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!".

Female fronted Power Metal band. Released debut album in 2015
Control The Storm are a melodic metal band based in the UK. Offering unforgettable melodies, an astounding double assault of dual guitars, atmospheric keys and the hard hitting rhythm section that modern metalheads crave. Control The Storm were awarded a slot on Bloodstock Festival's 'New Blood' stage in 2012 after winning Reading's 'Metal To The Masses' competition. Their 2010 debut EP was well received by a growing fan base and their new album is expected to be released in February 2015. Watch out world, there's a storm brewing!

Sebkha-Chott should be on Metal Storm, because it is quoted in several articles, reviews and bands descriptions, and also because, if needed, I can send you the whole discography of this band, except the 6th one, which is to be released at Autumn 2015: http://vimeo.com/sebkhachott/moquettesettapis-teaser1
Let me know if you want me to send this all.

If you look at the past two years, the amount of symphonic black metal bands that are being formed are very low. It's only top bands like Dimmu Borgir, Cradle of FIlth have the fame at the moment, if you can give my music a chance and hopefully more underground symphonic bands, I hope I can impress you guys.

Divine Weep has been formed in 1995 as a black metal band, gaining recognition both in the country and outside of it. During the years of inactivity the band's style evolved into classic heavy metal in the vein of giants such as Iron Maiden and Helloween. The band came back to life in 2010 with a bundle of new songs and recruited new members, getting a new chance to shine among Poland's metal scene, which resulted in a lot of gigs including those supporting bands such as Hunter, Turbo and Blaze Bayley (ex-Iron Maiden). Divine Weep released two demos and one full lenght album "Age of the Immortal" (2013) and now is preparing to record the new album "Tears of the Ages". The session is planned for March 2015 in the well-known Hertz Studio (Vader, Behemoth, Decapitated). The sound will be engineered by Piotr Polak and Sławek Wiesławski, the mixing and mastering process will be handled by Wojtek Wiesławski.

It appears this band have the Cradle of Filth, Elvira Madigan & Wykked Wytch style in sound. The vocals are also close to that of Death, Razor, Massacre, Malicious Onslaught & a few others or so. It's actually a bit refreshing hearing someone who can actually get to a high pitch without it sounding like a fail. People claim that they can fry, but they end up sucking at it, the frontman can seem to carry it out pretty well. It's probably the hardest vocal skill to master.
