Thrash metal is Slayer, Metallica, Exodus, Testament, Sodom...

In each Metus Crucis song You can hear keyboard arrangements, piano parts, pure black metal screaming vocals... You can hear important extra-thrash metal elements

We all know what is THRASH METAL, but if I search a THRASH METAL band, if I listen to Metus Crucis thinking of a thrash metal band, I think "WTF?!? Is this Thrash metal? There is a keyboard!!! And these vocals? Is he Burzum?!?"


Metus Crucis are 60-70% Thrash metal, sure, but I think You have also consider some different definitions to include extra-thrash metal influences in the definition of Metus Crucis' genre, if You don't want to accept my "Melodic black/thrash metal"

Thanks
I hope I'm not too insistent

I just tried to add an entry for Bird of Omen (USA), a side project of Monument of Urns, who have an entry, but was told that the band was blacklisted. Can anybody tell me why this is? Bird of Omen is more melodic and less doomy than Monument of Urns, but it still sounds like metal to me, and to this Aquarius Records reviewer:

http://aquariusrecords.org/bin/search.c ... N%20Eulogy

(note the comparisons to Earth and Skepticism)

There are also two physical releases available, so I'm not sure why this band should have been excluded from MA. I'm not going to worry about this like a dog with a bone, I'm just curious.

Apocynthion (Spain) have a Full-length album (Sidereus Nuncius with Pest Productions), they wouldn´t have to be blacklisted.

Please change their status ASAP.

Sorry, I upped my post because after the answer from the mod Alhadis I thought to explain my opinion in the best way, to explain my position, to give to You all a different point of view to accept or not to accept my request.

I only think that Your definition of the genre for the band Metus Crucis is not complete, and I wanted to explain why.

Hi!
I want to submit Sepulchral Moon from Colombia, but it is blacklisted. They have a 7" split release and play black metal. Why is the band blacklisted?

not a "Why was band X rejected" inquiry per se, but I thought I'd ask here... while browsing the band queue the other day, I noticed someone had submitted John Carpenter (yes, the director) as a metal band... may I ask which (soundtrack) album they based the submission on? (just curious)

Hey guys, was just trying to get Hellborn Death Engines from Canada in and it was rejected; I suspect because the release page wasn't accepting my cover submission for the demo. In any case, the release can be found here:
http://www.reverbnation.com/hellborndeathengines

Let me know if I have to clear up anything else to get the entry done.
Thanks!

It was rejected because there wasn't any kind of release entered and all there is are three songs on ReverbNation. Please see here for what we consider to be a valid release. Are those songs part of a physical demo?

I'm a bit iffy on a band with an upcoming release. I'm not sure if Cleanteeth would fit the bill with their upcoming album, "Pushing Rope". It has a lot of post-metal, experimental elements but there is a solid amount of sludgy, doomy metal mixed in.

Here's a link to some sound samples on Amazon:

The release looks okay, but we're still discussing the actual music. I'll post once that's settled. How many copies of that tape were made/sold?

@Metus Crucis: I agree that this is "blackened", not only vocals-wise. Changed.

The blacklist says it's ambient/drone. Please provide song material from the release for us to listen to, if you disagree.

Blacklist says post-rock/shoegaze. Very borderline blackgaze for sure.

Riffless depressive "black metal", according to the blacklist.

@TheStormIRide: This is what the band queue is for, not this thread. If you're not sure about submitting something, then it might be best not to submit it. If you think it can belong, then submit it and see. Nobody is going to punish you if you get a borderline band rejected.

Dude, as the resident goregrind lover/expert here, I can attest that your band's music isn't considered metallic by the site's guidelines. You may notice Rompeprop, Gut, Satan's Revenge on Mankind, and Cock and Ball Torture are all absent from this site for the same reason as yours is... the music is fuelled by groovy, percussive noise with no real metallic riffage or structure.

Don't worry though, I've plans on launching a sister site to MA for all the ugly genres it refuses to touch, so your band won't be going unnoticed. :p

I tried submitting Wizard Lizard earlier today, and they got rejected. no probs on that, but instead of a reason I got a copy/paste from the rules...

This band was previously rejected 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.


so, why did they get rejected? they have a digital release (that the band consider an album), out today, roughly 20 mins, and the bancamp link was in the submission notes... what am I missing? :???:

"digital-only (at least as far as i know), poorly produced and instrumental, but deemed an "album" by the band(?)"

You have your explanation here.

Also "Raw Unidentified Metal" :annoyed:

so why didn't I get a "rejected for having low production values and no singer" instead of the copy/paste?

as for the "Raw Unidentified Metal", I was sinply being honest. I'm not big on genres and categorization... sorries

Because the moderator forgot or didn't want to write something more specific because it's already included in the rules that he linked you.

@aloof: That message covers your case pretty well, as it really isn't a valid release by our standards, it's both too raw/unprofessional and too short for a full-length. Also, your submission itself didn't look serious enough, not only because of the genre, but also because you didn't even bother to add a release to the discography. So why should I waste more time for rejection message than you wasted for your submission? As you are not a newbie, next time you'll lose points for shitty submission like this.

Why was the band Mourning Hours blacklisted? The new album was released today through Three Rooks Records. (digitally and physically)

Hey
My recent submission for 'Osiah' http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Osiah/3540370774
was rejected due to the bandcamp release no longer being downloadable.

I was unaware the bandcamp had stopped allowing free downloads but apparently the amount of free downloads had expired and a mediafire link is now available as an alternative.

http://www.facebook.com/osiahuk/posts/514802558601602

so, you're saying you would have "wasted" more time to copy/paste just the one or two lines from the rules that pertain to this rejection/submission, than the whole "the truth is in there somewhere" thing? I guess you're alone in that logic.

I didn't add the release because it was clearly listed in the bandcamp link, and I thought someone else could get some points for adding it if the band was accepted.

I'm not in the point-counting business myself, so feel free to remove points from me if you want, since questioning a mod's logic is apparently a bannable offence. don't threaten me with it, though, as I'm not a child.

thanks for your reply anyway.

Are you special or something? Nobody is copy/pasting anything, there are standard preset messages, from which the mod chooses one when rejecting the submission. Your submission fell into the "no valid release" category, so there was no need for any additional explanation. Also, you either didn't bother to read the rules about the valid releases, or simply ignored them when you wrote "poorly produced and instrumental, but deemed an "album" by the band" (by the way, where did you get that it's deemed an album by the band? Bandcamp treats everything as an "album"). It's up to submitter to fill as much fields as possible, including discography, lineup, and links. And you didn't add any of these, the bandcamp link was in submission notes, not in the "Related links" section, so no one would see it after the band is accepted.

aloof, the problem with the submission is simply that it was another one of those Bandcamp-trawling perhaps-this-is-just-about-enough attempts. Silly genre aside, not a lot of effort and (seemingly) thought was put into it and the release itself looks rather unacceptable, maybe okay and oscillating a nanometer above and beneath of what is acceptable, if you catch my drift.

I've made a rather huge post about this particular issue earlier this year. What it boils down to is that the digital full-length guideline is there for a reason. Stop constantly testing the lower bounds of the digital release rule with barely acceptable is-it-a-demo-or-is-it-a-shitty-EP releases.

Please.

Voidcrawler were rejected because it is "not a metal band". While I will be the first to admit that the opening track on our demo is more dark ambient, there are three tracks that to my ear are definitely raw and atmospheric black metal. The follow up 4 song ep that is currently a digital download are black metal, with the exception of a drone/noise track.

The band is working on a full length release which may do more to convince you.
Presently Voidcrawler's five song demo is being distributed by Fragile Branch.

When the latest full-length is complete, I would welcome the chance to submit Voidcrawler for a second review. It seems to me as though the demo, with it's somewhat lengthy opening track, may not have been given a thorough listen.
Thank you.

The release looks okay, but we're still discussing the actual music. I'll post once that's settled. How many copies of that tape were made/sold?




Thanks for the answer.
I thought you forgot about it.
10 copies were made and sold.

I have listened to both releases. It's not predominantly metal.

Feel free to post samples from the full-length here, once it is out.

Hey guys, was just trying to get Hellborn Death Engines from Canada in and it was rejected; I suspect because the release page wasn't accepting my cover submission for the demo. In any case, the release can be found here:
http://www.reverbnation.com/hellborndeathengines

Let me know if I have to clear up anything else to get the entry done.
Thanks!

It was rejected because there wasn't any kind of release entered and all there is are three songs on ReverbNation. Please see here for what we consider to be a valid release. Are those songs part of a physical demo?


Yeah! It's a three song demo that we just give away at shows at stuff. The cover can be found on that reverbnation page as well. I tried modifying it for the submission page and it was giving me non-stop guff.

About Demented Assault, I meet the guitarist recently at a court house, didn't get his contact info but I did ask if they had physical demos and he said yes they sold them at shows and I asked him if I could buy one he said that he didn't have any more but if I really wanted it to go to Purevolume for it that one of the demos was up for download. I should have asked how many they made/sold, but I do know they distributed their demos at live shows. They have been broken up for a few years now so I don't think they are still selling the demos or else I would offer a better scan of the demo.

I just found that Zirt is not in the metal archives and then I saw in the forum that it's blacklistened...I wonder why, it's mostly traditional depressive/atmospheric black metal:

Good metal riff, distorsion and atmospheric stuff is all that I hear, sounds similar to other similar bands that are in the archives.

I hope you can ask my question, thanks a lot ;)
