Time = ~15-25 Minutes ?

There are some albums which are borderline like Vulcano debut...tough question.

It depends on what the band or label calls it Very Happy
There are "albums" with a length of 20-25 minutes and mCDs with a length of more than 30-40 minutes...

I'd say it most often depends on the number of songs.

I think originally it defines through the playing time ! But through the years I think people and bands got so confused and mixed it up all the time. Many 7" are named EPs even when there are only 2 songs on it where it was originally a "Single" !
It also depends on the bands I guess, I mean a doom band doing 70 minutes albums can name their 40 minutes record an EP I guess Very Happy

It's actually whether it falls under the 28 minute mark. That constitutes a full length release.

Obviously a grind band can have 80 songs in 2 minutes and someone like Burzum can have 4 songs that run an hour.

The first two Deicide albums, 'Reign In Blood' etc are good examples of albums that just get over the line.

Releasing a mini album that runs for longer than 27 minutes offers good value for fans... assuming it is cheaper than a full length...

A lot of recording contracts set 45 minutes as minimum album time.

Reverend Bizarre released a 65 min+ EP no? It really depends on how the band calls it I guess.

We had some talk about this matter when I did the CRUCIFIXION WOUNDS MCD ! The mainman wanted it to be called a fullenght even when it is only 27 minutes. But because of The oath of black blood being so short and being an album too he wanted it to be an album. But on the other hand it should be sold for a MCD price. So when I would have traded this as a fullenght other labels would have sold this for fullenght price too ! Even when I would have sold this at MCD price. So in the end we decided to name it a MCD Very Happy
Quite confusing I know !

I want to get quality over quantity. 15 minutes of excellent music is better than 15 minutes of decent music + 30 minutes of fillers.
