Why is this band Blacklisted ? They released their first album yesterday and it's some nice Power metal

(their last album as mentioned above)

What do you think ?

Because it's not power metal.

The album was judged as a whole and determined to be modern melodic rock with metal aesthetics (production, backing vocals, artwork...)
And while there may be one or two borderline metal songs, the riffing clearly belongs somewhere else.

[EDIT]: Granted, the first song could pass as melodic power metal, but starting from the third one (The Fairies Dance) onwards it goes in a totally different direction and never makes a return until perhaps, "Animals". With songs such as "Sweet Vendetta" and "Impolite" it's evident that they are as far they could be from Power Metal.
