There's about 700 bands on the archives that are categorized as ambient or dark ambient. Why is then that there is always one mod who says , "Not metal; doesn't belong; ambient".

They are listed here mostly as side projects of metal musicians, which do not have to be metal to be listed here. Some of those bands have also both real metal and electronic releases.


They must have a release on a label with worlwide distribution, which is not your case- you have a release on an indie underground bm label. And ambient is a subgenre of electronic music and never is, never was and never will be metal. Currently there is no chance how to get your band listed here, since it is on the rejected list. It will be reconsidered only in case your future demo will be real black metal one with live guitars. Then it could be accepted, if you offer us samples proving that. Your current demo consist of four soft electronic atmospheric keyboard based songs- to submit something like that as metal takes guts, really...

Read the rules and learn more.

Case closed, please lock.
