Let's see, this is not the first time the encyclopaedia rejects my submissions, I'm almost used to it, but this time, I really can't understand why:

I recently attempted to submit Xibalba, an American California based Doom/Sludge Metal act, and its been rejected once and again. Now I suppose the reason for rejection has to do with the "metalness" thing, as the evidence of a physical release (full-lenght Hasta la Muerte) won't be a problem: http://www.southernlord.com/store.php

With regard to metalness, I gotta say I do realize there's plenty of hardcore influence in their music, yet I believe the core of all work both as a whole and seen song by song is doom and sludge metal indeed. Also, their songs are epic at a level that only metal can achieve. On the other hand, if it's true that there's hardcore stuff in it, it's also true there's plenty of death metal in it, so one could say "were even", uh?

I strongly suggest somebody different from the one(s) that already made the decision of rejecting them listen to Xibalba's work and judge by themselves:
