Is there a way of doing that?

I recently came across situations while digging for info on long dead/obscure bands.

This in particular: https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/B ... ars/172147

There were some artists credited like "Guest Vocals on <track name here> by "Florian / <band 1>, <band 2>".

Sadly band 1 and 2 are both not in the archives (probably some un-metalcore or something) and I would've had to search my way through thousands of Florians, Flos and similar in order to have a chance to track that one down and link him properly (in case he played in other bands afterwards or before and is credited correctly). I didn't and ended up adding a new artist.

I would love to see a feature to search for unlisted bands that are linked to an artist. Can I do that somehow?

Like in the advanced band search, but instead of "band name" and "genre" you get "artist name", "real name" and "bands". Maybe even split up "bands" and "unlisted bands" or something :bow: pls :bow:

It should also include all fields (date and/or year of birth, gender, country and city of origin, biography).

I'm pretty sure many artists of smaller bands are duplicate and could be merged that way.
