I'd like to dispute the genre of Zhrine (death/black metal). While they utilise low growled vocals (along with high screams), as well as more palm-muted guitars and a thicker guitar sound than most black metal, in my estimation the music is strongly black metal at the core, in the same tradition as other Icelandic bands of their scene, like Svartidauði and Carpe Noctem. There is noticeably influence from death metal, but I think it's not enough to warrant their genre label naming 'death' first. I suggest it be changed to merely black metal, or at least it should be black/death metal, though I maintain that it would then still be incorrect.

Guitarist/vocalist in Illusions Dead - death/black metal
Vocalist in Gloaming - vile, crawling death/doom metal

Shouldn't the black metal band Nargaroth also receive the atmospheric tag? It does sound quite atmospheric to me.

Uh, no... Nargaroth is pretty straightforward Black Metal. It sounds quite atmospheric because, y'know, Black Metal IS atmospheric by nature. Atmosperic Black Metal as a genre is different.

Okay, thank you. It's their third album, in particular, that sounded more like atmospheric black to me but I see what you mean.

I want to request having Fallujah's genre changed http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Fallujah/3540255104

Right now it reads "Blackened Deathcore (early), Progressive/Technical Death Metal/Deathcore (later)"

...This feels a little weird and not entirely accurate (not mention messy and excessive). I believe this should all be changed simply to "deathcore (early), atmospheric death metal (later)".
My reasons for this are...

1) I hear absolutely NO "black metal" influence in their deathcore EP, I mean come on... do you? How is this "BLACKENED deathcore"?? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alGc8M43cjA

2) yes their music is somewhat tech/progressive as a whole but this just rides on the backside to what could be called (and I believe what can be better described as...) "atmospheric death metal" as a whole. Synthesizers are present across EXTREMELY layered and reverb vocals layered across tons and tons of layered and melodic instruments, which are all grating down to what the band have even dubbed "atmospheric metal" even on their own Facebook page.


Also after looking across a couple other bands on the archives, it seems that "atmospheric death metal" is indeed a valid genre on here, so why not put Fallujah in it? They fit perfectly with that description.

So why not?

I think that Krigsgrav's last album "Waves of Degradation" (2016) is closer to post-black/shoegaze.
Tags on bandcamp and "info" page on Facebook say the same.

Hello anybody? Almost two weeks passed
