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!".

Great band, but they were really more of a hard rock band. They were incredibly influential to punk, but not really that much where metal is concerned. I wouldn't put them on here.

organic illusion's history is not about musicians leaving and joining bands. it is about music, devotion, different styles and attitude.
where groove, passion and everyday life meld together to create an ever evolving sound that explores extreme music, melody, groove to be unleashed onstage.
universe closed in a cage, made of bones and bleeding flesh.
he Linear Chaos is the brand new album from Organic Illusion after the acclaimed debut mini-Lp Deception released in 2012.
A full-lenght with 8 songs as a result of three years of music, passion, furious live performances and lot of stages shared with bands like Extrema, Sawthis, Infernal Poetry, Thell Barrio, Rise of the Northstar, Resurrecturis, Natron.
The primoridial thrash/groove sound developed by the band throughout the years joins now modern influencies, melody, speed and intensity.
Here's the very first copy of our brand new work: we're sure you will enjoy it and we hope in a positive feedback.

Formed in early 2012, CHAOSBAY is digging its way through the thickets of the upcoming metal and progressive music scene. Ever since then, the group founded by mastermind Jan Listing, has always strived to combine complex song structures with heaviness and catchy melodies. led by outstanding and wide-ranging lead vocals. Meticulously working on their energetic and virtuoso live-shows, their songs tend to exceed the limits of conventional lenghts and structures, leading to a new architecture of sound, inspired by classical music, pop and metal genres. Touring throughout clubs and having hit many stages in their home country during the last two years, CHAOSBAY recently had the opportunity to support the well-known German progressive/alternative-acts THE INTERSPHERE, as well as instrumental-progrockers FRAMES and US-stoner-legends CLUTCH. The line-up also consists of Joschka Bender (Fedora, ex-The Utopia Experiment), Patrick Bernath (Hot Chick Banged) and Matthias Heising (Heising, Fedora). The band released their fully self-made and eponymous EP in late 2012 and is about to finish a 40-minute coloss track: "Vasilisa", which will be released next year.

The Arcanum XII were born in 2012 from the common idea of a group of musician friends to give life to a musical project that brought a progressive metal shade in an area such their place where unfortunately these kind of music and genres have no way to emerge.
After a initial brief knowledge, they joined immediately in the rehearsal room already owned by Mattia, the drummer of the group, to start composing their own music geared mainly on power metal and symphonic prog metal, citing groups such as Rush, Dream Theater, Vanden Plas, King Crimson etc …
They tried early on to give space to each component in order to express their own ideas, integrating them into songs as they went to take life.
After several months of "technical testing" there was a slight change of course where they decided to replace the singer with a voice that suited more to the songs that were born and with the passing of time abandoned the power metal imprint, veering towards a more complex progressive metal made of compound tenses and melodic twists.
The singer became Fabio Punchina one of the most powerful voices and later with the arrival of Mirco Mandruzzato at the keyboards, that leaves in the province of Rovigo, gived the final touch that was missing in the group.
Today, the band is still stable and the agreement is certainly good, the songs are becoming more progressive shades and the sound introduced by the new keyboardist, combined infinite extension voice of Fabio, made the Arcanum XII an highly respected group within their music.

This is my band, and we're trying to get somewhere with our music. We have recently recorded our debut album, Resilient, and hope to mindblow people with the energy and power in our music.
We have existed for almost nine years, and we all want to live out the dream of being a musician.
We just changed our name to get a fresh start, so that's why the facebook URL doesn't view the new name.

Hi! I'm Attila Bakos, composer behind Taranis. Taranis - Kingdom was selected as The Best Melodic Black Metal/Metalgaze Album of the Year by the staff in 2012. Aranyhajnal is my new record which is released under my own name. It's definately softer than Taranis but it's still metal, so it might have a place on MetalStorm.
