So, I would like some clarification about what is Metal and what is not for Metal Archive simply because it fills me to spend my time to propose rejected bands.

Examples:

For Metal archive these bands are metal:

Netra (trip hop Ambient rock) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4I1UqYQiTI
Life's Decay (Darkwave/Neo classical) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAKwbHKH2ZM
Wardruna (Folk/Ambient) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6w5ustEfT90

And these bands are not metal:

A World Once Silent (metalcore) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crH8JUkkHy4
Hopeless (Depressive Black Metal) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwnZHyUAqJI
Eths (Deathcore/Nu Metal) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Q4Rr2Hie9c


I agree with any form of classification if it is properly explained because without help I confess I don't get there.

Non-metal side projects of metal musicians are allowed on this site.

Thank you for that clarification, but :

Wardruna : Your definition is indeed correct

Netra: I'm sorry, but Stangala is not Metal at all but Stoner/doom rock (That's why I'm looking for an explanation as well)

And then to life's decay is not a side project at all ... Look their page.

And To be more precise, I would like to know some technical informations, melodic structure, type of instruments, What allows me to know what is metal for Metal archive or not, not why band are not metal because it's a side project, it's not my point.

Life's Decay's page says "Doom Metal/Dark Ambient" so I assume they're metal enough for the Archives. SI tu as des questions, tu peux m'envoyer un message.

Use these threads for your inquiries.
