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!".

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.

My band was already in the Metal Storm database under the name Eyeless, but we changed name to Progenies! Is it possible to create a new page of whatever? He also have a new album that just got out, for now we are independent but looking for a label/distributor.
Have a listen : https://fr-fr.facebook.com/pages/Progenies/452143194873352 (a quick review would be cool too!). Enjoy!

Is it... a new band, or just changed name? We can have the Eyeless profile updated, if appropriate / if need be (actually, you could search and click to edit it yourself, and mention / copypaste this at the bottom)

Wayfarer is a metal band from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado who bring a unique atmospheric metal sound with touches of post metal, black metal, folk, and progressive tendencies, creating driven landscapes that are vast but ultimately human.
They are on the verge of releasing their full length debut "Children Of The Iron Age" on July 9, 2014, which was produced by Dave Otero (Cattle Decapiatation, Cobalt, Nightbringer) and are about to embark on a US tour with Dreadnought, who were reviewed very favorably on this site last year.

Brazilian thrash metal shredding since 1981.
The early '80s marked the worldwide metal scene for the emergence of bands like Slayer, Metallica, Venom, Exodus, Anthrax and others, which created a huge fan base where your songs accordingly serve to influence other bands that might arise. In Brazil, one of these bands was the aggressor, had its embryonic phase formed in the year 1982 in the city of Macae in the state of Rio de Janeiro, when a group of friends met in order to learn to play and start a band.

So this band was only around for six years before they finally split up, but in that time they had released one really solid death metal album entitled Empyreal Regimes. Their name comes from the xemorph aliens in the Alien film series.

A young Pakistani band that brings a fun mix of grindcore, hardcore punk and death metal. The production on their latest ep Jamat-al-Maut might be a bit lacking but the enthusiasm speaks volumes.

This is the first band of Stefan Schmidt and Bastian Emig (now best known for being part of Van Canto). While I personally am not a huge fan of Jester's Funeral's material, I feel that people who like Van Canto's music might find the band worth a look into.
The band were active from 1996 to 2006 and released 4 studio albums (all of which can now be downloaded on a pay what you want basis from the band's bandcamp profile): 1999's Labyrinth, 2000's QuickSilverLight, 2003's Shifting:Skywards and 2006's Fragments of an Exploding Heart.
