The Crinn (USA) was pre-emptively rejected...would a mod like to double check on this band to confirm if they're metal or not? In my opinion I think they're "metal enough", but what do you guys think?

Hi!

I tried to add a profile for Nerve End (Finland) yesterday. Later I got an email stating the following:

"Sorry etheric, Encyclopaedia Metallum was forced to reject your submission for the band Nerve End (Finland), for the following reason:

Not metal; does not belong."

You can listen to the songs here: http://nerveend.bandcamp.com/

I personally think that this is "metal enough" (I cannot imagine what e.g. the song "chains" is, if not metal...), but of course it is your call. Let me know if the rejection was a mistake.

Thanks!

Yes, the songs have been made available as free MP3s, but there also is a physical release. Here's proof -> http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1339007/Nerve%2 ... %20War.jpg

Stll, too much nu-metal/alternative based - unacceptable.

Recently submitted "In From the Cold", and I was just curious if the reason they were rejected was because there wasn't sufficient evidence that they had a physical release?

You should have received a rejection message. Make sure you have email notification enabled in your profile.

Edit: Just did a quick Google search. If it's the band from Serbia then the music sounds like acceptable sludge/stoner metal to me based on the samples on their MySpace page. As long as you can prove that they have released something physically then there shouldn't be a problem with getting them accepted next time.

I submitted the band "Insense" and it was pre-emptively rejected. Please review this, the band's web page is http://www.insensehq.com/ and yes, they have a release.

Not metal. When a band is blacklisted, it is almost always for that reason.

No, it is the same band, which was rejected for playing nu-metal/alternative stuff. That is the reason and final decision.

I tried to add a Finnish band called Musta turta, however it was rejected because of the rule #7 (must have physical release). The band indeed has one, though I haven't that album nor I know the tracklisting so I couldn't add it to the discography. But I added a note about their demo in the additional notes field and put also three links to the reviews of the record. Aren't review links enough to prove that album has released something? The links are however Finnish, so a non-Finnish moderator of course can not understand the content of the links... But I had added the links in the links section, and the title of the links were like "Review @ reviewplace.com"

Here are the links:
http://desibeli.net/juttu/1377 (Musta turta can be found quite a bottom of the page)
http://www.noise.fi/levyarvostelut/?id=7570
http://www.imperiumi.net/index.php?act=demos&id=1712

The reviews are such proof only when they explicitly state that the album was physically released. As you said, they are in Finnish and I do not know what they say. The official communication language for the page is in English.

Edit: Now I see the third review mentions it. Sorry for that, but you should point out the respective passage from such non-English review in your submission.

Resubmit.

I see. However, Imperiumi reviews only CD demos. And, the review begins with following text:

"Musta turta
Tuhon Airut
CD-R"

On the left side of the grade one star. Try ctrl+F and search "CD-R" if you don't find.

http://www.imperiumi.net/index.php?act=demos&id=1712

EDIT: Allright, I'll remember in future to say in English where the information about physical release is.

Is there a special reason for writing Musta turta instead of Musta Turta?

Would Firebird be a worthy band putting up on the archives? You know, Bill Steer's latest band, or would that not come under the rule of side projects as it's pretty much his main thing now.

Just wondering is all, I know they're signed onto Rise Above which I'm sure distros across the world.

Thanks.

This thread is not for asking if a band would be accepted, it's for asking about rejected/deleted bands.

The band was "rejected" long time ago. Not metal and not a side project.

Just wondering why Between the Buried and Me was deleted. They barely had any metalcore influence, any such influence has long been stripped. Their latest 3 albums are nothing but progressive metal (with plenty of other jazz, blues, etc.)

If you carefully read through the former version of this topic you will find ample reasons why BTBAM are not on this site.
But well, I guess it is the right time of the month for another BTBAM fan to come pestering us all about why they are not on the site and why it so preposterous that they have been deleted!
Next month another newbie will do the same and the story will continue. It seems just like the muppet's Veterinarian hospital with the continuing story of the quack that's gone to the dogs!


Terribly sorry for not carefully reading through the 208 pages from the former thread. Your response is much more helpful than a simple answer. Next time I'll sit alone in my room for 6 hours reading of people complaining (if I may say so myself, I was rather polite and diplomatic in my request).

Because the other user submitted it on Friday (in France - where the band resides), whereas you submitted it on Thursday.

Sorry, But I do not trust you. Zurvan Records is obviously your own label.

Unless the CD will be released by some etstablished label outside of Iran, the band will not be acepted.
That is not discrimination by nationality, by a result of behaviour of your many countrymen, wh completely disrespect our rules and could do anything to get the band accepted.
Besides that, it was confirmed by a trustful Iranian user, that there is no metal label in Iran.

Seriously? Is this a joke? There a shitloads of bands who are on MA and get accepted just because they released CDs independently, and this is no different. Also, plenty of bands get accepted just for having home-made demos or CD-R releases!

Dark Leader clearly has physical releases, what does it matter whether or not they are on an established label!?

Iranian bands are somehow famous for having phantom releases.

We were fooled many times by Iranian users who faked releases to get accepted on MA. Avoid such posts when you don't have a clue about the situation.

Unless it's a really good photoshop I don't see how it could be faked. It's pretty clear that it's a pro-CD rather than a CD-r with a paper sticker (those wouldn't have the background shine through in the middle) or one printed in a CD jet (those usually have a logo of the manufacturer in the transparent part in the middle) and pro-CDs don't usually come individually but can mostly just be ordered in bulk, so unless as I said it's a really good photoshop or the guy knows someone in a printing plant who could make him a single copy of this CD for him to fake his band onto the Archives (seems like a rather excessive (and cost-ineffective) amount of effort) there isn't really much room for that release being a fake.

I think EntilZha pretty much nailed it. Even if some Iranians faked releases, you can't assume ALL of them do.

The release is limited to 40 copies. As you said: unless the guy knows someone in a printing plant who could make him only 40 copies of pro CDs, this is not a pro CD but a pro CD-R, which can easily be made in one copy only.

No, we can't. Too bad for those who are honest. Life is unfair.
We might reconsider if we see mentions of that band/demo elsewhere on the net.
