Hi guys,

I'm commenting on two rejeceted band submissions of mine - I dug up some more listening material in one case and additional proof of existence in the other case:

EvilZ (Chn) (submission rejected on Dec. 2nd, 2017)
In addition to the already provided discogs link (https://www.discogs.com/de/EvilZ-Abaddon/master/872883), here's the info on duoban for both versions of the demo:
https://music.douban.com/subject/3670293/
https://music.douban.com/subject/3450947/
There's also this last.fm link, but I don't know if there are more samples behind it: https://www.last.fm/music/EvilZ/Abaddon
And, as a final thing, this chinese streaming site: http://www.xiami.com/artist/cxAL28821?s ... 3.9.zA02W1

Now about Robert Rodrigo (Esp) (submission rejected Mar. 8th, 2018):
You asked about a way to listen to 'Wrath' in full, so I dug up some more:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007P ... B007PMBHQ2
https://itunes.apple.com/bz/album/wrath/524147095

Maybe you can work with that - thanks for your time.

Include those links in the draft and resubmit.

Hello! I noticed the band i was trying to add (Silver Dust) was blacklisted, i get that it was my mistake to forget to provide proofs of the releases and music samples so here they are:


Releases:

https://itunes.apple.com/ch/album/the-age-of-decadence/id1086974205?l=fr (Itunes)

https://musique.fnac.com/a10747610/Silver-Dust-The-Age-Of-Decadence-CD-album (Fnac, it's a physical copy but unfortunately they don't have it in stock at my local mall at the moment, so i can't take a picture of it, i hope the links will be enough)

Music samples:

So Let Me Now: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6niTuuKhr0)
Heaven Knows: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpnQnGhWuJc)

Some tracks can also be listened to in the Itunes link i provided above.

They were judged to be a goth rock band in the vein of HIM.

Here is the link with all the stuff, cds are home printed but cdr are really wrll done,not a sticker on it but in some ways printed in the plastic.
Thanks,S.

This requires some proof of distribution. How many copies? How is it being sold? Can you link to anything confirming that this is a public release?

Hi! Can I know when and why was Italian band "Rome in Monochrome" blacklisted?
As for me their last album is doom (post-)metal.

eh, still sounds dominated by soft post-rock and similar.

Sludgy hardcore, blacklisted in December, 2016. Regarding your last crop of links, we really don't value third-party opinions like that, especially when there are song samples available for listening.

The new release is from March 2018, perhaps re-evaluate?

Whitelisted.

Hello guys, I just received notice that my submission of Au Revoir (United States) and their album Veles has been rejected. I have read the rules but unless I ACCIDENTLY missed it, post-metal is an accepted genre, is it not? Though the band is crossover with post-rock and post-hardcore moments, 70% of their music is in fact post-metal.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCWMACqTse4

https://aurevoirit.bandcamp.com/track/deluge

The moderator who rejected it disagrees. More post-rock than metal.

Hello, I have to ask again. This time, it wil be rather serious. When I returned to the site, with a handicap I did not want mention, bu now I have to ů-OI am nnow completely sightless, I aasked myself many questions: Will my old account work,? How will I be treated? How will my submissions treated without my old mod status.: Will I get undestanding for the possible incompletion of my submissions, caused by my current handicap and the fact, that I am submitting rare nad local bands, preferably from the classic and power metal genre. And my feelings are mixed, I did not worry after one rejection, and after the moderator ----------------------aznodas contacted me and ws very polite and friendly, ny hopes were high. But now I have a feeling, that many of my worries have come true. After my rejoicing, tthat I found the proof of physical rlease for the band S- Rave, that band was rjected today with the reasoning, that the sample sounds ambigous and there isneed for more samples. Ambigous?

IIRC, it was heavy metal/hard rock that was probably fine, but the crucial part was that the sample wasn't present on any of the releases and was just a single song.

A band thatsounds like old Loudness and Earthshaker and have even played with them on a heavy metal festival: I understand, that you want to double check, but i that case, you could inform me, ttthat I can suggest placing the band in the thread for possibly acceptable bands and not let me wait a whole month.

This is a hobby for all involved, as you well know. Some submissions are dealt with faster than others. It's actually a telling sign that yours linger for a while; they are often ambiguous and dodgy in one way or another, sorry. The problem is usually that the proof of release is unclear or the sampling too slim and unrepresentative. Nobody really wants to deal with them. I can't begin to imagine how difficult your condition must be for you and it's admirable that you are nevertheless still trying to contribute, but the fact remains that a lot of those submissions are simply lacking.

Another case, the Czech band Ckb. It was rejected for not being metal. Really, tha band has an avantgarde approach, but not more tha the NorNorwegian band Virus, for example and most of their songs are based on real metal riffs, even if they are a tad psychedelic in natureIt is true, that the first three songs on Bandzone are not metal, but I submitted them on the merit of their 2015 album, which is available ccompletely on bandzone for listening, I feel a strong similarity to Angl Rat era Voivod, and the sythscertainly take away the metalness form the guitarsoound. It is certainly not djent, post-hardcore or anything that can be mistaken for progressive metal: http://bandzone.cz/ckb. I is true, that the first three songs on Bandzone are not metal, but I submitted them on the merit of their 2015 album and the songs are not on it. http://bandzone.cz/ckb Another case the band Knights OfThe Remnant: T
To me , acceptable heavy metal with hard touch, all the songs on Reverbnation have metal riffing in the style of Metallica or Black Label Society, except the last one. The style of the and is at least as heavy as Dokken in their heavy metal period or comparable bands like Holy Soldier on their first album: https://www.reverbnation.com/knightsoftheremnant The last case is the band The Motowns, I would underrstand, if it would be rejected for having only one smaple song, but the statement, that the band plays hard rorock is a bit of a stretch, since the song is ¨quite epic heavy metal in the tration of early Gama bands like High Tension, Gravestone, Midnight Darkness, Veto, Gravestone and Stormwitch, I wwould beg and suggest its placement in the possible inclusion thread. Now, if You allow me a personal remark, it had fears, how my submissions would be treated after such a long time. and I was at least partially right. Please understand, that I do not want a total exemptionfor my submission. What I would like is mutual understanding andmore trust from the site staff, regarding my past contribution to the site and my current personal time of toubles. On the other hadn, tI have to thank all mods, who add albums to my submissions and for the acceptance of such rare bands as Crossfade with the little info I provided. I just tthink, that you are needlessly strict in cases, where you do not havetoo, while other cases from comparable genres of metal go through the net without bigger problems -for exanple, the German "heavy metal" aor band The Wizard. aperhaps the traditional heavy metal is not a preffered genre among the new moderators and the have different standards, than I had, when I was a part of the site staff, but still I feel a bit embittered, when I see death/black bands being accepted almost instantly, when tratraditional metal bands are exposed to such ordeal. Thanks. . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8DQcoiAnRI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zksQC5AAAQk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=heb8h-GhsJc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVmkWlgGKHQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q78ueswH6Hk S-Rave: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nWdb9RtTek I would also to stress out, that movement through forums is rather complicated for me due to my current situation, so please take also that into accont and also excuse the many typos I made.

I don't really know what to tell you, other than (again, as you should know) music is subjective and there's bound to be disagreement for the outliers, even between individual mods. I hope you aren't going to bring up every single borderline rejection in this thread. Our rules haven't changed, though, as you mention, I would agree that our standards on what constitutes valid proof of release etc. are higher nowadays and we're more thorough during the evaluation process. There's no nice way of putting this, but from the 2007/2008 period especially there were a lot of bands that have turned out to be very much not metal or simply missing releases (and a lot more no doubt remain to clean up), so I'd say we have improved in that regard.

As for these bands you mentioned, I can however have a listen and share my thoughts later.

-number of copies are not well definite because they print them at home when they sold out them, a new reprint comes ( as evry distro do back in the master cdr+ xeroxed tape cover)
-it is sold directly at Black Legion (ita) live concerts, because is the only band of Mareritt Frost Holocausto ( the guy behind this pronect) who plays live gigs
-this guy is in a some way not so tecnology friendly..than he havn't facebook, but if you take contact through this page:
https://m.facebook.com/BlackLegionCT666/
That's the only way you can ceck the real presence of this stuff..i have only two copies of the cd:)

I tried to submit a band yesterday, but I think it was missing some data proving its veracity (I thought the picture of the tape would be sufficient... Sorry.).

Here's a picture "better" of the tape:

So, a question was asked by a member of After Death Alone had posted about it on a Fb group, in which I happened to notice it while scrolling down my newsfeed. He was not understanding why his band got rejected.... I asked him to link his band so I could check it out, so he did.

As I'm listening to this album https://afterdeathalone666.bandcamp.com ... te-of-time , I am trying to figure out why, also, as it's very much DBM.

Would it be too much to ask if someone were to look into this, and give a reason why it his band got rejected? I really would appreciate it.

(Edit)**He just linked me to a split that is listed on M-A: https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/B ... ess/655918

Shoegaze/Post-Punk with some black metal leanings but no release that's mostly black metal, at least as of February 2017. Not sure if the listed release was considered or not at that point.

Can I add a band that just released the debut EP (and not a full length) in digital format? The band is waiting for CD and tape to be released and while waiting they put out the EP in bandcamp.

The rules mention that for digital ONLY release it should be a full length of 30+ minutes. This is not a digital only release as it will be on CD and tape also. That is why I thought that there is no problem that it is an EP under 30', so I submitted the band with the digital version first. On the 20th of April the tape will be released (here is the announcement from the label: https://www.facebook.com/mercyfulhell/p ... 1198639508) so when the band is accepted which I hope it will, I will add the tape version also.

That also means digital-only at the time of submission. As we require (qualifying) releases out already at the time of submission, any future physical versions don't count.

In that case you can delete this submission because as it seems I understood it wrong :) ... when the EP is released physically on CD and/or tape I will re-submit it as it should be done. Here is the link with the submitted band: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Gungnir/3540438719
Sorry for the trouble and I will wait for the releases.

Did a search but the band didn't come up.

The band Krosis released their debut album Solem Vatem earlier this month. They're not on the Archives nor are they in the band queue. I figured I'd ask since they may not be metal enough for the site, but I think it's worth a listen. They kind of remind me of a mix between After the Burial, Veil of Maya, and Born of Osiris, the first two of which are listed here. I guess prog/metalcore? I have no idea. Would they be worthy of inclusion here?

Immolation Fist
Maelstrom
Full album

I'm always glad when someone is actually using the search function first, but not every single instance of an excluded band shows up here. Sometimes bands are just blacklisted/rejected and that's that. You can however check if a band is on the blacklist by putting the name and country in the submission form. If it's blocked, an orange warning box will show up.

Which means it's a pretty old entry. Link us to whatever you think is their most metal release.

Terrible. Also still unacceptable deathcore/wank.

I just checked that and yes, you're totally right. Thanks for the tip, and I'll definitely do that next time. Obviously I don't add bands very often, haha.

Enterprise Earth was on MA for quite long. So I thought it was metal enough for this long. May I know why was it removed/blacklisted recently. It was there couple of weeks back. Did it turn more non-metal lately(there is no release) or its due to their last release?

Why this band is blacklisted? It's folk metal from Argentina (chacarera.)

It was blacklisted in 2014, more -core than metal. If it was listed and re-evaluated (and not just rejected), that's not that unusual. A lot of unacceptable -core bands were approved around 2007/2008, we're still cleaning up there.

Folk rock, blacklisted in 2015. If there's been a new release since then, please link to it (we need more than one song).

You'd be surprised how often bands misrepresent their sound, done intentionally, maliciously or otherwise.

Any idea why Demon Hunter is still blacklisted? Since "The World Is A Thorn" they've been going in a "melodic groove metal" direction, with less "hardcore" elements. If bands like Soilwork and Scar Symmetry are on here, it stands to reason that Demon Hunter should be as well.
