I was pretty much on schedule with making the new edition, but there has been a minor setback... sorry for the bad news, but while making the introduction text and looking for videos I decided that there are some aspects of Metal that are too dark to show here on ArmorGames.

Therefor, Death and Black Metal are off the table and won't be featured in this edition. Even though there are several major bands in this category that has a great part of Metal in general, and I'm sure there are a few people who will be dissapointed, I think that some bands simply shouldn't be exposed to 13+ year old children coming here to play games.

Work continues, but with some additional new Group Stage to put together. =)

Well that's a shame =(

Also...is Math Metal going to be a category? If not..where will Meshuggah be categorized? (I'm assuming you have them in the contest..for obvious reasons)

Meshuggah is in allright... can't you figure out where they are filed under? =P

And Death/Black is simply not suitable for 13+ gaming kids here... surely you understand. ;)

Aw shoot! Does that mean Arch Enemy and Amon Amarth are out of race, or does the fact some consider it melodeath save their candidature?

@ HahiHa : You were the first name that came to mind when I decided to extract that group from the competition. Sorry... both bands are off the table. Just hope you will participate nontheless? =)

@ pangtongshu : Meshuggah is actually "Progressive Metal". They play a fusion of Extreme Metal, fast-tempo Death Metal, Thrash Metal and Progressive Metal with Jazz Fusion elements. Even though they have a lot of labels/genres (as do a LOT of bands in the Metal scene), I decided they are best suited in this genre as a whole. Those that wish to dispute, please wait untill the competition starts, ok? ;)

Allright, to keep the updates rolling in and inform everyone, here's the latest... =)

Whilst Death/Black Metal has been erased, it has been replaced with another Group, though I'll keep it a mystery for now... love having me some mystery around the competition! Heheh...

Fixed the new Template for the new Group taking the place for Death/Black Metal and I'm half way through making the Group introductions now. No fixed date for launch yet, but I'm still working harder than ever to get this forged quickly!

Just to provide some idea to those that are a little impatient, here's what I have on my checklist... =P

Amon Amarth

Surely they are appropriate?
I always classified them as melodeath anyway.

:(

So, no more grindcore? What about doom metal? Sludge metal? D:

Why is Amon Amarth taken out?! It's mostly about vikings anyway. Haha. Glad to see this is alive though.
