I came across a band called Seker which has been blacklisted. Just curious to know the reason behind that.
I listened to a couple of a tracks and they sound straight up tech-death. There are some deathcore leanings but I feel it's hardly anything pronounced. Can this be re-evaluated? If a mod can give the green signal, then I'll submit the band. Thanks.

Blacklist reason was too -core. And it was just blacklisted a few months ago.


Figured as much. I don't quite agree though because they sound like maybe a mash up of latter day Faceless and bands like Son of Aurelius. Anyway, it's cool. Thanks man.

I am wondering why "Sepultura - The Best Of" compilation was deleted from the discography?

Check this thread, if you haven't already: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=101735 These inquiries should also be made there. This thread is for bands.

Regarding this specific release, the additional notes said it wasn't band-sanctioned. The discography on their official site also doesn't list it and it appears to be quite detailed otherwise.

@Bloodshot: Being heavy as hell doesn't always mean it's metal. There is zero thrash or death in this. If you're hearing such influences, then our definitions of the terms are light years apart. If anything, this might fly as groove metal sometimes, but as I said, it goes more in a metal-riff-less tough guy groove rock/nu-metal direction.

@Gruntruck: I'll check and report back.

@Exegutor: Pretty crusty/grindy, I agree with the blacklisting.

@Seker: We're currently discussing the band. Couple of mods (including me) think they're okay. I'll post the final decision here once there is one.

That Bloodshot song is awful. The vocalists sounds like he's gargling a bucket of horse shit while he sings.

i`m trying to add my band but i got rejected bec. as you said .. the band must have a valid release
we made our band by self efforts and we recorded our first EP and working on a Full length
i posted a download link at (4shared.com) when submitting the band for the digital record .. from this link you can download our tracks worldwide .. and we are streaming the tracks on youtube .. but now we can`t afford to sell our music at a fancy website like amazon or i tunes . i think you can consider 4shared.com as an official website where you can download our music .. correct me if i`m wrong please

The physical tape hadn't been out yet so they were deleted again. Now the tape is released.

Right, I forgot about that photo. So how many copies are there? How are they being distributed?

1. The band's only release seems to be a short digital EP, only around 15 minutes in duration (cover songs don't count). Not quite what we consider a valid digital release.

2. I'm not entirely certain here, but 4shared.com seems to require registration in order to download something? At least it does for me. That sort of restriction adds to the fact that the band does not meet our criteria for lengthy and professional digital-only releases with reasonably public availability. If we accept a band based on an instant hosting link posted on Facebook, we expect that said link at least be readily downloadable.

If I'm wrong about 4shared.com, point 1 still remains.

That is wrong because the user uglur accepted the band and saw the pictures of the tapes.

They are sending some cds in a few weeks, I only asked to his facebook account.

A mistake was made, then. Perhaps they were only the first copies the band received, but not for sale yet. I recall a report for the demo saying that while the demo was available digitally, the tapes were not out yet, with no set release date at that time. If you check this FB post from November 22nd it appears the band was waiting to release the tape through a label. There is no mention on their page of tapes being available through any other means before that date.

What does that mean exactly? Copies are available in a few weeks? Or are they sending you some copies? We need some more info about distribution and limitation, considering it appears to be a blank CD-R release.

Yes is a mistake, I dont received any advice (like other times). Witchhammer released the tapes the 14th of november, I used that base not the band page.

Cheers guys,
I'm in Legion of Andromeda and after registering on the website few weeks ago to add my band I've discovered, to my surprise, that the band has been already submitted and then blacklisted: it seems that someone else submitted the band before us and maybe didn't follow the rules...
Can someone please tell me what happened exactly? Thanks in advance!

The label page has a news entry from November 22nd:

22-11-2013 OUT NOW !!! [..] MIDNIGHT PREY'Demotape 2013(limited 66 handsnumbered copies.)

Before that, there's only news about it "coming soon."

Best to wait until you have the copies, post detailed photos of them and also ask the band about how many they made, then post screenshots of the conversation here.

In this interview they talk about their influences http://www.oocities.org/azrielkris/ibloodshot.html . I don't think they have a sound that is in line with traditional Thrash or Death Metal. But I do feel they were influenced to a minor degree. I would agree with you that they have a more Groove Metal sound. One of the influences they talk about is Pantera so that's probably where it comes from. I think they're sound is more like Pantera, Lamb of God, White Zombie, Devildriver, . I don't think they are Nu-Metal at all. When I think of Nu-Metal I think of Korn and Limp Bizkit. To me Bloodshot doesn't fall into this camp.

Just out of curiosity, why is Body Count blacklisted? Despite the fact they have a rapper as the lead singer, their debut is definitely speed metal with a hint of thrash.

The band Graveflowers is blacklisted but they are a black metal band (among the more raw/noisier bm bands, with a lot of atmospheric and post-black metal traits), reminiscent of Lonesummer, Rhinocervs bands, etc

Bandcamp:
http://graveflowers.bandcamp.com/

Facebook:
https://www.facebook.com/graveflowersbm

Featured on clandestine cuts:
http://www.metalstorm.net/pub/article.p ... le_id=1341

Music for Downers label, put out the 'Oleander' CS and is also releasing 'The Hyacinth Garden' CS
http://musicfordowners.com/releases
http://www.discogs.com/Graveflowers-Ole ... se/4330146

Most metal song would probably Nightingale from Oleander. Very noisy, heavy, dsbm.

Bloodshot are just plain awful. They sound just like nu-metal and the vocals are just awful. The rest of their stuff that I heard on their CD baby page does sound like nu-metal. And just because they are influenced by other metal bands doesn't make them instantly be metal. I could sing music like the Wiggles and say I'm influenced by Graveland and Deathspell Omega but that doesn't make me any more metal.

BodomSlayer, while I share your sentiment about this band, please don't mini-mod. Thanks.

As this particular case confirms once again, influences as cited by bands are often just "stuff we like" and not much more. Bloodshot can talk about whatever they please in interviews. They can also call themselves sludge metal or krautrock, for instance. Doesn't make it any more true to my ears (and I can assure you the site's, i.e. rest of the staff). The band is not predominantly metal.

You mean here? Either the post has been removed since then or it can only be seen by his e-friends. No such links were included in your submission anyway, so perhaps uglur discovered something on his own. Perhaps the announcement was premature. Perhaps I'm wrong and the band just worded their post confusingly. Does it really matter? The tape is out now, the band is listed, you haven't lost any points, who cares?

It doesn't say. But the search function yields this.

Blacklist says it's ambient/post-rock/noise. I've checked the album on bandcamp and agree.

I do apologise if I was premature, but I still can't find the post you mention. Could you link directly to it?

uglur said he thinks that the tape might have been up for purchase when he approved them. From the looks of it now, I guess the sale was delayed or something. I have asked the band directly just to clear this up. :) (and for adding the correct release date to the current entry)

No notes on this band to know why but I listened to a few tracks and it's very -core.

BodomSlayer, while I share your sentiment about this band, please don't mini-mod. Thanks.

As this particular case confirms once again, influences as cited by bands are often just "stuff we like" and not much more. Bloodshot can talk about whatever they please in interviews. They can also call themselves sludge metal or krautrock, for instance. Doesn't make it any more true to my ears (and I can assure you the site's, i.e. rest of the staff). The band is not predominantly metal.

It says 14th of November...

You mean here? Either the post has been removed since then or it can only be seen by his e-friends. No such links were included in your submission anyway, so perhaps uglur discovered something on his own. Perhaps the announcement was premature. Perhaps I'm wrong and the band just worded their post confusingly. Does it really matter? The tape is out now, the band is listed, you haven't lost any points, who cares?

Just out of curiosity, why is Body Count blacklisted? Despite the fact they have a rapper as the lead singer, their debut is definitely speed metal with a hint of thrash.

It doesn't say. But the search function yields this.

The band Graveflowers is blacklisted but they are a black metal band (among the more raw/noisier bm bands, with a lot of atmospheric and post-black metal traits), reminiscent of Lonesummer, Rhinocervs bands, etc

Featured on clandestine cuts:

Music for Downers label, put out the 'Oleander' CS and is also releasing 'The Hyacinth Garden' CS

Most metal song would probably Nightingale from Oleander. Very noisy, heavy, dsbm.

Blacklist says it's ambient/post-rock/noise. I've checked the album on bandcamp and agree.


Sorry about that, ha ha. I realized after I posted that it probably came off that way and was not my original intention. Strangely, however, I had thought about putting something along those lines in my original post. That band is just so awful I can't believe they actually have a dedicated fan base. Woof.

Lurid Reign was rejected on the basis that they did not have an official release. Although they do have a random conglomeration of songs on their ReverbNation page, their Bandcamp has an EP entitled An Ode To The Night, and Cold​.​.​.. The rules state that "DIGITAL-ONLY RELEASES: Include links to sites like Bandcamp...where the release can be purchased or downloaded." Their Bandcamp is http://luridreign.bandcamp.com/album/an ... nd-cold-ep. Granted that is is not very long, it is an official release. Thanks.

And there is also something about length of digital release...
Their EP is about 10 minutes. In rules we have 30 minutes for being valid digital release.
Sometimes I accept shorter releases but come on...

Yeah, that release barely scratches 10 minutes. 20 minutes is pretty much the scantest minimum for an acceptable digital release in most cases... Sorry.

Next time contact the label.

So either the band lied to me or they are misinformed about the release date of their own debut demo? I guess everything's possible, but since the label site itself says 22nd now, I suspect that even if copies were available in some small quantities sooner (probably just a premature announcement), the 22nd is now considered the official release date for the physical version. Since the difference is only a few days anyway and evidence for the 14th is nebulous while the 22nd is confirmed by both the label and the band, we'll stick with the latter.

Well, like you yourself wrote in the genre field, this is hard rock. Not metal.

Alright, thanks for the clarification. I'll just wait for something longer to be put out. Thanks

Why Ахерон from Russia is blacklisted?
