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!".

These guys only had two albums and are on extended hiatus. However, the single "Sadist Ways" made the rounds and gave their first album a decent level exposure. This is one of the only bands to come out of the 2000's that still brought that 80's vibe thrash that is pretty much dead, even when it comes to new releases from the bands that created the genre. I am convinced that the only reason these guys did not hit it big is because they were overrun by the slew of metalcore bands that were taking over at the time.

Formerly a regular name on the Austin metal scene the band dissolved in 1998, but founding member and guitarist Chris Litz resurrected the band name in 2014 with a whole new lineup and sound: drummer: J.R. Pena (Infinite Terror, Exidium, Critical Disorder), bassist: Rafa Mejia (Catarsis Incarne, Grecco) and vocalist Rick Clark (Meyvn, Sacred Realm, Heartless (UK)) expertly craft their own brand of power metal, anchored in Chris's unique guitar attack and driven with solid rhythmic hooks, and soaring vocals.

Liquid Society is a female fronted metal band from Seinäjoki, Finland.
The whole story started at 2007 but with current line-up the band has been active since autumn 2008. LS plays melodic, female fronted metal with awesome guitar riffs and mind-blowing melodies.
By the beginning of 2014 the band has released four self-made and self-financed recordings: "The Burning (Demo)", "Broken Words (EP)", "Fifteen Years/Escape (Split single with MindMirror)" and "From Dreams to Reality (Album)". There is still more to come!

The consequence was punching a wedge deep into the consciousness of local music fans under the sign of heavy -power . The biggest success of the campaign rich in numerous performances in various parts of the country was to release EP Fri Magic Dagger . Unfortunately, the relentless fight on the front lines affected the state of personal team. The team is preparing to re- deploy on the battlefield , and the burden of conducting activities will rest on the shoulders of the following composition : Melchior Jasek ( lead guitar) , Adam Polanowski (drums ) , Simon Dżumak ( vocals), Przemek Mirek ( rhythm guitar ) and Tom Marmot ( bass )
