Can Leka (Finland) be unblacklisted? The latest EP that was released last October is a lot more Metal than Experimental than his other material.

This thing is kind of a joke (I hope) but seeing that bands like Spinal Tap and Massacration have been added, it'd still be nice to have an official answer about it not being included.

Sounds like a mix of electronic crabcore-style post-hardcore (i.e. Abandon All Ships), modern alternative rock that followed the trend and production of melodic groove metal (i.e. Sonic Syndicate), mallcore like Slipknot, some sort of ridiculous J-rock/J-pop, and crappy melodic groove metal. It's some sort of J-mallcore, not metal.


Next person to bring up Babymetal, in any capacity, even people who have nothing to do with MA and just randomly text me about it or something, will be slapped with an entire country.

Hello,

I couldn't able to add the band Athor (from Turkey) to metal-archieves since they are banned!

Here is the facebook page and youtube channel of the band:

http://www.facebook.com/athorband

http://www.youtube.com/channel/UChbGh3R ... ture=watch


The style of the band should be acceptable for adding to metal-archives. In addition, they have two albums as CD format. Can you please let me know how I will able to add Athor to the site?

Can you provide evidence that those albums exist on CD? Photos of physical copies? Online stores selling them?






I attached the photos of two CDs of the band they recorded in the past.

So, with those CD's, do they proof the band that they will be able to removed from the banned list? Can I add the band to Metal-Archives?

Thanks,

Hi

Some time ago I added my metal band denagersmith which was rejected and I got a message saying it is not metal. I provided links to a full metal album, it is also for sale by reputable online stores like iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay and it's on bandcamp & spotify. I do not want to cause 'headaches' but just inquire why my band was rejected. I can provide links and downloads to the album by deangersmith called 'metal made me do it', deangersmith is also known as Dean Smith who is also listed on this site in past bands - 2 Dogs Funking, Ragnarok, Odyssey. As well as current bands Mouthful of Flies & Brothering.

Please all I need to know is if this band can be reconsidered for submission and if not what is the reason, I understand you are busy and really do not mean to waste time or cause trouble here.

here are some of the bands I have formed listed on this site:
http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Mouthful_of_Flies/43227
http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Odyssey/44657
http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Brothering/113575
http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Ragnarok/3540276056

This is the band I am trying to submit now:

http://deangersmith.bandcamp.com/album/metal-made-me-do-it-2

thank you in advance.

(I don't know if this is the right thread, I didn't want to open a new one for this, or should I?)

There are some mistakes about the Band "VHF", I want to admit.
-> http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/VHF/3540324531

The "Heart Of Stone"-Single and the "1st Impressions"-LP are from a different NWOBHM-band named "VHF" from Essex(?), UK.
So can some moderator delete this information from the VHF which are allready in MA? (link above)

I tried to add the other "VHF" into MA, but it said, that there is allready a "VHF" on the blacklist, maybe it is that band, who released this two recordings. (!?)
(I used the search in the forum but didn't find any result for "VHF"..)

So I don't know why another VHF is on the blacklist, if it is that VHF I wanted to add, and so on..?

A "proof" that they are two different Bands:
http://www.heavymetalrarities.com/forum ... 7&ilimit=v
(scroll down to VHF)
-> http://www.heavymetalrarities.com/forum ... 74&t=10862
-> "Not to be confused with VHF who released the 'Heart of Stone' 7''"

So I don't know what to do, it makes sense that they are two different VHFs.
The VHF from London (link at the beginning) putted out a (first?) demo in 1985.
The other VHF released 5 years earlier a single, and 1982 a full-lenght. So the difference in time and release-format is significant, in my eyes..

I think without more informations about two Bands with the same name from members of the two, or a witness of the time, my thoughts and this discussion are maybe useless, but nevertheless I wanted to report this.

I've updated the existing VHF page. The blacklist note for the presumably different VHF says it's hard rock. Can you provide samples? I can't access the HMR uploads.

I couldn't really put a name on their style, but I'd say it's something between Motörhead, Punk and early Heavy Metal (so I simply named it Heavy Metal, using the term in a very general sense). But I don't see where this is not metal, given that the transition between genres and styles of metal can be very fluent at times. But this is more metal to me than 99% of the Black Metal bands on MA; lol.

Or is Motörhead only included on MA because it is Motörhead?

Music can be listened here. http://www.reverbnation.com/sakhet

Hm, well I see what you mean, it does have that metalpunk vibe, but it's very punkish at that. Not sure I can really disagree with the rejection.

I'm inclined to agree, but will asked Morri first, since she blacklisted it based on the first release.

mkay, about VHF... I found the two tracks from the 7'' single:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KOrXiqZn7I
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ry0HJc0l9gA

Sounds like NWoBHM-y hard rock to me. I don't think it's acceptable.

The full-length "1st Impressions" appears to be by yet another eponymous band from the UK: http://www.systemsofromance.com/blog/20 ... ssions-lp/ It's 80's synthpop.

Morri agrees too, it's just barely acceptable now. Go ahead and submit 'em.

Hm weird, this is pretty obviously heavy metal. It was blacklisted as hard rock, but I don't see any other releases than that metal EP. Well, whatever, you can submit them.

The blacklist note says "electro/loop/sample-ridden bedroom noise with BM squealing and wheezing" and that seems to be exactly what it is. Not metal.

I was about to make a page for Ovid's Withering when I noticed that there was a note at the top saying that they had been blacklisted. The band has a full length release and they are definitely metal. I guess I am just wondering why they are blacklisted.

Blacklist note merely says "-core". I'll give it a listen myself and see if there needs to be any further reevaluation.

EDIT: Well it started off promising, with a very healthy lean to the "metal" side of the equation. But as the album went on it just got more and more djenty, and about halfway through all I could think of was Born of Osiris. They're gonna stay blacklisted for now, but the first couple tracks showed they can definitely stay metal when they want to, so I'll keep my eye out for any future releases (also I just kinda liked it anyway).

I don't think this band is blacklisted but it doesn't appear to be on the site either. I came across Black Uniforms today and think it may be metal enough to be on this site. It's primarily hardcore punk but it definitely has some metal elements. To me, it sounds like speed metal with light touches of heavy metal.

I've only listened to this album here. http://youtu.be/hBgyUuRgR-I

If it's a proper entry, I'd very much like to see it here.

I actually can't believe Plebeian Grandstand was blacklisted, I came across their newest album, Lowgazers and it clearly IS black metal influenced by Deathspell Omega.

They also have a solid discography and are a stable, serious band, kinda unfair they got blacklisted.

You can resubmit.

Since when was it a MUST that you provide sound-clips to get af band submitted?

Quote:
Sorry Snapsen, Encyclopaedia Metallum was forced to reject your submission for the band Miss Behave (Denmark), for the following reason:

Need to provide samples for us to hear if it's metal or not.

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,
- theunrelentingattack, Encyclopaedia Metallum


I provided bandphoto, pictures of their demo-tape, line-up with links to other bands. I have done this in the past with several other bands, and they were accepted without any problems. I do not submit many bands, and I don't care about points etc at all. I just contribute with bands whenever I get hold of something new for my collection that's not registered in here.

From the rules: Second, for the lesser-known bands, we need compelling evidence that the band is metal. We won't just take your word for it, sorry. The best evidence is, of course, in the form of audio samples,

A photo of a tape and linking members is not proof of metalness. Now, Helvede knows the band it seems, so you're taken care of but provide some clear evidence of this in the future.

Samples are not always a must, but they are most definitely the rule rather than the exception. Band image and relations are not always a trustworthy indicator that the band is metal itself. This has been proven to us time and again. For example, there's always alternative rock or older hard rock bands popping up in the "why was band x approved?" thread which I can only assume were accepted based on the look of the band and/or trust in the submitter alone. I'm not saying that we don't have respect and gratitude for our more seasoned contributors, but it's still best to gather as much information as possible before verifying a band. Naturally samples can be difficult to come up with for older and more obscure bands, but that doesn't mean that we won't try to ask for them regardless. No harm in that.

@Plebeian Grandstand: I agree with Alhadis.

I object to a group deviation.
I provided exhaustive information on group and their disk.
Official links to Facebook, My space and others are submitted.
In addition:

Requirements of the moderator about granting a photo of tics it is equivalent to nonsense.

Calm down, we aren't doing any group deviations here.

The moderator clearly told you that you must provide either a proof of physical release or a valid digital release. Online stream is not a valid digital release as per our rules, the album must be fully (officially) downloadable. Just read the rules, the answers to your questions are there.

If you mean what I think you mean... Just because there are no photos or even discography entries doesn't mean that this information wasn't provided when the band was submitted. Evidence in the submission field is not visible to regular users. Also sometimes albums are not added to the discography section but merely mentioned in the notes because the tracklist and/or release date is unknown. You'll be hard pressed to find a band without discography and without some mention of a release in the notes. If you do, post about it here.

Local band Black Crown Initiate is blacklisted for some reason.

They have an EP out and it's progressive death metal.

If they're progressive death metal then Protest the Hero are progressive power metal.

I checked the band myself at the time of their blacklisting and I agree with Zodijackyl's opinion.

Quote:
Spacey, atmospheric prog/post-rock sections contrasted harshly by deathcore breakdowns. Seems like this band is either clean, ambient guitars, or chugga chugga groove breakdowns, not so much metal.

in may 2010 (in the 2nd page)
Special Forces (US) was removed from metal archives
somebody said that they made Hard Rock
i think they play tradition heavy metal like Picture (Holland) for example or Riot (USA)

I'm hearing modern technical death metal interlaced with some atmospheric post-rock. Djenty at times, but it's still the predominantly metal kind of djent instead of the post-hardcore djent of a band like Periphery. Not a trace of deathcore. A deathcore band needs to still have some elements of hardcore in their sound to be a deathcore band, otherwise they would just be a death metal band. More often than not a crappy death metal band but still death metal. Black Crown Initiate is anything but crappy though, in fact I freaking love them. Saw them live many times, so I'm a bit biased here.

I often back down from my opinions especially since I realize later on that I was a bit incorrect (ahem, Protest the Hero), but not in this case. There is no deathcore in Black Crown Initiate. Djent, yes, that's what the more chuggier sections are, but that's still metal.

I can see there's probably no point in further arguing at the moment, they only have a one song EP out at the moment (thought I could have sworn I got an earlier demo from them too sometime in late 2012).

Sorry for bringing them up again after several other people did so. I thought they were on here already, when I saw they were blacklisted I didn't think a band from Reading, PA could generate this much controversy so I posted without doing a search. But I remain steadfast in my opinion that the amount of deathcore in Black Crown Initiate's material thus far released is far less than the ratio of carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere.

Hello

I tried to add a Blackened deathcore group known as 'The Ancient' and a few days after doing so I received this message:

This band has been rejected by the moderators for the following reason:

"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.


I forgot to mention that this band had released an EP called 'The Frozen Path' which can be found on last.fm here http://www.last.fm/music/The+Ancient/The+Frozen+Path

I apologise to the moderators for any inconvenience I have caused

I don't see any download links... is that the only place where the "release" is available? For streaming only? :S

Well, yes. Djent is metal, in the case of Black Crown Initiate. It's just technical post-thrash metal, like later Meshuggah, Coprofago, Four Question Marks.

A lot of bands calling themselves djent these days also mix it with hardcore and such. Black Crown Initiate does mix it with post/prog rock and death metal.
