Ask here. Industrial metal is an iffy genre, read the submission guidelines.

We do not consider them metal enough. They are blacklisted , they sound too much like Rammstein and similar industrial bands.

Read the guidelines.

Arguing with "industrial metal" will not help you, since the definition of it is unclear and often includes completely non-metal bands.

A band has to be more metal than industrial, should belong to some valid metal subgenre and have only industrial influences.
