01:58 - Ap46 Well, anything would get better if Laure kicks in, though i fear she was a bit overused in Corpo Mente, she displayed all her vocal ability in every Corpo-Mente's track, which gets just a little bit tiresome by the end.
01:51 - Mechaniacal At this point, I need Laure in everything Igorrr-related. I'd go as far as to say his music would be empty to me without her. Laure has one of the best voices out there.
01:45 - Ap46 Well, it's a mix of acoustic, opera, trip hop, with little touches of metal here and there. It's pretty much avant-garde but a lot more straight forward than Igorrr's main discography.
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!".

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.

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".

The Canadian rock band was popular in the late 1970s through the 1980s. Triumph began building their reputation across North America as a live band, peaking in the early 1980s as an import before interest gradually declined. Today, the power trio continue to receive radio airplay on Classic Rock stations and are perhaps best remembered for their positive message songs and their vibrant energetic concerts, complete with extravagant pyrotechnical light shows. Their popularity was extremely strong in Texas, where they first received strong radio attention; but, they were stellar standouts at California's US Festival, and garnered a considerable fan base and radio attention by regularly touring the world, especially throughout North America and Europe. Like their fellow Canadians Rush and Saga.

If Journey and Rush are on this site, so should Triumph. Rik Emmett is a guitar god!
22.01.2012 - malymich
this band definitely deserves place on this site!
15.09.2014 - Kitharistas87
I agree that this band deserves place on this site. It's one of the finest hard rock/progressive rock bands of Canada.

Formed in 2003 by guitarist Jerry Fielden, their main goal was to re-create some of the orignal aspects of 1970's Hard Rock and Progressive Rock and fuse it together with early 21st Century Progressive, Doom & Gothic Metal to make an interesting metal hybrid. Their debut album ''So Many Leapers'' was released in April of 2006. and their second album ''Consequences Of Dreams'' was released on October 5, 2009. The band is now working on their 3rd album.
22.04.2011 - Jerryfie
AraPacis is more Classic/Prog Metal than Metalcore, AraPacis has shared the stage with The Agonist, Raven and Anvil, amongst other bands.

Not metalcore... somethin' else. Appeared with the closing track on this femme-metal (voices) compilation http://www.metalstorm.net/bands/album.php?album_id=32808 Third album 'Netherworld' released end of 2011 on Ravenheart Music, and 'Déjà-Vu' EP self-released at end of March, this year (now available for free DL from the band's site, along with about six other older songs) (it appears DV EP is 4 re-recordings of older songs - so you can hear So Many Leapers' title-track twice, and find the advances they've made over 7 years)

this is a really cool Venezuelan band, their songs are very well structured, and they have good lyrics.
Venezuela is a country with a lot of talent, but no one has ever cared about it (in our own country), if you see only one band in the MS lists it's not because we don't have more, it's because nobody has taken a few minutes to include them. it is very hard o be musician in Venezuela, we are known for the worst of our land, and not for the good things we have. i think this band, as many others, deserve an opportunity to rise. Someday i will be posting my own band here too, hopefully wishing to be known, the same way i want for this band and for many others.
Sexto Sonar deserves a chance, it's a band with potential, it will be good to see them here.
I Have a question: can I use a Facebook page instead of a myspace to post a band??

This is a good thrash metal band from Annecy, France. They started at the end of the 80's and i saw them live it was great ! They played 2 Slayer songs, the singer came in the audience to sing with the metalheads ! It's a well-known band in the south east of France.

DELTA is a Neoclassical/Prog Rock/Metal band, formed by Rodrigo Guerra (Guitar) and Nicolas Quinteros (Keyboard) after intermittent intends. They struggled through some years, so, half way there, Santiago Kegevic joined the band. In mid 2003 they could find the talented guitarist, Jorge Sepulveda. Later on, Rodrigo Guerra, left the band, and Benjamin Lechuga took his place and joined the band at the same time as Felipe del Valle who would be the new vocalist. Delta's base was formed and their professional career started at the end of 2003 when they had the chance to record their first CD. It was recorded at late 2003 / early 2004 and its name is "APOLLYON IS FREE". Once the album was recorded, they finally could find the drummer that they were looking for, Andres Rojas. Delta was playing live in all 2004 and 2005. Definitely, the 2005 was a good year; Benjamin Lechuga was endorsed by Ibanez Guitars! And in the middle of 2005, they were called to play with STRATOVARIUS in Chile. After that, in early 2006, Delta started to work in the recording sessions for the new album called "BLACK & COLD", Benjamin Lechuga and Santiago Kegevic were endorsed by Magma Strings. Also there is a formation change in the band; Jorge Sepulveda decides to leave the band for personal reasons. Delta on 2007 opened shows for 2 worldwide metal bands: SYMPHONY X and VISION DIVINE. The year 2008 couldn't start better. The band toured through the South of Chile and on March 1st we opened the show for DREAM THEATER in Chile being elected for that job by Mike Portnoy himself. In april 15th, Delta opened for "Riders on the storm: THE DOORS" too. And now, with their third studio album called "CRASHBREAKER" (Featuring Metal Mike Chlasiack) and their first live DVD "LIVE AT THE BEGINNING", Delta is considered one of the most successful metal band in Chile appearing in lots of webzines, magazines (Rolling Stones included), some radio stations, fanclub and more. Hard working and trying to do the best music they are capable to offer are their main objectives for the future.

Crowned in Earth was formed by Kevin Lawry in 2008. After forming his own Death / Doom band, Silent Winter, Kevin decided to venture more into the traditional side of Doom. After a self-released EP titled 'Welcome To The Brotherhood Of The Crown' the foundation was laid down to make a bigger step into creating a full-length album with a stronger focus on the song writing.
During the autumn of 2009, with the progress of the new songs coming along Crowned In Earth signed with Shadow Kingdom Records. This time also saw the recruit of drummer Darin McCloskey (Pale Divine, Falcon, ex Sinister Realm) step in to play on the album.
This year has seen the release of Crowned In Earths debut album 'Visions Of The Haunted'. The new songs have demonstrated a higher level of musicianship, a more compelling emotional range both dark in effect and tight in their grooves. This is document to Kevin's most powerful song writing yet!

Lyijykomppania was one of the bands that started Timo Rautiainen's carrieer (whose another project, Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus, is already here) and has featured also Tapio Wilska who was for many years Finntroll's frontman. The band has been active since 1981 which makes it a really old metal band in Finnish scale. The most recent album is from 2010.
And of course the music is outstanding. Even though I don't listen a lot to heavy, this band is an expection. Also their sound is unique.

Unlike most recent metal bands, which mainly draw influence from hardcore and groove metal, Evil Survives provides an unabashed, technically proficient throwback to the REAL heavy stuff such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Agent Steel, and a bit of Racer X for good measure. Inspiring and charismatic vocals, soaring guitar leads, beautiful harmonies, galloping bass, relentless drumming, it's all here, folks! Evil Survives is flying the metal flag high, and they sound damn proud to be doing it so well!

The first impression offered by this band is a band of "teen and girls rock." but it can be seen behind a sound very "suomi metal", with distorted guitars, strong and active, with fast drums rolls powerful, emotional vocals, keyboards consistent with roles in the melodies, this is reminiscent of bands like HIM, The 69 Eyes Negative, Reflexion, Charon, Entwine or sometimes Nightwish. It is a band that makes music very "catchy" and commercial, close to pop music (especially in the vocals), but their sound and musical quality, based on merit of the musicians or producers is yet another example of versatile metal that has adopted in Finland. Unlike other pop rock bands with that finnish sound; as Negative, Lovex (for Now) can be called in some way: metal music. if you want to confirm what i say, i suggest you hear: If She's Near, Writings on the Wall, Anyone Anymore, Bleeding, Die a Little More. I hope that we agree. Thanks
