Hey i did what i was told to do,a CD cover and a good quality picture.
If this is shit,ok,when i'll have more money i will put again.


Come on... You made this CD ONLY to get accepted here. You tell it yourself: "i did what i was told to do". The photo is showing a unique copy of your demo. It means it's not sold, not given out... This is in no way a release according to us.
Once again, people who quickly make a CD-R of their demo only to get on here will hardly see their band accepted.

hi.

I added Thimblesnip (Austria)earlier today and got rejected. because:

"Either there is a lack of information, or this band has no apparent discography. Please see rule #7. If this band has indeed released anything and you can show us proof, you can resubmit it again."

Is it a proof that i played in the band and we sold about 200 copies of the CD, that we recorded and copied by ourselfs in 2003? You can listen to some of the songs on myspace: http://www.myspace.com/thimblesnip

Is this proof enough?

if your band is metal, include a photography of your releases into the submission to the MA. You have to give to the moderators something that enables them to see that you have a release out.

Hey, once again I tried to add a band to the Archives, that was rejected. This time, it was the band Profan. Is this band not metal enough as well? It seems pretty metal, doomy, drony stuff...

http://www.myspace.com/profanmusic
This noise has absolutely nothing to do with doom or any other metal.
Drony stuff equals non-metal in 99% cases.

Profan is no longer Black or Death Metal. It may have Rock/Metal components, but in its core the living essence is mainly made of slow-driven raw sound. Taking some influences of Doom, Drone, Noise or free improvisation, some rehearsals take place, in which some recordings are done. Some are or will be available for free through the Internet, some will be edited in low price items in underground labels.
Influences:
Merzbow vs Celtic Frost vs Frank Zappa vs Black Sabbath vs Tom Waits vs Throbbing Gristle vs Darkthrone

Merzbow are pretty metal? Throbbinng Gristle are pretty metal? Frank Zappa is pretty metal? And so on..

Ok, so "this (actual) noise" has nothing to do with metal. But in their beggining they were black/death. But, can't a band be added to the archives considering their past? How many bands are in the archives, that have changed their sound from death to rock, for example?

The band must have at least one album in metal style. This band started with the noise style already in 2004.

I don't get this! A band Like "Complete Failure" that is Grindcore...with some experimental stuff (I may had...but cleverly hidden) and then Today is The Day isn't on Metal-Archives ???

I mean I know they aren't 100% metal, but they have strong Grindcore Elements - Kiss the Pig (more recently) even on the album "Temple of The Mourning Star" had some elements that bands like Amesoeurs (not the best example) have!

I understand that some lines must be crossed to avoid total Caos. But Honestly I think a band like Today is The Day should be on Metal Archives.

I know most people will say "meeehhhh" because they have Hardcore Elements......but if Grindcore bands are in here.....Today is The Day should be here too.......Kiss The Pig is a Grindcore album to me....scratching noise.

PS: Regarding the discussion above......Complete Failure have only one album and it is Grindcore.....(and I love it! and I'm not into Grindcore....they just do it in a way that I adore)

The presence of bands you may find surprising or less worthy plays no hand in acceptance of other bands. It's a matter of individual evaluation, not "if band X is metal enough then band Y is too." That said, you're far from the first person to bring up Today is the Day, and unless they release a clearly metal album (unlikely), they won't be accepted.

(tl;dr not a metal band)

Today is the Day were discussed countless times, and still found more experimtal hc/grind than metal.

As for grindcore, read the rules. It is acceptable, only if it is close to death metal or, in some cases, thrash metal.

Grindcore itself in its pure form is a hardcore punk derived style, not a metal one.


Death/Grind- o.k., others -not o.k.

Well I'm not saying you are wrong.......but had seen both bands live on Tuesday... I didn't find them that much diferent (Today is the Day and Complete Failure....since they are from the Steve Austin Label (Supernova Records) the influences are there).

Just have a listen to "Kiss the Pig" and Complete Failure(they are on the archives for this matter).....

And I found Complete failure to have hardcore punk derived style grindcore.....

But I won't die if TiTD isn't on here... Just found it be incoerent.

PS: Don't Remove Complete Failure, it would be bad just because in my mind I find them similar. I won't argue anymore on this subject thought...just have a listen to it!

Sorry Demenekan, Encyclopaedia Metallum was forced to reject your submission for the band Darker Grounds (Finland), for the following reason:

The band you have submitted is already present in the database. To avoid a duplicate entry, we had to delete your submission. We apologize for the inconvenience, however next time please make sure that the band is absent from the database before submitting it. Thank you for your comprehension. __Only minor name modification.__

--------

This has never really occuared to me. Where does one draw the line? Diablo Brothers was added recently (former name of Diablo (Fin)). When The Empire Falls was added (formerly Empire Falls).

EDIT: Not a mention Covenant/The Kovenant.

When the change in name is complete, then a new page is made. Otherwise there are no written rules, but in cases of sole name modifications, there is no reason to make a separate page. It was explained here countless time.

There is no definitive solution applicable on all cases.
Simply submit such bands only when they completely change their name.

The Kovenent have also modified their musical style, so in that case, two pages are good solution.

I'm failing to understand why my submission for the band Night's Watch was rejected. The discography listed (the Antediluvian demo) does indeed exist, it has been sold at shows and whatnot. It was self-produced and independently released, but bands with only a demo release appear on metal-archives (such as Sacrosanct (US). The songs are all up at myspace and can be heard at www.myspace.com/nightswatchband.

This might very well be but did you prove it? If you gave only their MySpace page I can understand why it was rejected. If you own this demo you can for instance upload a photography of it.

A) Though I know about the grindcore rule, their newest album The Resisting Dreamer is no where near grindcore. It's sludge, almost like one of Pelican's album.
B) Even if it was just based on grindcore material, Tusk is a sideproject of Pelican, and thus should still be submitted.

Speaking of this, Electro Hippies were also rejected. Yes they have a strong crust/grind sound, but very heavily rooted in thrash; crossover for the most part. The guitarist was also in Metal Duck and other crossover bands, though this was the only to utilize blastbeats. If the album wasn't thrashy enough I have some more material that could be acceptable.

As for my 2 cents on drone, I think that it's metal more often than not, but a very thin line. Just as how this supposed 3rd wave of black metal frequently crosses over into more experimental music, such as noise, ambient, etc., such as the entire AWP catalogue for example, so does drone. But the difference between noise/ambient is the guitar playing riffs instead of just atmospheric shit. Earth for example actually plays riffs, while Diagnose: Lebensgefahr or shittier Sunn O))) just use it as another piece of ambience.

Does it matter how far the guitar is prominent though? As long as the riffs are metal, despite how slow and fucked up, does it matter if it's far buried under bass vibrations?

Provide samples for Electro Hippies.

As for drone, it does matter. Being slow is not such a problem, but creating a psychedelic noise is. Those feedback orgies have nothing to do with metal. Riffs buried under bass vibrations are logically hardly metal.

ELECTRO HIPPIES always were a punk band.Its easy to notice by listening samples on MySpace yes,EH have that early Grindcore feeling but its punkish.

Why was Dehuman rejected? I submitted every bit of info the release has except for a scan of the front cover.

EDIT: I left the scan for later as I thought seems how the members are fairly well respected in Australia, being from Psychrist and Infinitum, you would trust my submission. There is only small amounts of info about them as they split up roughly a year after the recording. The Infinitum bio on their personal web page states the existence if you need something like that.

I own the release which is definitely death metal. I've never submitted a band before and only did this for your benefit and the users here. I don't need the info, I've got the release. Just trying to help get the Encylopeadia to be more complete.

Thanks for reading.

So I wasted my time trying to help.

One question, if I scan it, does that mean I need to host the pic?

Also please re-read above post from me.

At first, I thought you were talking about the Dehuman from Belgium.

How good or respected the bands are does not matter at all.

You have to include the hosted picture in your submission, that is important. If you have a digital camera, you can take a picture like this one:
http://i18.ebayimg.com/01/i/000/f6/89/d1d9_1.JPG
It's better than a scan.
And a sample to prove the band's metalness is a plus, but maybe not mandatory is this case.

There are plenty of releases on the archives with no picture of them. For example http://www.metal-archives.com/release.php?id=73837 Not to mention it doesn't even mentioned the times.
I've read the rules about 15 times.
Also if it is so important why is it not marked in italics as a mandatory thing?
A little confusing as it seems lieghway is given in some circumstances. If anyone actually bothered checking the Infinitum bio you would get extra validation. http://www.infinitum.us/main.php?p=biography
Also, there are bands on here with such minimal info I'm boggled that you don't trust my submission.
Just a side note that I've witnessed them live also.

I will scan the pic later but I'm upset at the lack of trust. It doesn't benefit me in anyway to have them included.

I don't like the idea of having to upload samples of a limited release promo that I'm sure is not circulating on the net, which is a good thing if you ask me. So is there still a point in scanning the pic? I'm not uploading samples.

Yes, of course. But in your case the band is very obscure and they are very few infos on the net. So, it's up to you to show us sufficient proof.
You could also give us a link a distro that carries the release. Or if the band's MySpace page states "Demo available for $5" it's enough.

The band must have already possess a physical release.

This is written on the band submission page and you have to prove it of course.

Dehuman was originally formed in around '93. Although they never recorded a complete album, they gained a similar reputation to Psychrist, and the two bands played together frequently.

Where does it say that Dehuman released something physically?

Don't take example on other entries. Just stick with your own.

This wouldn't be requested anyway. But if a member upload an obscure demo/track it will stay between the submitter and the mod. It won't go anywhere else. To make it 100% private, you could send a pm to a mod with the link.

It wasn't me who rejected the band. I just answered you in order to help you so that next time your submission can be validated. We have to do all this. If not, we can expect a flood of worthless entries.

Ok fine, but firstly, the promo was available in 2000. Limited to 100 copies, how long do you think that lasted in availability, 1 to two years tops. It's not available anymore unless you can get a trade or maybe find it on ebay.
Myspace didn't exist back then. I remember they had some samples on MP3.com years back but I had trouble finding them.
I fail to see how a cover proves it's validity. Really, anyone could just bullshit a cover.

And yes I should stick to my submission but Abortium is pissing me off. I tried to get rid of them a while back and failed, now I can't get a band (that's definitely real) on here when I submitted more info than they have.

Yeah it doesn't state they have a physical release but that isn't a dehuman bio. I have the release, I'm not dreaming it and it's not make believe metal.

Do I have to re-submit or is the info stored and I can just provide the scan here?

Anyway, thanks.

The MySpace and distro things were just taken as an example for the nowadays average metal bands. I know it's not the case of Dehuman.
A cover does NOT prove a release's validity. But the following does:

Yes, you can show it here and then resubmit the band with the infos you had put the first time.

Thanks for accepting the submission.

Just one thing I fucked up and the times aren't there for the tracks.
How do I add the times? Sorry for all the questions.

Nevermind, I figured it out.

Why was Coctopus rejected ??

Their not that Metal but they are heavy enough to be on the archives, maybe some will reconsider them. This band has a clear Thin Lizzy/Motorhead vibe and the overall sound in my opinion is very close to Metal.

Listen to Song One & Mercenary..

Because they were not deemed being metal enough, as simple as that. No need to bring them up again, the decision has already been taken with the rejection.

First of all.. I was expecting a response from one of the moderators and not you.. and clearly one of them did response and thats it!!. Secondly, I'm not bringing it up again, I was just trying to know what was reason behind the rejection. If they think that they dont belong here, so be it.. I have no problem with that.
But dont act like a fuckin judge..

I'm not trying to piss anyone off..
"Not metal.. doesnt belong" that was the reason for the rejection I recieved in the mail, I posted a simple question.. after all thats why this thread was created in the first place.. and I was answered.

You needed to ask this question even after you said yourself that they weren't that metal?

Here are some Electro Hippies samples, showing their thrash side.
