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 band was founded in New York by Carlo and Anthony Fragnito. Very short after this they found MaryAnn Scandiffio to join them as a singer. Debut album "Unlaced" was a fact and BLACKLACE did a tour as support to PLASMATICS, MANOWAR, ZEBRA, TALAS and TWISTED SISTER. "Unlaced" was quite a success. Co-produced by Ross the Boss (former guitarist of MANOWAR). They sounded a bit like THE RODS, but now fronted by the raunchy vocals of MaryAnn of course. In 1985, one year after their debut, they released "Get It While It's Hot" and hot, they were! This album rocks your socks off.

Arguable is the key word - their early albums had the occasional heavy number but are mostly synth-laden rock a la Heart. They've definitely gone straight-up for hard rock in recent releases, but I'm not sure they've ever played "metal" per se.
I would say add them for the same reason we have Aerosmith and that featured.

I do not consider them glam and in the early days they weren't much of a visual K band either. Their early sound was more rooted in classical rock. Outerlimits though has a metallic sound. Except for the album recorded with Steffanie, since Outerlimits they played a more metallic sound, even though there were some pop metal material in those too. Outerlimits incorporates many things from Mark II Deep Purple (especially in regards to keyboard usage) and early 80s Judas Priest (especially in regard to riffage). While it does have some more mellow, balladlike songs, it does not make it less metal. Hard Way is even heavier and Genuine Diamond more or less continues in this direction.

Enceladus, a dual harmony guitar assault, profound bass, and energized drums; all synergistically combined with passionately sung, cosmically inspired lyrical elements to create an exhilarating and refreshing form of metal.

Our work is a world of contrast combinations. Here you will find anxious presentiment and cheerfulness, joyful lyricism and attacking aggression, hard drum rhythms and tender melodies, airy keyboard roulades and heavy guitar sound. There is the sound of the wind and the quiet of the forest which got mixed in the music.

We are a young and enthusiastic metal band from Turkey. Where metal is not really finding itself a place in. So we are an unsigned band, doing self releases. We have our debut album released last Friday, and our first Video clip last Monday. We would be glad if you can have a listen! Thank you very much in advance.

In March 2011 the band also named Jugger Note, began to form under the influence of Classic Rock, already own songs. Phase that did not quite last long when the band took aim at a way more Heavy Metal, which led them to find new influences, igniting his passion for Progressive Metal.
extinguished the Jugger Note, Jugger and adopted only as a name, the band began his c aminho as a Progressive band with influences like Dream Theater, Queen, Opeth, Symphony X, and a more brazuca footprint, reaching the creek. In 2013, with the support of experienced and new ideas in my head musicians, the band released their first EP:. "Born From the Ashes" Now in 2014, the band following the release of their EP and prepares new lyric videos and video clips, as well as shows in clubs in São Paulo.
