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!".

Great band, but they were really more of a hard rock band. They were incredibly influential to punk, but not really that much where metal is concerned. I wouldn't put them on here.

Living Monstrosity has existed since 2010 as a one man project, operating from a home studio in Stoke-on-Trent, UK. During this time, multi-instrumentalist Thomas Hubball developed a distinctive style of melodic, catchy and emotionally charged extreme metal.
In 2016, after two full length albums and several EPs, the project recruited additional members, and finally began playing live shows. The band has evolved into a fully functioning four piece, with a passion for playing live, and a shared ambition to grow and perform to their highest potential.

A rather interesting and relatively new band combining all kind of different metal styles into one, still not sounding overdone but powerful. Lyrical themes are oriented on the video games series Elder Scrolls. Might be interesting for all computer games enthusiasts.

Raw and angry finnish grindcore with some death metal/crust punk/powerviolence influence. Good band if you like old school grindcore, definitely suitable for metal storm. Released two cassettes and two 7'' ep, now making an lp.

These guys provide you with high quality suffering, some extra depression and crushing grief. That's what God Eat God is about. Definitely to be added here, people must hear it!

This band brings a very interesting kind of post-metal, very intense and yet atmospheric with some black metal and post-hardcore influences. They have release their first LP in 2015 (The Bleakness) and are already working on their second one scheduled for next year. They tour quite a lot in Germany and I'm confident they will grow quickly.
I think of them as a band quite close to Thränenkind, which are on the metal-storm database already.

Very promising band from the label Finisterian Dead End Records.
This band already released a demo/ep named "Heights'Shivers" (2010) and is now ready to release their first album "Une Ombre Régit Les Ombres" (2016).

Formed in Fall of 2009 in Tucson AZ, Shattered Systems is a band that intends to make a permanent imprint of their sound in the Progressive Metal genre with incredible skills and musicality. Starting off covering 80's Metal and Progressive Metal songs, Founding members Avelino Ramirez (Keyboards) and Nathaniel Dominguez (Guitars) were in need of some serious musicians capable of performing the demanding technical and co-writting skills they needed.
If you are fans of bands such as or similar to Dream Theater, Dio, Animals As Leaders, Dream Evil, Helloween, Kamelot, Metallica, Queensryche, Pagans Mind, Pink Floyd, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Rush, and Symphony X we know you will be a fan of Shattered Systems!

Great band but only has two albums: '' Return to Port Royal '' and '' No Sign of Glory '. It is a band heavily influenced by Running Wild (which are one of my favorite bands).
10.11.2016 - Megalodonn
After Running Wild give up making good records this band came to save the day and give us albums that are so powerfull and inspired from their metal gods (Running Wild) but with a very respectfull and quality way!!! New album coming soon...!!!

Michał Łapaj, keyboardist of Polish Progressive Rock/Metal trio, Riverside, has recently announced that he will be starting his own solo project in 2016, with more information to be given on his newly created facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/michallapajofficial . Just like Mariusz Duda's invisible MS profile Lunatic Soul, I reckon Michał Łapaj deserves his own band profile.

"Drowning Horse sounded the way a band called Drowning Horse ought to sound. They were a hellish black stallion with a belly full of lead, sinking into a vat of thick, molten, death… and they were very fucking loud. Bowel-splitting doom drones shook the young earth's crust, Thor-like drumming set avalanches tumbling and aggrieved vocal growls seemed to summon storm clouds overhead; needless to say, Drowning Horse aren't for the faint of heart, but they should make any aficionado of heaviness giddy with glee. Drowning Horse will bruise you all over. And you will enjoy it." - Lyndon Blue, Cool Perth Nights

They make a gothic metal different.
The inspiration of Dark Letter is a music that oscillates around the broadly defined gothic. Sometimes rock/metal intersperse with sounds of horror music. Lyrics tell about violence, fear, despair and craving. Erich Fromm said that evil is not only human, but it is also tragic. These words could describe the conception of Dark Letter's world.

A Long Island prog metal band that's been around since 2007. They released a well received EP Revitalized back in 2009 which garnered the band quite a bit of buzz in the prog scene. They are finally coming out with their debut album 'The Ordeal' this year on October 28. Their style of prog metal is very much in the vein of Between the Buried and Me.
