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!".

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.

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.

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".

"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.

I saw their vid "Hats Made of Veal" some years ago. I haven't seen or heard it for months and months and months but I think it's in my head right now... no idea why... Apparently they have at least one more I haven't seen, and two albums released over the last 5-10 years
18.02.2011 - Promonex
They aren't in the database yet?! Holy shit! Vote this shit up! I'll accept it by the end of the week.
18.02.2011 - Axe Argonian
I am completely in favor of this suggestion, for Sludge bands never disappoint me. Their sound reminds me of the Georgia sludge scene, yet the Abominable Iron Sloth are from Washington and California! Go figure.
18.02.2011 - Meller
Sludge for people with ADD... and such a promising band with two strong full lengths to prove their worth. Yeah, do add it!
20.02.2011 - Oriôn
Because this is imo a talented band, they brought out 1 album and the next one will come soon.
It would be nice having them here so people from outside Belgium might bump onto them and discover this nice sound they have.
Also they bring a really good live act and they already played at a big metal festival as "Graspop metal Meeting"
16.02.2011 - gaud2029
I think it's their first full length, they are just starting.
the reason why it should be on metalstorm is because there are some killer riff in that free album they give, that only should be a good reason!
ps : not sure about the style name ..
13.12.2011 - Dargor
This band clearly has its place here and it would help them gain more popularity.
15.02.2011 - Novas

It's the best death metal band in Indonesia ever, just check it out and put in metal storm list!
15.02.2011 - Ludicus
Hmm, I thought they already were on here.
20.11.2014 - RajaKafir
This band is the most consistant Indonesian band in producing albums so far..

Anlipnes is a funeral death doom metal band, coming from Turkey - not realy well known about metal music. Nevertheless, last year they have released their debut album, entilted "Inanis Caelum". Very promising band, with amazing atmosphere in their music. It definitely deserves a place up here on MS.

Oleg Izotov is Russia's top session guitarist, having played alongside such artists as U.D.O., KoRn, Napalm Death, Slot, Dream Theater, AnJ, and Apocalyptica. He has released a solo album which is absolutely fantastic, and despite looking like a corpse this guy is one of the most memorable and technically skilled shredders I have ever heard. I urge you to check out the two songs he did with Nookie from Slot.
15.02.2011 - ScreamingSteelUS
Viper Inc. is a killer Russian death metal band with one album out so far, featuring guest appearances from Russian metal legends like Oleg Izotov, Nookie (of Slot), and Nikolay Karpenko. They play a strange blend of death metal and an almost goth-like industrial edge. It's great stuff.
13.02.2011 - __SpOO__
I think that if it is possible in here to be added bands that do not exists anymore, guess this one is a must cause it is related with James LaBrie. As he sing in that band before join DT.
13.02.2011 - Fjoelsvind
They should be on this site, because it is a good and underrated band with a lot of potential.
Also, they produce a new album called "Escape The Empire", which will be released at the 29th of April this year.
Although they're an underground band in Germany, but I think this fact will change when they bring out this new album.
They need to have a chance to become more popular and get maybe international. They're worth it!
In my opinion their new stuff is amazing and because of this they should be on Metal Storm!

Noctura is a US band playing a mixture of rock/metal with alternative and symphonic music. They have produced a few demos and have released their first studio album in June 2011 titled 'Surrender The Sun'.

This band just released their debut full-length " Infected With Violence" on Butchered Records. They have an official forum on thrashunlimited.com. Definitely keep an eye on these guys.

Awesome fucking band, must be added !
