For this King Crimson album, it's labeled as 'Metal Related' when The Power to Believe is one of their heaviest albums. I think it fits more into Prog metal or industrial metal Tongue

What does everyone else think?

None of King Crimson's albums are full-blown metal.  Power To Believe is too late to be considered proto-metal like their earlier albums, even though it is heavier than any of them (likewise with Thrak)

This album and some of their others were actually quite heavily debated a long time ago and if I recall correctly some of them did get put in the prog metal sub or maybe avant-garde at one point.


I'm not sure exactly when they ended up being moved out of those subs again. I don't know those albums myself so I can't comment but I know they're not generally considered to be metal. I expect their tagging is fine as it is.

I think the early releases belong in proto and the rest in metal-related. None of their albums are what I would call "metal", but they are here because of the major impact they´ve had on the genre.

Ask away Thumbs Up Not everything seem logical on MMA, and there is usually a reason it isn´t.
 
The first couple of MMA years metal-related releases couldn´t be reviewed, and therefore it was very important, that it was only proto releases that were reviewable in the case of King Crimson. The same with artists with only a limited number of metal releases in their disco. Thankfully that has been changed now and all releases can be reviewed.
 
Sometimes the line was a bit blurred like with Porcupine Tree, which really isn´t a metal act, but we felt they belonged here anyway and to be able to let people review their releases, some of them were tagged progressive metal.
 
The site needs some cleaning up because of that old situation.
