Deleted Star Gazer from Germany. One heavy metal 7'' single, but the rest of their discography (3 full-lengths) is predominantly melodic hard rock.

So what is the rule on accepting metal singles? I just searched the rules and noticed that one metal single drowned out by several non-metal full-lengths will not allow the band a place on MA... but what if a band have no other albums released than one single? I already knew a band needed one fully unquestionnably metal album in order to gain acceptance, and from then on they can in theory play electronic dance music and still gain acceptance. Does this only apply for full-lengths?

I would say case by case basis. For instance if there's some obscure 80s hr/hm band that released like one 7" and that's all it's a completely different story than a band from 2017 who has one metal single y'know. And yeah, their discography will be taken into account. Pretty sure the band Az posted about got deleted because someone mentioned they had a ton of material that wasn't taken into account when they were submitted years ago.

For explanation about Stargazer, it was apparently deleted as the result of my submission yesterday. I could not find the band in the Archives, since they were listed as Star Gazer and not Stargazer, so I wanted to submit them myself. I knew, that heir first album was not consistently metal, so I submitted them with samples from the first single and the full album Dinomania, which I own and which is imo consequently heavier than their first album. The submission was naturally rejected as duplicate and it turns out, that even Dinomania was not metal enough, sincesthe band got quickly deleted afterwards. Hre is their single , if sanybody wants to listen to it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNkM-nSsC_0
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmPfhiE4B9M

On another topic, can please somebody please review the bands Crossfaith and Metal Nobre, which I have posted on the previous page: I know they have multiple albums, but i just do not want it to get overlooked or at lest would like to know, if somebody is already working on it?

Full-lengths are preferred. EPs might work, but as Eros said, it depends on the individual case. The way I see it, it's all about context and documenting things as they are. So a case like Star Gazer, where there is one metal single and a sizeable non-metal discography, that's not acceptable. However, if a band only released an acceptable single and nothing else, that would be fine, because their output as a whole is clearly metal and that's the simple reality of it. But what if they had released a rock album after that, you might say? Well, they didn't. What if they had one recorded, but by some unfortunate happenstance it never got released? Well, they didn't release it. That's how things turned out. And if they ever did, we'd have to take another look at the entry.

Star Gazer was approved by me in 2014 and although I'm not sure, it could be that I simply hadn't been aware of the post-7'' material (there was only mention of the single in the submission notes and that the band "got more melodic later on"). Most of the discography was added after they were approved. Witcher's duplicate (and Antioch and Paganius being observant) made me check out their full-lengths and none of them are predominantly metal, sadly.

Witcher, I'll check out Crossfaith and Metal Nobre when I can. For the record, there is no need to constantly bump your posts in here, unless we are talking about something getting buried after a month or so. This thread can move slowly, but we're keeping track of it.

Because they have at least one metal album. La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Vol. 1 is pretty clearly a (groove) metal album.

Thanks. I wasn't appealing against the deletion, I just wanted to understand the rule better for future references, in case I ever submit a band again or find an accepted band no longer matching MA criteria. To be honest, I never even knew that bands could be subject to re-evaluation based on later releases.

Another dubious band is the metalcore band Crossing Edge, since they play imo exactly the kind of alternative tinged metalcore with emoish melodies, that Sonic Syndicate play on their later albums and that is more core than metal. Samples:

And yet anothr problematic band is Faceplate, listed here as thrash/Power metal. I could not find any samples, but German rock Hard describes the music as groove-core with industrial influences and Discogs.com lists the album as "experimental hardcore.
Review: Mit ihrem atmosphärischen Groove-Core, gespickt mit Industrial-Hints, erinnern FACEPLATE hier und da ein wenig an die Groovemonster von Souls At Zero, ohne deren Klasse ganz zu erreichen. Trotzdem geben die Jungs aus Kanada auf ihrem Erstling eine ganz passable Figur ab. Sicher auch ein Verdienst von Produzent Mark S. Berry (u.a. VoiVod), der die rhythmusbetonte Mucke des Vierers prima in Szene gesetzt hat, ohne die Band in ein zu enges Soundkorsett zu zwängen. So bleiben der Gruppe genügend Freiräume, in denen sie ihre urwüchsige Power entfalten kann. Leider mangelt es dem FACEPLATE-Debüt auf die Dauer ein wenig an der nötigen Abwechslung, obwohl sich die Jungs zumindest in Sachen Geschwindigkeit größte Mühe gegeben haben. Aus dem Rahmen fallen mit der völlig kaputten Geräuscheskapade 'Deep False Hope' (klingt wie'ne Mischung aus Ministry und Einstürzende Neubauten) und der balladesk-düsteren Black Sabbath meets Alice In Chains-Nummen 'Morose' eigentlich nur zwei der zwölf Tracks. Ansonsten groovt es eigentlich ständig, was einem mit der Zeit doch gewaltig auf die Eier gehen kann. Sieben Punkte mit Aufwärtstendenz haben sich FACEPLATE, die auf dem letztjährigen Dynamo Open Air fleißig Promomaterial verteilt hatten und dadurch letzten Endes auch den Deal bei Milestone an Land ziehen konnten, aber allemal verdient.

Thanks a lot, Antioch. Interesting conicidence, since the rereason, whey I posted this, was the fact, the a copy of the album appeared on a Czech auction site and I was gathering info on the band, if it is worth buying or not. I finally decided not to, since the postage I would pay wwould be higher than the actual price of the CD and I do not want to have in my collection CDs I do not really like. https://aukro.cz/faceplate-casual-obser ... 6934323901

I paid €7 for 4 CDs incl. postage (from Germany). Nothing I can't resell at the same price.
Bought this one, too:
http://www.discogs.com/Bliss-Re-Thought/release/1644387
It'll need re-assessing, too, at some point *hint Azzy*.

Metal Nobre deleted. Another mod commented on Crossfaith, saying that they're borderline acceptable, but perhaps more of us will chip in on this one.

Crossing Edge was approved based on the first full-length. I'll have another listen.

Thanks, Antioch. Lemme know.

Thanks, Azmodaz.
Another band I was wondering about recently is Holy Soldier. I know, that they were accepted based on their first album, but I was listening to it recently and ffrankly I do not find any difference in style or heaviness between H"Holy Soldier" and "Last Train". They both sound to me like Ratt's Out Of The Cellar album, combined with Dokken's more hard rock material, also more Har rock than metal. The only songs, that could be called metal on the debut are "Tear Down The Walls" and with some hesitation "See No Evil" , which has something similar to Queensryche, the rest is predominantly hard rock imo. The third album is grunge inspired modern hard rock, by the way. Here are all three albums:

The Czech bband Harlej also needs re-evaluation, since they play imo hard rock with punk influences and not really metal: Full album and samples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQKNXix ... x0wzCoavm0

The Czech band Drunk President is imo more hard rock with funk influences than heavy metal with funk influences, they sound like a mix of Extreme and Mr.Big. Here are two songs on Youttube:

Blodtørst - sounds strange for sludge metal plus the quality is rather poor. I've checked that's their only release. Download.

Yeah, Blodtørst isn't sludge. Borderline instrumental stoner rock/metal and as a digital release it's kinda wonky. Deleted.

Drunk President deleted.

Thanks again.
Another one: Steven Patrick, former vocalist of Holy Soldier. There is one real heavy metal song on "Red Reign", namely "Fire", but again, the rest of the album is predominantly hard rock imo. Full album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n34o8-o ... FMCqvDJbc7

His second album"Guns&Gold" is entirely in country&blues style and has nothing to do with metal whatsoever: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCqiowa7QpY

The Swedish band Crashdiet iis imo pure sleaze/glam/hard rock and not really predominantly heavy metal. Their style is in no way different from other Scandinavian neo-glam bands like Crazy Lixx, Hardcore Superstar, Dirty Penny, Santa Cruz etc., so I see not much reason in featuring then here.
Samples: Full first album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opTHtib59cE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crQ26FCqnmU
https://open.spotify.com/artist/1cB013ULmW96lglRcrWTut

Edit: To have the Holy Soldier samples complete, here are their two early demos. The first one, the three track demo from 1985, is really heavy metal in style, while the second demo from 1988 is already in the polished hard rock style of the debut album:

I always figured Crashdïet was accepted because they draw a lot of inspiration from the more metal works of Mötley Crüe and Skid Row.

I remember we wanted to review Crashdïet again at some point, but it would appear that kind of slipped through the cracks. Oops.

eeeeeh, Antioch sent me the album and it's certainly not thrash/power. Hardly metal at all; the review Witcher posted isn't wrong. It's some kind of industrial mallcore/groove, probably deletable. EDIT: It's gone.

I realize this has been here for very long, and you may want to keep it as a side-project, but the band isn't really metal.

Based on what information was 14-22. The only thing I can find about this band is some pages citing that its only known member (Adrián Cenci) recorded "Calles de Cemento" at age 15.

There is no album cover, no photo of the release, not even a single known track of it, only the name of the release, a vague date (1985), the starting year of the band (1983) and just one known member of the band.

This was added more than 9 years ago though, I don't know if it was accepted thanks to samples, some review in a fanzine or website or anything like this, but this is way too obscure and it lacks almost any crucial info.

That's...not uncommon for obscure 80s/90s stuff, though. Keep in mind that just because there's no info now, doesn't mean there hasn't been info when it got added. There most likely was, because otherwise it wouldn't have been accepted.

Why are Scorpions accepted as a metal band on MA when they've never played metal music, but hard rock (up until Love at First Sting and cheesy rock in the later period)? They've never made the album that can be considered mostly metal.

Because they have at least one album we consider metal. How about you stop asking about big bands?

Why are Scorpions accepted as a metal band on MA when they've never played metal music, but hard rock (up until Love at First Sting and cheesy rock in the later period)? They've never made the album that can be considered mostly metal.

Because they have at least one album we consider metal. How about you stop asking about big bands?


Can you tell me which album exactly?

This is simply all that needs to be said about the topic. They are mentioned in the rules, as well and it even says they aren't going anywhere. So, again, please stop asking about very well known bands.

It's been a while, but it was a 70s' era album: In Trance, Taken by Force, etc.

But as Storm says, please do stop asking about famous, well-known bands. We don't say this because we're mad at you, or anything of that sort, but just that we have discussed them to death, and if you search this forum you're more than certain to find the answer you are looking for about them. Repeating ad nauseum the reasons we rejected or accepted a band isn't something we like to do.

Hi,

I was wondering if I could re-submit the band Old Love, it was rejected a few years ago with the following message:

"While the "Perversion" EP seems to be leaning towards post-black metal, the first EP is certainly post-hardcore. Given that they're both rather short digital-only EPs, I don't think this is currently acceptable based on this output. There certainly isn't a complete, predominantly metal album."

Given that the rules have changed a bit, I would like to know if their 5 track EP Perversion can make them eligible to be accepted. Thanks.

I was very surprised today to find the band Streets here, since they play a very commercial style of melodic hard rock/aor, which has absolutely nothing to do with metal and which is in the vein of bands like Foreigner, Journey or Alaska. Please, listen:

Joe Cubie's post in the "genre" thread made me notice, that Streets are listed, please see it here: https://www.metal-archives.com/board/vi ... 8#p2813258

Wrong thread, please post in the correct one.

hi.
HeavierThanThou systematically adds misc stuff of lineup both to appropriate tab and additional notes.
also he adds "bandcamp" to "version description" of digital versions.
example:
https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/D ... her/729574
and respective digital version:
https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/D ... her/729579
as for my disagreement with "bandcamp" note, here's this album on amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/Spirit-Crusher-D ... C3%B6dsrit
please sent a friendly reminder to him.
cheers.

I am not a moderator, but I tthink, that your post was intended to be in another thread, Shadechaser. This is the correct thread you seek: https://www.metal-archives.com/board/vi ... 6#p2813406
