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!".

While the overall genre is melodeath, they have influences from both symphonic and folk metal what gives the band a unique sound. The songs are often faster paced than the average melodeath, the occasional clean vocals and brighter guitars give it a certain note which makes them special (to me at least). They haven't brought an album out yet, but i don't see a problem with that, a few bands have been registered on Metalstorm before releasing an album, for example Darkest Horizon.

Legacy ID stand out in the progressive metal arena and put out some serious riffage and vocals with their own uniqueness in sound.
Each team member comes from different musical backgrounds, thus creating the unique fusion and progressive approach towards musical arrangements and composition. The band dares to step out of the traditional musical criteria, not being bound by a certain genre, now and then surprising even the loyal followers with new and unexpected nuances, twists and turns.

Paramnesia are a French black metal band that formed in 2005 and that, after releasing an EP and a split, have finally released their self-titled debut. The Cascadian sound remains a strong element, but is supported by gloomy arrangements not entirely dissimilar to the material of Lurker Of Chalice or Leviathan.

Fire Garden is one of the most artistic, creative and aspiring bands. A project founded by Zeeshan Baig a.k.a. Zee in 2011 in Chicago. Since then the band has released one EP 'The Prelude' (2012) and a full length studio record 'Sound of Majestic Colors' (2014).
Fire Garden's philosophy is not to classify their music to one particular genre but to explore different styles to find their own sound. The band incorporates classic sounds, odd time signatures, skull crushing riffs, catchy vocal melodies, guitar and keyboard solos into their music without compromising the soul of music.
Breaching all the rules of traditional songwriting Fire Garden is continue to explore its journey into modern progressive music with all the classic sounds of its origins.

Fatal Attraction should be on MetalStorm because they display a wide range of metal talent and passion. They should be on a website that smoothly organizes all of their history.

Led by Danish guitarist and songwriter, Torben Enevoldsen (Section A, Fatal Force), the initial idea for Acacia Avenue came about from Torben writing in a more melodic hard rock nature than his other bands. Quickly the idea emerged to do a whole album in this style, but to spice things up, Torben called in a few good friends to participate as singers and co-writers.
