Why was In Ketten (The band where Absurd's members played while in jail) accepted if it is a Oi! band? Was it historical purposes, or because it's considered a part of the metal scene?

This, pretty much. Basically Absurd under another name and as such a selected exception.

Can we just accept that there is a form of Ambient music that files under Metal, apart from Dark Ambient and be done with it?

No, not really. Ambient music files under Ambient music. Metal files under Metal. That arguement is like saying that there are certain kind of birds that file under fish just because they swim.


I think you are being pretty subjective about this. There is indeed a genre of ambient that is parallel toi Black Metal, that is not in the same school of Dark Ambient. Avoid it if you want, but it's true.

Guess I will have to run off and slap together a "black metal" album to fit in.

Ambient is not metal, end of story. Bands can mix these and yes, black metal and ambient share a certain bond, but that doesn't magically turn the latter into a subgenre of the former. They are sonically quite distinct.

If you have so little self-confidence and artistic integrity that you are gonna let some site online dictate to you what kind of music you should make in order to "fit in", sure, knock yourself out. We can't stop you. It's certainly lame as hell, though.

Since it's not connected to anything, it will get purged automatically after a time.

Hey, In some month ago I submited one band called Svargaroth.
And recently the band has been accepted (based on what?) https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Sv ... 3540429460
When I sub it, the mod told me that there was no proof of physical release ( and it was true ).
So, I don't really understand, there is absolutely no proof for this band, no physical copy, and no digital ( around 9 minutes the EP ).
The band is probably split-up, the guy of this band don't go on his facebook.
What I want is to know if a physical proof has been found, or if Emptiness Cycle added this band with no proofs.
I just want to know how Svargaroth has been accepted.
Thanks.

Deleted. EC added the release as a CD, but he did not include any evidence in the submission or moderator notes, nor did he ever share his sources. As a moderator at the time, his draft was auto-approved, since we assume a certain level of trustworthiness and transparency from staffers, among other things. EC has recently been let go due to a lack of those very attributes and thus this entry does not stand up to scrutiny. Regrettably, all of his band additions should be double-checked, really.

That Weltbezwinger tape seems to exist. Erga Homines doesn't even have the full tracklist added, so that one may get nuked...

Was my sarcasm not obvious enough there?

We get so many people making that claim in earnest that I kind of got desensitised.

https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Fi ... 3540428862

Grey area case... no physical release, and the full-length album listed on the page is still on pre-order and has been since the release date. There was an alternate (different mix) version of the album released on the same day to anybody who messaged the band's social media pages for a period of about a week requesting a copy of it. This version isn't on MA, but I have a copy and could add it if that's considered a valid release. Otherwise, these guys should probably be deleted.

Hi Mods,

I'd like to query why was Squalus https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Squalus/3540431766 accepted? Yes, it has some sludge/doom(?) elements, but I don't feel that is predominantly metal, but mostly some punk-hardcore mix.
Their album can be listened to below;
https://squalus.bandcamp.com/

What do you think about it?

Oh cool, Giant Squid 2.0. I'll have a look. EDIT: I'm still rather drunk from yesterday, but it sounds fine to me.

It's a digital release given out on request. Seems valid, both as a basis for inclusion and a separate version.

Haha. :D
Okay, maybe you should give it another try once you sober up, if you feel like.

Why Vendel has been approved already, if their EP is still only for pre-order? Is 15 minutes digital material already accepted as enough length release?

Vendel's tape is already available in a store:
Reforestation Records' post in VK - https://vk.com/club151471742?w=wall-67116905_1258
it does although say that the official release is in a week, but the tape is available anyway
"Horizon" shop's post - https://vk.com/horizonmoscow?w=wall-126283647_2908
all in Russian.

Blood Iscariot was added a couple hours ago, however none of its releases are metal in the slightest: https://bloodiscariot.bandcamp.com/

This was included for listening in the submission notes and it's black metal all the way through. Question is, would that be enough if the rest is power electronics? There's also some discrepancies here, like said demo not being listed in the discography and the label link refers to it as the second and final demo after Rotten Pose whereas our disco has another one before and several after it.

Hi,

Not about deleting a band, but i'm suspicious with country of this band:

https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Ka ... 3540408147

Their story looks a lot like a glurge, all known scenes in Angola are in Luanda and Benguela, their production and English sound suspiciously good and it's unusual to find Death/Grind bands out of Maghreb and South Africa...

No really proofs at this time i know, but maybe doubt can be introduced in description?
"In absence of proof this band is considered as angolan, but their story and material introduced some doubts about it"


Yes, this does seem suspicious. The "band photo" posted here appears to predate the band by several years, based on a TinEye search, and there is no evidence that it is actually this band. This makes me quite suspicious about the "missing limbs" story, as they're quite overt about capitalizing on it as a gimmick, yet there's no actual pictures of them. Besides that, no mention of them in the Death Metal Angola documentary.

I agree, it does seem suspicious. I will remove the picture and add a note to the page.


Little bit of necromancy from July (and not totally in line with this thread's purpose anymore), but since there are so many red flags on this band's background, would it not be better to change the country from Angola to Unknown? We've done it several times in the past when country of origin seems dubious (see Hautaaminen, Infertile Surrogacy, Janaza, Luftwaffe, Seeds of Iblis, Syphilitic Vaginas, تدنيس, etc), so it makes sense to change Katingation as well.
