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 have two full-length albums under their wings ('Into the Depths of Oblivion' and 'Apotheosis') and their music is (to quote their website) "rooted in Avantgarde Black Metal and infused with atmospheric and doom-laden sections".

So these Texans have been around since 1998 and since then they have produced numerous albums, two of which were full length releases. Thanatopsis from 2010 and Memorious from 2013. Both are solid albums!

Napstasia was born to keep alive the old school death metal, with sounds, spirits and more about these years. Plus we try to traspond that from '90 to our days with our sounds and something new and personal.
Oh, and we love play too.

Dismal Gale's music is pleasant for its style and not repetitive.
They've made one album, "Dismal Serenades", which totally deserve recognition.
They can play and compose, they deserve their place on Metalstorm.
They success at establishing a great ambiance through their music.

I believe this talented individual should be on Metal Storm so that other metal fans can partake of the incredible art this one-man Blackened Thrash machine has been creating since 2012.
Good music NEEDS exposure and this is some of the sickest, most unique metal I have heard in a while.
all albums are available here for free download

Divinion defies classification, yet still maintains strong roots in the rock/metal genre. Musically, they're continually pushing the boundaries of what is possible—keeping a careful balance between bleeding-edge musicianship and catchy songwriting.
Drummer Jamie Lopata, guitarist Tom Foraker, vocalist George Wood, and bassist Gregory Apple deliver addictive sledgehammer-metal riffs interwoven with diverse textures and colors setting them apart from lackluster garden-variety metal. Divinion band members are all schooled in the classics (Black Sabbath, Rush, Iron Maiden, J-Priest, Slayer, Testament, M-tallica, M-deth, Dream Theater, etc.) and can't help but create great music of their own. If you get a chance to hear Divinion, you won't soon forget about them!
