot closer to deathcore, especially the vocals in the style of Suicide Silence and the Black Dahlia Murder. The breakdowns are more complex and busier than true hardcore style breakdowns as well. Should be changed to Death Metal/Deathcore or something similar.

This is another report I sent once, and I hope you see it.

I think it is important that they modify the Chimaira gender in this order:
Nu-Metal (early), Groove Metal/Metalcore (later)

The way they put the Nu is wrong. They put it like they continued to do Nu-Metal, when in reality it's not like that.
The first disc is entirely Nu-Metal, under the line of bands like Korn and Mudvayne.
Then on the 2nd album onwards they changed to Groove Metal with Metalcore. It is not so equal to Lamb Of God to be so exact, but they do it in a more own way. They follow the line of bands very similar to Fear Factory and Trivium. The Nu-Metal no longer appears

Because if they did not add the band to the page, it's because they already knew they were Nu-Metal at the beginning, right?

It's fine as is. This band's genre has been assesed more than once already.

The last album of All That Remains, ''Victim of the New Disease'', has been noticed quite consistent and return to an arduous Metalcore.

It sounds a lot heavier than his album ''Madness'', and I think that Melodic Hard Rock does not feel much anymore. I could tell you that the record returns a little to the roots of Metalcore/MeloDeath that they did before, not so much at all, but it feels at times. Sometimes when listening to the songs (especially track 1), you feel the resemblance to DevilDriver. Meanwhile, the new album feels the same calm parts typical of the current Metalcore, but this time without much prominence, unlike the ''Madness'' and previous work.

You could suggest that they update the genre of the band to:
Metalcore/Melodic Death Metal, Metalcore/Melodic Hard Rock

No need to. It's one album so far and the current genre tag is fitting enough still.

This I think is the 2nd time I send this same report. I hope you see it

Gorguts started as traditional Death Metal in his first 2 albums. I do not understand why that stage is not in its genre, if those 2 albums sound different from the Obscura onwards. It is enough to listen to those discs to notice the difference

They could update their genre as: Death Metal (early), Technical/Avant-garde Death Metal (later)
Death has it with its initial stage of Death Metal, and not why Gorguts do not have it that way

No, that's completely unnecessary.

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."

Also, I don't think Enfold Darkness is "black" at all. They sound like Technical/Melodic Death Metal. I mean, their similar artists tab literally has TBDM, Inferi, Skeletonwitch, and Fallujah as their top four (all over 15 votes)

I had filed a report that had been ignored but regardless, my band is listed as being just Atmospheric Funeral Doom Metal, when it shares more in line with bands like Eintritt and Elysian Blaze than Shape of Despair.

I'd like the genre changed to Atmospheric Black/Epic Funeral Doom Metal as it fits the vocals, which aren't growls, the blasts and the aesthetic of the project better. Also, reviews and the general consensus of my music has been described as being "epic" or "cinematic" in nature. Also, my project is found a lot more in black metal circles than in pure funeral doom ones.

Lastly, what rank do I have to be to edit my own band, as having to fill out report after report is tedious, especially if I'm the artist. Thanks

Multiple mods had agreed on the current tag before the band was approved. There's really not much black metal here aside from the vocals.

What reviews say and what circles your band is found in means absolutely nothing to us. We judge the genre based on the music itself and that alone.

Veteran rank. We don't give out free editing rights to artists because whitewashing is a huge issue we have to deal with (obviously I'm not saying that about you specifically).

and BTW, your report was "ignored" because it didn't follow our rules for wrong genre reports, as those types of reports require the submitter to provide samples like you've done here. Plus, I disagree with your report anyway and think funeral doom is accurate.

Change the Pyrithion genre to Technical/Melodic Death Metal, they have precisely the same sound as Allegaeon in everything:
Pyrithion EP:

And the Allegaeon discography to the comparison:
