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.

I'm just not impressed with bands like this these days...all this type of prog is the same. Sounds like watered down DT...

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".

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!

this band definitely deserves place on this site!

I agree that this band deserves place on this site. It's one of the finest hard rock/progressive rock bands of Canada.

AraPacis (Ara-Patches) is a female fronted metal band hailing from Montreal, 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.

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)

Obzerv is a metal band from Rethymno (Crete), formed in late 2011. Musical influences? A little bit of HxC, Thrash, a couple of blast-beats here & there, occasionally "scream-my-lungs-out" vocals, all played with a progressive perspective! They have released a self-financed 3-song promo (Promo 2012), and in the summer of 2014 their selftitled album came via Trailblazer Records. So far they have shared the stage with bands such as SepticFlesh, Rotting Christ and Grave Digger among others..

I want Winter's Wake to be on metal storm because they personally asked me to do a review about their EP "Yellow Moon". I was able to write an awesome review and no other website has them.

a very unique band with odd song structures and techniques, utilizing a wide range of vocal styles and lyrical topics. despite numerous line up changes in the 4 year existence of the band, they have stayed together and stayed strong in a difficult region for underground, original music.

This band was a key element in Australia back in the 90's who toured and supported big bands such as Slayer and Machine Head. At their peak in relation to the metal scene at that time Allegiance had an original sound of incredible energy distinctive from other big bands. Allegiance was a HUGE staple in the Australian metal scene, I myself and the majority of Australian metal-heads would clearly acknowledge and honour such a great leader who represented the Australian metal scene to the world of metal! Thanks for reading.
Two studio albums: D.E.S.T.I.T.U.T.I.O.N (1994) - Skinman (1996)

Engage should be on Metal Storm because Engage was a great Power Metal band and people need to know about them. Engage tunes are lyrically creative, melodic, dynamic, fast, complex and interesting. It's good stuff!

Salythia's main goal is to shred and kick ass, plain and simple. They don't care for the fame, they don't care for the money, they care for the music, the fans, and the experience of performing live in front of a roaring crowd.
Salythia gives what the metalheads want, including ripping solos, relentless guitar riffs, mosh pits, pure aggression, a strong live presence, intricate songwriting, and a pulsating power that will punch you in the mouth and infect your mind.
All the members derive from different backgrounds of metal music theory, but the fact that they can all come together as one unit to create a unique and signature style is worth noting, and worth seeing for yourself.

Def-Con-One was founded over a decade ago by Antton Lant on drums (former drummer for black metal legends Venom 1999-2009) and Johnny Hunter on guitars. They have released 2 albums, Warface and II and also an EP 'Brutal Force and Ignorance' which all hit you hard from start to finish. Bloodstock Festival actually described Def-Con-One as coming across like a bar fight between Machine Head, Slayer and Pantera.

They are a lesser known band from Austria that seems to fit with many others on this site. One listen & you will be convinced. They have received many respectable reviews as an up an coming band that focuses mainly on today's version of traditional metal.
