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 highly successful video game composer Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy series) created this one after his previous band (Black Mages) disbanded. Features predominantly covers of his previous efforts in a wide array of styles, the most evident being progressive, symphonic rock and heavy metal. One of the prog archives' residents characterized them as "Prog and there's a scrap of metal on it".

their first EP is pretty good, and be in metal storm helps people to know more.

Metal Storm needs Dreadnought because of their unique musical fusion and instrumentation. They are a metal band in which one genre cannot describe. They incorporate elements of black metal, progressive rock, post rock/metal, folk, sludge, and jazz. The four members play guitar, flute, bass, mandolin, drums, saxophone, keyboard, and vocals (both clean and harsh). Visit http://dreadnoughtdenver.bandcamp.com/album/lifewoven to listen to their newly released full length.

This band is so absolutely sick you would be insane to not feature them. some of the coolest stuff i've heard out of the metal genre in years... they have a drummer that plays saxophone while he's drumming for crying out loud. also they just released their new album for free... go get it.

I just checked this out. It's pretty cool-- I hope they get featured on the site at some point, but I don't think they will be able to get on here any time soon, unfortunately.
22.05.2013 - basskhan
Don't fear, Divergenceless! There's always hope for good music.
23.05.2013 - NickRyerson
this band is amazing. their CD is way rad, but you really need to see them live to get the full deal. unbelievable

The new band of Dan Donegan & Mike Wengren (both members of Disturbed). Other members include Dan Chandler, Jeremy Jayson & Sean Corcoran. Their first single "First of the Last" can be found over here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLBtLGZ2waU&sns=em

" The new style of music has a lot of breakdowns and tempo changes, which confines a very personal feeling to the songs, building up the energy that comes out of this style of song-writing and playing.The band members come from various musical backgrounds and have been around for a while, enough to know that music is the only driving energy and that success is only the palm of your hand, when you're holding a guitar, drum sticks or a microphone , on a stage, in front of people that enjoy your music. Further on, we take the responsibility to develop our sound and get the music across to the interested audience, wherever it may roam"
This is how romanian's underground scene looks like. Breathelast are one of the most important bands in the country and they should be presented to everybody on this site.

They kick ass. :) Their recently released 2013 album "When Mutilation Becomes Homicidal" is produced well, has a great sound, and is chocked full of slamming riffs.
They are signed to Rising Nemesis Records: [url]http://www.risingnemesisrecords.de/[/url]

Because this band deserves to be recognized . It been slowly gaining attention from the metal listeners of Brazil. They launched recently their second EP, for now the site have only the clip of the main song, but soon will have more information about the band. I think metalstorm is a good way to show then to people of different locations and have their work released. Sorry for bad english.
grateful, Michel Macena.
07.05.2013 - DutchThrasher
This is an upcoming Death/Thrash metal band from The Hague in the Netherlands. They just released their first full length album. Their style is quite varied (not just death/brutal death, but they venture into thrash and other styles as well) and they use influences from gaming culture.
07.05.2013 - AtrumHiberna
One of the oldest Thrash/Death metal bands from Greece. They were formed in 1986 but they released their debut album in 1997 after they released a couple of demos. They released another 3 full lengths in 2001, 2007 and 2011.

The band put out a few records including a demo, a lost tape, and EP, and one LP entitled Cursed, Scarred and Forever Possessed from 2000 to 2009. On the night of April 30th 2009, vocalist Steingrim 'Mehimoloth' Torson was shot and murdered, which the band to split. There were releases from 2011-2012 that featured material recorded before his death. Earlier in 2013, a new LP called 'Ω' (Omega) with Mehimoloth posthumously on vocals as S.T., was released.

Asteroid's music (Stoner/Doom-Metal) of is a really good blend of bluesy 70's retro rock and catchy stoner metal that make for an easily accessible stoner metal experience that never gets tiring or old. Check it out for yourself.
05.05.2013 - RottingDeathHead
Just heard of this band today on Dying Fetus's FB page. These guys have been around since 2008 & have released a couple demos and one full length. They have one other full length album coming out this year! They have a Benighted/Death sound to them. I figure any metalhead who enjoys the brutal side of metal will no undoubtedly enjoy this band!
05.05.2013 - RottingDeathHead
Discovered this band on Facebook, and thought they deserved a space on the metalstorm website. These guys have been around since 2008 and they play Old School Death metal.
05.05.2013 - maleficusangelus
The band has released it's debut album Fall of Man recently in April 2013. The music is good, with above-average production for an unsigned band and it has released its album entirely for free. Music & info: http://www.maleficusangelus.com
05.05.2013 - PhantomLord21
Already released three studio albums (self-titled debut in 1990, Hear! in 1992 and New Audio Machine in 2012) and one covers album (Undercovers in 1994).
Great band who I think would be worth a listen to any serious glam fans.
05.05.2013 - Divergenceless
The band has released three albums, including their fairly substantial newest album Desagravio. They are signed to TotalRust Music, an independent label, and have been gaining followers in the underground. The band deserves the opportunity to be featured on Metal Storm, and with this support, they could reach the heights of contemporaries like Process of Guilt.
