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!".

The Canadian rock band was popular in the late 1970s through the 1980s. Triumph began building their reputation across North America as a live band, peaking in the early 1980s as an import before interest gradually declined. Today, the power trio continue to receive radio airplay on Classic Rock stations and are perhaps best remembered for their positive message songs and their vibrant energetic concerts, complete with extravagant pyrotechnical light shows. Their popularity was extremely strong in Texas, where they first received strong radio attention; but, they were stellar standouts at California's US Festival, and garnered a considerable fan base and radio attention by regularly touring the world, especially throughout North America and Europe. Like their fellow Canadians Rush and Saga.

If Journey and Rush are on this site, so should Triumph. Rik Emmett is a guitar god!
22.01.2012 - malymich
this band definitely deserves place on this site!
15.09.2014 - Kitharistas87
I agree that this band deserves place on this site. It's one of the finest hard rock/progressive rock bands of Canada.
08.09.2015 - Guib
Totally agree Triumph's got to be added.

Okay, they're not metal; but they surely were/are a huge influence for some industrial/post-metal bands like Godflesh or Neurosis.
I've seen a lot of (great) bands here that have nothing to do with metal at all (Current 93 for example), so... I thought that the almighty Swans could have a chance to be featured on MS. :)
19.06.2014 - Syk
C93 were reviewed by a staffer a long, long time ago. I'm quite confident they'd never be seen here but for that fact. Don't get swanhopes up ;)
22.06.2014 - Ilham
They really have nothing to do here despite being a great band that still produces great records.
19.02.2015 - Hank80AF
They have a very unique style in his music, very personal and quite complex.
17.06.2015 - Bardusk
Swans is a must here. And yes, they are more metal than most of metal bands.
12.08.2015 - AlbusNox
They are not metal at all!!! Are u serious people?! Let's bring The Beatles on MS... Because they were a huge influence for some heavy metal bands... C'mon it's METAL STORM not MUSIC STORM!!!!

Royal Corvus band was formed in September 2005 and the first band name was Corvus. The name was borrowed from Latin, it translates - the Raven. It is a symbol of the wisdom in most ancient religions of the world. Raven is a carrier of souls across the River of Eternity and a binding link between the fragile edge of the World of Shadows and the World of the Living. Initially, the Corvus band was created as a melodic symphonic gothic metal project, but in the process of development and quality growth joins itself the best of the different trends and styles of rock. Now Royal Corvus band has created more than thirty Russian and English-language songs. Song's sound is very different: from romantic ballads to hard and progressive rock. And nobody of the listeners will not remain indifferent, because everyone will find something in this music for themselves. All this different musical styles are merged in one unique style - Corvus style. Besides his own works band plays covers of classic rock and pop songs. During its long history Royal Corvus band many times was engaged in various kinds of rock and bike festivals in Kharkov, and outside it. The Royal Corvus band received invitations and performed in support to rock stars as: Master, Sergey Mavrin, Epidemia, Catharsis, and vocalist of the legendary bands Rainbow and Deep Purple - Joe Lynn Turner. April 28, 2012 the Corvus band has presented their debut album - Raven Rising. October 24, 2012 Royal Corvus was official support group of SCORPIONS in Kharkov as part of the farewell tour "FINAL STING TOUR" .

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.

"Sår" (Sar) is a solo project in Depressive Suicidal Black Metal (DSBM) genre which started in 2008 by its only member "Don Andolini" in the north of Iran. The word "Sår" has been taken from one of the Sortsind's song titles with the same name, and it means "Wounds" in English.

AraPacis (Ara-Patches) is a female fronted metal band hailing from Montreal, Canada. Formed in 2003 by guitarist Jerry Fielden, their main goal was to re-create some of the orignal aspects of 1970's Hard Rock and Progressive Rock and fuse it together with early 21st Century Progressive, Doom & Gothic Metal to make an interesting metal hybrid. Their debut album ''So Many Leapers'' was released in April of 2006. and their second album ''Consequences Of Dreams'' was released on October 5, 2009. The band is now working on their 3rd album.
22.04.2011 - Jerryfie
AraPacis is more Classic/Prog Metal than Metalcore, AraPacis has shared the stage with The Agonist, Raven and Anvil, amongst other bands.

Not metalcore... somethin' else. Appeared with the closing track on this femme-metal (voices) compilation http://www.metalstorm.net/bands/album.php?album_id=32808 Third album 'Netherworld' released end of 2011 on Ravenheart Music, and 'Déjà-Vu' EP self-released at end of March, this year (now available for free DL from the band's site, along with about six other older songs) (it appears DV EP is 4 re-recordings of older songs - so you can hear So Many Leapers' title-track twice, and find the advances they've made over 7 years)

One of the most promising bands in the early 90's, unfortunately later they changed drasticaly their style. they deserve to be in MS, because their first two studio albums "Sweet X-Rated Nothings" and "Twinaleblood" are real masterpieces in doom death gothic metal.
06.02.2014 - Baribal
"Ignis Creatio" and "Waves Of Erotasia" were so good EPs, the debut album "Sweet X-Rated Nothings" was good too. "Twinaleblood" was okay, everything after was crap (Alternative Rock).
14.06.2015 - lond
This band should most definitely be featured on MS at least by reason of the first two LPs they released.
29.07.2010 - Evil-Watcher
New Band of Dungeon Guitarist Stu Marshall. Guest Singers Zak Stevens from Circle II Circle ,Sean Peck from Cage, Mike Vescara from Obsession and Loudness, Carlos Zema from Outworld and others. Great first Album

22.04.2012 - Possessed┼Goat
One of the most extreme metal bands to spring out of the regions of Santa Cruz/Watsonville California, Fiends at Feast blend the brutality of death metal and the Satanic anti-religious blasphemy of black metal into a sonic onslaught that will leave you begging for more...
22.04.2012 - Oliver Phoenix
We have so many gothic and electro Bands so we should have this band too! Agonoize one of the greatest Bands from Germany with this Styl, they are wery popular and many people how like Metal, like Agonoize too!
22.04.2012 - Misfit74
One of the excellent up and coming bands in the Slam Death Metal genre. Their latest full length album 'The Precious Ideal' is great and one of the best slam death metal album I've found yet. They also have an EP entitled 'Icepick Facefuck'.

This is probably the biggest Metal Band in Indonesia; They are Death Metal/ Grindcore. They were featured in 2009's documentary "Global Metal" by Sam Dunn; they were featured in the part about Indonesia.
22.11.2013 - Bugster Crow
Ya... Steadydrummer619 is right.... \m/
18.07.2014 - Grind Magi
Death metal/grindcore from Jakarta. One of the more known metal band since they have been active since 1993. Four full-length releases with the last one at 2007. Gotten international recognition for being featured at 2009's documentary Global Metal.
USA / Instrumental doom/stoner rock/metal / 2 comments
19.04.2012 - Grimskallen
Because its kick ass solid doom/stoner... Someone check this shit out, it's amazing.
They are doing oldschool right, fans of Black Sabbath and Sleep rejoice, the riff is back!
20.11.2013 - TungstenPhilly
This band should most definitely be added. They are sufficiently note-worthy to have their own wikipedia page. They sound like Black Sabbath with all of the lyrics replaced with Iron Maiden's guitar harmonies.

"Modern metal" or "Hard rock" or whatever...Sicmonic or (sic)monic...even their name isn't that simple :)
you got to listen to at least two of their songs to be able to judge the range of styles involved here...a truly nice blend...imho...
19.04.2012 - VickyDenaxa
These guys are no ordinary death metal band - their interests in violence, brutality, gore movies (and life with its insane twists) gives them the perfect inspiration for their sick riffs and awesome vocals.
17.09.2015 - Reaper_Redeamer
Well the sadistic preference doesn't make em special, it is a common thing in the grind scene, but they are producing quality music. A shame that we are not including this solid band, considering that death/grind has not the plethora of bands like that.

An unusual combination of Dream Theater-esque progressive metal with 80's metal, mainstream rock, classical and grunge, Souljourners has quickly gained public attention in their Temecula, CA area for their prodigious talent and accessibility, despite their young ages. Spearheaded by singer and guitar hero Michael Couts, Souljourners possess worlds of talent on display and still untapped, and deserve attention from fans of various genres and from Metal Storm.
