Have you ever wondered why you cannot find your favorite rock and metal bands on Spotify? Were they banned? Did they not want to start it? Despite popular belief, Spotify does not include all songs from all artists.
Due to circumstances beyond Spotify’s control, Spotify does not catalog all music bands in the world. This problem emerges from different factors. However most important one is: “Spotify has come under scrutiny for how it pays recording artists.” This may be the main reason for bands which not want to join Spotify. Maybe there are other problems.
We assume that Spotify put too much effort into solving this problem. Led Zeppelin and Tool were finally allowed to add their music on Spotify. There are a lot of bands whose albums do not list on Spotify.
Dismember Swedish metal band considered among the most popular 4 Swedish metal bands. Despite their popularity, none of their albums are available on Spotify. Luckily, users can listen to Dismember some of the songs cuts on Spotify. Those songs are:

Until they solve the problem, you can listen to We are the Becoming songs below!
