This is an appeal to the rejection of including Progressive Metal band OmnisighT into the Encyclopedia Metallum.

Reason was "Rock, not metal", and it is easy to be mislead by a band with clean vocals and melodies but if you can include a band like Dream Theater here, then you can include OmnisighT, who is even more METAL (shred guitar, double kicks, heavy riffs, etc) and has NO keyboards so soften up their sound. Here is my valid argument:

1) Did you read all the Site Rules? YES
2) Does your submitted band have a physical album out? (e.g. CD, LP or cassette) YES
3) Is your submitted band's CD/LP/tape released already as of the date of your posting? YES
4) Did you provide evidence of the above under the "submission rules" field of the band form? YES (pretty sure, see link below)

5) Is your band a non-metal side-project? NO

It is the main band of former SOULSCAR (can be found on the encyclopedia) drummer Chris Warunki on his independent label Warunki Media.
Here is what famous metal site BLABBERMOUTH has to say about it:

Also here is a published review of their album "Path", note: with the headline "OmnisighT specializes in progressive metal":

I know you run a tight ship here, which is good, but I hope you take all of the above into consideration since I'm providing a valid case.
Thanks... DEK

Step one: Post this here instead.

Step two: Wait patiently, we're very busy, but you are not being ignored.

They were judged non-metal by 3 moderators including myself, we don't care what Blabbermouth, your mom, Nickelback or Joe Sakic says.

I'm sorry Chris, but we considered your band to be alternative rock/progressive.
