I was the one who blacklisted it.

For a non-metal side-project to be accepted on the site, it needs to be fall under very special conditions.
1. The person forming the side-project must be an esteemed or renowned musician in the metal world, usually recognised for a bigger, more famous project
2. The side-project must be created in tandem with the member's main (metal) band
3. The release typically needs to be distributed on a worldwide label

Now, these rules aren't set in stone, but they're generally the guidelines that we follow when deciding if a metal musician's non-metal side-project is important enough to be relevant to a metal encyclopaedia.

We need to be cautious bout what projects we accept under the side-project rule, since it'd be too easy for a flood of unheard of/unimportant bedroom projects to inundate the 'archives.

Lastly, please use this thread in future for appealing about rejected or blacklisted bands.

Thank you.
Buy shit.
