READ THIS ABOUT MISSING METAL ALBUMS

Apparently, Nuclear Blast (at which many Metal bands are signed) is in the process of revising their distributors. Many albums have been reported "missing".

 

I sent them a message, and received the following answers:

"Thank you for your message. We’re currently in the process of changing our distributors for all streaming services, so it might happen that albums disappear for a while. They should be available again within the next couple of days. If that is not the case, please let me know and I will see that they will be online again."

 

And later:

 

"Thank you for your message and your concern. There are about 40 Nuclear Blast albums missing from Spotify right now. But our colleagues at Nuclear Blast UK and the new distributor are working hard on making them available again. That should be the case within the next couple of days. That is unfortunately all the information I have so far. Should you still come across any missing albums after that, please let us know."

 

I've already asked what albums are left, but no reaction as of the time of writing this. I'll keep you posted.

This comes back every few years. Seriously, how hard can it be to renew the licenses before they expire? And if it is not the case of license.. why take down the albums at all in the first place?

 

As a paying customer I am very much not impressed.

Latest reply (yesterday):

 

"I don’t have a list of the albums unfortunately. But the goal is definitely to have all albums available again. There are no region restrictions happening, I believe that all European countries are affected by the distributor change at the moment."

Who are you talking to? Spotify? They don't have a saying in this.

Nuclear Blast? They don't attend this forum.

 

So, who? Just saying...

Those things are likely not as simple as they seem to be. It's also the case on all streaming platforms, not just Spotify, I'm afraid.
If you don't want to face this issue, then the only way is to buy the albums. Nobody will make your local library unavailable. ;)

 

@M_0_J_0 Thank you for bringing information about this here! :) I appreciate it.
It's also nice to hear they will be available for everyone (no restrctions).

Just venting myself, I tend to get upset when my fav albums go missing ;)

 

Also, it seems like the albums are back already (at least those that I've checked).

I understand. :) I also don't like it when my favourite content becomes unavailable.

Glad to hear they are back for you!
