Requests for The Guardians Releases / Bands to be added to Metal Academy

These guys have ten albums, so they can wait: Keydragon.  I may consider making a worst metal albums ever list, but that won't be for a while so I can wait.

Hi, Ben, could Chaos Control (JPN) be added?

Quoted Morpheus Kitami

Happy to do so, but they're not on RYM. Metal Archives has them listed as Power / Speed. Can you comment on whether that's accurate? In other words, should they be in both The Guardians and The Pit?

That seems mostly accurate, I suspect if people talked about them, there would be some conversation on whether they constitute that or power/thrash.

(this only applies to the full-length, no idea about the EP from 20 years ago)

Could the strangely niche album The Alchemists released by Liquid Note Records be added please? It's not all metal but there's enough tracks that are Guardians/Neoclassical shredfests that it earns its place among the other guitar shredder albums. 

RYM link below as the album is quite difficult to find.

Sorry Xephyr, but we're not adding Various Artists releases to Metal Academy at this point. I may review that decision at some point.
