The rules for digital albums only apply towards a band's initial acceptance, not the band's output past that point.

Sloth's page has been plagued by digital "singles". Most of their so called singles are far from being qualified as digital albums as the rules request. More weird thing is, if you to their bandcamp and listen to ANY of their singles posted after 2011 (more than 100), you'll see that they are almost exactly the same, some gibberish in the first few seconds, then followed by a low frequency noise of several minutes, accompanied by a shitty cover art of who-knows-where-they-got-online.

They should be purged both for music's sake and the rules' sake.

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=99105 See my post there. If an otherwise acceptable artist chooses to release/distribute music in that way, we document it. Stupid as it may be, we're not the arbiters of discographical propriety (since you say they should be purged "for music's sake").

I didn't notice that thread. OK, I will patiently wait for the rules to change again sometime in the future, so that this one-single-per-day madness (indeed so) could stop, at least in MA.

From the additional notes, the three singles are previews for the 2013 album, possibly posted on soundcloud. See also

Clearly they do not constitute as "singles" as we mean it.

Never released. source: official website: http://www.semilanceata.com/tomhet/
Although someone did get a tape by contacting the band, this cannot be counted as an official release, especially when the official website claims so.
Credit goes the associated report of the album.

Just four tracks each uploaded to mediafire (not even uploaded together!). Here is the facebook link. Does this also count as a digital release? If so, there are a lot of such uploadings, see here, most of them are simply one track. Should I add them to the discography? Someone already did one of them: One track "single" in MA, actually just one song uploaded to reverbnation and 4shared.

There is also a demo 2010, which I could not even trace its origin. Looks pretty illegible to me.

A case I have reported, and which I think someone should take care of because, as it stands with the statements given in earlier report history, it seems - to me - to mislead the reader about what the policy is. Assuming I have got it right of course.

Saviour Machine: Legend part III:II. Disputed by the band, not unlike the way Zero Tolerance is disputed by Chuck's estate. Both sides' statements can be found around the 'net, but it is hard (for me) to see why this should not be a discography entry when Zero Tolerance is (or W.A.S.P.: The Sting for that matter).
And if Metal Archives' stand is reflected on the Massacre Records entry, which considers Saviour Machine to be part of their current roster, then the release should definitely be in.

Def Leppard:

- 1978 Demo is likely bullshit. The page claims it was a real album, but was later bootlegged as the "First Strike" EP in 1985. No evidence exists that it was released in 79, as far as I can find, and we're the only site that even alleges that it was. Made a report here with more detail before I remembered this thread was a thing. Not sure if it can be kept and listed as unofficial with the new multiple versions, but bullshit is bullshit either way.

- 1979 Demo also appears to be bullshit. The only things that come up when searching for it are links for the legitimate Def Leppard EP from January 79, or pirate sites listing the First Strike bootleg as being from 1979. Not even sure it was ever a bootleg, or if someone duped us.

- This "single" is just an interview with the frontman sent to radio stations. Not really something that needs to be here.

- Promo 1992 was a sampler sent to radio stations ahead of one of their forgettable 90s albums.

Metallic has already been cleaned Disregard that, didn't read main post. There is a lengthy edit warning about all of their various "demos" that are in fact bootlegs, including Metal Up Your Ass. However, Metal Up Your Ass is a name ascribed to a few bootleg versions of the No Life 'til Metal release. Would it be acceptable to add Metal Up Your Ass as unofficial versions of that reease then?
