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!".

I believe they're sufficiently metal enough if you consider the fact that most of they're stuff is based off of original heavy metal/hard rock bands like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Deep Purple, etc. It's not as "heavy" or as "metal" as some of the stuff you hear nowadays, but it's still metal/hard rock.
And yes, definitely MASTER EXPLODER.

The Metal is a good enough reason for them to be on here. Let's put them with the group of other parodies like Dethklok, Steel Panther, Spinal Tap, etc.

The second full-length Zord album entitled "Thorns & Wounds" was released on 2nd December, 2013 by Nail Records.
Notes from a review (Heathen Harvest - USA) of the first album (Disasters Grind - 2007): "…This is definitely one of the most talented thrash acts out there still today. It's a shame that countries like Hungary, Lithuania, and Latvia don't get the same attention that some European countries do, as its becoming increasingly aware that the music from those countries is of the best in the entire continent."
Notes from a review (HammerWorld - HUN) of the second album (Thorns & Wounds - 2013): "…The 'Thorns & Wounds' album is a pleasant surprise. It's a very good one in every respect; moreover the album art is also sophisticated and suggestive."
The band is active, tours in Hungary and the neighboring countries, and it's time for the world to pay attention to these guys on an extended level!

Is a quartet playing hard rock music. The band was formed in 2012 and consists of childhood friends from Amager. The KillerHertz released a promo in 2013 but is already writing new material and is very keen on playing as many live gigs as possible.

Woe Unto Me is a new comer in the funeral doom realm and represents the latest offering of Solitude Productions, known for financing and producing many important doom based offerings nowadays. While they do not have much up, the balance perfectly the rawness of the genre with keyboard driven melodies, fact which creates a very bleak atmosphere... trait from which Solitude Productions reaps its fame.

Because it is a branch of the great lyricist Maynard James Keenan and it only makes sense that if TOOL is on the website, his other projects shoulld be too in case fans enjoy TOOL and want to know more about his other projects.

Nine Treasures is a folk metal band from china (Inner Mongolia) and performed 2013 at Wacken.
They sound a bit like good old Korpiklaani with an asian influence.

"Hero's Last Rite is an appropriate name for a band of this stature and musicianship. They have just put out an amazing album that I believe is an Instant Classic in the local Metal canon. But most importantly, these hard working group of guys have just released their magnum opus of heavy metal. The Mirror's Face requires multiple listens and it needs to be heard…LOUD! Highly Recommended." - Tim Rayne CHSR 97.9 FM Station Manager
"It's a no brainer to give this album a perfect score. If I could rate this cd higher I would. If this isn't album of the year I can't wait to hear what is." - Mettalworx.com

Active since 1997, this band has produced two full length albums that despite being ground-breaking, are undeniably promising. "Raw Dark Pure", their 2006 debut album didn't go unnoticed. Their follow-up, "Monument In Black", was brought to life in 2013, with a cleaner production, and catchier riffs.

Obscurus Advocam didn't last long, but gave birth to one of the best Black Metal albums of 2007. Founded by Glorior Belli's Infestvvs, this too-soon-aborted project explored an original direction in Black Metal. Obscurus Advocam has its place beside Glorior Belli on MS, as two different sides of the same coin. Any true Black Metal lover should have the privilege of discovering this band, and it would be great if that could be done through Metal Storm.

Vermilion is an Atmospheric/Experimental Black Metal band from Arad, Romania. They were formed in October 2008 and released their debut album "Ylem" on 22 November 2013. The album showcased the band's songwriting and musical abilities in crafting a black metal album that makes you feel like you're on a journey transcending through worlds, voyaging through storms of souls and falling through frozen hells and it shalt have been a journey like no other and never shall you remain the same.
The production is not the best ever, but it's black metal. It's supposed to sound like it was recorded on a broken webcam. Also, protip: this is not some album that you can listen track-by-track, this whole album is a whole and has to be listened in its wholeness.
