23:23 - s_t_s hey not that I miss them so but fo you know where band Deathstars's gone ? Seem they vanished...
21:47 - Risto It's their own tongue-in-cheek description. The vocals tip it over to the avantgarde side I think.
19:55 - Moose Many thanks to whoever introduced me to Astronoid via the shoutbox the other day. Their new album, Air, is magnificent. I can even understand why some refer to their genre as "Dream Thrash".
19:12 - Opethian @Apothecary, I got to meet him when I saw them play at Denver this past January. Dude is down to earth and was a privilege to get to meet him and Dallas \M/
18:18 - Apothecary Yeah, you wouldn't want to get in a fight with him though. Just check out this vid lol, apparently at this show some dumbass was throwing beer on his pedals [link]
18:01 - Marcel Hubregtse Karl is a small,. albeit quite fattish mf. He is smaller than I am. And I am only 5'11"
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!".

A very heavy technical prog metal and screamo band from the United States that have become very well known since the release of As The Roots Undo, their second album.
The next unreleased album contains the tracks Ritual of Names parts 1 and 2. These have a very prog and doomy feel to them.

Wouldn't call it doom really, just post-hardcore/screamo. Which isn't really metal. Nevertheless this one has LOTS of grindcore elements in it so I guess they have a place here, about as much as any hardcore band featured already. And also awesome band!

Japanese band, with two J-pop singers Rie Kaneko/Rei Kuromiya (clean vocals) with Ladybeard (growls). This band is very similar to Babymetal, in terms of musical style and comes very close in awesomeness. However, Ladybeard (real name: Richard Magarey) is a bearded, cross-dressing, Australian wrestler. They mix genres, the music is well-crafted and metal is present everywhere!

They still need a full-length release to be added. Once that happens, hopefully soon, they can join our club.

Some of you can know this band - 3teeth was a support with Primus to last Tool tour. 3teeth music contain some modular industrial sounds, heavy guitars, march tempo and some great atmosphere. Their new record is gonna be more metal, so I think they can be here, since Combichrist is.

The band's style resembles post-hardcore and progressive rock, often incorporating rapid changes of tempo and mood framed in complex guitar melodies and technical drumming. They utilize both male and female vocals ranging from soft singing to loud wails and screams.

Everyday I Die was founded in summer 2014 when Kohlhaas and Strid first got in touch with each other via Facebook. Strid happened to be looking for another challenge during the creative hiatus of his band Soilwork when some extremely interesting demo recordings by Kohlhaas came to his attention. Kohlhaas was thrilled that Strid out of all people, one of his favourite contemporary metal vocalists, commented so favourably on his material. Of course he used this unique opportunity and forwarded more examples of his musical ideas to the singer, receiving another positive reaction from Sweden: "Great composings, man!" Strid promptly enthused by e-mail, adding: "We should definitely do something together." The guitarist didn't need to be asked twice and, together with drummer Michael Stein and bassist Claude Ewert, produced the debut album Isolation at the Bazement Studio under the direction of Markus Teske (Vanden Plas, Saga, among others).

The reason why I believed this band should be here is because they are an upcoming band that has became popular rapidly. Them and babymetal are the bands in this generation that are bringing something to the game of metal with wagakki band they are using traditional Japanese folk instrument and mixing it with metal and it sounds amazing. That is my reason of them being in this website thank you for your time

They are an up and coming Canadian band, performing original styled, different music in an otherwise repetitive, monotonous world. They sign about important topics in addition to the usual nonsense. They have release 2 studio EP's and numerous live recordings so far, and are working on a full length album currently.

Brutal and technically proficient Death Metal band. Two full Length Albums titled: With Flesh Unbound in 2010 and Iconoclasm in 2013 which is well worth listening to in full via: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcAF6rq-oWQ

Silent Elegy is a symphonic metal, soprano female fronted band from China. Their debut album has just been released and I can assure anyone who likes symphonic or symphonic power metal bands that this band is totally worth listening to.
Many will find the vocalist's voice is really close to Tarja's voice in her early years with Nightwish.
In summary, a great symphonic metal band with a soprano female fronted vocalist which is perfectly suitable for this website.
My favourite three songs from their debut album "Gone with the Wind" are (Redemption, Valkyries and Indelible Memory).

BARK is a new pack of Antwerp stray dogs of extreme sound. Infectious dirty riffs and a voice that tears your speakers apart. They serve their tunes raw, unpolished, gritty and dark!
Ive seen the band lately and was blown away by their energy!! this longed for more and there debut cd Voice Of Dog is awesome !!
they play at graspop 2016 and nummers festivals in europe !!

I am suggesting to add Warfather to Metal Storm because It is good death metal in the vein of Morbid Angel. Warfather is one of Steve Tuckers projects. I think his main project next to Morbid Angel. The first release ("Orchestrating the Apocalypse" ) was released 2014. Aside from an old school production the record had mainly positive reviews. The follow up is about to be released this year (Greyhaze Records) and was produced by Erik Rutan.
Though one of the rather "generic" DM bands I think this is one of the best and more promising.
