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!".

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.

Trees On Mars is an American Instrumental Progressive Metal project, formed in 2013. Band has received glowing reviews, see below:
"Trees on Mars play to impress by creating intriguing sonic landscapes, with compositions focusing on intricate guitar work that always seems fitting for the song, never in a boastful strutting way. 'The Sapling' is clean and tight just like it should be, setting roots and paving a road for a future that shows room for growth from the band stylistically." - David Stringer, SceneSC
"Trees on Mars is well on their way to become one of the best bands that Instrumental Prog can offer. Throughout the album you can hear so many shades of the band's influences with it all flowing together and sounding authentic and organic." - ThatDrummerGuy

"Socrates Drank The Conium", a.k.a. "Socrates", is one of the most influential and important bands of the 70's rock scene in Greece. Influenced by heavy blues and rock bands like "The Jimi Hendrix Experience" and "Cream", the band melded the unorthodox time signatures and orchestration of progressive rock and the intensity of blues and hard rock music, creating a unique sound that distinguished them from other Greek rock acts of that period.
