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!

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'.

I think Naakhum should be on Metal Storm because it's a quite unique metal project, although just have 2 LP and some EP's and Singles, it's a one-man band which created a unique sound influenced by Black Metal, and which demonstrates how is this genre of metal is evolving, by adding instruments used by native people or aborigines Naakhum invented a new style of Music which doesn't just fit in the most orthodox genres due to it's alternating sound, a song may be pure neofolk similar to Wardruna, other Aborigine and a third could be raw black metal, although the vocals are not typical from black metal, the artist uses the throat singing.

Because it's one of the few upcoming black metal bands from Québec (french-speaking part of Canada) and the music shows a departure from the whole " métal noir québécois " scene that is highly active around here. Features a member of Chthe'ilist which is already on the website.
