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.

A fan we met for the first time at our show last night recommended we add our band, Giant of the Mountain, to your awesome website. He said metalstorm.net is where he discovers almost all of the new music he listens to. We would love to be considered for your website. We have lots of free downloads on our bandcamp page and just released a new album yesterday, February 25th.

Lorenguard's music refuses to kneel to the boundaries set by predetermined musical genres, and instead offers the listener a sonic experience that is guided by an epic saga set in a fantastic world of conflict. Blending elements of Metal and Rock with Classical and Film Score, Lorenguard's sound is emotional, powerful, and above all, pure of heart. Seamlessly moving from chaotic and aggressive to beautiful and reflective, Lorenguard offers an unparalleled musical adventure for your heart and mind.

A Black Metal band from my home country of Pakistan. It would be the first band from Pakistan to be added to MS and I find that would be very appropriate being one of the best the country's humble metal scene has to offer and a great addition to MS's archives. Necktarium's sound is extremely atmospheric and they incorporate some post-rock elements which gives their music an out of the world, eerie feel. Listen to
