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!

Michał Łapaj, keyboardist of Polish Progressive Rock/Metal trio, Riverside, has recently announced that he will be starting his own solo project in 2016, with more information to be given on his newly created facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/michallapajofficial . Just like Mariusz Duda's invisible MS profile Lunatic Soul, I reckon Michał Łapaj deserves his own band profile.

"Drowning Horse sounded the way a band called Drowning Horse ought to sound. They were a hellish black stallion with a belly full of lead, sinking into a vat of thick, molten, death… and they were very fucking loud. Bowel-splitting doom drones shook the young earth's crust, Thor-like drumming set avalanches tumbling and aggrieved vocal growls seemed to summon storm clouds overhead; needless to say, Drowning Horse aren't for the faint of heart, but they should make any aficionado of heaviness giddy with glee. Drowning Horse will bruise you all over. And you will enjoy it." - Lyndon Blue, Cool Perth Nights

They make a gothic metal different.
The inspiration of Dark Letter is a music that oscillates around the broadly defined gothic. Sometimes rock/metal intersperse with sounds of horror music. Lyrics tell about violence, fear, despair and craving. Erich Fromm said that evil is not only human, but it is also tragic. These words could describe the conception of Dark Letter's world.

A Long Island prog metal band that's been around since 2007. They released a well received EP Revitalized back in 2009 which garnered the band quite a bit of buzz in the prog scene. They are finally coming out with their debut album 'The Ordeal' this year on October 28. Their style of prog metal is very much in the vein of Between the Buried and Me.

Synergy Protocol: The unity in a set of regulations.
Yes, my dear readers, we are talking about yet another Dutch female fronted metal band. But… this time we are talking about a truely progressive metal band with an 80'ies twist. Unlike so many other female fronted bands these days, Synergy Protocol first and foremost affiliates with bands like Dream Theater, Symphony X, Queensrÿche, Opeth and Ayreon.

They are an up and coming band who just released a killer debut album. The debut already seems very mature, is all killer and no filler, and is creating a lot of attention with almost 60,000 views on Youtube. They are having a rocking start to their career and it will be exciting to hear what they will show us in the future.

26.09.2016 - Witch Meadow
Rhode Island's WITCH MEADOW fought tooth and nail through the '90s during a period where heavy metal was no longer the powerhouse genre it had been the previous decade. The fact that they were isolated from the influential New York and New Jersey metal scenes helped the group craft tunes that successfully merged styles without fear of outside pressure.
Even with the deck stacked against them, WITCH MEADOW were still able to deliver two amazing independent releases: 1995's When Midnight Falls and 1997's Down Eternity's Hall. Featuring equal bits of classic metal and early power metal combined with a hard rock crunch akin to vintage Mötley Crüe, WITCH MEADOW were definitely forging their own path. The band also had the habit of inviting their die-hard local fans to their practice space to watch them perform due to a lack of local venues supporting heavy metal acts. The group always found a way to get their music heard

Cuz they play a really good southern rock-tinged death/doom with supremely epic riffage. Oh and one of the guys in the band is named Sir Gusmo Husmo Chusmo. Now thats metulll! \m/

New supergroup featuring members of Mastadon, Alice In Chains, Dillinger Escape Plan, (ex) The Mars Volta and Dethklok. This band is kind of heavy and with this line-up, it should definitely be featured on MetalStorm.
