- Dead, but may have painted something for an album, I'm not sure. Could someone confirm?

Seeing some album arts, I wonder this, too. Giger is here because he in fact did artworks for a band (or maybe I should say gave permission / free use to a band). Beksinski I don't think did. His work has been used by tons of bands but most were done before black / death metal bands in particular began to pick up on it, so his work wasn't commissioned by a band.

Does a stage dancer, no matter how long her tenure, really need an artist page?

Hmm. Perhaps in this case including that information in the additional notes would be a better idea, given that she isn't a musical artist.

That said, however, if she does perform a significant amount in the DVD, and is credited by the band as such, then you could argue that she might be an exception. But it's always best to go with a side of caution in cases like these.

Could anyone investigate if Zdzisław Beksiński had ever gave his permission to any bands to use his artwork? He obviously should be removed from all albums released after his death, and I doubt that those few others had his permission either, so probably his artist page should be deleted altogether. Please someone start moving him to the additional notes, I'll delete the page unless someone will provide proofs of valid use of his artwork.

Died in 1963 but contributed lyrics to a 2014 album? Something isn't right here.

One of the tracks on that album uses a poem by him for the lyrics. Seems relevant to me...

They seem to go by this though. Lewis didn't make the writing specifically for the band; they simply used it for lyrics, in which case Lewis should not have his own page.

Another prominent one - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, to be found on Iron Maiden's album Powerslave.
I did an update of the additional notes. Generally, do you prefer having posted solely here or already taken action by removal of the role which flags the artist for deletion ?

If it's an ambiguous case, post here. Otherwise a deletion report works just as well (though you can also post here, doesn't matter).

Pumkiva and Werewolves of Venice. Both hoaxes. It even states on the Godemiche page that WoV is fake.

Check the OP. This is for artist entries, not bands. Please keep it to the thread you created in the S&C, or use this thread in the future.

Necro'd as opposed to making two separate reports. Mention of Acid Bath in the bad cover art thread got me thinking whether or not John Wayne Gacy and Dr. Kevorkian should have their own artist pages. They didn't create those works specifically for Acid Bath (as oppose to being commissioned like, say, H.R. Giger was for Triptykon), and I also don't think Acid Bath paid any fee to either of them for their use. Speculating on the latter, but Gacy was dead by the time the debut came out.

Both deleted. Don't worry about necromancy, as my recent front page post states, this thread is intended precisely for such cases.

Not entirely sure if I'm asking in the right place, but hell; I was just wondering what the consensus is on "artist" listings for studios, groups, organizations, etc.
Choirs and orchestras are fine, right? What about photo-studios and art services? Does it matter if they are one man ventures?

Apologies for the late reply. This is a matter that has not been entirely resolved among the staff, but the latest consensus is that orchestras and choirs are okay for artist entries. Hold off on design firms, recording studios and such in the meantime and only add them to the additional notes. If they are basically entirely run by one person, that should be okay though.

Right. The reason I ask is because I was purging some obvious "non-artists". But now I am down to the "not so obvious non-artists", so just to make absolutely sure; can I delete (move to additional notes) things like i.e. http://www.metal-archives.com/artists/407_Art/539511

We decided that graphic design firms, collectives and similar group entries in that capacity are acceptable to add under "unknown/other". So your example is valid. As is this.

Recording studios are still a no-go, though. That's a bit messier, there might be a separate category for this at some future point (think label pages).

Not that I have any concrete examples right now, but it's bound to come up; what should you do if, i.e., "Art Collective X" consists of "Artist A" and "Artist B", but one or both of the artists already has a separate artist entry in the archives?

Depends how it's credited on the release.

If the album credits only "Art Collective X" than the credit is "Art Collective X."
If the album credits "John Smith" from "Art Collective X" than the credit is "John Smith." You are free to add in the artist notes that he works for "Art Collective X."

When an individual is credited specifically always credit the individual. If the only credit is the firm's name it is accurate to credit the firm as we have no idea if it was an individual or group effort.

Makes sense?

Simple enough, thanks for clearing that up. I suppose there will be a few redundant listings here and there (i.e. "art by John Smith and Art Collective X") but that's hardly the end of the world.
