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!".

Fire Garden is one of the most artistic, creative and aspiring bands. A project founded by Zeeshan Baig a.k.a. Zee in 2011 in Chicago. Since then the band has released one EP 'The Prelude' (2012) and a full length studio record 'Sound of Majestic Colors' (2014).
Fire Garden's philosophy is not to classify their music to one particular genre but to explore different styles to find their own sound. The band incorporates classic sounds, odd time signatures, skull crushing riffs, catchy vocal melodies, guitar and keyboard solos into their music without compromising the soul of music.
Breaching all the rules of traditional songwriting Fire Garden is continue to explore its journey into modern progressive music with all the classic sounds of its origins.

Fatal Attraction should be on MetalStorm because they display a wide range of metal talent and passion. They should be on a website that smoothly organizes all of their history.

Never Awake is an American progressive metal band from Portland, Oregon formed in 2011 by Matt Galligan, Taylor Dye, and Alex McDonald. Shortly after their formation, Never Awake released their self-titled EP in March of the following year. Never Awake went on to share the stage with the likes of Fate's Warning, the Michael Schenker Group, and world-renowned guitarist Uli Jon Roth. After gigging throughout Portland and beyond with a revolving door of bass players, Jesse Weiss joined the band, and with a solid line-up, Never Awake began writing the material for their debut album, "Underground" which is available now.

Although our band is on the lighter side of Metal, we are still Metal and we have an extremely talented singer. We have been featured in a few Metal magazines and webzines already. We will be releasing our debut album 'Tears of Lust' on July 21st
Finally, it would be an honor to be on a site with such an extensive list of Metal bands from all over the World :)

Led by Danish guitarist and songwriter, Torben Enevoldsen (Section A, Fatal Force), the initial idea for Acacia Avenue came about from Torben writing in a more melodic hard rock nature than his other bands. Quickly the idea emerged to do a whole album in this style, but to spice things up, Torben called in a few good friends to participate as singers and co-writers.

Is it... a new band, or just changed name? We can have the Eyeless profile updated, if appropriate / if need be (actually, you could search and click to edit it yourself, and mention / copypaste this at the bottom)

A young Pakistani band that brings a fun mix of grindcore, hardcore punk and death metal. The production on their latest ep Jamat-al-Maut might be a bit lacking but the enthusiasm speaks volumes.
