I can confirm that Snowy Shaw (the band) were submitted with that live covers album by a user of uncertain intelligence, ethic and intuition and were rejected, a few years back...

My recent submission of the black metal band Konstriktor was denied:
Quote:
This band has been rejected by the moderators for the following reason:

"Not a metal band; does not belong on Encyclopaedia Metallum. Please read (or re-read) our rules next time to see what qualifies as metal."
It isn't specific and I was just wondering why it was rejected? If it's ultimately decided the band shouldn't be on the site than so be it, it is what it is, but I'm curious as to specifically why it was rejected. I know the sound quality and mixing are both really aggressively bad but I can definitely hear a metal band in there. Their own Facebook page describes themselves as "black thrash" and they're labeled as "death metal", "black metal", and "thrash metal" on sputnikmusic. Just curious, that's all.

Thanks :)

Thanks to the Search button I became awared that the postgoth band Lacrimosa is in our blacklist. I understand why, they are not really in the metal field. However, after listening to their last album "Testimonium (2017)" I realized that their sound now includes a predominance of distorted guitar riffs. The entire album sounds like gothic/symphonic metal to me, with the exception of one ballad (Lass die Nacht nicht über mich fallen), of course my opinion is subjective.

I normally wouldnt request you to take a band out of our blacklist, but then I read this: "Most importantly, the Archives can in some ways be seen as a database of metal releases rather than bands. What that means is that in order to gain entry, a band only needs one predominantly metal release (ideally a full-length), regardless of the rest of their discography. This can result in bands starting out as metal, but changing to non-metal later or the reverse."

I'm posting the link to let you listen the entire album, please pay attention to the song Weltenbrand, it even has double bass drumming and guturals:

Sounds like a low quality mix of just random guitar noodlings. If anything, it is just shit-quality glam-like something.

Listened to the entire album. While Weltenbrand is metal-like, the album is just hte same-old Lacrimosa, goth rock that sometimes borders on metal. This album sounds more like mostly symphonic trappings and guitar not-riffs and even then the riffs are caught between some sort of gothy metal and doomy goth rock.

Was blacklisted in November 2017 for being too far on the melodic -core side of things. Have they released anything new since then?


Nothing new yet. I just joined the band and am actually hoping to bring them out of the deathcore style and more into the melodic death metal style of my previous band Held In Scorn https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Held_in_Scorn/.

Thanks for clarifying!

Hello,

"Snowy Shaw" (Sweden) has been blacklisted as a band. The guy has gone solo, and released his first album in may.
He had already toured under his own name, covering songs from his previous bands. He even released a live album with that material.

Maybe the covers were the reason why he was blacklisted? If so, his new album White is the new black is 100% original metal material.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmXx4ujacOg
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JnOmTPwho0
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBCOgZYZPK0
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d21Dyz6ayo0

Or is there another reason why there is no band page with his name?

Whitelisted for evaluation. Yeah, it had been blacklisted because of his cover-only era. I've listened to some of the songs of this new album and it might check out this time. Resubmit.

Y la vas a seguir esperando. La lista de espera tiene justo ahora un total de 300 bandas; la más vieja del 12 de mayo. Tenemos mucho trabajo en todos los aspectos del sitio, y todos los miembros del staff lo hacemos como pasatiempo y tenemos una vida fuera de aquí. No estamos encadenados a un escritorio aprobando bandas y más bandas. Ten paciencia. En un día no se va a aceptar tu banda.

Aparte, noté que escribiste usando únicamente mayúsculas, para el nombre y género, así como para los nombres de los miembros. Eso NO está aceptado aquí. Usamos las reglas gramaticales de cada idioma, así como la capitalización correcta. Y también noté que la temática de las letras la agregaste en español. Debió ser en inglés. Todo lo que no sea títulos de canciones, de álbumes, o de letras, debe ser en inglés.

Te propongo lo siguiente: rechazaré tu banda. Haces las correcciones pertinentes conforme a lo que te acabo de explicar, y agregas los links en la pestaña apropiada (los agregaste en notas adicionales y ahí NO van) y será más probable que el proceso se agilice.

One last thing: this is an English-only site. I extended you the one-time courtesy of addressing the subject in Spanish, since there was a lot to be explained, but it won't happen again. Please, be a dear and stick to using English for the rest of your time as a collaborator in here.

They have released an EP in 2017. Despite the hardcore influences, I suppose they deserve to be reevaluated:

Why in the right mind was Snakebite (Germany) blacklisted? I just listened to their album "Rise Of The Snake" and it's about as traditional metal as it gets. Perhaps it was judged on previous releases that I haven't heard?

Would you guys consider giving that record ^ a spin? Perhaps it would fit the guidelines better (especially seeing some of the songs are pretty speed metal esque).

Some time ago, I submited my band Kathreptis (Colombia) Death Metal/Grindcore and was blacklisted for lack of information, this because I provided only three tracks of the first demo (In that time, the First demo was only in tape, not digital). Now I have the first and second demo in digital format (Bandcamp and Youtube).

There was also a user who asked about the band Wolvennest and their new album Void, if it is doom metal enough this time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddhctVSP8cg Another user asked about the oi! band Battle Ruins, if ttheir new album Glorious is metal enough to get then whitelisted. I know, how it sounds, but such was the question ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Zut1I0eeNg..

They probably were rejected on account of their early work (the self-titled 2010 EP and demo) being way too Oi!/Punk-oriented. Their last two releases were much heavier; not a world away from Motörhead, really.

Hi,

my name is Nuno Lourenço and I am the man behind the solo Black Metal project Salqiu.
I would like to know why that name appears to have been "banned" or "not accepted" before, as I reckno someone before myself has tried to register it in this fabulous site.

Thank you in advance for any clarification on this matter.

Best,
Nuno Lourenço (the man behind Salqiu)

Hello,

I am trying to submit the band Cockblockers (Greece) but I get a warning on the submission form about it being blacklisted. Can I please ask why it was blacklisted and if it's possible to clear it from the queue so I can do a proper submission?


Thank you!

Heya, friends! I am just posting in an effort to contest the rejection of my band, Ghostbound, on the grounds of its perceived "lack of metalness". I daresay we more than meet the criteria on my end based on "Roof and Wall", specifically:

https://atmfsssdtp.bandcamp.com/album/all-is-phantom

I do realize that we cover quite a bit of ground outside of metal, but the guitar-tone and general attitude more than falls into the metal realm album-wide, in my book. I think we definitely fall into the atmospheric/quasi-avant metal realm in the Deadly Carnage/Alcest/Heretoir vein, for what it is worth. We are also labelmates with An Autumn for Crippled Children, Deadly Carnage, Forgotten Woods, Svarti Loghin, et cetera. Of course, my own definition may differ from that of the moderators, but my opinion is resolute :-)

Regards,
Alec

Hi.
I'm trying to add new band called "Jinjer". And I get a warning that this band is from US and it is banned.
At first this band is from Ukraine not US. Secondly I think this is an error!
I readed all submission rules and I couldn't find any item about deny to submition this great band.
Jinjer plays at groove metal style I found many other band of this style at this site.
I ask you reconsider the ban.

The Ukraine band is blacklisted as well, for being more -core than metal.

Good day. I was trying to re-add the band Va today, since it was initially rejected about 1.5 days ago. I have made some updates to the band page submission, including a detailed explanation within the Submission Notes why this band should be added to the metal-archives site. When I clicked to re-submit it, it notified me that the band is currently blacklisted.

Would you please remove the band Va from your blacklist, so I can re-submit it with the additional notes I included?

Thank you kindly!

If the band have new material you can ask for a re-evaluation.

Thank you

I reckon my project is Avant-garde, quite experimental and has some industrial layers, but you clearly haven't heard it properly if you claim it is not majorly metal.
Yes, the project has new material, having released now 2 full length albums (one of them in two different versions, one for CD and the oter released in tape by Dutch label Tenebrae Sumus Records) and an EP. I am currently recording a 3rd full length that should be out by October/November this year.
Please listen to https://salqiu.bandcamp.com/track/dead-but-dreaming or https://salqiu.bandcamp.com/track/capit ... it-of-eden for a re-evaluation, and if you still find the project is not absolutely metal based and only then experimental/avantgarde, then I will resign my claim.

Thanks and best
Nuno

Can you post the rejection message cause I don't see it anywhere


Erosion of Humanity, if you were addressing to me, here is the message you inquired:
"Not a metal band; does not belong on Encyclopaedia Metallum. Please read (or re-read) our rules next time to see what qualifies as metal."


Ok well its blacklisted for not being metal so whatever notes you added aren't gonna help. Wait until you release something decidedly metal.

Erosion of Humanity, I am not sure if whoever black listed the band, listened to the debut (only) album. Hence I wanted to re-appeal it with a re-submission, and a set of notes that are based on the metal-archives' rules, pointing out how the band meets the criteria. Also, another reason I think someone did not listen to the album is because initially when I submitted the band, I only put "Drone" as a genre, which violates one of the rules, hence the band was immediately blacklisted. I altered the genre to "Drone / Doom Metal", since some individuals have labeled the band as Doom, as well. I have "third party" written notes to prove it if need be, as well...

I hope you can give me the chance to re-submit the band.

Thank you for your time!

I'd like to thank you MA crew for the search button while posting new band, because then I was fastly informed that bands Solarized (stoner, US) and Monkey3 (psychedelic stoner, Switzerland) are blacklisted. But...
Both bands can use "stoner" in the description of their music. You said that there is stoner rock and stoner metal and it's sometimes hard in this genre to decide which band is "enough metal". Ok, I understand that. But you've written here that band can be accepted later when they record more metal album than its others.
So, Solarized played some hard riffs in the "Neanderthal Speedway" and "Driven" albums, but it was 17 years ago, since then I haven't heard about new records so probably this band still doesn't meat submission rules.
On the other hand, swiss band Monkey3 makes awesome psychedelic stoner music and we can hear really massive riffs on the older album "39 Laps" (2006). If not, they're still playing, they recorded album "5th Sun" in 2013 and I think that music of Monkey3 has changed a bit, it is more psychedelic and harder/massive, like 1st track "Icarus".
Dear MA Crew, can you listen to this album? Maybe it will meet the rules of psychedelic stoner rock/metal and then this band could be added? Thank you for creating this site, I've checked a lot of fantastic music here even from stoner genre. Greetings from Poland!
