I'd go as far as say that we not only can add bands with only one definite metal album, but actually there's no reason whatsoever to keep them out of the archives. As said above, the trouble with KC is to decide if theirs is actually such a case. Well, I don't think the point is if they're metal enough but proto-metal enough.

RED is definitly a metal album.



uh, NO, Red has 2 songs that could be seen as metal.  Starless, Fallen Angel, One More Red Nightmare and Providence are NOWHERE near being metal, proto- or otherwise

One More Red Nightmare is certainly proto-metal

It's so damn avant and experimental though, and has so many traits that back then constituted a major Shocked (aka metal)

I think THRAK and The ConstruKction of Light might pass as avant or alternative metal, maybe, if the 70s albums aren't proto enough.

True, but not as much as the proto team's colabs. If it goes to the avant team, then its all you (and your fellow collabs)

That much, I can guarantee, will not happen.  If the decision is made that King Crimson belongs in proto-prog, I will accept that and not complain even once, but frankly there is no way ANYBODY could legitimately believe they belong in avant-metal.

That's perfectly acceptable LOL
I'm no avant-metal expert, I just thought Thrak and TCoL were rather experimental and "out-there"

Something can be somewhat avant without being metal

I'm not arguing with you, I was just pointing out my thought process. Your experience with the genre is obviously far greater than mine, and therefore you have a more "educated" say on whether KC is avant-metal or not.

I think we should just let the proto team puzzle this over
