Link Metalcore bands, part 3545436 / 2006-09-08 00:34

It has recently come to my attention that dubious bands claiming to be "metalcore" keep plaguing the site, despite some efforts to ward them off.

The rules have officially been updated to reflect the policy about metalcore bands. The following section has been added to the list of bands to avoid submitting:

"Metalcore, unless it's clearly more metal than core (e.g Shadows Fall, The Red Chord, Mastodon are OK: Avenged Sevenfold, Atreyu, Bullet For My Valentine are NOT). If you are uncertain, best avoid submitting metalcore bands altogether."

Note that it's possible that you find suspicious bands that should not be here. If you think a band falls under this category, you may report it through the usual channels. There are around 500 results for "metalcore" at the moment so the staff may not know about them all. That is no reason, however, to hysterically flag every band found under a search for "metalcore". Please be reasonable.

Thank you.
