It's not that we don't trust you, but the image looks a bit off. All we asked for is a better picture. Currently, it looks like something that was photoshopped. It could have been a picture you just came across by the band and you mistook as real (this happens a lot). We just wanted a better picture of it. Could you take a better picture that's not flat like that one and one with the booklet open?

I've checked the whole album on Bandcamp and it is as you say. Seems reasonable to call this a black metal band using some industrial/ambient, not the other way around. You can resubmit.

Thanks for letting me repost it, that's cool

Just wondering why Grorr has been blacklisted.
https://grorr.bandcamp.com/album/anthill
I typed in the band's name on the submission page, but it told me Grorr had been blacklisted.
Any reason why?
Cause they definitely sound like a metal band to me.

Ok, thanks for the clarification; it sound more legitimate explain like that. The booklet did not open (it's just a recto-verso booklet), but I've add pictures from both sides: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/23/movk.jpg/ http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/30/nhz7.JPG/

Hi, the submission of my band, Dyrnwyn, was rejected a couple of days ago. I learned why and I submitted again the application, this time including the URL where you can pick up the DIGITAL RELEASE of our demo (here it is http://dyrnwyn.bandcamp.com/), as asked in the rejection e-mail. Can you admit my band now? I see that my second requet is still pending. Thanks in advance for the answer! Bye bye

p.s.: our release IS NOT a rough mix, or low quality. Listen to it. It's called DEMO only because it's a DEMOnstration of our first works, but the quality is an EP quality. So I cannot see your point: we have a DIGITAL RELEASE that is PROFESSIONALLY recorded, 20 min length, we have everything you need, and you do not accept us. Quite odd :)

And I'll add the rejection e-mail you sent me:

"A band needs a valid release before they can be accepted to the site - a valid release is one that's either:
Distributed in physical form (CD, CDr, DVD, tape, vinyl, etc)
Digital and available for full download: must also be a finished/final mix (no garage rehearsals or rough mixes), AND long enough (preferably over 20 minutes)
Already released. That is, no upcoming releases!
To prove this, you must include one of the following:
PHYSICAL RELEASES: Include photographic evidence (such as this or this) and upload them to a site like Imgur.com. Optionally, if you don't have access to any of the copies, you can include links to sites like BigCartel or a label's page that's selling them, or officially announced them as available for ordering.
DIGITAL-ONLY RELEASES: Include links to sites like Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, etc, to where the release can be purchased or downloaded."

As you can see, we satisfy the rules. We can PROVE we have a valid release because we included a link to BANDCAMP (you wrote "physical release OR digital-only release", read above). There you can purchase it. And it is long enough (again, you wrote PREFERABLY, not STRICTLY above 20 min, read above) and of high quality, better than most EP. And if you say (now) that you do not accept DEMOS, but only EP (but in our case, there is no difference in quality), than I do not understand why you give us the chance to put "DEMO" when adding a release. If you do not accept DEMOS at all, than you should remove the option for us to elect this kind of release, am I wrong? As you can see, if you do not accept our band as it is, than you fall in a big contradiction!

Thanks in advance, bye

Calm down. It's in the queue and we'll get to it.

Maybe you're unaware, but USING LOTS OF CAPS on the Internet is usually interpreted as SHOUTING, not to mention that your overall tone was VERY DEFENSIVE, hence the moderator telling you to CALM DOWN. ;)

Hoi Gert,

Sorry, but your band was blacklisted in September by Azmodes for being riffless goregrind. Listening to this song, I have to agree with him.

Quote:

Sorry, but if there are death metal influences to be heard in your music, they were nowhere to be found in the tracks you provided. :p Besides that, having death metal influences doesn't automatically register your band as a metal one... Rompeprop were blacklisted for being predominantly non-metallic goregrind, despite having obvious death metal influences on "Hellcock's Pornflakes". The basis of the music needs to be rooted in metal.

Ok thx for your answer! But indeed Dolphins is one of our most hoempa party songs :-) maybe you should try some other ones ;) To bad Rompeprop got blacklisted too it's a great band. But I think it's weird then that band like gutalax, spasm, rectal smegma, ... are in the archives

Those bands have one or more releases that're predominantly metallic... as for Rectal Smegma, nearly every one of their releases is drowning in death metal riffage, so it's a very different case to, say, Rompeprop. :p

That song you linked to sounded a bit more acceptable, though the second half of it was a bit closer to the material that saw the band blacklisted... unless the rest of the full-length is like the first half of that track, I'm afraid your band isn't acceptable goregrind, sorry mate.

You can say we are a mixture of both the other songs have more death metal influences than the Dolphins one. We are preparing new songs at the moment for our next release and have one song ready with a lot of Bolt Thrower influences.
But we have a lot of influences and favorite bands like everyone and you could find them back in our music!

Our moto still is make fun, play alot and make the best out of it :-) So if our music is not Death metal enough then I'll accept your opinion but we still love playing it :-) Maybe in the future you will change your view about it ;)

Hi

my question is not so much why Divine Necromancy was rejected, the mods told me that it was too close to industrial noise (ex http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1T5KIPDwrr8 )

but my question is whether From the Mouth of Madness, the second album by Phantom, would be considered metal and might get accepted ?

here is the demo

Why does it need to be so much rules on the archives?! You visit this site just to find new bands, and when the half metal-scene is not accepted, sites like spirit of metal is much better. And you says that metal is about the riffs, that is bollocks, cause then black and death bands wouldn't get accepted, cause the play termolo-riffs. So please stop with all those narrow-minded rules, cause it makes the site more boring.

You don't get the point. Its like this: black sabbath is the first metal band, also is it real metal, so why is termolo-riffing metal when it need to be black sabbath-riffs to be metal?!!

Do you even know what a "riff" is...? Legit question, because I seriously don't think you do.

A note to non-moderators: Please don't spam this thread.
There are plenty of laughable misunderstandings, but when we have ten posts because of one stupid complaint, it's harder to keep track of the legitimate inquiries in the thread. There are times when some input may be helpful, but most of the time a regular user's post either needs to be confirmed/refuted by a moderator, which just makes it more of a mess.

Why did you make a new account? This one says you're 27 and from Austria, the older one says you're 14 and from Sweden, and these questions are just as dumb as when you made a frognoise or toadcore help thread. If you search this thread, you'll find quite a few comprehensive explanations as to what is and isn't considered metal and why. If you want to use a shitty site like spirit-of-metal that copies information from here (and rarely corrects mistakes) then go ahead. We really don't need complaints from 14 year olds who just discovered grindcore, you're not noting anything that we haven't heard many times before.

Hi
I'd like to appeal a banned band called Exist from the USA.

I picked up their CD at the recent Death To All Tour in Europe to which Max (Vocals/Guitar) is filling in Chuck's position.

The CD 'Sunlight' and their previous EP are both straight up progressive metal, aka Cynic. And for the record I enjoyed both very much ha.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Qlg8HyzFhQ - a song from their album Sunlight

I'd appreciate it if a mod could check them out and consider whether they're metal enough.
In my (irrelevant) opinion they're more metal than some 'metal' bands I listen to.

Thanks

According to my ears it's exactly that. This is definitely not mainly metal music.

What's the official take on the band "Botanist?" They describe themselves as dulcimer/folk black metal, (or rather, it's just one guy) and have some very interesting unique instrumentation, but is the official take, "not quite pure metal enough" or "black metal influenced, but no longer categorizable as black metal?" I'm not lobbying to get the band listed on here or anything, just mildly curious. They are an interesting band either way.

yeah, thanks; thats kind of what I figured...I thought they were interesting when I heard them; definitely distinctive with the black metal-style blastbeats and vocals, but the instrumentation and melody was pretty questionable.

I'd like to argue the decision if you could please indulge me?

Well the band Exivious (http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Exivious/2802) are on Metallum and in my opinion they are even less based in metal than Exist.

Exivious: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfPN0N9rzrk
Instrumental, clean guitars. To me they're straight up jazz fusion.

Exist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Qlg8HyzFhQ
Blastbeats, growling, distorted guitars, chugging riffs. To me at least they are definitely based from Metal and exploring other genres within the Metal format.

But I imagine Exivious have partly earned a place on metallum due to their association with the (formerly metal) band Cynic.

Many other non-metal associations with Cynic have earned a place on Metallum, such as Sean Malones solo album, and his subsequent instrumental prog rock albums Gordian Knot.
http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Sean_Malone/25455
http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Gordian_Knot/1384

But Exist doesn't earn a spot? Even though they are definitely more metal than these bands.

Obviously I respect whatever decision you make but I would appreciate it if you could also consider these points. :)

Thanks

Hey, trying to see if I can appeal a band I submitted called "Dog Drama". They weren't accepted because of non-metalness. While I will agree that their sound is not wholly based in metal, I'd say it competes against the sounds of M.A. approved bands like Ephel Duath, Exivious, and Cynic. Some links to prove this...

http://dogdrama.bandcamp.com/album/dragon - This EP is a little more representative of their metal side, with the songs "Trucks" and "Radar Laho" being the more clear frontrunners in terms of metalness.

http://dogdrama.bandcamp.com/album/soundgraphia - This full length has a varied feel throughout the album, but I'd say "Sultan", "Sicilia", and "Frangistan" prove themselves in the category of metal

Whatever the conclusion that's come to, I won't be pissy about it, because I understand where you're coming from, but I felt their material was metal enough to at least contest that maybe their work needs to be explored a bit more by the listener(s) before making a final decision on their metalness.

I'm trying to add Lungs (sludge/doom/post-metal) from Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, but it looks like that name has been blacklisted. I'm confident in this band's metalness, and Lungs is a pretty common name, so I think it's conceivable that a different band from the U.S. with the same name was blacklisted and not the one I'm trying to submit. Can anyone confirm this? Some of their songs are on their Reverbnation page: http://www.reverbnation.com/lungs.

EDIT: If they were blacklisted for lack of material and not for lack of metalness, I just bought a cassette of theirs last night, so they definitely have a physical release now.

I receive this message in my e-mail and i'm very dissapointed:

Sorry gusthav, Encyclopaedia Metallum was forced to reject your submission for the band Nåströnd (Colombia), for the following reason:

The first link is dead.

If you want to object to this rejection, please do so in the appropriate thread in the Suggestions and Complaints sub-forum. Do not e-mail moderators directly about this.

Sincerely,
- OpsiusCato, Encyclopaedia Metallum


The link isn´t dead, the evidence is in facebook´s Black winter drummer of Nåströnd, maybe is in a private album.

and the link 2, there is a song in soundcloud:

https://soundcloud.com/nebulozaprod/n-s ... nal-flight

Myspace: https://myspace.com/nastrondhellishorde

I just uploaded the flyer picture and CDs in photobucket at this links:

It's very disappointing not being able to put all the information of the bands to which I belong, edit and make corrections to errors because my status "Metal newbie", that's ridiculous and I happened to Futhark and Mysteriis having to apply to a Moderator to correct mistakes that other users with "higher status" have been placed.

As I can not place the name of the members I mention them here:

Sir Black Winter: drums (2002 - present)
Lord Lagash: Guitars (2002 - 2010) (Ex-Lagash)
Vintertyr: vocals (2003) (Ex-Futhark)
Hibernum: vocals (2004 - present) (Ex-Lagash, Dethroned)
Gusthav: Guitars (2009 - present) (Mysteriis, Futhark) - Recording only the song Nocturnal Flight
Infernal Lord Azazel: Guitars - Recording only the song Nocturnal Flight

Guest musicians:
Camilo (Aswell): bass in "Aparittia - Spells of Black Magic"
Álvaro Álvarez (Masacre): Bass in the song "Nocturnal Flight" and accoustic guitasr in "In the Ecstasy of the Crimson Lust"


I hope that with this new evidence presented, the group is admitted.
Thanks

Gusthav

Guitar in Mysteriis, Futhark and Nåströnd

I am appointed by the band Thaer os Valael to submit their band here.

My submition was rejected twice because the mods cannot be convinced that their demo was officially released.
I posted a picture of my own copy of their demo but still they are not accepting that.

I don't know what else to do...Thaer os Valael have 1 official Demo, 1 split that will be available to the audience in the following days and are preparing their first full length album. I don't know what else to do or how I can prove the demo is officialy released. Check their facebook page for photos or whatever.
