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!".

They may not be as heavy as they use to be, but they deserve recognition for the movement they started in the US with their 2005 release: Vheissu. Hold Fast Hope is a Metal Storm worthy track. Vheissu is a Metal Storm worthy record. Thrice is a Metal Storm worthy band.
They also have enough of a following to bring a new stream of traffic through the site.

Recently re-activated, after a 7year hiatus, having gone from a good standard of black metal in their early years, to a far stronger and avantgarde influenced black metal in 2015 (full length) and 2016 (EP).

Great doom metal band from Belgium, with their first EP already released through the great Svart Records (Finland), consisting of former and current members of SerpentCult, Sardonis & Death Penalty. One of the most interesting and honest bands to come out of belgium in the last decade.
