The production -- masterminded by Dr. Dre but also helmed in large doses by Marky and Jeff Bass , along with Marshall himself -- mirrors his rhymes, with their spare, intricately layered arrangements enhancing his narratives, which are always at the forefront. As well they should be -- there are few rappers as wildly gifted verbally as Eminem.
Romantic Sad Sentimental. Sexy Trippy All Moods. Drinking Hanging Out In Love. Introspection Late Night Partying. Rainy Day Relaxation Road Trip. Romantic Evening Sex All Themes. Greetings, all! It's that time of the year again - time for our classic reviews challenge! This challenge is a time-honored tradition among our reviewers here. Every spring and every autumn, reviewers are encouraged to spend a week writing and submitting as many quality reviews as possible, with the aim to focus on albums with no reviews so far i.
Every day, the reviews submitted and accepted are tallied, so that participants can see how they compare with one another and whether or not, altogether, we've been able to surpass previous challenges' totals. There's no prizes or rewards except knowing that you've given a review to an album that didn't previously have one. There's also bragging rights for the most reviews, if that matters to you. Please read this thread for the rules and to discuss the challenge!
The challenge is named in memory of our friend Diamhea , a long-time contributor to the challenge and staff member here at Metal Archives, who sadly passed away on May 21, He was the first person to have ever written reviews for a single challenge! Everyone is welcome to participate - all you have to do is submit reviews as usual during that week. Looking forward to your participation! Over the past few months, the staff has had another look at the site's policy in regard to what constitutes a valid digital release specifically one needed for a band to be acceptable , attempting to further minimize the arguable special treatment of physical releases relative to digital ones.
Some of you may already have noticed that certain requirements have seen some loosening again considering newly approved bands, in particular when it comes to digital singles and production quality in general. We would now like to make certain things explicitly clear in this news post, highlighting two major changes. The list is not exhaustive and subject to expansion over time as we see fit.
Of course, downloadable releases from such sites are still valid; nothing has changed in that regard, but when it comes to streams, we want to stick to the more prominent, dedicated sites for now.
The basic requirements and guidelines are as follows: Ideally there should be multiple singles, although in the case of only one, moderator discretion can come into play considering things such as length, genre context and other factors.
Unique cover art is still essentially a must. Other considerations can provide some leeway here, such as the number of singles and general presentation. Please be sensible in distinguishing these from actual autonomous single releases again, unique cover art goes a long way towards making a case for an acceptable single, but it also depends on the way something is presented and promoted by the artist.
Updated sections for the rules covering these issues and more are in the works. Thank you. Please don't upload logo collages multiple logos in one image to band pages.
As many of you likely already gathered one way or another, the site isn't going anywhere. Happy April Fools' Day! However, the projects we linked to in the previous post are very much real and doing actual valuable work you can contribute to.
Happy crunching! As a result, the site will be taken offline completely effective EST today. We understand that for those of you currently under quarantine or engaging in social distancing, Metal Archives is now more important than ever, but even so it is the unanimous opinion of the owners, admins and the moderator team that the priorities are clear here.
We hope you can understand this decision, as it was not reached lightly. Thank you for your continued support and we hope to be back as soon as possible. If you would like to help shorten the downtime, be sure to check here , here and here for more information. Stay metal, safe and healthy! We've decided to make a change to the way we handle band appeals. While this method has served us well for the last decade, we realize that there's always room for improvement.
As a result, we have decided to dedicate a whole forum, the " Band Appeals " forum, to handling these requests. The way this new forum works is simple. Each band brought up gets its own thread see our example thread. Once a decision is rendered, it is FINAL until or if the band releases a new album, or new evidence comes up that shows it may qualify as acceptable under our rules. Before asking for an appeal, you are expected to do a search of the forums to see if the band has been previously brought up.
You are also expected to read our guidelines for how to make an appeal and what evidence we would need for it. Please note that duplicate threads for bands that already have threads will be closed. Likewise, we ask each user to limit the appeals they bring up to no more than a few per week. We hope this new system will make appeals easier and more streamlined for everyone.
Please remember to thoroughly read our guidelines on it. Yes, as most of you have figured, we're not really going to start filtering bands based on their subjective quality We instead remain committed to documenting every metal band in an encyclopedic fashion, as always.
Thank you all for your reactions, it was entertaining as usual. Happy April Fools' Day. Also, I must apologize for the taste in "good" metal of certain moderators.
