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!

The music is written by Wouter and Remco van der Veen, who choose for a song-oriented approach of the genre. Armed Cloud's songs are characterised by in-your-face guitar riffs; catchy melodies; thick grooves; atmospheric keyboards; melodic drums; and powerhouse vocals.

Vermilion was formed in 2009 when guitarist Timmy Segers and keyboardist Michael Penson met and discovered they shared an interest in progressive music. With drummer Tom Vansteenkiste and Tom Everaert they play a unique brand of instrumental progressive metal that incorporates odd time signatures and a wide range of influences including jazz and fusion.

Abzofran was founded in 2010 (9th May to be more precise) and after going under several line-up changes the band released their first official 5-song-demo entitled "Liquid Beauty Demo" which will serve as a prelude for Abzofran's first full-length album "Dawn Of Neon" coming out late spring 2015.

Preludio Ancestral formed in 2002, with another name: Celestial Dream. The band changed his name to Preludio Ancestral in 2005 when they decided to take other musical directions.
The name Preludio Ancestral was taken from two opposite words: "Prelude" (what is to come) and "Ancestral" (what happened). A nice merger to express the mindset we have today, a good balance.
Leonardo L. Gatti Leader and Founder at that time took his first steps with Javier Valenzuela on bass, Melisa Gatti on keyboards, William Ferreira on drums and Romina Cáceres on vocals
By that time the band used to play hard rock musical style but day after day, the new compositions were rapidly becoming into power metal style and there were many members who have played in Preludio and have helped what the band is today.
Preludio Ancestral has performed live in several shows both capital and in the province of Bs.As Argentina. In 2003 the band released a demo with 6 songs named: Sueño Celestial (Celestial Dream).
In 2005 the guitar player Sebastian Nunez enters the band giving a touch more power to their music and near the actual style of Preludio Ancestral (Ancestral Prelude)

this band is new but sounds like they should have been around in the 80's ....alot of people on here seem to like bands like guns'n'roses , motley crue, cinderella, dangerous toys and wasp. if you like those bands , you will dig this band. they just released an album after having completed a successful crowdfunding campaign and the album is available in digital and cd format. here is a recent review of the album from sleazeroxx.com
Stacey Sleaze - vocals
Cleve - guitar and backing vocals
Xav - bass and backing vocals
Dan - drums and backing vocals
Produced, mixed and mastered by Kevin Jardine.
In 2015 it's becoming increasingly rare to find straight-up rock bands hailing from Canada or the USA, instead most of the talent pool is gravitating towards modern folk or electronic dance music. That's why I was delighted to find this gem of a band rooted in Montreal, Canada. With the name Sleazy Way Out, and an album called Satisfy Me that features cover artwork of a girl in a mini skirt putting on lipstick in a dirty washroom, it quickly becomes crystal clear what genre this group are catering to.
On first listen to Satisfy Me one might think they have stumbled across a long-lost Cinderella recording -- but no, this is brand new. That vocal sound you're hearing is about as close to a second coming of Tom Keifer as I've ever heard. Sleazy Way Out lead vocalist Stacey Sleaze is a true tenor, but not in the usual shrill manor of most tenor rock vocalists, instead he has that full bodied growl that only Keifer could completely pull off.
There are some noteworthy points to Sleazy Way Out's sound, and the songwriting is simple straight-ahead fun driving hard rock -- no fillers nor ballads are to be found on Satisfy Me. I might also add that the band's songs contain arguably better hooks than most other new bands of the 'sleaze' genre. Guitar fans will find plenty of tasteful chops to steal and the solid drumbeats and bass lines are slammin'. Most notable are the songs "Born To Booze", "Hotter Than Fire" and "Voodoo Queen" that formulate the lethal mix of pop-metal with a bluesy punch reminiscent of latter Cinderella.
Sleazy Way Out's future may be bright, having already opened for established acts such as Crashdiet, Faster Pussycat and John Corabi. Fans of '80s rock will eat Satisfy Me up... and crank it up.

This band only made one album in 1995 and sadly disappeared only a few short years after. The album was entitled "Of Hell" and its a decent example of classic death metal from the 90's.

Born from the collaboration of vocalist Stéphane Fradet (ex-Falkirk) and guitarist Grégory Giraudo (Coexistence), the Parallel Minds entity, after 2 years of hard work and dedication is finally ready to be spread to the world.
Their first album entitled Headlong Disaster is sure to please fans of Melodic and Powerful Heavy Metal. Influences range from Nevermore and Symphony X to Pink Floyd and Scorpions and everything in between.
Joining this metal duet is Franky Costanza, "drummer extraordinaire" from Dagoba, who layed down some truly amazing drum fills to the songs.
Headlong Disaster also benefited from the incredible ears of the famous Jacob Hansen, who handled the mastering of the album.
The result is an outstanding collection of 8 carefully crafted and deeply emotional tracks that are sure to set the heart of any true metalhead on fire.

The K2 Project is an instrumental progressive metal band. The band features two members, Kevin Lahey and Kevin Coppola, hence, The K2 Project. The project began as just one song intended to be released for the two musician's other band, Mersa. Due to a clash of styles, the song was released through a separate name. This was then expanded upon with more and more songs being released. Before they knew it, The K2 Project had more than a full albums worth of material recorded and released. At this point, the project decided to remaster all of the old material and have a professional release to all possible mediums. The K2 Project is now continuing to write with the intention of releasing much more.

I can add all information about the band myself once the band is accepted.

As the rhythm guitarist of the band may i start by saying that i have personally used metalstorm since the start of my listening to metal from a very young age. This website has undoubtebly been the main source of my expansion into this music from the very beginning and still is, in a big way. Our band TørmenT started out as a thrash/death metal cover band in 2007. We did multiple small local shows for two years and after that point the majority of he band had to undertake 2 years of compulsory military service, after which the band reformed with a different vocalist. At this point in 2012, the band started writing their own music and even though they now have quite a few songs, time and life obligations only leave a minimal time per year for the entire band to be together, and so important things like live shows, recording and promotion generally move slowly. However, late last year they recorded two of their songs, and these can be found on the facebook page (inc soundcloud, bandcamp and youtube). Since playing their own material they have played various local shows in Cyprus, some of which opening for larger bands like the Greek metallers W.E.B from Athens.
It would be mine, and the entire band's honour to be placed in Metalstorm.

They don't really have a website and the band's on hold so I actually gave the MA link. But yeah basically Acid Storm is a Brazilian thrash metal band who released its first EP in 1989.
Their first full length (and last one to date) is ''Biotronic Genesis'' which is a very decent Thrash release was released in 1991. Anyways I think they should be added to MS.
