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!".

Founded in 2008 and heavily influenced by Iron Maiden, these guys produce an old school heavy metal sound that is powerful and energetic. They have an EP released in 2011 and their debut album 'The Killing Floor' was released in 2013, both of which are amazing. They are a great live band too

I am writing you asking that you add The Eulogy to your site and consider reviewing the self-titled EP by the band "The Eulogy" released by Flatspot Records. We think that your website is an important one for the metal and hardcore scene and our release is worthy of review. Our band is made up of veterans of the hardcore scene with members that played in Madball, Agnostic Front, Mouthpiece, Straight Faced, Eye for and Eye, 454 Big Block and Collision. The band consists of Matt Henderson and Pete Reilly on guitar, Sergio Chavez on vocals, Kevin Norton on bass and Derek Muraski on drums.
The music was engineered and produced by Nick Jett who may be more familiar behind the drum throne of LA hardcore legends Terror. Our music has been streaming at Noisey and Bandcamp it can be accessed here http://flatspotrecords.bandcamp.com/album/fsr13-s-t-ep I have also included a link to a review of the EP from the Legends Arising website http://legendsarising.com/2015/02/04/review-the-eulogy-st/ .
The music is labeled as hardcore but is as influenced by and sounds more like Obituary, Entombed and Black Sabbath than traditional hardcore like Minor Threat and Black Flag.

Female Fronted Symphonic Power Metal band.
The band was formed at June 17st, 2004 under the name "Vipera" by Adir Colonna And Shiri Burah.
It was a summer night when they started to talk about their wills of a serious musical career.
Adir that came from a background of a death melody band named Kna'an, and Shiri that came from a background of choirs.
They set next to the peer and talked about how they grow farther from music and how they miss that and they want to start something new.
Shiri suggest to form a band inspired by Sonata Arctica and Adir, who wasn't and expert about the genre, decided that it will be a good challenge.

Firstly, the band is an original band from the United States and is a female fronted band. They are from NYC and have been an official band since 2009. They've performed as direct support for such acts as Doro and Amaranth and have opened for Sebastian Bach, Stryper and Rhapsody of Fire, to name a few. Their debut self-titled EP (released in 2013) has been steadily picking up momentum within the US and abroad and they are currently working on releasing their first full length album. Finally, I think they would be a good fit for those that regularly check out this site and are hungry for new music!

Old school inspired Death Metal but with a strong concept and long songs. Kind of unique but still fits the style.
2 full albums releases so far, including one in September 2014 which got quite a great feedback from reviewers so far.
Latest album was recorded, mixed and mastered in Poland by the live sound Engineer of Behemoth who also worked with Decapitated, Hate,...
Full album is available in streaming here : http://atroxentis.zimbalam.com

Their sound is interesting, well balanced between heavy, upfront parts and mellow interludes; folk and medieval influences mix together with orchestral elements, making all sound pretty epic.

They are an extremely dedicated young metal band from a small town that has no metal scene and they deserve the promotion metalstorm can give them. They have already released material with gained critical acclaim.

It's a high quality band with it's first album and EP already released. Frequently cited by the Croatian metal webzine reporters Metaljacket as the best Croatian metal band. In the last two years, the band has become hugely popular and gained a great number of fans from the world.
Actually they are closest to Melodic Djent.

It is at this time that also decides that Alberto was the lead singer , while guitarist.

A fine band. But in no way are they metal.

Ten years of prog, five LPs, one of which, The Color Spectrum, is a two and a half hour collection of nine EPs based around the nine main colours of the visible wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation. If that doesn't pique your interest, consider The Dear Hunter's ambitious and ongoing undertaking of a six-album project, detailing the life and opinions of a boy known as "the dear hunter".
It wouldn't be the first prog rock band to deserve its spot on the 'invisible bands' list.
