21:46 - Erik M. ...so that at least all references are in the same FILE, but not on the same sheet. Changing all that is way too time-consuming, so I just accept it's not possible. Or at least, I don't think it's possible.
21:40 - Erik M. To answer your questions, I tried to change the cell references. I like all my references in one sheet, and I don't want references in another file. So now I just copy the sheet I want + reference sheet to the file...
21:36 - Erik M. No, I have lots of different files with mass balances of different process configurations. Sometimes I need to combine sheets from different files, which at first I had problems with, but now not so much anymore.
21:27 - Erik M. Well, I work with Excel a lot as well for my job, so I've already learned a lot. But seeing as I'm a process engineer, I'm not sure whether you could help me. I mainly set up mass balances in Excel and do lots of calculations.
21:25 - Jaeryd17 What kind of formula changes are you trying to make? Changing the reference to a different file name, or just changing cell references?
21:13 - Zaphod Jooe, [link] You'll probably like this.
21:04 - Erik M. Well, those #DIV/0 can be undone though, but once a cell has #REF! in it, you're screwed unless you didn't save the file, because a simple Crtl + Z doesn't undo it, hahaha. And don't get me started on those circular references...
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!

Attempting to find innovation or bands that can 'one up' the current masters within the confines of power or traditional heavy metal is like trying to kill yourself in a single round of Russian Roulette. Chances are, that bullet is not going to air out your brains and offer you the sweet release you deserve. Iron Fate is a German band, thus arguably originating out of the heartland of this sub-genre, and they've managed to remain on the straight path since their foundation 5 years ago. They put out a demo, shopped it around, and got a deal through Massacre Records. Unfortunately, they're one of those five empty rounds in the chamber, with no projectile force to offer here, and their debut, Cast in Iron is all too quickly forgotten on the road to better listening.
As I've noted, Iron Fate play power metal, but they do not engage in the manner of fast paced, anthemic noodling maintained by bands like Gamma Ray, Helloween, or DragonForce. They are also not some simple clone of Judas Priest, Maiden or Accept. The singer Denis Brosowki's got a fairly distinct voice, clear and penetrating but also fairly constrained. He's got as much of a Biff Byford spin as a Dickinson, Tate, or Dio, and he performs pretty well in both the softer and heavier material the band has written. But he's simply not being backed up by memorable enough music for it all to matter. Most of the songs are extremely simple, chugged or basic chord patterns which remind me a little of Halford's solo albums, or the US band Holy Mother, except just not as catchy. The songs very quickly become torture to listen through, not because they're ever 'bad', but because you just never get the payoff you need from a band like this.
The album cover hints at a little magic, a little mystique as this bizarre construct stretches itself forth from the constraints of the Earth. Ironically, the music offers almost none of this mystery. The guitar riffs groove and meander along without many good hooks; the chords anchored in largely predictable patterns that hardly mete out the level of aggression and energy that the singer's voice deserves. At the best, they pull off a track like "Killer Instinct" where some tolling percussive samples and Heathen-like vocal processing (think "Hypnotized") attempt to distract from the lackluster rhythm guitars. Brosowski soars over "Rage in a Cage" and "Lightning Bolt" with a suitable charisma, but you still can't wait for them to be over. In fact, the first few tracks on this album blow by so unconvincingly that I found nothing at all to grab the attention span until the second half of the album! "War in the Streets" is probably the most powerful track, as the lyric rhythms and bouncing, forward riffs feel the most fluid.
When you're in this market, I cannot stress just how much you need the giant hooks, the incredibly satisfying vocal lines and the feeling of uplifting, esoteric power of classic heavy metal music, culled from decades of trial and error. Iron Fate have the talent in the front, they've got a good production standard with some fairly crushing tones, and they do nothing to really offend the listener, but they simply lack a 'Killer Instinct' of their own. A killer application. Metalium or Primal Fear might occasionally draw a tear in my eye as I cringe from the high pitched air raid siren vocals screaming beautiful melodies off into the night. I might feel my heart pulse unto the precipice of bursting. At their best, they can reduce the listener AND the playing field to mere ashes. With Cast in Iron, it feels more like being walked than hitting that essential home run that will have the traditional 'bangers throwing horns and dashing their brains out with that lovely, final bullet of inspiration.

Ask any artist to reveal their most important ingredients for success, and you are guaranteed to find creative freedom near the top of the list. Thus it has proved for Sixx:A.M, a band comprised of Nikki Sixx, DJ Ashba and James Michael have formed a creative collective characterized by a free-spirited, artistically pure approach and genuinely diverse musical influences. That wide-winged philosophy resulted in the band's third album, the alluringly titled Modern Vintage, which offers both billion-dollar choruses, and nods to great bands from the 70s like Queen, Bowie, T. Rex and Sweet. It is a record that represents the culmination of seven years of collaboration between three friends who, in the beginning, didn't even really want to start a band…

Solitary Sabred is a Power Metal band. Released full length albums in 2009 and 2014.
Solitary Sabred were formed by Jimmys Demetriou (guitars - the only surviving original member) in the year 2000 and went through several member changes up to the year 2004 when he left Cyprus to continue his studies abroad, leaving behind some rehearsal demos from that era. The basic structure of some of the band's songs (like "The Trojan Hero" for instance), dates back to those days.

Lostpray is a band which was founded in 2013 in Odessa/Ukraine, but its story dates back to 2002 in Istanbul/Turkey. It started as three friends from school who had one thing in common and that was to make music. Burak Gundogdu, Tufan Cigdem and Erkan Kaya would meet after school, sometimes at studios, sometimes at their homes and would play all the songs they were crazy about (Metallica, Iced Earth, Megadeth etc.). After living their high school periods like this, they had to separate as Erkan Kaya and Tufan Cigdem had to leave Istanbul due to their University education. Even though they were no longer playing together, they all continued to make their own music.
In 2013, Tufan Cigdem joined the singing contest "The Voice of Ukraine". He successfully made it to the quarter finals, after he was eliminated Tufan had won back his self confidence because he just proved to himself and all the people around him that he had what it took to become a rock singer. Tufan decided to contact his friend Burak and shared the idea of getting the band together to start making their own music professionally. Burak who already had a few tunes ready that he had written himself, and had been working on for years, seized the opportunity and moved to Ukraine, leaving everything behind.
After Burak moved to Ukraine, Tufan and two of his friends Eduard Bykovets and Sergey Alyabyev started working on their album at Eduard's home studio. Due to financial reasons Eduard and Sergey had to leave the band. After this small incident Vyacheslav Babienko (bass guitar player) and Nikolay Dovdopolov (drummer) joined the band forming the last lineup. Since then they recorded 8 tracks for their album "That's Why" and played in a few local bars and in a special event hosted by Turkish Airlines.

The band was established by the lead guitarist Libor Kukula, whose aim was to perform contemporary metal music, which would be based on rough guitar riffs, strong melodies and overall colourfulness. Initially, the idea was to present purely guitar music, but gradually, the tracks were developed and keyboards parts were added.

What do a german icehockey team and a swiss rockband have in common? Much more than one might think. It's the wild image for example. The tough pace. The enjoyment.
This has just has been the case with MAXXWELL and EHC Freiburg. Already „equipped" with some success, the band now has written the official stadium-anthem for the ambitious club from southern Germany.
The song is called „Slapshot" and can be found on the EP of the same name, which will be released in the middle of October 2012. The song fits perfectly for hockeysports. It's rocking hard, direct, straightforward and regardless of losses. The song is a declaration of love for icehockey and is reflecting the friendly relationship between the five musicians and the club.
On „Slapshot" there are also three other brandnew songs by MAXXWELL that will give you a taste of the bands third album that will be released in 2013. Since four songs isn't that much of an album, the band also put three livesongs on their new disc that are already known as MAXXWELL-classics. Value for money - just as always in the case of MAXXWELL.
PS. We also recommend the videoclip. It was shot together with the EHC Freiburg. So you just can't say that MAXXWELL is not skating on thin ice…

Infinity's Call is a 4 piece hardrock band from Ulm, Germany consisting of members already having good names in the rock szene.
In 2004 the band dropped the first CD „Light in the Dark" on the market, which generated quite a buzz and good sales figures for a self release. The next years the band toured and also saw some line up changes.
Now Infinity's Call is complete again and recorded a new album entitled „Unconditional"
Melodic yet heavy, diverse although consistend sounding.
You'll find groovy mid-tempo hard rock songs and fast melodic metal songs side by side on this album.
Always with the extra amount of musicality and creativity which makes for good rock music. In the spirit of the eighties yet alive and fresh sounding - crowned by hooky choruses and majestic harmonies.
A timeless hard rock album which revives the spirit of an era.

REKLAW should be added to this website because, the band has created 14 albums (EP's and Full Length combined) spanning from amateurish garage recordings to "high quality" black metal. Also, the band has also been posted on metal-archives.com, so it only makes sense for metalstorm to do. The band also just recently signed to a record label, so it is not just some small unknown independent artist.
