Please make sure you submit to the right folder! Many people are just submitting to the After Forever folder rather than choosing the right category. This just makes a lot of work for the admins.

Also, please note that bands such as Amaranthe, Evanescence, Lacuna Coil should go in the Similar Bands folder. You can find a list of similar bands under Group Info.

HI! Welcome to symphonic-metal. Feel free to post your symphonic metal-related fanart, photos, and blog about your concert experiences, meeting of any band members etc. :headbang:

:bulletblack: Remember to submit only symphonic metal related or inspired work.

:bulletblack: Similar genres are also acceptable eg. metal, gothic rock, darkwave, alt rock etc. But these should go into the "similar genres" folder. If you're unsure what genre a band is, check wikipedia.

:bulletblack: Submit all work into the proper categories. Failure to do so will result in your image being rejected. If this happens, you may resubmit to the proper category.

:bulletblack: New band categories will be created depending on how much work has been submitted related to said bands.

:bulletblack: Do not submit band photos (promotional or otherwise) that do not belong to you, unless you have edited them in some way and you credit the original source. It should be edited enough that it is strongly distinguishable from the original photo, not just changing the colour or adding writing.

:bulletblack: If you don't have anything to submit and you just want to join to watch, discuss or lurk, that's fine too!

:bulletblack: Be civil, obviously. No flaming/spamming/trolling/tantrums or being a general douche to other members.

:bulletblack:Last but not least, no Nightwish singer arguments.

If you have any questions, comments or ideas, send a note or comment!
