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.
23.03.2016 - SYCON
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!

It is a symbol of the wisdom in most ancient religions of the world. Raven is a carrier of souls across the River of Eternity and a binding link between the fragile edge of the World of Shadows and the World of the Living. Initially, the Corvus band was created as a melodic symphonic gothic metal project, but in the process of development and quality growth joins itself the best of the different trends and styles of rock. 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. During its long history Royal Corvus band many times was engaged in various kinds of rock and bike festivals in Kharkov, and outside it.

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.

The man behind Abramakabra is Steven Abram and he is a Italian, American composer and this album is nothing short of a revelation, I had never heard of the band till about a month ago and this album is without a doubt one of the strangest albums recorded in the last few years. I know nothing about Steven and his previous work but I do know that one this album he plays guitars, bass, drums, percussion, piano and all also supply's a array of noises and effects. This is a weird mix of Ufomammut, Sunn O))), Electric Wizard, Kyuss, Neurosis and 70's Space Rock sounds. Its a strange hybrid of doom, drone and psychedelia that is experimental and varied to the point where reviewing this album is a real challenge. As well as his multi-talented self, Steven also enlists the help of guest musicians Vincent J Matthews, Angelo and Savior Goldwin Keyla Northon, the last of which is cited as prominent members of the New York noise scene.

A seriously kick ass band from the NYC area. TJS is a line up of truly talented and veteran musicians from the NYC Metal and Hardcore scene, The Judas Syndrome are a hard hitting, thunderous wall of aggression and visible frenzy that focus on returning to the metal birthed from Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax as well as to uphold the progress of modern metal since the Big 4 era.

Ignite the Ibex are a technical death metal band based in Sydney, Australia, founded in 2006. They released their debut self-titled EP in 2010. Widely known for being the first band to introduce the eight-string guitar to Australia. Delivering technical riffs at gut-wrenching low tunning, backed by relentless blast beats. This is a band that's on the rise

Beethoven R. is born of the second dissolution of the glamurosos Bella Bestia, band of Madrid that in the 80 edited three discs of study. After a short meeting of the band in the middle of the nineties, which it was including to (low) Pepe Mari San the second and Jose Luis Saiz (guitar), there comes a new separation of the rest of members that gives place to a new band, which at first will continue working as Bella Bestia.
