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!".

"Influenced by the scandinavian extreme-prog scene, but at the same time free from the US heavy-prog technical excesses, the band developped a new kind of ambiant metal, featuring sophisticated structures." For fans of Leprous, Pain Of Salvation, Shaolin Death Squad, and Opeth's acoustic verses :)

"Two weirdos get together to express themselves in all possible genres they can, only sent through the prism of metal." Solid experimental metal...really.

Algor is possibly the best black metal band from Slovak Republic. Their first album Uder pohanskeho hnevu is a classic of Slovak BM (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBWXUPdyYLE). They released their second album Hierofania this year with some great atmospheric and aggressive tracks (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tz_d8JRpSM8).

This is the band of Mike Mills (guest on Ayreon's "The Theory of Everything" album). It's basically a one-man band. They recorded a crazy amount of EP's, changing style every time, in my opinion metal is one of the main influence. Plus, a full lenght album is out and another one in on its way.

"Imagine if a death metal band embraced many of the ideas of black metal: Psychedelic tendencies, experimental and bizarrely broken-up songwriting, schizophrenic ever-shifting vocals, and harrowing atmosphere. You'd have a fucked-up take on death metal like it's rarely been heard before. This is is indeed seriously fucked-up music that constantly jars you into a new place, a new vision, a new way of hearing madness." - Austin Weber, www.nocleansinging.com.

1.) They are an active Christian Melodic Death Metal band. Those are five full adjectives (more than your average band).
2.) They want to be?
3.) They have a new release.

Bang Tango are a funk-influenced hard rock/glam metal band from the original 80's hair metal scene. On paper, their music sounds like it shouldn't work, but, in practice, it's actually pretty interesting to listen to, even if you're not a huge funk fan. They've released six studio albums, Psycho Café (1989), Dancin' On Coals (1991), Love After Death (1994), Ready To Go (2004), From The Hip (2006) and Pistol Whipped In The Bible Belt (2011), the last three after various attempts at returning from their disbanding in 1995 (the returns were in 1996 to 1998, 1999 and 2001 to the present day). I'd say they're worth checking out if you want to hear a hair metal band with a somewhat unique sound to them.
