It has been stated many times that we're not about to feature every single metal band that has ever existed. Usually we only add already accomplished bands with at least one full-length release. Still, many bands escape our attention, so it's up to you to tell us which of them are the most worthy of being featured on Metal Storm.
Bands listed here are suggested for addition by our users. You can vote for these bands as well as provide additional comments - both of which will be taken into account when we look for the next band to feature on Metal Storm. If the band is not in the list, you can suggest it here (you need to be a registered member).
Make sure you also check the Blacklisted bands - these are the bands we're not going to add at all, since we feel they won't be appropriate for this website. Yes, some non-metal bands are already featured here, but that's not the reason to add a lot more - so we don't accept arguments like "hey, this band is way more metal than band X you have featured!".

A very heavy technical prog metal and screamo band from the United States that have become very well known since the release of As The Roots Undo, their second album.
The next unreleased album contains the tracks Ritual of Names parts 1 and 2. These have a very prog and doomy feel to them.

Wouldn't call it doom really, just post-hardcore/screamo. Which isn't really metal. Nevertheless this one has LOTS of grindcore elements in it so I guess they have a place here, about as much as any hardcore band featured already. And also awesome band!

Omainen was formed in 2001 as a band of friends willing to do metal together. At first doing old school heavy metal in the vein of Iron Maiden, they rapidly evolved in a power/speed metal band with progressive influence. The second demo "The Death of the Nations" released in 2006 pushed the band to ever improve both technically and musically.
In 2009, the third demo "Routes to Nowhere" (recorded by François Ugarte) saw the musical orientation of the band heading to progressive thrash. This demo was very well received.
The band is currently writing material for their first full length album.

When we founded Destitution in 2007 we had only one purpose in mind: creating old-school Thrash Metal without losing sight of melody, variation and composition. In the past each of us participated in various Thrash Metal bands, so we were no strangers to the scene. After writing and rehearsing for some years we recorded our first promo in 2009.
In 2011 a three-piece concept EP called 'The Human Error' emerged. It was recorded by Jörg Uken at the Soundlodge Studios in Germany and features spectacular artwork by the American artist Lee Gaskins. It was very well received by both the critics and the public.
In 2013 we returned to the Soundlodge Studios to record our debut album called 'Beware The Fury Of The Patient Man'. It contains ten songs and the lyrical concept addresses the lack of humanity in these modern days where money and technology prevail above all else. This is also reflected in the stunning handmade artwork by British artist Dan Capp. The releasedate has been set to 12 May 2014.

Swans-like, but then with more metal. Fronted by noise icon Mark Solotoroff (Bloodyminded) and includes (ex)members of Tortoise, Wolves in the Throne Room and Indian. Their most recent album "Ciphers + Axioms" can be listened to at bandcamp. I highly suggest it if you like Swans.

Best described as crafting melodic rock metal, Montreal outfit Kolony believes in doing things a little differently.
Boldly combining elements of old school metal, NWBHM, modern metal and rock, the band loves fast tempos, melodic vocals and all-around high-octane music with each track coming from the heart and reflecting the way its members think about the world.
Setting out to write a full-length album at the start of 2013, Kolony arrived at its latest record, Sledge due out later this year.
Suffice it to say, heavy metal fans along with the new generation of metalheads and mainstream rock fans will all be able to find themselves in the music of Sledge.

Formed in 2008, the band released their first EP Everlasting Journey in 2009.
Releasing their first full length album in 2011, Vortex of Clutter performed many live gigs both in Turkey and other countries and received good critical reception and comments from the metal community.

Swedish no-holds-barred heavy thrashers Carnal Agony unleash debut album with Helloween/Masterplan drummer Uli Kusch and producer Ronny Milianowicz Album 'Preludes & Nocturnes' and official video due to be on NOVEMBER 14,2014.
Drawing influences from the likes of Metallica, Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate, In Flames and Testament and devoted to classic literature such as HP Lovecraft, John Milton and Edgar Allan Poe (often inspiring their lyrics), Carnal Agony are the latest sensation in the Scandinavian Metal Scene with their incendiary blend of pounding thrash metal, memorable melodies and meaningful lyrics.

With a line-up of accomplished musicians from bands such as Dark Fortress, Naglfar, and Empyrium, Eudaimony certainly does not restrain from traversing a wide range of musical territories; ultimately, their style can perhaps be best described as a unique approach of doom metal with black metal, post-metal, and atmospheric/alternative rock elements.
Eudaimony was formed in July 2007 by Matthias Jell (vocals/ex-Dark Fortress) and Marcus E. Norman (guitars/Naglfar, Bewitched, Havayoth, Ancient Wisdom). They were later joined by Jörg Heemann (drums/Ex-Secrets of the Moon, Ex-The Vision Bleak) and Peter Honsalek (viola & piano/Ex-Nachtreich). Their music was conceived to be genre-defying with a looming atmosphere of abysmal emotions that reflect the bleak worldview of the band members.
The band recorded their debut album "Futile" in 2013, which was released by German label Cold Dimensions on November 29th, 2013.
In 2014 two more members joined the hearse, namely Patrik Hellström (Bass/Bloodline) and Markus "Ulf Theodor Schwadorf" Stock (Guitars, Synthesizer & Programming/Empyrium, The Vision Bleak, Sun of the Sleepless, Noekk).
A 2nd album can be expected sometime around 2015.
(P.S. This is my first time suggesting a band, sorry if I sounded like a music journalist or a label A&R lol.)

The band uses experimental elements of industrial, ambient, cyber/electro, groove, gothic doom and death metal. The band has released 3 LPs 'Unnatural & Wrong' (2008), 'Zero-Gravity' (2011) and 'Oblivion Machine' (2013). The album artworks were created by Alexey 'Gutalin' Kozhanov, a concept artist who worked on the 2012 film 'Prometheus'.
