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.
23.03.2016 - SYCON
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!

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.

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.

It's a power metal band with what I thought to be a strong debut album (self-titled). Joining Bassist Johan Tranborg are three members of Reinxeed, but taking on different roles than they do with Reinxeed.
Calle Sundberg sticks with Rhythm guitar, but doubles his responsibility with lead vocals
Mattias Johansson takes up the Lead guitar
Tommy "Reinxeed" Johansson drops back on Drums and fills in with backing vocals
Tommy took on the duty of producer of the album, and fans of his other work should appreciate what this band offers.

well, like the group called Dunedain that I suggested and accepted it, ete group has almost the same story as Dunedain, but in Spain, Zenobia is best known, and as I mentioned on another occasion, these Zenobia collaborated with the Dunedain famous tour "Unidos por el Metal" and therefore I recommend it to listen to this excellent group of metal with good potential, and waiting for your answer

Before creating Demon Hunter, Ryan and Don Clark started this beast of a band. TFU were only around from 1996-2000, and had two full length albums that includes their impressive debut, Plastic Soul Impalement. I'm surprised it's not in the database.

The band was pretty famous in Europe and their "Fragments" and "Eidolon" are really good albums. Especially the last one (just listen for example to "Dreamcycle"). Critical reception was also very good. Unfortunately due to labels fails (first Candlelight Records and then small Hammer Muz) they ceased from the scene very soon.

This band dosn't really bring any new material to the world of death metal. But these guys know how to play and very well I might add. They released and EP called The Great Rift back in '05 and just this year they had released a new album called Decrepit Rituals.

Malevolence are a well-known, classic portuguese band, born in 1994. Their two first albums are Melodic Death with Doom and Gothic elements, being the second one, Martyrialized, a masterpiece. They're now coming with a new album in 2012, with a Progressive Death Metal sound. Definitely a talented band worth being on MS.

Since 2008, Immortal Guardian has stuck to what they know best - face melting, mind-blowing, symphonic melodic shred. Known for their extreme live performances and synchronized light show, the band has left countless fans in awe with their astounding musicianship and technicality. The band has received praise from guitar nerds around world due to guitarist/keyboardist Gabriel Guardian's insane ability to shred on both instruments simultaneously. This talent, which has yet to be seen in any mainstream media, has gained him and the band notoriety throughout the metal community and really put Immortal Guardian in a league of their own.
With their first official EP set for release on March 24, 2012, Immortal Guardian is preparing for the future and getting their music out to the global metal community. Building industry credit through acknowledgement from prog-metal luminaries such as Jeff Lumis, formally of Nevermore, and Michael Romeo of Symphony X, the band has continued to grow musically and impress new fans.
They have shared the stage with Symphony X (Nuclear Blast), Nevermore (Century Media), Scale the Summit (Prosthetic), Animals as Leaders (Prosthetic), The Human Abstract (E1), Warbringer (Century Media), Blackguard (Victory), Powerglove (E1), HateSphere (Napalm), letlive (Epitaph), Silent Civilian (Mediaskare), and Mureau (Mediaskare). Immortal Guardian has completed in state touring (Spring 2010), as well as two national tours (Winter 2010, Summer 2011). Gabriel Guardian will also be joining Canadian metal band Blackguard (Victory) for his second time filling in on guitar during an extensive two-month 35-date international tour as support for Kittie (E1).

Tommy Bolin was an American-born guitarist who played with Zephyr (from 1969 to 1971), The James Gang (from 1973 through 1974), and Deep Purple (from 1975 to 1976). He was one of the best guitar players of the 70's and an inspiration for several guitar players of the 80's and 90's. He was a musical genius who was able to mix several styles from hard rock, blues-rock, psychedelic rock or jazz fusion in one album. Died at age 25 in 1976, one year after releasing his only album with Deep Purple and his first solo album entitled Teaser, which is an amazing debut album. Teaser is cherished by fans for the broad range of styles in Bolin's playing. The material spans hard rock, jazz, reggae and Latin music, often blending these styles together within a single song. It is also considered by many to be some of Bolin's greatest recordings in his short career.
