I'm trying to insert this band:

https://www.facebook.com/atroposfg?fref=ts

But the system says I can't, 'cause a band with the same name and from the same country has been banned.

Here you can hear the songs: https://soundcloud.com/atropos_it

And here you can se proofs of our physical release:

What should I do?

Atropos are blacklisted because they're not predominantly metal. It's a mix of post-thrash/metalcore, hardcore, and alt hard rock that leans towards the core/rock parts.

Do not agree at all. Moreover, there's plenty of similar bands, or even "less metal" bands. However, I respect your decision, but I hope you revise your way of judging the "level of heavy metal" in a band. We're not in 1986 anymore. Have a nice day :)

1986: Did you hear that new Bon Jovi record, Slippery When Wet?
Holy shit, that's totally Hair Metal.
No way, pretty boys like that don't belong on MA
But man, just listen to those riffs in "Livin' on a Prayer!"

Hello guys, I am here to talk about Euthanasia (Norway).

I knew when I submitted it that it would be tricky. Basically, on their myspace (https://myspace.com/euthanasianorway) you have some songs that were released in 1992. However, thanks to J.Timberlake msasive fuck, the picture of the demo that was there and other potentially relevant information have been deleted from the site. I cannot remember exactly what was the cover like, or if it was on tape (the pic was square, but a band from over the arctic circle releasing a demo in 92 must not have had any other means to release music but by tape). The only info I could find on the web was from radionordkapp (http://www.radionordkapp.no/pressemeldi ... sseID=1222) which talks about the band being active but stupidly enough forgets to talk about the demo.

I could maybe contact the band members, but I would take a while to get an answer. Plus I am stuck in Finland cutting wood for most of the holidays. What do you guys think?

A few day's ago I tried to add the band Ilabrat to the Archives but it was rejected due to 'not being metal'. Can this be clarified a bit more? Also, if it might change opinions; I do have both releases at home so I can upload these for a possibly more expanded review regarding their sound & (sub)genre? : )

If not, I completely understand and respect the discision of course : )

Yeah, if you could contact the members, asking for definite info about the demo's release/distribution, that would be great. As it is, this is far too ambiguous.

The blacklist note says "noise". Did you provide those two releases in their entirety when you submitted the band? If so, then I doubt reposting will make a difference. Though if you insist on a second opinion, you are of course free to do so and I'll check it out.

Well, I had a reject today by my own negligence (I actually forgot to put the text translated into English, please excuse me!)

The translated text:

"Crusher is the name of a mining band formed in early 1986 with influences from '80s bands like Death, Morbid Angel, Devastation ...

At this time I played bass in a band called Witchhammer also mine and mids October I was invited to join the training Crusher as a drummer .

Our demo titled Aberrations (initially Aberrations of Hell) was recorded in early 87 with the formation :

Luciano : Guitar

Leonardo ( Sykes ) : Guitar

Eduardo : Bass and vocals

Arnold : Drums

This training remained unchanged until its end and the members and friends in touch to this day. I met Luciano still in school today's evangelical and follows the business of bodybuilding gyms. Leonardo is in the business of communications and Eduardo is a writer .

After the end of the band, all material stuff (photos, release... ) was lost. In 2001 Leonardo (over 10 years later) in a visit to Rio de Janeiro with the band Chacal, could rescue the demo with a fan from Macaé who met Crusher and still had a copy. Received a copy of the scanned demo and then decided to create the Crusher 's project will be the 2009 version of the demo and will post here step by step in this new version".


Source: http://crusher2009.wordpress.com/2009/0 ... s-project/ (in Portuguese)

I emphasized the part where there is a proof of the distribution of the demo. Since the band members themselves did'nt have anything more about it, and a fan from another state (that they know by accident) sent the demo to them back (so to speak).

I think that answers the two reasons why the band was rejected, and maybe - who knows - it may be accepted.

Thanks in advance and sorry for the inconvenience (and for my bad english too).

I did not add the complete releases, only three SoundCloud-samples / full tracks. If it's all right, I can give you (via a private message) the link to both full albums? I've uploaded them just now on my media-fire account as a single download. : )

I'm curious why the band Æþelruna (Aethelruna) was blacklisted. it was formerly Adalruna. I can understand why it was not accepted previously but it is "more metal" now that the project has been considered (even though it was still metal), seeing as he released a tribute (to burzum) and an EP, and according to the rules; if it is a valid Digital release then it should count. The music is being sold.

The blacklist says: "Ambient with some guitars, but almost no riffs" and I can agree for the EP on bandcamp you linked. The Burzum tribute album isn't a valid release as its a compilation and a cover song, anyway. The digital EP is nowhere close to the length requirement to have the band accepted here (unless it was released physically, but it's still not metal enough).

The "Lindisfarena; Anno Domini DCCXCIII" track is metal enough, but it is also on a compilation with 10 bands. We only allow a max of 6 bands on a split/multiple artist release.

It'll stay blacklisted, for now at least.

http://www.youtube.com/user/Reno78B#p/u

The reason why I requested samples from the demos or the split was because the only thing I could find to listen to were in fact those unreleased songs on their Myspace. They point in the right direction, music-wise, thrash metal/hardcore, but just to be safe I wanted to hear something from an actual physical release by them (which is what counts in the end).

I got a hold of the split and one demo now and I can't say I'm convinced. The stuff on the split is more Hatebreed beatdown stuff and the demo pretty much classic hardcore punk. All in all unacceptable.

The songs at the YouTube link above are being released officially on CD at a concert tonight. Is the band acceptable now, or still no?

Tried to resubmit a band yesterday since they released their debut album said day (and it was rejected when I tried to submit it before a release some months ago, that was entirely my mistake). However, when I submitted it yesterday, adding both a link to their FB-page where they announced their album as available, and linking to an image of the physical product, I get this message: "I don't get why you submitted this again if they haven't released anything. Read the rules. They are blacklisted for now."

I guess there was made a mistake when it got rejected, but since they apperantly got "blacklisted" I did not feel like trying to contribute and resubmit it once again. I will give the necessary information on more time, like I just did:
Band-name: Vakslen (consists of members of Blodsgard and Morgh)
Official FB: profile with announcement of album release: https://www.facebook.com/Vakslen
Offical message they posted about the album: "Our debut album "Crucifucked" is now available. Contact either V or me to get a hold of a copy. 14 tracks of rotten black'n'roll."
Pictures of a bunch of physical albums: https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/ ... 1069_n.jpg
Some tracks are also availabe at their official SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/vakslen

So, to meet the criteria: It is already released. It is available as physical album (not digital at the moment), and it has been proven. I do not see how my attempt to contribute to Metal-Archives would end up getting a band blacklisted... That was of course, never my intent.

^Well, you didn't change anything in your submission, simply resubmitted the old draft. There wasn't even a link to Facebook, I can't blame the mod for viewing it as a blind resubmission for an unacceptable band (yep, those happen regularly). Yes, there's a link to Facebook in the Youtube link description, but the album release could have been made more apparent. The post you made here is a perfect example of what you should have included in the submission. ;)

You can resubmit.

EDIT: Oh, you filed a report for the album release. Sorry about that then.

Thank you.

I misunderstood the techinical interface here at MA. I pressed "resubmit" too fast, and added all the info I presented in my post here as a report instead. I thought that was how it was done - and didn't know I could update the last submission. So the info was there, if anyone bothered to read the reports ( ;) ), but I understand that was not the way to do it.

EDIT: Just saw your edit. No problem.

Oh, nothing wrong with doing it that way if you submitted too hastily, really. The rejecting mod simply missed the report and I couldn't see it right now when I checked the rejected draft (reports don't show up for deleted or rejected bands).

Totally right - I rejected it because the submission looked the same without the proof - but you're right, I completely missed that there was a report on it. My bad on that one.

Hello,

When submitting older obscure metal bands, is there an email address I should send audio samples to? In some cases, bands I'd like to submit don't have any online presence at all (no reviews from old magazines, no previously uploaded audio files, no website of any kind, etc.). I come across this scenario with old bands from my area. If I upload an image of the physical release/cover and also send audio files, can these bands be accepted? If needed, would uploading audio to YouTube in advance work for this?

Thank you.
John

Ideally, upload them to dropbox or somewhere that you can provide a link in the submission notes so whichever staffer gets to the submission can see them. If that's not possible for you, then I suppose you could email them to me at my username(at)metal-archives.com and mention in the submission notes that you emailed me the audio files and I'll handle it from there. Any way that you can get the audio to us should be fine.

The black list note says Ambient folk with a few metal songs.

And as the definition for metal I used, As I said its a DEFINITION therefore NOT my idea, I copied it on a metal definition site. Anyways, seems like all you mods will always be better than us on everything so its no use arguing with any of you. Yet one thing remains, My initial request is unanswered. why is this band from russia blacklisted? княжая пустынь

Also, why blacklist a band in the first place? Why censor the web anyways?

One that was riddled with errors, at that.

Right, about that. The band was blacklisted in May for being mostly ambient. Which implies that the band may have some metallic influences or songs, but the majority of the band's discography wasn't metallic.

This isn't about censorship. This is about keeping the site focussed on its target demographic. Every band that gets submitted goes tthrough an approval process where a site moderator evaluates the band to ensure it's metallic. When a band is agreed upon to not be metallic, it's blacklisted so another user can't submit it again when there's no point in doing so. :p Make sense?

I've submit the band Jotunheimr with proof of physical existence and link to a song to show their metalness as stated in the rules; however, it was still reject cause "...that link you provided as proof of physical release looks doesn't look real at all". Which can be translated by "I think you forged it and that it doesn't really exist." The problem I have with that is that I already added 343 bands on the site since 2003 and I don't really see why I would start to enter false bands now. Normally, in these kind of website, you gain some kind of trust with the number of entry you have, but apparently, it isn't the case here. The problem with this attitude, is that it is now almost impossible to add old demo bands as the physical release will never look "real at all". As for the particular case of Jotunheimr, it was released in 2011, but as well as I know, they just selled it during show, so the "don't trust even old contributors" policy make them impossible to add as the demo is too cheap (picture here: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/33/35r5.jpg/ ). I always considered this web-site interesting cause of the info on underground bands, so I feel their is something wrong with this policy.
