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!".

Old school inspired Death Metal but with a strong concept and long songs. Kind of unique but still fits the style.
2 full albums releases so far, including one in September 2014 which got quite a great feedback from reviewers so far.
Latest album was recorded, mixed and mastered in Poland by the live sound Engineer of Behemoth who also worked with Decapitated, Hate,...

Their sound is interesting, well balanced between heavy, upfront parts and mellow interludes; folk and medieval influences mix together with orchestral elements, making all sound pretty epic.

They are an extremely dedicated young metal band from a small town that has no metal scene and they deserve the promotion metalstorm can give them. They have already released material with gained critical acclaim.

It's a high quality band with it's first album and EP already released. Frequently cited by the Croatian metal webzine reporters Metaljacket as the best Croatian metal band. In the last two years, the band has become hugely popular and gained a great number of fans from the world.
Actually they are closest to Melodic Djent.

After several lineup changes and provisional names , it is not until Paul's arrival in 2010 , when the group consolidated. It is at this time that also decides that Alberto was the lead singer , while guitarist.

A fine band. But in no way are they metal.

Ten years of prog, five LPs, one of which, The Color Spectrum, is a two and a half hour collection of nine EPs based around the nine main colours of the visible wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation. If that doesn't pique your interest, consider The Dear Hunter's ambitious and ongoing undertaking of a six-album project, detailing the life and opinions of a boy known as "the dear hunter".
It wouldn't be the first prog rock band to deserve its spot on the 'invisible bands' list.

Peculate is unique metal project that combines contemporary forms of metal, including technical death metal and mathcore, with contemporary classical and jazz influences. It is unlike most bands on Metal Storm, and, given the shortage of coverage on avant-garde metal, could help enrich the diversity of the Metal Storm community. Peculate is also very prolific, having released several albums in less than two years.

They play southern rock/hard rock and they developed a quite "heavy" sound especially in the mid 90's. With many albums that are now considered to be classics, I think that they should be on Metal Storm.
