Per my request, HellBlazer kindly gave us a way to search for all artists with standalone band links in their bio/trivia using the {id#} syntax. The reasoning for the existence of these vary. In many instances they are failed attempts at "merging" two artist pages, where user ignorance is the main culprit. Some users like to dump their own band links all over artist pages. This is self-promotional spamming and should of course be removed and the user warned in repeat cases. And finally, particularly clueless users fail to realize there is a "Past bands" tab in clear sight on the artist page. They proceed to add band links for all of these "missing" acts, cluttering up the artist bio/trivia section.

The list: http://www.metal-archives.com/todo/arti ... rnal-links

I'll tackle some of those later today.

EDIT: 86 artists remaining. Those'll take more time. Too little info.

What about stuff like http://www.metal-archives.com/artists/Y ... Avi/128470? Literally just a sentence biography telling us something we can see from the band tab. Can stuff like that be deleted?

there are only 12 active metal musicians in Finland, and those 3239 bands are just different combinations of those 12 musicians.
