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!".

They were doing great cover hits in 86'. Then released an original album, then disappeared for awhile. They came out with some new material recently for an EP called "America Idle" and it was great! I was able to see them open for Helloween in Toronto and they had a great response from the crowd and I certainly enjoyed it. I find the Title track "America Idle) particularly catchy.

Dean was born in Bronx, New York and raised in a small suburban town right outside of Worcester, MA. He began playing guitar at the age of 10 and built his first electric guitar when he was 15.

Dean is a pupil of the legendary Shred Lord Joe Stump, 6th top Shredder in the world - Voted by: Guitar One Magazine. Joe Stump is a true mentor. He's an amazing player, and my best friend. His inspiration has been key in helping me find my own unique sound and identity. It is Joe who unleashed my creativity and assisted me in expanding my guitar vocabulary. During the days when Shred was dying and Grunge was the rave, it was my Mentor Joe Stump who carried the Neoclassical torch high and proud - His strength and passion inspired me to continue writing, playing and recording the music I love." Dean is known for composing songs that combine killer fret board assault with memorable melodic melodies.

Sexta Casa starts its history in 2006, but it will take some time to establish itself as formal band. The first years served to develop some of their own compositions. Just in 2008 it reached a stable line up, which managed to play live shows throughout the rest of the year. Unfortunately 2009 sees it suffering casualties in some positions and just in 2010 it could do concerts again. The latter was reaffirmed in 2011 with intense activity and it seemed that 2012 would be the same, but the line up troubled the normal course of events again. 2013 was the year of the definitive takeoff, and the one to stabilize and begin to outline the recording of their songs. It was more a period of activity "alive" than "in studios". This happened the following year when the recording of "Hijo Del Tiempo" began. In late 2014 this LP would be ready, so it was released in 2015 with the collaboration of Pulmonar Recordables. Currently, plus a new lineup change, the band is dedicating all its time and efforts to the live presentation of their debut album.

FS PROJEKT is a joint effort by the mastermind of the whole endeavour, i.e. Efes (music, arrangements, lyrics, guitars, bass) and his brothers-in-arms - the outstanding Russian musician and producer Oleg Mishin (vocals, flute, production) and one of the best drummers ever to rock the Russian metal scene Andrei Itschenko. It was in December 2011 when these brave adventurers set out on an ultimate quest in search for new worlds hidden behind the veil of reality to find and bring forth the greatest treasure that seemed to have been lost for many centuries - the dignity of human spirit in all its grace, splendour and glory!

These guys came from a small city Bjelovar, Croatia where music like this isn't respected as it should be. They have unique sound and unique style. Even though they play instrumental they are very aggressive on stage and have a lot of charisma. I whish them to promote more and play more so everyone can see their energy and hear their story.

Bringing St. Paul the finest in regressive metal since 2010. Released second album on the 4th of September 2015
Chaos Frame will never: feature lengthy wank solos, rhyme 'fire' with 'desire,' BREAK IT DOWN BRO, give you up, let you down, run around and hurt you
Chaos Frame WILL: bring the riffs, change keys a lot, change time signatures a lot, add blastbeats to things, have epic parts, experiment a bit, release material when it's good and ready

The band combines cyber/futuristic themes, with technical/melodic death metal, electronic sounds and harsh female-fronted vocals. They have released 2 albums 'Solarstorm' in 2015 and an all Russian album 'Разрушая преграды' in 2012. Highly recommended for fans of Scar Symmetry and Sybreed.

Eleven Strings is a Progressive Metal band from San Paulo, Brazil. Formed in 2012.
The band's name refers to a theory of quantum physics about the various dimensions of the universe, as if they were all strings, each one vibrating at a different tone, composing a symphony of chaos and creation.
