Why is Today Is the Day Blacklisted?...Their sound, albeit unique, is definitely a fusion of certain metal genres recognized in the archives e.g., Grindcore, Sludge, Avant-garde. The tortured, distorted vocals & riffs & the eerie sampling on an album like Temple of the Morning Star reminds one of Eyehategod & Buzzoven - both included in the archives of course - & I would contend that Today Is the Day is a more extreme metal band than either of these based upon the audacity of their lyrics and the unrelenting aural assault of their delivery...

I literally just closed this thread : viewtopic.php?f=3&t=89185&p=2045159#p2045159

If a band is blacklisted it's because the admins don't think they're metal enough to be here and Today is the Day is more noise rock than anything else.
