00:09 - moonflash Heroes, another show which went to the dogs after an utterly brilliant first season.
00:07 - moonflash Yeah the "twists" became increasingly predicatable as the seasons progressed. I especially hated the Kate episodes, just couldn't stand the useless insights into her life-story which contributed nothing to the plot whatsoever.
23:55 - Mattybu Actually the real twist of Lost is hidden in an encrypted code, at the 12:37 point in each episode a quick flash appears on screen and when you piece them together its a number, text that number to 866712-LOST to vote
23:51 - E.Mols86 Indeed. Season 1 blew me away. I can remember the ending of season 3 being excellent as well (you know: "not Penny's boat"). The "twist" at the ending really got me mad because it was so cheesy and predictable. Truly pathetic.
23:50 - Lit. I hated Lost right from the get-go. It looked like a more dramatic Gilligan's Island to me.
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!".

The band features 3 members from Isis, another post metal band already on MS, and the vocalist of Deftones.
It is more post-like than Isis and not quite as heavy, but it definitely deserves a place on MS, as it is reminiscent of bands like AtomA.
I believe that a lot of fans of bands like Isis, AtomA, Enshine, Aoria and other bands in that vein of music will greatly appreciate this band.
29.06.2013 - SyFFiLiS
"Heavy, stargazing rock outfit Palms was forged out of an explosive collision, as Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno joined forces with critically-lauded post-metal group ISIS". This should be enough said to add this band on MS.

Album is fantastic, put it on here!
07.07.2013 - Unhealer
Liking this album more and more each listen!

Didn't hear any metal in this at all when I listened.
03.10.2013 - 3rdWorld
-1. And i do agree with Mr.Database manager. There isn't any metal in this at all. No need to die to get it added in here, cuz this doesn't deserve a place here. Not to mention their really crappy and bland debut. Pfft. >:(
24.10.2013 - ScreamingSteelUS
I don't understand why people insist on associating post-rock with metal. There is no metal here.
29.12.2013 - Zaphod
Agreed, no reason to be on MS. Then again, they added Anneke Van Giersbergen just because she has been in metal bands...
24.05.2012 - The Benighted
Corelia are a burgeoning progressive/technical metal band with a single EP under their belts. With a sound not unlike Protest the Hero and The Human Abstract, they've come across some especially interesting ideas along the way, with a stunning selection of songs, to boot. 'Nostalgia' was released in 2011, and I've been listening ever since. Highly recommended.
02.12.2009 - Bastard Child
London based and out to offend everyone. Featuring members of Damnas and Inner Rage River Frehney have terrorized the UK underground with their no holds bar offensive comedy and hardcore thrash. Have played with ArnoCorps, Ring Wrom and Evile, toured with Nebukadnezza and have a number of EP's released.

Fastway are a British heavy metal band formed by guitarist, "Fast" Eddie Clarke, formerly of Motörhead, and bassist, Pete Way, formerly of UFO.
Don't think I need more reasons to explain why the band needs to be part of MS? Do You? I bet most of Motörhead and UFO fans are familiar with Fastway or know something about the band.
In addition, I am not able to find there official site, however I provided a link to there myspace page.
27.01.2010 - DayFly
AOR of the sticky, shmalzy kind
24.10.2013 - onedh
Fastway should be included in metalstorm.com ASAP. "Fast" Eddie Clarke delivers atrue amount of oldschool Heavy Metal. Also this band has been an influence for many other bands.

Info in English here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Los_Suaves
They should be here as Spain is a kind of important country as regards metal fans and this band is together with another 4 or 5 the most famous hard rock and rock band in the territory. Above all from Madrid northwards. They only reason why outsiders don't know them is the fact that they sing in Spanish. Otherwise, they would be popular enough for you.
Their music style is quite similar to The Ramones, Motorhead...The voice is let's say "peculiar". They are still active after 28 years and still selling out venues.
Their website appears to be in maintenance now.

Stamina is a french metal band founded by the keyboardist Gildas Vijay ROUSSEAU. In 2006 they released their debut album "Mess'Age" and currently work on the second album "Via Crucis".

In the Autumn of 2008, CHAOS IN PARADISE started taking their first steps in a small garage in Oporto suburbs, where Alex and Quik began to outline the identity of the band.
After a few days, they started searching for other musicians to complete CHAOS IN PARADISE and after a while they found Pedro for guitar, 19 for bass and Sara for the vocal parts.
With the band as a whole, the quintet began writing their first Demo which came out in February 2010, including the songs "Dawn", "Heading North", "The Meaning of Being Imposed" and "Antagonized".
The band recorded the Demo at their own studio and released and distributed the four songs online for free!
After, CHAOS IN PARADISE began their live shows through Portugal, to promote their work and also to obtain experience as a band.
In the beginning of 2011, the band returned to the rehearsal room to start writing their following work, trying a new aproach to improve their sound, bringing their own identity to it and making it more coherent.
With the pre-production on the bagage, the recording sessions of the EP started in March 2011 at Soundvision Studios in Vila do Conde with Paulo Lopes in the co-production.
From the EP entitled "Let the Bliss Remain" the band released their first single "Awareness" to the fans and press, aquiring unanimous opinions expressing that their evolution and sound quality had a huge improvement.
With the "Let the Bliss Remain" presentation and release in June 2011, CHAOS IN PARADISE came back to the road to promote their EP in Portugal, having already some International shows in mind.
At the moment, they're planning to edit their first album in 2012.

Ugh those weak screams...a better vocalist would be a huge improvement.
10.04.2013 - JefferyTotterdell
Great up and coming band, with a bit of reggae and Latin mixed in, which is groovy
First Ep of three albums and the progression is really good.
These types of bands have been doing really well lately.
But the music tells the real story so have a listen, a few live performances on YouTube.
24.02.2009 - warlock84
We are a young band trying to get our name out there and believe this site is a great tool to help with that. We are a true metal band, not that nu-metal or radio friendly junk. We all grew up listening to bands like Pantera, Slayer, Iced Earth, Testament, Kataklysm, Amon Amarth, etc and strive to bring back the old school heavy metal. We hope to record a demo this year and any press, good or bad, would be greatly appreciated.
13.07.2012 - Steve Rowland
This is a pretty good band from Québec. They're pretty well known and good in the genre. I'm actually surprised this band isn't on this site already. A listen to this song should help convincing you :

+1, and I too am surprised to find them in the list of sugestions.

Slash's Snakepit was a rock band which was a side-project formed by then-Guns N' Roses lead guitarist Slash (Saul Hudson) in 1994. On their first album, Matt Sorum (drums), Gilby Clarke (rhythm guitar) and Dizzy Reed (keyboard) from Guns N' Roses played in this band. On bass was Mike Inez of Alice in Chains and Eric Dover (who had previously played guitar for Jellyfish) sang lead vocals.
GN'R colleague Teddy Andreadis also appeared on the record playing harmonica & keyboards.
03.03.2010 - DayFly
Honestly, this stuff has too much boogie to call it metal. Maybe if Aerosmith were here...
30.12.2009 - drpaxton
This band is worth listening to to all who like heavy music. They play a very unique kind of music, you can call it alternative rock, or hard rock, with one the most talented lead singers out there.
15.03.2011 - WingedOctopi
Amazing band, fans of Tool should like this.
05.01.2012 - hadriel
This band needs to be added. Similar bands like dredg and Fair to Midland have been added to the site, rightfully so should these guys. Not to mention that their music is stellar! ;)
12.04.2012 - Nicoline
With 2,4 million listens registered on last.fm, this band cannot be ignored. I hope to read reviews and updates on Rishloo from MS in the future.
05.04.2013 - DarkSymphony500
Atmospheric/Doom Metal band with gothic influences. They get the influences from bands such as Draconian, Agalloch, Shape of Despair, Saturnus and Tristania. They have released 2 EPs and a full-length album 'Errances' (2012).

Lutomysl doesn't have a website or a myspace, so that myspace link is a fan page. They have a pritty intense heavy style, kind of depressive sometimes too. There is only 6 bands from Ukraine on MS! Thats gotta change, hehehe.
Edit: Lutomysl does have a myspace now, http://www.myspace.com/lutomyslofficial

Great band, one of my favourite bm band
08.06.2011 - in GRAVE
they are a good progressive metal band and they are influenced in dream theater and symphony x
16.05.2012 - Oracles
There one of those hidden European Prog Metal bands that are from a country who produces little to zero good metal bands and they signed with an unknown record company that is making them go unnoticed. But if everything goes good, this band has immense future. Their major influence is Dream Theater.
Tree of Life ,
The Land of Lights.
All of which you can find on youtube.

Romeo Must Die is ex „ STAMPIN' GROUND „ (Century Media Records) a band that the world press labeled a veteran force and the UK's most credible and successful underground band of the last decade.

Gandalf is a death-metal band from Finland whose more traditional metal sound links them with Sweden's Entombed and Finland's own Sentenced, among others, rather than the more experimental Scandinavian bands such as Emperor. The band's first international album, Deadly Fairytales, was released in 1999. Rock Hell followed two years later.
17.02.2012 - yeah1980
I remember a ten years ago I was listening to this band, definitely metal, definitely worthy.

Last month, I happened to see three surprisingly good Greek bands live warming-up for Xandria at their gig in Athens. The best band was, of course, Bare Infinity, the most professional ones who have gained lots of success even abroad. However, the band that personally got my attention mostly (and, to be completely honest with you - fully during their set) was rather SadDolls. Even though the band had some sound problems, they all did their job pretty well. Many people would say that their frontman reminded much of either Ville Valo or Pete Steele. However, their music (in my opinion) is way different compared with HIM's and Type'O'Negative's discography. SadDolls have already released their debut album. They have also shot a video for the song "Watch Me Crawl Behind" and are definitely among Greece's best Goth acts. I support this band because I find it somehow different and I do think there is future for its music. SadDolls are currently working on new song, as well as on a new video. Let's add something different!
04.06.2010 - Uirapuru
Dude, you are too fuckin rigorous. MS is not an encyclopedia, they may add some bands that, despite not being metal, can appeal to the taste of many metalheads. Being close to metal sometimes is good enough.
04.06.2010 - Uirapuru
One of the precursors when talk about Extreme music in Brazil.
They play a extreme kind of punk, with hardcore, crust, thrash and even grindcore elements (even years before Napalm Death's Scum)
10.07.2010 - cursedestiny
nice hard band .. but is not metal
16.10.2011 - joachimers
Absolutely metal, this is awesome!
04.10.2012 - Die Hacker [PT]
Agreed absolutely with Uirapuru. Totally disagreed with cursedestiny. First half of their career is more metal (cross over thrash to be more precise) than punk. Those albums are important in the genre's comprehensive understanding.
31.05.2010 - Sy-Furr
I have seen these guys play like four times. They know their Metal! Just the kind of music that we need more of.
I think we will be hearing a lot about them is the very near future. They have made a name for themselves in Seattle already.
Blood and Thunder deserves the attention.
Here is a review of their latest show : http://www.nocleansinging.com/2010/05/30/blood-and-thunder/#more-12494

Dreyelands are a melodic progressive metal band from Hungary. The band offer up a new fresh, yet classic sound in the melodic progressive metal genre and ‘Rooms Of Revelation’ opens its doors to the public on April 17 2010. They will surely be cherished by those who like Dream Theater, Symphony X, Pagan’s Mind, Circus Maximus, Jorn Lande, Evergrey, Redemption, etc.
30.05.2010 - VezzyRattlehead
One of the most recognized Bulgarian metal bands, especially as of recent. Seven full-length albums since 2008, plus seven demos. They're definitely metal and some of the strongest Bulgarian lyrics.
26.07.2010 - neo_torment
Vezzy - are you deaf? Don't we care about lyrics when vocals & instruments sounding emberassing thin for an act associated with any kind of metal genre. Why is this dude selling records instead of his pure manpower, doing fieldwork from 9 - 5

Wig Wam is a Norwegian hard rock band, which is dedicated to Glam metal and imitates the style of typical rock bands from the 1980s movement.
Wig Wam comes from Norway, more specifically the county of Østfold, and they were founded in 2001. Before their establishment the band members were already active in the music business, playing in bands like Dream Police, Artch, Sha-Boom, Ole Evenrud and Alien, or as solo artists. Wig Wam worked hard to get to the top of the national charts, starting their career with numerous live performances across the country, quickly becoming one of Norway's most popular live bands. Their fan base is known as Wig Wamaniacs.
In 2004 the band released its debut album "667 ... The Neighbour Of The Beast", which was also released in Sweden. Amongst other things, the album contains a cover of Mel C.'s no. 1 hit I Turn to You. After qualifying for the Eurovision Song Contest in Ukraine, Wig Wam are going to release their album all over Europe, in a new version called "Hard To Be A Rock'n'Roller…In Kiev", including the hit "In My Dreams". Among their musical idols, Wig Wam count the groups KISS and Sweet.
In November 2005 the band released their first Dvd 'Rock 'N' Roll Revolution 2005' showing the highlights from Wig Wam's best year so far. Included in this Dvd is 'Wig Wam Symphonic'
In March 2006 the band released its second full album Wig Wamania with much better distribution around Europe. In July 2006 Wig Wamania was also released in Japan by King Records with 3 bonus tracks. By the end of August Wig Wam's previous album also hit the Japanese market. The album's Japanese edition with 3 bonus tracks is being slightly retitled to "Hard To Be A Rock'n Roller… In Tokyo!".
The band released their fourth studio album Non Stop Rock 'N Roll on January 22, 2010.
In January 2010 Wig Wam were announced as the support act for KISS at Valhall in Oslo on June 14 2010

They are a band from Lyon, i saw them 3 times in concert and they rocked hard.
I also made their myspace so i know them a bit :p
They have a first EP called absolution which has not a sound over the top but it is very good althougt.
I think they deserve to join the metalstorm nation!
Sorry for my ridiculous English but, hey, i'm French!

Terra Impressionum are a band originating from a small seaside town of Novofyodorovka, Saki region (AR Crimea, UKRAINE). The band strive to keep outside of particular restrictive style of music in what they create, and constantly rehash existing genres, experiment and seek for new avantgarde solutions in music. This may make the music of Terra Impressionum seem somewhat unusual for the local metal scene as its components do not only include metal subgenres but also art rock, blues, jazz.
Terra Impressionum have lived through 5 years of joint activity, the album "TI:tanium", out February 1, 2008, and "Transmitting Device", out March 6, 2010; a video shot for one of the debut album's songs, three dozen gigs in Crimea and Ukraine, including participation in festivals "Muzykalniy Ostrov" (Kharkov, Ukraine), "Kondor-fest" (Kremenchug, Ukraine), "Death Metal Assault" (Uzhgorod, Ukraine), "Premiera" (Kherson, Ukraine), in whose final in 2006, the band won in the nominations "Best keyboard player" and "Best festival song". In August of 2009, the band had represented Ukraine at the 5th annual international festival "Metal Crowd Fest" (Rechitsa, Belarus), and in March of 2010 the band had an own 10-days "Convergence tour 2010" around Ukraine, Slovakia and Czech Republic.
Terra Impressionum doing mixing not only of music genres, but of different languages too. The lyrics of second album "Transmitting Device" are written in 6 languages, such as Russian, Ukrainian, English, German, Latin and Elvish (Quenya).

Don't you have any release yet? I've read in the uperside of this page "Usually we only add already accomplished bands with at least one full-length release", so maybe the staff members won't accept your suggestion... But you sound great, I hope you'll have the chance to release a CD soon ;)
