Hi

Recently, I found that some people started to submit lyrics to Gorgoroth's page of this site.
As some of you know, Gorgoroth never released their lyrics, and despise everyone who wants to publish them.
I also remember that some years ago this site, on Gorgoroth's page, used to have a sentence like this: "Gorgoroth has never released official lyrics for any of their albums, so, do not add any lyrics"

So, for this reason, I deleted their lyrics here.

Some of the lyrics were like this:

"--------------
The root of despair
Forces of Satan storms
Sacrifice
Crushing deep
Forces of Satan storms

Life Destroyers
---------------
------zero life------
Forces of Satan storms

-----------------
How bizzare, beg for mercy
Forces of Satan Storms
----------we hope tonight
Enslaves human kind
Forces of Satan Storms"

Or

"I (awake?)
The raging blasphemy
--------- of (love?)
Procreating Satan

-----------demons fornicate
Shout the purified----------
Sacrificial lambs
Procreating Satan

(1:44)---------------------
---------------------
---------------------
--------------------- (2:07)"

So, I think what I did was justified. This is (pretty much) an Encyclopaedia, and in the rules state that the info must be verifiable, and guessed lyrics are certainly not reliable.

Now, I would like to know if I did right, or if my actions were completely wrong. Thank you.

No, your actions were 100% completely damn right and I'll send a warning to whatever user attempted to "guess" the lyrics themselves.

At least that person didn't try to guess the lyrics from the Pentagram album. If there are any.

Well... They tried.

"For you the life of temptation
Temptations so wild
With the suffers hold my glad
Treasures blood will rape by so lies
So satural, so wild

Get its the silent sun
Resurrection ruuunnn!

Yaaaaghhh
Aaaaaghhh

The beautiful world
Now want to cut
A world to win
The beautiful world
Yah! how we must
To grasp you!"

According to Wikipedia, Gorgoroth has been known to "threaten" lyric websites with legal force in instances where their lyrics are displayed. So it would be in the best interest of Encyclopaedia Metallum not to ever include Gorgoroth lyrics, except, I suppose, official lyrics (should the band ever release them--which is unlikely).

We remove Gorgoroth lyrics because factually they do not exist, not because of the boogeyman inspired by the band's insistence on relying upon legal recourse as the "solution" to solve all their problems, big or small. We're an encyclopedia; we rely upon objective evidence for information, not the inaccurate guesses of users.

This issue is considered closed.

Also, I wish I'd once witness a site on the internet actually being sued for anything except extreme libel against people who are too wealthy to oppose... That threat gets mentioned once a month here, but nothing ever happens. And it's ALWAYS bullshit.
