Why a band MZ.412 is not listed on Metal Archives? They play Industrial/Noise, but "Burning The Temple Of God" has some Black Metal parts. Lord Nordvargr also plays in some metal bands like Naer Mataron, Forgotten Tomb etc. There deserve much more to be listed on this site than many other Industrial or Dark Ambient bands.

This site is called: The Metal Archives. METAL ... not Dark Ambient Archives. Not Noise Archives.

The DA or N bands that are listed here, are side-projects and this does not mean that every non-metal act can be submitted.........................

While MZ.412 is excellent, Burning the Temple of God does not have enough black metal in it to get a spot on here.

In short, no.

It's because the people who run and moderate this website are anal-retentive nerds with wack ideas about categorising artists. They class Streetkunt as 'Black/Thrash Metal with Hardcore Influences', for example. If that band was considered D-beat/hardcore punk (which it is), it probably wouldn't have been given a spot either.

Sigh...

Use this thread if you want the band deleted and provide samples:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=65721

Also don't resurrect dead threads.

I checked that band and you're correct. It's now been deleted. No need to be an ass about this, just bring it up in the cleansing thread next time. I always have to laugh at "the mods are on a powertrip and don't know shit... look at *ultra-obscure no-name band* being listed... unbelievable!" types of posts. Like we'll ever going to achieve 100% consistency for ANYONE with almost 100,000 bands and hundreds of new submissions each month... How about instead of being a bitch about every single detail in ancient threads, you bring said details to our attention in a civil manner so we can discuss it and deal with it?
