I still don't think their earlier stuff is simply gothic metal, there should be something else added to the genre.

Can the genre of N.K.V.D. be changed to industrial black metal?

well, if you read my posts you'll see that I agree on them being doom/gothic, we cant be that wrong if theres also 2 reviews supporting us. but the mods have the final word on this, and one of them has already spoken, so let's give up already. good luck

Might I suggest adding a groove/post-thrash field for the genre search?

I think it would be a lot better than mixing all the groove bands in with the thrash ones. There's also enough bands described as groove/post-thrash to where it wouldn't be useless to add another field.

Hellrisen, great, I support this! Also, we should do something with 'Traditional Metal' and make it 'Traditional Heavy Metal'.

Has he really had metal releases? Of what I've heard it's just distorted vocals without any instruments at all.


Check out my (=tinternetboy's) YouTube-channel, and judge for yourself whether or not the music on the APATOR-demos "King Of The Juice" (1996) and "Meet The Meat" (4-2011) is metal or not. Greetings from tinternetboy.

I would say yes, even if it's just for Apator being somewhat of a "key figure" in the Dutch Black Metal "scene" from the late 80's/early 90's.
Would you by any chance know if their are still old Apator demo's for sale or trade floating around somewhere? Preferable the "Guilty of down syndrome" tape.
and is there a possibility that Meet the meat will ever be put on tape?

Vopo's - should add 'Punk' and 'Crossover' to genre field, because first album is punk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvTjN1T31Ok
Second is punk with heavy metal solos (sorry, no link, but currently I'm listening it) and third album is crossover

Blues/Jazz Parody should be added as well, the whole Smoking Songs album is like that.

Deadly Carnage should probably be extended to "Black/Doom Metal/Acoustic":

I have a draft ready of Obrero (Sweden). They themselves would describe their sound as doom/stoner metal, much like Orange Goblin and Electric Wizard, both bands accepted on MA.

I'm waiting for their album to be released this month as scheduled, but it might be delayed.

My question, does it really qualify sound wise? Is it metal enough?

http://www.myspace.com/obreroswe

The songs that are from their debut album "Mortui Vivos Docent" are "The Wolf's Hook" and "Son of Tutankhamun". The other tracks are from their yet to be officially released demo, so don't pay attention to them.

One more thing, members Mathias Öjermark, Martin Missy and Fredrik Lundquist are in other metal bands if that's taken into consideration.

Please, reply with your feedback.

I've listened to the two songs from their debut (and the rest also) and they are on the doomy stoner metal side of things, so musically they're acceptable.

Just wondering, is Dark Metal a legit genre?

Agalloch is listed as one: http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Agalloch/305

If someone were to tell me what's Agalloch's genre, I would say it's Black Metal w/ Post Rock influences.

Ok. I will wait until their debut album is officially released and submit my draft. It should be this month or the next.

I wish you could tell us more about the dark metal genre. I ask cause the word "dark" has been used to describe different kinds of bands with no relation whatsoever. and I hope you wont tell me that the bands set a dark ambience (or are influenced by dark ambient music), which would be also the case of many folk metal, gothic metal, symphonic metal and even industrial metal bands. There are many many things that can be related to the word "dark", from depressive music to the most aggressive one. Plus, sometimes the word "dark" has more to do with the lyrics than the music.

Revocation is labelled as technical death ]/thrash which I would strongly disagree with.

I propose progressive melo-death.

They remind me more of later In Flames than thrash.

It's hard to define. In my part of the world (Northern Europe) the term Dark Metal emerged around mid 90'es and was used to describe a lot of undescribable bands (especially European bands). It was used for bands that didn't really belong in the major genres. I'll have to look in my old magazines again to recall all the bands though. As I remember it was bands that mixed black, doom, (melodic-) death, folk, heavy metal, alternative rock, sometime a bit electronics, progressive rock/metal etc. (not everything present for each band though). Not thrash, grind, groove or anything like that. What made them labelled as Dark Metal was that they didn't really fit any of the genres to a full degree. It had elements of black like the atmosphere and vocals - not the speed or antichristian image, it was doomy, but too midtempo to be doom, too melodic to be death metal, too melodic death metal-like to be heavy metal, folk as an inspiration, lots of progressive etc.

Record Labels were that time's Prophecy Productions, Misanthropy, Avant-Garde etc.
I remember Sentenced (Amok), Beyond Dawn, Primordial (Journey's End), Cryhavoc, Alastis, Paragon of Beauty, late 90's Rotting Christ, Divine Sin, Wings and a lot others described as Dark Metal. None of these bands (as far as I remember) are labelled Dark Metal here, maybe because they have been absorbed by other more established genres.

well, "alternative", "experimental", "eclectic", would fit that bill.

I believe people have used the term "dark metal" in many different ways without an established criteria. By example, I remember people labeling "gothic metal" as "dark metal" just because they have dark and somber atmosphere... just by using the word "dark" it could mean maaaany things. I dont think "dark metal" should be used as a genre.

In the case of MA, I certainly dont see how Crowhead and Agalloch could be dark in the same way.

I don't know, maybe the same similarity between Venom and Xasthur? Besides, I didn't say that everything that has ever been called 'dark metal' is most appropriately described by that moniker. My point is that every now established genre tag was once an incongruent mixed bag. For instance, power metal has been used to describe Metallica, Pantera, Venom, Sonata Arctica, Dragonforce, Manilla Road, Metal Church, among others. But that doesn't make it an invalid subgenre. I believe that, just like viking metal, dark metal has been there for a long time now, and its definition has become clearer and more constrained. IMO it is a useful tag that describes bands that don't fit in any other major subgenre.

Shouldn't Isis' genre really just be changed to Post-Metal? I mean, the "atmospheric sludge" tag is sort of a holdover from a bygone era at this point, before metalheads really connected that style with post-rock.

Why Arcturus are tagged Progressive Metal now? I think they are closer and more affiliated with Avantgarde Metal than Progressive...also Vulture Industries is tagged as Avantgarde/Black Metal...but the black metal elements are too few for a tag in my opinion

Surely Ulcerate are a bit more than straight forward death metal like their genre field would imply.

D:

Ulcerate should already have been tagged "Technical Death Metal"... wasn't aware their genre was still a vanilla "Death Metal".

So...I don't know what you guys wanna do about that, but they start off heavy/groove/thrash sort of stuff, go mallcore, and then do some sort of mix of modern rock/metalcore/even some melodeath riffs.

Pathologist are currently listed as "Death Metal/Grindcore". Considering they're a Carcass clone I think they'd be much better off under the tidy, concise tag of "Goregrind". Agreed?

Brutality Will Prevail are listed as death metal/crossover however I think a more apt description would be hardcore/sludge (this does not however take into account their first three releases, all stuff before Forgotten Soul which were beatdown hardcore)

Loudness http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Loudness/943
They started as Traditional Heavy Metal, yes, but since 1992 they put at least seven full Groove Metal albums, so genre field should be changed. Some songs from their non-traditional albums:

From 'Engine' album, 1999 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtTSg1qDDqI
From 'Spiritual Canoe' album, 2001 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCx0hWLj_ss

Blowin Free http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Blowin_Free/6442
Their second album 'The Knife and the Floosie' is speed metal:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxB14RqhbKo
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuKE6_p_r48
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_J6ocA6rQk
I think it should be changed to 'Traditional Heavy/Speed Metal'
From 'Racing' album, 2004 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMtVu32-qjk

And one question: why it's so unclear classification of 80's heavy metal bands? Some bands playing heavy metal, what the difference between Traditional Metal and Heavy Metal and Traditional Heavy Metal? Some bands tagged as Power/Speed Metal, but they play Heavy Metal.
Why bands like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OK3sBWS_nGw tagged just as Traditional Heavy and bands like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcJUS8YdPBo tagged as Power/Speed? If I want to find power metal bands, I can see Thor from Canada and Arkangel from Venezuela in this category, but I can't find Brainfever though they have more power metal-ish sound...

Could anyone enlighten me on the difference between grindcore and goregrind (not a fan of any)?

Does anyone else think that Altar Of Plague's genre should be something like "Black Metal with Post-Metal influences" or something similar? They definitely don't sound like classic black metal

Goregrind is a subgenre of grindcore, it's a form of grindcore that usually has very downtuned guitars and very low growls, and often comes with splatter movie samples before songs. And it has gore lyrics of course.

This, along with the fact that grindcore is generally faster, as it's a derivative of hardcore punk. Goregrind is mostly thickly produced, mid-paced deathgrind.

Eletronics of some sort. It does belong to the band discography; I have a mail from the band to confirm this.

Thanks for fixing all those genres Witcher.

I did some research and after some work I found Visitant's official myspace page. The production is pretty horrible and it's hard for me to pick out individual elements, but from what I can pick out, the first two tracks sound like Black/Death Metal to me. The other track sounds like an attempt at a folk track. Let me know what you think.

P.S. I also had a question as to whether "Pagan Metal" is a valid genre. I've seen a lot of bands listed as this, but most of them just seem to be Black Metal, Viking Metal, or Folk Metal bands.


Kindly see these two links as well:
