21:46 - Erik M. ...so that at least all references are in the same FILE, but not on the same sheet. Changing all that is way too time-consuming, so I just accept it's not possible. Or at least, I don't think it's possible.
21:40 - Erik M. To answer your questions, I tried to change the cell references. I like all my references in one sheet, and I don't want references in another file. So now I just copy the sheet I want + reference sheet to the file...
21:36 - Erik M. No, I have lots of different files with mass balances of different process configurations. Sometimes I need to combine sheets from different files, which at first I had problems with, but now not so much anymore.
21:27 - Erik M. Well, I work with Excel a lot as well for my job, so I've already learned a lot. But seeing as I'm a process engineer, I'm not sure whether you could help me. I mainly set up mass balances in Excel and do lots of calculations.
21:25 - Jaeryd17 What kind of formula changes are you trying to make? Changing the reference to a different file name, or just changing cell references?
21:13 - Zaphod Jooe, [link] You'll probably like this.
21:04 - Erik M. Well, those #DIV/0 can be undone though, but once a cell has #REF! in it, you're screwed unless you didn't save the file, because a simple Crtl + Z doesn't undo it, hahaha. And don't get me started on those circular references...
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!".

In the Autumn of 2008, CHAOS IN PARADISE started taking their first steps in a small garage in Oporto suburbs, where Alex and Quik began to outline the identity of the band.
After a few days, they started searching for other musicians to complete CHAOS IN PARADISE and after a while they found Pedro for guitar, 19 for bass and Sara for the vocal parts.
With the band as a whole, the quintet began writing their first Demo which came out in February 2010, including the songs "Dawn", "Heading North", "The Meaning of Being Imposed" and "Antagonized".
The band recorded the Demo at their own studio and released and distributed the four songs online for free!
After, CHAOS IN PARADISE began their live shows through Portugal, to promote their work and also to obtain experience as a band.
In the beginning of 2011, the band returned to the rehearsal room to start writing their following work, trying a new aproach to improve their sound, bringing their own identity to it and making it more coherent.
With the pre-production on the bagage, the recording sessions of the EP started in March 2011 at Soundvision Studios in Vila do Conde with Paulo Lopes in the co-production.
From the EP entitled "Let the Bliss Remain" the band released their first single "Awareness" to the fans and press, aquiring unanimous opinions expressing that their evolution and sound quality had a huge improvement.
With the "Let the Bliss Remain" presentation and release in June 2011, CHAOS IN PARADISE came back to the road to promote their EP in Portugal, having already some International shows in mind.
At the moment, they're planning to edit their first album in 2012.

Needs at least one full length.

Ugh those weak screams...a better vocalist would be a huge improvement.

Side project of AAL frontman Tosin Abasi and members of The Mars Volta and Suicidal Tendencies. Not the most metal sound in the world, but there are clear metal undertones. Interesting art!
08.03.2012 - R'Vannith
Wouldn't call them djent but yeah interesting stuff.
31.03.2012 - João Pirucas
This is much more Jazz Fusion than Djent but it's awesome nonetheless. That connotation is there just because Tosin and Javier are part of the band, in my opinion. Good addition to the site anyways. +1
27.03.2014 - Mehdi Taba
Great band with a great album (Lingua Franca), Terrazas, Reyes, Abasi & Moore, fresh sound, awesome performance and production with awesome drum works.
22.07.2009 - Wildchild-91
Insense deserves to be on Metal Storm because they are not much known outside of norway. Insense is a fantastic bands and should be heard by so many others than just norwegians that are interested in that kind of music.
The vocalist/guitarist Tommy Hjelm also plays with Benea Reach sometimes

It has been a while since being really blown away from a new discovery.
ProFusion is a bit hard to categorize, combining Progressive Metal riffs, Eclectic stuff a la Beardfish, and catchiness like, well... It just gets stuck in your mind and won't go away.
I've yet to have listened to their first album, but their second one (Rewotower) has really blown me away.
The first song of the album (Ghost House) is available on their Reverbnation page.
25.07.2013 - LeKiwi
I'm just not impressed with bands like this these days...all this type of prog is the same. Sounds like watered down DT...
15.08.2014 - elt
very good...I also listened to a preview of their third album, really nice ...

Ace Of Hearts is a "supergroup" with members of Secret Sphere, Icon & the Black Roses and Odd Dimension, his debut album "Monster" is a MUST for the fans of the genre!

It's kinda rare to see a band with old influences nowadays. And, to be honest, I think that what they say about rock'n'roll is true:
"ROCK'N'ROLL IS NOT ABOUT TECHNIQUES AND 32-NOTES-A-SECOND SOLOS, IT'S ABOUT TOUCHING PEOPLE WITH YOUR MUSIC".

It's kinda rare to see a band with old influences nowadays?

"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.

Think along the lines of Between the Buried and Me, or The Human Abstract. These guys are just about to release their debut full length album, and from what I've heard so far, its pretty good. Very technical and melodic, and certainly very talented young musicians. Songs and video's available on youtube or myspace, check it out!
14.08.2011 - hopelieswithin
Hope lies within is a collaboration of 5 close friends doing what they love most. Each with very similar outlooks, goals, and ideas of what really defines music. They hope to bring joy to the listeners ears by simply making music that wanders from the norm and catches your attention by demonstrating raw emotion and a strong core musicianship all at once. In a nut shell, hope lies within is a melodic rock/ metal band that blends elements of progressive rock and classical voice to keep the sound original but also sound very natural. The number one goal for hope lies within is to do what they love and have fun while doing it.

Deprivation are a driving force in the Australian metal scene. Tour constantly, work hard, have just put out a killer album 'Amalgam', which has received praise and interest worldwide. They are touring the East and West coast of USA mid 2012 as part of a Hard Rock Cafe sponsored chain of festivals.

A french band who performed in a lot of big metal scenes like Wacken Open Air. They have two music video from their debut album, which is called "The burden of will". They've just released a new album named "Spams of Upheaval" and a new video "Inhaled" feat. Jon Howard (Threat Signal)

HEONIA is a Melodic Metal band from the North of France. The band is started in January 2006 by Thomas and Marieke.
They create HEONIA's first two compositions while they actively search for musicians to complete the band. These first pieces define HEONIA's style of music: a powerful Melodic Metal with touches of Prog and Death; female vocals which can be soft or stronger with, in addition, aggressive death metal voices…
Once the line-up is complete, HEONIA presents its music to people at a lot of gigs (opening for Kells (Fr), Misanthrope (Fr) or To-Mera (UK) in particular) in order to refine its music style and have the first impressions of the audience.
In November 2008, HEONIA releases its first EP self-produced in its entirety and named Simulacra. This one receives quite good reviews although a "home-made" production and is well received by the audience when the band presents it.
HEONIA continues logically on its way and records his debut album in 2009. The band wants, by this mean, to make people discover more in depth his musical universe with a professional sound. Winsome Scar is released in September 2010; its sound is rather dark, melodic and progressive.
Since June 2011, Rudy i not anymore Heonia's drummer. We are currently searching for a new drummer.

Definitely one of the most innovative unsigned act in today's scene.
In their debut opus, Sleepless Definitely delivers and successfully
combines the most effective elements that set up a new standard
in atmospheric music.
Merging elements from the "Vintage Days" of the progressive rock
with today's dark Psychedelia, Alternative & Jazz with a Gothic vibe -
creating the soundtrackof the night.
Gathering two highly experienced musicians from the Israeli scene,
producing by themselves their first duet together.
The soft melodic melancholic singing of David Bendayan crossing
with the haunting deep vocals of Maor Appelbaum.
Take a brave step into the world of Sleepless.
It will leave you mesmerized.

Hailing from the darkened streets of New York City comes forth the Gothic entity of the black metal world known as VASARIA, featuring: founder, horror icon vocalist/bassist Baron Misuraca, drummer Marc Del Cielo and guitarist Tommy Conforti.
15.10.2011 - Timmeh
Yeah definitely, this band is capable of some quality Thrash which I can really see a lot of people on Metal Storm enjoying, especially with the high popularity of the revivalist thrash bands here.
05.12.2013 - Moosh777
Hailing from Brisbane, Malakyte having opened for acts such as Alestorm, Anthrax, Muncipal Waste, Warbringer and played Soundwave Festival, they just released their debut album 'Human Resonance'.
10.08.2011 - Ultraussie
Widow the Sea are a great sounding band which have realeased one EP and are currently on tour in Australia, I am going to see them live.
They sound pretty original.
They are quite popular in the underground scene where I live and usually headline shows with other popular local bands.
I think they deserve more exposure and having a profile on Metal Storm would give them exposure as that is how I have found about many of my favourite bands through this site.

Coz' this guy is fucking amazing, He was top the ten finalist for Guitar Player magazine's Guitar Superstar of the Year in 2008 and has worked with musicians like Zakk Wylde and Bumblefoot. His first solo album, Sonic Stomp, was released in 2006 and the follow-up, Sonic Stomp II, was released in 2010. He is currently working with Russell Allen and Mike Portnoy on a project called Adrenaline Mob.

Great upcoming band from Germany. Fans of melodic death and extreme power metal should check them out.
27.05.2014 - b0sse
Yeah, I agee. The really need to be featured here. They recently released their 2nd album back in 2013.
Nice symphonic power/melodeath/extreme power.
Whatever you wanna call it, it's great stuff.
08.08.2011 - neonxaos
Cryal may seem like just another melodeath band from Finland at first listen, but these guys have some truly energetic stuff on offer. The sound is well-rounded, the musicianship is top-notch and the melodies are as catchy as you could hope for. Well worth a listen, and the band certainly deserves some more attention.
They only have a few demo releases out so far, but there is a full-length album on the way soon. People should just be aware of what's already out, because it's killer stuff.

BIOSFEAR is an up and coming band from Madrid (Spain).
Their debut album "Antes de que todo cambie" is released in Spain/Worldwide on 2011 and distributed by the Spanish/English label "The Fish Factory"
For sure they will set people talking, from now on :)
11.08.2011 - Paradox0
Wow. These guys have some execelent fresh energy. Vocals are a little anoying but remind me of old Dream Theater
08.08.2011 - RobertKingsley
None Shall Pass is a (Dutch) band formed in 2010 , a mixture of death metal and hardcore.
But not one of the thousand new "Deathcore" bands.
The reason why it should be on Metal Storm in my opinion is this:
First of all it is good for the band database filterd on The Netherlands.
Since the band is getting populair and almost finished there new EP.
Has gigs in some big places (Locale).
And ofcourse supporting the scene.
More interactivity on the web , and getting metal fans / bands getting to know them and vice versa.
Thank you for your time!
