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!".

The Utopia is a quintet of Roma to their first job . The rilsultato fusion of various genres and musical influences , from metal to progressive , to the fusion, is the debut Ice and knives .
Prerogative of the band is to highlight the melodic aspect of each of the tracks on the disc , always seeking the most complete musicality in both instrumental parts in those sung , not afraid to experiment with new sounds and styles .

Born in the first days of 2011, The Forgotten prisoners are an Italian band located in Rome. Since its first lineup, the project target has always been to create a prog-like original sound by mixing the various musical influences of the band members. Via a wise mash-up of the best contributions of each of the musicians, the TFP sound was created shortly after the band creation. This type of sound managed to survive the various line-ups that played in the project - the result is something that must be heard to be judged fully.
At the same time of the technical and musical building, there also was the lyrics, theme and mood construction. This was absolutely a priority for the project, 'cause it was tightly embedded within the very name of the band. The Forgotten Prisoners are all who are left alone, solitary and unhelped, due to their political or religious beliefs, often apart from the common creed of their society. Every one can be a prisoner of someone or something, and each and every one can be forgotten by somebody, or being assumed as dead and simply disappear, for the personal purposes of a few individuals who can control power and people for their own objectives. This type of imprisonment can, though, also be self-inflicted as a punishment or revenge towards the society or the loved ones: and who is being forgotten by himself is not able to see past his jail - to break free and think without hindrance with his own ideas, one has to walk, unassisted, past his very prison walls.
'Cause in the end, everyone of us fights alone.

VIVID REMORSE don't exist anymore, the band split in 2014, but they were considered, after Angelus apatrida, Crisix and Aggression, the most important thrash metal band in Spain, and the most original for sure. They don't have webpage or bandcamp anymore (both pages were deleted by one of his memebers) but you can listen to the two albums they released on Spotify: The seed of malaise (2010) and Down to the wire (2012), this one released by Art gate records label.
The made around 100 gigs in Spain and also a 8-date tour in Mexico in February 2014 (the last gig of the tour suporting Havok in Mexico DF). After one EP and two LP's the band split, but the are still considered the most original thrash band in Spain and one of the most importants.
Thank you very much.

The Third Grade was born in 2009 as an acoustic project leaded by the vocalist and guitarist Jose Masiá, but after some months composing, the band ended up as a metal band itself.
'The Third Grade', their first LP arrived on the early 2012. Time went by as the band started to play at some venues and also working on new songs when they recorded the single 'Holes'. Short after that, Daniel Castillo as bassist and Laura Millán as singer joined the band.
On 2013, The Third Grade published their second job, an EP called 'The Garden of the Whispers'; with these new five songs the band not only proved their natural evolution as a band, but also a matter of personal style as a band.
After the historic drummer of the band left unexpectedly, in November 2013 Rafa Sáez joined the band.
After the summer, in September 2014, 'Breathe Away', a new single, saw the light. This song means a display of powerful metal, but melodic at the same time, where Jose and Laura's voices play an important role, giving the song that epic aura that makes it special.
Before 2014 comes to an end, The Third Grade will introduce to the world their new acoustic EP: 'Orion'

Distillator is a young thrash metal band from Netherlands.
I like their music and hope they can be heard more widely.
LORDS OF METAL (2015)
"One the greatest full-length thrash album that ever emerged from Dutch soil"
"Distillator is THE revelation in the European thrash metal music scene"
"It is almost impossible to top this album in 2015"
"This day and age it is hard to label a thrash metal album as original, but Distillator certainly achieves to create their own sound and vibe."
"The Netherlands has been known for exporting renowned metal acts like Gorefest, Asphyx, Pestilence and Legion of the Damned. With the release Revolutionary Cells, the Dutch trio Distillator proves a worthy addition to this list!"
"With this debut album, Distillator joins the metal elite of the Low Countries."
"Distillator deserves a place in the collection of every self-respecting thrashmetalfan and is again an asset to the Dutch and Belgian thrash scene (and beyond)."
"a newcomer to keep an eye on!"
METAL TEMPLE (2015)
"What makes Revolutionary Cells stand out of the crowd is that all the songs bring something new to the table, something so many bands (old and new) fail to do."
"This album transcends beyond the old school-new school boundaries and has the ability to make all fans of the Thrash genre rejoice."
ZWARE METALEN (2015):
"Distillator released a debut that sounds impressive and has made them a key figure of the Dutch thrash scene"
