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!

Metal/space rock combo, sounding sometimes like Iron Maiden, sometimes like Hawkwind. There seems to be some confusion over the origin of the band: Some claim they are Norwegian, but this mistake probably rests on the fact that their eponymous album was released on a small Norwegian label. Most recent release is Archives (Moon, 1994), a 72-minute, 13-song collection of unreleased and remastered songs 1989-92. Also appears on the compilation album Woronzoid (Woronzow Records, March 1989).

The thrash metal monster The Outer Limits was spawned at the shores of the Black Sea in 2008. The current line-up is George "Peich"-vocals, The Policeman-bass, Dave-drums, Jelyazko "Holt"-lead guitar, Dancho-rhythm guitar. All of the members have previous experience in their favorite style (thrash metal). Most of the band members have played in the previous incarnations of The Outer Limits, namely Outrage and Hlebarka, the latter being one of the thrash metal pioneers in Burgas in the 90s and late 80s. A two-track demo was recorded in 2009 which is available on the band's Reverbnation profile. 2009 marks the first live appearance of the band as The Outer Limits. Since then, the band has played numerous gigs and is considered as one of the most proficient and promising thrash metal acts in the area. The style of The Outer Limits could be described as pure oldschool thrash metal in the vein of the Bay Area thrash. Lyrically, the band is also a typical thrash metal oriented, stressing on topics like death, war, suicide and metal supremacy. Currently The Outer Limits are working on their first album, containing songs such as "Bonded by Metal","Apocalypto","Freedom is a Dirty Word","Suicide","The Holocaust of Dreams", "World Metal Domination" and few more in works. Prepare yourself for the mind blowin' thrash of The Outer Limits. Long live OLDSCHOOL THRASH METAL!

This band from Ontario, Canada really pack a punch. Their style is mostly melodic death metal combined with clean vocals and some progressive elements. Their riffs and overall sound has something mezmerizing in my opinion, definetly worth checking out!

Band with some national recognition in the portuguese metal scene in the 90', they started in 1992 and disbanded in 2002, leaving two studio albuns. The style was doom with gothic elements. With time, the gothic elements surpassed and the band was heavily defined by that genre. Still today, they are referred as one of the best bands of doom/gothic in the decade in Portugal. Unfortunately there's few sources of info (myspace page is one of them and even this is not totally trustful: the discography is fine, the biography is from some american band with the same name) but the facebook page seems good source (https://www.facebook.com/inhumanportugal). The band reunited in 2007/8 to split up again in 2011.

Below is a link to that very album on Youtube.

They sound much like Angel Witch and have been getting their name out abit in the British metal scene. They've played with Angel Witch as well as about to also play with Grim Reaper and Trouble in the near future. Would any of these links not be good enough for you to have 'em on?
