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!

I agree that this band deserves place on this site. It's one of the finest hard rock/progressive rock bands of Canada.

Totally agree Triumph's got to be added.

The band combines Oud influenced oriental style, with many other symphonic elements and lyrics reflecting people's suffering in war zones and in exile. The Band's first album " The ghost of Zanoubia" was released in October 2015, and it brings together elements that are not very often used in Metal

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.

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.

Fairly decent stuff. Their latest album, "Agonist," has garnered a lot of views on Youtube. Vocals are clean and used sparingly, but when they come in it really adds to the bleak, desolate atmosphere their music creates.

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...
