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!".

Not quite a metal band, but seeing that other hard rock or glam bands are featured, I do not see why these guys shouldn't be here. Great White is one of the better bands from that thoroughly commercial movement of the 80s.

We got a full length cd as required. It'd be a great honour to be featured on this site. Here you can find some info:
Sycon bears just one thing in mind with their music - Total Havoc!
Brutal guitar riffs, versatile vocals, stomping beats and atmospheric synths defines the music, all while retaining their melodic metal roots.
Groove Factor Guaranteed!

Amazing musician producing music of the future. An artist and composer with such skills should definitely be on metalstorm, as people deserve to know about him and he deserves to be known to the people.

Innate Concept's musical identity is rooted in the Progressive Metal genre - and the word "progression" is to be taken literally. Innate Concept strives to incorporate elements, instruments and ideas normally not found in classic Progressive Metal. The newest album "Sunset In Our Eyes" combines elements from electronica and classical elements into a whole new and unique sound. A multitude of synthesizers create the atmosphere, color and texture, the mighty Taiko drum ensemble delivers power, groove and impact, while the Armenian Duduk conjures up ethereal melodies, adding yet another layer to the rich-bodied symphonic orchestra. A piano and various acoustic guitars are another integral part of melodic storytelling and quite frequently intertwine with other instruments. All of this takes place planted firmly on the foundation of thundering drums, shredding guitars and a nasty, angry bass. Innate Concept's music is challenging, demanding, cunning, powerful, intense, yet so delicate and fragile. Be prepared, for it will demand your full attention - and it will surprise you if you dare a listen. Debut album can be purchased at http://www.innateconcept.com/shop/

Progressive Metal band in the vein of The Human Abstract's Digital Veil album without the harsh vocals. Their debut album Reticence: The Musical has already been released. Definitely worth a listen.

Band 23 is a new name in Croatian scene. Band has recorded their debut MCD and self released it in 66 limited copies. I've watched their short trailer and it sounds very interesting. It is definitely something new...

Green Death got a big boost when Megadeth bassist Dave Ellefson signed them to a record deal on his label. The band has become well-known in the Midwest and play several shows around central Iowa every month. They've even had Dave Ellefson guest perfom at their live shows which also includes Des Moines' biggest music festival 80/35. They play straight forward thrash with a fresh style that is not too grating, but advanced enough for there to be something new for everyone. Green Death take not-ultra-serious metal to a new level, and they deserve more recognition for their efforts.

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.

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.
10.10.2016 - picturingthepast
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!

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.
