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!".

INNER ODYSSEY is a Canadian, Québec-based, quintet that continues the legacy that was paved by progressive metal bands like DREAM THEATER and FATES WARNING.
The band had its humble beginnings with Vincent Leboeuf GADREAU, in 2007, while he was still college. After just leaving a hardcore band, the guitarist desided to put his creative talent into the progressive genre due to his love for bands like RIVERSIDE, DREAM THEATER, PORCUPINE TREE, SYMPHONY X and many others.
The result of this new project was the band INNER ODYSSEY which mixes the hard lines of modern metal music with the strong emotional feeling tones of old fashioned and modern progressive rock. The band is currently comprised of Vincent Leboeuf GADREAU on guitars and vocals, Simon GOURDEAU on bass, Pier-Luc Garand DION on vocals, Mathieu CHAMBERLAND on piano and keyboards and Étienne DOYON on drums and vocals.
