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!".

Not quite a metal band, but seeing that other hard rock or glam bands are featured, I do not see why these guys shouldn't be here. Great White is one of the better bands from that thoroughly commercial movement of the 80s.

We got a full length cd as required. It'd be a great honour to be featured on this site. Here you can find some info:
Sycon bears just one thing in mind with their music - Total Havoc!
Brutal guitar riffs, versatile vocals, stomping beats and atmospheric synths defines the music, all while retaining their melodic metal roots.
Groove Factor Guaranteed!

Shorty after bassist Lars joined Sycon. 2014 they released the single "Downer" with female singer Seline. In early 2015 they finally found their permanent frontman Daniel, which worked before with Ill Kommodity and as rapper KoH Kain and is known as streamer KæinPlay.

Now Royal Corvus band has created more than thirty Russian and English-language songs. Song's sound is very different: from romantic ballads to hard and progressive rock. And nobody of the listeners will not remain indifferent, because everyone will find something in this music for themselves. All this different musical styles are merged in one unique style - Corvus style. Besides his own works band plays covers of classic rock and pop songs.

Amazing avantgarde band i've discovered recently, mixing jazz, slow & fast tempos with a thrashy druming and almost no vocals besides occasional screams, these guys will for sure deliver for avangarde metal fans!

Innate Concept's musical identity is rooted in the Progressive Metal genre - and the word "progression" is to be taken literally. Innate Concept strives to incorporate elements, instruments and ideas normally not found in classic Progressive Metal. The newest album "Sunset In Our Eyes" combines elements from electronica and classical elements into a whole new and unique sound. A multitude of synthesizers create the atmosphere, color and texture, the mighty Taiko drum ensemble delivers power, groove and impact, while the Armenian Duduk conjures up ethereal melodies, adding yet another layer to the rich-bodied symphonic orchestra. A piano and various acoustic guitars are another integral part of melodic storytelling and quite frequently intertwine with other instruments. All of this takes place planted firmly on the foundation of thundering drums, shredding guitars and a nasty, angry bass. Innate Concept's music is challenging, demanding, cunning, powerful, intense, yet so delicate and fragile. Be prepared, for it will demand your full attention - and it will surprise you if you dare a listen. Debut album can be purchased at http://www.innateconcept.com/shop/

Progressive Metal band in the vein of The Human Abstract's Digital Veil album without the harsh vocals. Their debut album Reticence: The Musical has already been released. Definitely worth a listen.

Deep in the bowels of the city of Charlotte, North Carolina lurks a band known as Pain After Death. Pain After Death was formed one summer by members of Divine Heresy, Nile and Scapegoat. Initially it was intended to be a side project but the band soon realized the true potential of the music. Blending together many influences including, Metal, Death, Hardcore and Rock, also occasionally throwing in a little southern twang and hollering or even a jazz break the band has an eclectic yet brutal sound that is topped with a vocal attack of guttural lows, shrieking highs, consistent meaty mids and *gasps* the occasional clean vocal. The intensity of the live show is unparalleled and they have recently got to display this intensity, sharing the stage with Fear Factory, KillWhitneyDead, Prong, Silent Civilian, The Demonstration, Vanisher, Thy Will Be Done and Zeus to name a few. Pain After Death is currently seeking a REAL label and will tour relentlessly no matter what.

Metal Storm is a great promotional website and I would like to promote my music as much as I can. My music is fast paced with a lot of guitar solos, blast beats, and double bass. My debut CD entitled "Volume I" is being released on March 06, 2012.

This is a new up incoming metal band from Hamilton Ontario. They fuse together different styles of metal such as symphonic, black, death and neo classical to create rifts that bring out different sounds every time you listen to their songs. From what I know of them they are not signed and currently recording their first full length album piece by piece in Montreal. I've seen them live twice now and really enjoy their style. When I last talked to the band they lost their drummer and are currently using a drum machine to do their new recordings for the their new songs. Super nice guys and would love to get their name out there a little bit more just so they can get some recognition.

Tunnelvision is a wrongly ignored band who managed to create two very decent albums. Maybe not groundbreaking music but inspired and well executed. It should appeal to all Progressive Metal lovers.

great band, two surprisingly good albums, great musicianship, a shame they have disbanded

Featuring Brian Fair (Shadows Fall), Mike D'Antonio (Killswitch Engage), Colin Conway (ex-Cannae/Frozen), Pete Cortese (ex-Overcast/Seemless) and Zack Wells, this band has just released an awesome EP. Can't wait for more from them!!

It is Power metal. But faster, harsher, a bit more heavier then original Power Metal. Some call them melo-death, but they are more similar to Norther, CoB and Eternal Tears of Sorrow then to melodic death metal bands. They opened for Ensiferum when they were in South Africa, and are opening for Fleshgod Apocalypse when they tour there in March.

The River plays a very inspired traditionnal form of Doom Metal, with excellent female vocals, passionate without being operatic. Rather melodic and atmospheric, their music mainly relies on the strong guitar work. Their album Drawing Down The Sun is a must hear for all Doom lovers and should ensure them a spot here on MS.
