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!

Sounds like a mix of Tesseract, Porcupine Tree, and The Ocean. Mixed by Julien Fehlmann (The Ocean), mastered by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna), surround sound mix by Bruce Soord (Pineapple Thief). Full album is complete, just waiting on the physical printing.

Ambient Black Metal band from Askim, Norway. Formed in 2015 they have released one full-length album in 2016 called ´The Force Of The Ancient Land´. The cover art, ethereal ambience and production caught my attention and make it a great package all together.
Here is a link to their full debut album, have a listen:

Omega Monolith are a very unique band, with great care and vision towards the music they are producing and they not just deserve to be on Metal Storm, they deserve the world.
A listen to any of their works would tell you more than anything I could write here.

They have just released their latest album "You Call The Wolf, You Get The Pack!" It is pretty interesting, good drumming, nice riffs, and good lyrics too.
