Thanks for all suggestions. Your first point I knew, but was too lazy to type 
it. It made no difference for the test files had all tags. Knowing that it 
was not a asynchrous thing helped me a lot though. There had to be something 
wrong with the command line for metaflac. 

It turned out that some flac files have tags like Artist=artistname and others 
have artist=artistname. Therefore it couldn't find the artist! So now I just 
look for 'rtist=' which works great.

Thanks for all the help!
