When adding a band with only one album, and about half the songs are metal, how do I show examples of metalness if there are only 2 videos, one non-metal (the other one is a maybe)? There is a link to download the album though.

Then what's the problem?

In ambiguous cases it's always preferred to have as much of a band's musical output available for review as possible.

Hails Everyone,

I am new and I registered to submit my bm band.

However I am quite unsure if my band has enough material released (only one digital-form EP, 23 mins of material, 4 tracks).

In addition to that, the EP can only be downloaded from a site like this: http://my.rapidshare.com/Nebiros/8000

Will this do, or am I to come back later; when I have more?

I prefer to ask first, instead of submiting and then having problems.

Most likely it'll be rejected since it's less than 30 mins worth of material also it's not really a proper form of distributing it using rapidshare or megaupload cause after a certain period of time those are deleted. it would be more official if you used bandcamp for that but still it's less than 30mins worth of material for a digital release.

wait till you have more material, put it on bandcamp or something similar to that, or have it released on tape or cd.

Ok. Thanks for the info. btw, I do have a bandcamp page: http://mysticrites.bandcamp.com, so I can always do that, but if you say it's not enough material, then I'll do it when I have more of it.

Thanks N.

No problem. and also in the future, if you have it in bandcamp like that just streaming. it's not deemed that you are actually releasing it cause you can't purchase it or download it for free from there nor is there a link on that to anything else. so if that release was 30mins long it still wouldn't have been deemed a valid release.
