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!".

Obscure, esoteric black metal executed wonderfully. Kathaaria is a good reference point for the sound, or one could also easily compare them to Dodecahedron, Blut Aus Nord, Void Paradigm or The Great Old Ones.

Violent Omen is a Thrash Metal band formed in 2009.
Till now, there are total 3 full-length albums released. Those are "Infernal Express (2010)", "Lunatic's Revenge (2011)", and "L.U.N.A.C.Y. (2013)".
Since the 2nd album, Lunatic's Revenge (2011), Violent Omen feature obviously more technical, melodic, progressive, and faster elements in their music. After "L.U.N.A.C.Y. (2013)" released in 2013, I would like to characterize their sound as a well-crossed mix of CORONER, ARTILLERY and TOXIK. Outstanding Technical Thrash meets Traditional NWOBHM.
Floods: Guitars (rhythm), Vocals
Yuriy Sinitsky: Drums
Metal Priest: Bass, Vocals (backing)

Although being a regular member of Eluveitie and a session musician for many metal bands playing fokl tones, Anna decided to start her own musical project.
Her album is energetic, atmospheric, heavy at times and she is very enthusiastic as a singer, not to mention the quality of her vocals.
By releasing the album solely with the help of fans (a KickStarter project), with no help from a studio or whatsoever, the chances are she can keep the performance she has now with very few other people influencing it.
Another point to make - she caught the attention of Anneke van Giersbergen with whom she toured Europe.
