10:10 - Darth Satanious I am up for people covering songs and giving them a spin in style and sound BUT never fuck with the guitar solo. When a band changes the guitar solo that cover is ruined for me. Breaking the Law from Arch Enemy is an example.
08:27 - Darth Revan And the arch enemy song is a cover of breaking the law... If there's a song that should probably NOT be made heavier out there, it's breaking the law
08:07 - no one like the hypothermia Svarti Loghin split
07:50 - Darth Revan Huh, sounds cash grabby to me if that's the case
07:37 - Fearmeister Which is totally pointless, the two songs are on the japanese editions of their most recent albums. You can hear them right now.
07:32 - Darth Revan Speaking of, apparently there's a Kreator/Arch Enemy split coming up
07:24 - M C Vice I can't do splits. Can't even touch my toes.
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!".

Side project of AAL frontman Tosin Abasi and members of The Mars Volta and Suicidal Tendencies. Not the most metal sound in the world, but there are clear metal undertones. Interesting art!
08.03.2012 - R'Vannith
Wouldn't call them djent but yeah interesting stuff.
31.03.2012 - João Pirucas
This is much more Jazz Fusion than Djent but it's awesome nonetheless. That connotation is there just because Tosin and Javier are part of the band, in my opinion. Good addition to the site anyways. +1

Great band with a great album (Lingua Franca), Terrazas, Reyes, Abasi & Moore, fresh sound, awesome performance and production with awesome drum works.

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.

Needs at least one full length.

Ugh those weak screams...a better vocalist would be a huge improvement.

Insense deserves to be on Metal Storm because they are not much known outside of norway. Insense is a fantastic bands and should be heard by so many others than just norwegians that are interested in that kind of music.
The vocalist/guitarist Tommy Hjelm also plays with Benea Reach sometimes

It has been a while since being really blown away from a new discovery.
ProFusion is a bit hard to categorize, combining Progressive Metal riffs, Eclectic stuff a la Beardfish, and catchiness like, well... It just gets stuck in your mind and won't go away.
I've yet to have listened to their first album, but their second one (Rewotower) has really blown me away.
The first song of the album (Ghost House) is available on their Reverbnation page.
25.07.2013 - LeKiwi
I'm just not impressed with bands like this these days...all this type of prog is the same. Sounds like watered down DT...
15.08.2014 - elt
very good...I also listened to a preview of their third album, really nice ...

Ace Of Hearts is a "supergroup" with members of Secret Sphere, Icon & the Black Roses and Odd Dimension, his debut album "Monster" is a MUST for the fans of the genre!

It's kinda rare to see a band with old influences nowadays. And, to be honest, I think that what they say about rock'n'roll is true:
"ROCK'N'ROLL IS NOT ABOUT TECHNIQUES AND 32-NOTES-A-SECOND SOLOS, IT'S ABOUT TOUCHING PEOPLE WITH YOUR MUSIC".

It's kinda rare to see a band with old influences nowadays?
....uhhhh, which planet are you living on?

"Sår" (Sar) is a solo project in Depressive Suicidal Black Metal (DSBM) genre which started in 2008 by its only member "Don Andolini" in the north of Iran. The word "Sår" has been taken from one of the Sortsind's song titles with the same name, and it means "Wounds" in English.

...without distortion or guitar. hah, this could be too much but share your thoughts.
09.05.2011 - Meller
A great example of having fun with your music without falling flat on your arse reeking of diarrhea of your own pretentiousness... :) As Array said, may be too much for some people, but they are great. See 'em live if you ever have the chance!

Binding Shade is the first Melodic Death Metal band in Jordan - Middle East.
The music of Binding Shade is unique, emotional, and catchy. The lyrics were written in poetic form by the vocalist Ahmad Alhour - who is an established poet - and the guitarist Darem Aqrabawi.
The band has released their first album Rendering Void [EP] on March 6th 2010 and currently recording their 1st Debut Album.

For me personally it's always very difficult to find a Thrash band with a vocalist who don't get on my nerves after a few songs. I really like the singer and the style of the band. To quote a review " Neurasthenia is one of the better newcomers on the 21st century wave of thrash metal horizon and fans of the genre might want to check them out. I for one think this band might someday become a European household name if they make some more progress and I hope to see them live someday." (taken from www.archaic-magazine.com)
More infos about the band: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neurasthenia_%28band%29
I HOPE YOU WILL ADD THEM! Thanks & cheers, Stefan

Weird Anxiety is a Progressive dark metal band hailing from the Himalayas who are the pioneers of Himalayan black metal. Due to location problems and lack of distribution facilities in the region, the band feels that it's music is not able to reach its true audience.Platforms like metal storm bridge the gap.
09.03.2011 - Metalomorphis
Great music, I'm surprised by the musicianship O_o

The Seer features members of Australian Thrash royalty Mortal Sin. The band are preparing to release their debut EP "Prologue", which has already been given perfect reviews and praise from fans, promoters and venues. Certainly a band to look out for, The Seer are seeking to expand their network of friends to get the word out across the globe.

New full-length album kicks ass.
09.03.2011 - Kuroboshi
Thought it was kinda metalcore-ish. Nevertheless, interesting trash, nothing spectacular though.
27.03.2011 - ChrisSteele
Mathcore / Progressive Metalcore. Maybe that is the mix :P
01.06.2011 - torwar
New album "Sutra" out now in Denmark. Europe : May/June 2011. Incl former Hatesphere singer Jonathan Albrechtsen. Exciting stuff. Call it what you want. It's more than just "technical death thrash". Enjoy :)
and yes, there's some Meshuggah-influence to be heard...as well...
new video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBO2jq7KVpI
or just look uo their facebook-site

A bit more experimental than 'A Blaze...' ..... 'Sardonic Wrath' Darkthrone. Those songs in the myspace ain't the most experimental tracks, but give a good hint of their basic sound. Their Debut "Return To Sodom" was released in 2010.
