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!".

Their sound has an identity of their own. This does not sound like the average re-hashed death metal, they try new things. Last week they released their second full length- Dødsverk.

They are about to release their second studio album, and have streamed two songs from it already on youtube, which both of them have a very interesting blend between black metal and hardcore. Their first release has a more chaotic and math influence in it. Would be really cool for them to get some recognition because i believe they can become big!

A great and heavy band that already has released an ep(both digitally and physically) at bandcamp: http://xenobiotic.bandcamp.com/album/wraith
And they are also going to release "Ares" both in limited edition vinyl and cd very soon.
A very great but overlooked band which I can recommend to those who enjoy deathcore. If a band had to have a full-length to be added here, then it might take some time before this band could be added.
Nevertheless, I serve you underground deathcore.

So this is basically a one man death metal band with some other guy who only writes lyrics. So this guy has been around since 2010, but have only managed to release one EP so far, but it is one damn solid EP. Below is a link to a youtube video that shows one of my personal favorites "Skin Suit".

First of all, it's a unique project that is written, composed and led by a chick :) haha!
Debut album is produced by Erez Yohanan from well praised Amaseffer
Will be mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen
And features the amazing Henning Basse (Metalium, Epysode, Mayan) as a lead singer!
Interesting enough? :)

A fan we met for the first time at our show last night recommended we add our band, Giant of the Mountain, to your awesome website. He said metalstorm.net is where he discovers almost all of the new music he listens to. We would love to be considered for your website. We have lots of free downloads on our bandcamp page and just released a new album yesterday, February 25th.

Lorenguard's music refuses to kneel to the boundaries set by predetermined musical genres, and instead offers the listener a sonic experience that is guided by an epic saga set in a fantastic world of conflict. Blending elements of Metal and Rock with Classical and Film Score, Lorenguard's sound is emotional, powerful, and above all, pure of heart. Seamlessly moving from chaotic and aggressive to beautiful and reflective, Lorenguard offers an unparalleled musical adventure for your heart and mind.

local band from my youth in south fl. personally, i like a more brutal vocalist but these guys should be listed on the site since they fucking rock anyway.

Talented lot of guys from Trondheim, Norway. Released their debut full length "War", last year on Apocalyptic Empire Records. They play fierce, raw, aggressive black thrash that kicks you in the face. For fans of Deathhammer, Aura Noir, Nekromantheon, Condor.

A Black Metal band from my home country of Pakistan. It would be the first band from Pakistan to be added to MS and I find that would be very appropriate being one of the best the country's humble metal scene has to offer and a great addition to MS's archives. Necktarium's sound is extremely atmospheric and they incorporate some post-rock elements which gives their music an out of the world, eerie feel. Listen to
