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!".

Inspired by the magic of their birthplace (Sintra - Portugal), LEGACY OF CYNTHIA put out an alternative sound inside the metal spectrum.
Driven by an intense and profound rhythmic section, and stimulated by the melody and the technique of the guitars and vocals, the band managed to make their mark in the underground Portuguese circuit, achieving recognition by self launching the "Voyage" EP and the debut album "Renaissance".

They are a kickass old school style Power Metal band that have had 4 albums released since 2007. They deserve to be featured on this site and gain more exposure. I'm surprised they aren't already on here.

Juan Bond is a new band out of NYC. They could be described as experimental "mathcore" band from NYC influenced by not only heavy and spastic music but also avant-garde classical and ambient music. It is dark and intense; self described as "Overchast Chaos." For fans of Dillinger Escape Plan, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Kayo Dot, Refused, Daughters, etc.

I don't know why the band has no page in here, band is belong to Robert Kampf, who founded Century Media label.
I bought their limited special 2CD edition of their album from 1988 'History of Hate', i think it is a good album, not well known maybe but really underrated, and i would like to see their page here and to add them to my collection.
I don't see official website but they appear on Metal-Archives.com (they released three main albums).
I hope you will add the band to this site.

It started well in 2013 with the debut, but the follow up album is an absolute killer with new vocals are Pathfinder-like background, holy shit.

It's phenomenal and unlikely band, especially on polish metal scene strongly dominated by black/death metal. Titanium explores quite different musical areas - melodic power metal.
The band has released 2 albums until now, both issued with success in Japan by Avalon/Marquee label. The second LP "Atomic number 22" released on 28.09.2016.
The band was started by the guitarist and main composer Karol Mania, known for symphonic metal band Pathfinder as well.
On vocals we can hear Konstantin Naumenko from Ukrainian SUNRISE band.
Here you can watch their official video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAxTbBCIfV0

I discovered this band on youtube, they did Sonata Arctica "Fullmoon" better than original. Now with new singer I',m even more amazed. New songs are fantastic!

Scorching Winter is a female-fronted hard rock band based in Melbourne, Australia. Their current lineup consists of: Konstantina Papadimitriou, Vocals; Rafael Katigbak, Guitar; Natalie Bellio, Keyboards; Glenn Treasure, Bass; and Nick James on Drums. In Aug 2015, the band released their first EP "Peripheral" earning them airplay and new fans around the world. This year, the band is set to reach new heights with their first full length concept album "Victim" which contains their fiercest work to date. In contrast to other female-fronted rock bands, they offer stronger emphasis on instrumentation and composition. They like catchy guitar riffs with unexpected style changes. This is what gives their music a slightly progressive feel. Scorching Winter delves into a unique dark artistry, inspired to take listeners on a musically satisfying, metal-edged journey.

The band plays very cool mixture of black, death and thrash metal with a sci-fi twist and now they released their first EP titled Ascendance. I would recommend it for fans of Absu, Vektor, Morbus Chron, Stargazer, etc.

Ionized are a portuguese group. The band formed in 2014 under the influence of bands like Alice in Chains, Sevendust.
The band brings the composition style used in 90s bands with heavy guitars riffs and triggered electronic pulsed samples.
It should be in this forum so people could get to touch this recent band and appreciate it.

Frédéric Leclercq, virtuoso bassplayer of London-based Power Metallers DragonForce, and Joey Jordison, formerly of Slipknot and currently of Vimic, had long been concocting a plan to put together an extreme metal project, they finally did it.

Because if Korn can make it on MS, so can this band.... and a lot of Sum 41 songs ARE metal (For example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIMqAxeDcNE) and (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYzMDCQPxL4) and (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYnffcY4tqs) and they played a big part of the Alternative / Nu Metal movement back in the 2000s era. Imo they have enough riffs and solos to be considered in the metal genre, unlike Blink 182. Although Sum 41 have a punk influence as well they still have more metal than a lot of bands i've seen on here that are just plain ambient or experimental instruments with no guitars. They were up there with Korn, RATM, SlipKnot, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, just to name a few.

Green Death got a big boost when Megadeth bassist Dave Ellefson signed them to a record deal on his label. The band has become well-known in the Midwest and play several shows around central Iowa every month. They've even had Dave Ellefson guest perfom at their live shows which also includes Des Moines' biggest music festival 80/35. They play straight forward thrash with a fresh style that is not too grating, but advanced enough for there to be something new for everyone. Green Death take not-ultra-serious metal to a new level, and they deserve more recognition for their efforts.
