The original post

We now have the opportunity to style an album rather than adding a style to the band.

Example: Kreator is a thrash metal band, but since two of their albums were gothic metal, they also had the gothic style tag as a band. Now their style is ONLY thrash and the two albums in question from the late 90's are styled gothic.

If you come across an album which is not the 'normal' style for a band - please report it below. (see the Kreator example)

So now Voivod influences are death metal? I'll remember that.

Just some and by far not enough to warrant calling Carbonized technical thrash.

Yeah, Voivod influence. Diskord and Gorguts could also be examples of Voivod-style influenced death metal. Either way Carbonized are not thrash.

Also Obliteration has influences from VoiVod and certainly are totally death metal and not thrash.

Disharmonization has just as much death/grind as it does thrash. In Screaming Machines they do away with the extreme influences and focus on prog thrash and avantgarde.

Present an alternative - the core principle of criticism is the suggestion of improvements, otherwise you're simply complaining.

The criticism is that it's definitely not thrash; work from there. In my opinion death, grind and avant-garde make up this band from Disharmonization, and much of the death and grind elements are lost on the most recent record.

You would sum up the most recent record as avantgarde metal?

Probably a mixture and avant-garde metal and rock.

OK @ ALL ..... the reason why we implemented the album style feature is so that the band style will NOT be changed fifty thousand times when a band releases an 'out of style' album. Please, don't change the band styles around if you feel album x is not their usual.
