This single should be nuked. When I submitted the band a year ago, they were just about to release the full-length album, and they wanted to promote it on bandcamp, so they uploaded one track. (They had more tracks on a few official Chinese websites at that time.) The bandcamp single was added by another user immediately after the band got accepted. The point is, the single was just for promo online, it's not intended to be a standalone release. Some time later, the band uploaded another track, also from the full-length. Since it wasn't a well-known band, the second "single" got overlooked.

This is not just for one single. The point is, promotional individual tracks from a full-length posted anywhere should not be counted as standalone releases. According to site Rules -> Valid albums only -> complete albums only, "Likewise, we DO NOT consider unfinished/unreleased recordings, samplers or label-only promotional albums to be valid in any context."

Let's discuss about Tricky Beans/Tricky Means and -hopefully- find a permanent solution for this dilemma.

"In 1996 Sonata Arctica was formed in the northern Finland city Kemi. Their first name was Tricky Beans. After some line-up changes in 1997, they changed their name to Tricky Means. In 1999 the band recorded the new demo “Full Moon” in the Tico Tico Studios in Kemi. (...) This new demo was the first survey for the band in heavy metal waters. Meanwhile Tricky Means changed the name to Sonata Arctica." (source: https://www.facebook.com/sonataarctica/about/)

That's a coincidence with the info available at Wikipedia (https://goo.gl/fFYqXM):

1996-1997 as Tricky Beans, playing Hard Rock (releasing three demos: "Friend 'til the End", "Agre Pamppers" and "PeaceMaker")
1997-1999 as Tricky Means, playing Metal (releasing the "FullMoon" demo)

A third, unnoficial source also shares the same information and includes the cover artwork of most demos: http://heavymetalrarities.com/forum/vie ... 49&t=11917

My suggestion:
• Correct the years to: 1996-1997 (as Tricky Beans), 1997-1999, 1999-present (as Sonata Arctica)
• Nuke the demos and keep "Fullmoon" only.
• Leave the additional notes as they are.
• Let's make a reminder for newbies: Do not add Tricky Beans demos.

This one appears to have been re-released on vinyl, according to the additional notes.

I think that's a 2012 reissue of their 2004 compilation:

https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Ha ... iscography

I believe the bottom two releases should be removed or at least listed as splits. There's a distinction between Halford/Rob Halford, the band, and Rob Halford, the artist. Both the compilation and the boxed set feature material from Halford, Fight, and Two, and it makes no sense to have the material listed under Halford. The releases are meant to highlight the artist's career, not sell Fight's material as Halford's.

How are those releases any different from live albums where Rob sings, say, a Priest or a Fight song? Every which way. Whatever Rob performs live with Halford is a cover and it does belong on the band's page; however, material played by Fight doesn't belong on Halford's page.

Zephyra - Fånge i Frihet (single, 2019)
Zephyra - Dreams Denied (single, 2019)
Zephyra - Nothing Else Matters (single, 2019)

These entries all seem to be based on the official videos that the band uploaded to YouTube in support of the album on which the tracks are featured. Contrary to their 2017 single The Darkest Black I cannot find any cover art, download option, news update or 'merch & media section' that implies these three music videos should be considered as digitally released singles.

Eridan - Вълшебен Свят (single, 2019)
Eridan - Грешна Душа (single, 2019)

Both entries seem to be based on the official videos that the band uploaded to YouTube as teasers for an upcoming album. The release dates in the entries correspond to the upload dates and there is no evidence anywhere on the band's pages/profiles that indicates there is an actual release that meets the MA guidelines. The 'cover art' that was uploaded for the second single is just a band photo that the band used for both video uploads (as can be verified here, the Eridan YouTube channel).

EDIT:

Found two more.

Brutal Thin - A Muerte (single, 2019)
Brutal Thin - Pata Negra (single, 2019)

Same story as before: official YouTube uploads of tracks taken from an upcoming album, but without cover art, entry on their Bandcamp as a downloadable release or anything of the kind. And as before, the release dates are merely the dates when the tracks were uploaded to YouTube by the band.

Could I please have someone clean up my band's discography?
I added a lot of stuff when I was younger but we obviously never publicly released half of what's on here.
I really wish I could clean this up myself but if someone could do this, that'd be AMAZING!
Thank you :D

There's a problem with the discography of Stone Vengeance, whereby two separate album releases register as the same. However, the later version is also listed under "Other versions", which means it's been replicated somehow. There is also the same review for both albums. These are the links to the respective releases:

That seems to be one of those cases where it's technically a re-release, but different enough to make it appear as a separate entry in the discography without loosing the connection between the two.
