Nuclear Blast unavailable

Since yeterday I'm not able to play most of Nuclear Blast albums. The error message is either "song is unavailable" or "song is unavailable in your country". This includes all Eluveitie albums, Toumas Holopainen - Lise and times of Scrooge, and probably some others (finding them as we speak, Epica seems fine, if their Spotofy collection is rather small, if it should include most of their albums, they're gone for me as well - I don't have them saved in my library, so I can't even see them enymore).

Can anyone tell me what is going on?

 

BTW, my country is Poland.

 

EDIT: inb4 clear chache: tried Windows client, android and web player. All the same.

This might be a regions listening issue with the label? Also sometimes things come back in a few days so keep an eye out in case this is just licensing expiring and awaiting the renewals to come through. Although I do not have the time to do a look up of all that material or I might be able to narrow some of it down.

 

All music made available to the spotify service is up to the labels, artists, and/or their representatives. Please go and have a read over on this detailed post here

point 5 covers about the issue with missing music/artists. Thank you!

Same here, 'half' of the playlist missing, all Dimmu Borgir, two latest Behemoth albums, Carnival is Forver from Decapitated (tho Blood Mantra just popped in). Spotify seems quite unstable with it's music database. I can understand some albums or bands never appearing in Spotify in the first place (Tool, for starters) but being taken off?

Spotify adds all music available to them. Unfortunately, sometimes the artist/label don’t want certain tracks/album on
spotify, which is why they can’t be found.

 

You can read more about missing music in the
music FAQ.
Take particular note of the fifth point.

Thanks for moving the topic to a different forum, obviously this is us needing some kind of help...

 

I'll pay attention to point 7 instead - Remove premium subscription until Spotify and Nuclear Blast get their **bleep** together and decide that they want people's money.

@OviiiOne

Someone not wanting certain tracks/albums on spotify is understandable when the decision is made before hand. It's not understandable when half of your playlist on premium account dissappears! I stopped my premium account few months ago and was intending to renew it starting January, but won't do that, because I lost my trust in this service

 

I've been paying Spotify subscription also because of access to music from bands or albums that are now gone. I can't help to have a feeling that at least part of that money I paid to spotify is now wasted and I have to go and purchase all those missing albums from other services or shops. Could have done that in the first place!

 

It's ok when service as Spotify has a limited database with some bands or labels not participating in it at all. You see what you get before you pay any money. Removing already existing music is completely different and turns Spotify into really poor service. And is also sort of a cheat

Turns out this is region based thing, which makes it even worse. All albums I'm missing are still available in Ireland/UK region
