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.

It is a symbol of the wisdom in most ancient religions of the world.

Amazing avantgarde band i've discovered recently, mixing jazz, slow & fast tempos with a thrashy druming and almost no vocals besides occasional screams, these guys will for sure deliver for avangarde metal fans!

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.

Give it a listen. These guys are pretty damn good and the music should speak for itself. I will say give atleast a listen to a couple of songs.
It's brilliant stuff that comes out of the states, and being from the states we need more articulate new bands/music. This is a good show of that.

Again, interesting name and cover art. Looks like the bassist is in Hidden with Necrophagia's Killjoy. Yes please

Hello Dear Friends,
My opinion is that this band should be added in Metal Storm Family, because of the good music quality of the albums, that they have recorded.
Thank you for your time.

The band split up just prior to the release of their excellent debut album, "A Gaze Blank and Pitiless as The Sun", an album that more people should listen to. I can think of no better audience than Metalstorm.

The band formed in the summer of 2011 in Alcorcón (Madrid). Originally it consisted of Andrew (vocals), Alberto (drums) and Victor (guitar) who, at the end of that year, Paul joined as bassist, leading to the first formation of DIELEVEN. In this period they were devoted to giving occasional concert with friends bands. In mid-2012, the group decided to redirect their interests and look to the future, and contact Guille, with a view to the composition of his first subjects and search a style, giving the formation of a fifth member, a solo guitarist. In summer 2013, the band enters the studio to record their first EP -'Reaching the Impossible'- composed the songs "Bow Down", "Preservation "and" Joy in Ekron "; which it was produced by Arise Records at the hands of Victor Saiz. In late 2013 decided to give a facelift to their style of music, looking for other sounds and other influences and begin writing songs for a future EP / inspired album bands like Mastodon, Red Fang, Baroness, Down and even the legendary Black Sabbath. In the summer of 2014 the group's departure of bassist Paul occurs and is replaced by the current component of the group, Carlos. During the first half of 2015, the band recorded their first album in CALIFORNIA STUDIOS. In the summer of 2015, the band members decided to change its name to Stomatopoda. Currently, Stomatopoda consists of Andrew (vocals), Guille (guitar), Victor (guitar), Carlos (bass) and Alberto (drums).

Noldor is a band with many influences but you clearly can see an effort of doing something relatively new. It's a one man band and he is very talented. I truly think more people should give a chance to his music.

I found this band a few months ago and I think they are superb. Their style is in the vein of Draconian, Saturnus, Tiamat, and My Dying Bride. I personally love doom metal. They released a full length cd in 2015 and have a few other releases before that. The quality is professional. Give them a shot, you can hear their full album on their website.

These are a bunch of young guys, 18 to 22 years old and they're playing this absolutely crazy music. They're in the writing process for a full length that I believe people will love. Check out their EP, "The Cosmic Throne". The production could be better but the musicianship is there. And it gets better from start to finish!

Originally influenced by Dream Theater, IQ and Saga, NERONIA has developed their unique style. Strong and memorable hook lines are carefully embedded into colourful and complex arrangements. Every song delivers a charismatic atmosphere to the listener combined with an intense narrative element.
Rising from the ashes of the German neoprogs Ulysses, the initial line-up of the band was formed in 2002. In 2004, "Nerotica" was released. This album is a beautiful summary of their early musical style combing their original musical roots with new charismatic vocals. The album release was followed by a series of very successful club gigs and enthusiastic reviews.

Because they have released 2 amazing atmospheric metal albums and an EP. their 2014 album Alpha was one of the top 10 best albums I heard that year. There's no reason for them not to be on this site at all

The Utopia is a quintet of Roma to their first job . The rilsultato fusion of various genres and musical influences , from metal to progressive , to the fusion, is the debut Ice and knives .
Prerogative of the band is to highlight the melodic aspect of each of the tracks on the disc , always seeking the most complete musicality in both instrumental parts in those sung , not afraid to experiment with new sounds and styles .

Born in the first days of 2011, The Forgotten prisoners are an Italian band located in Rome. Since its first lineup, the project target has always been to create a prog-like original sound by mixing the various musical influences of the band members. Via a wise mash-up of the best contributions of each of the musicians, the TFP sound was created shortly after the band creation. This type of sound managed to survive the various line-ups that played in the project - the result is something that must be heard to be judged fully.
At the same time of the technical and musical building, there also was the lyrics, theme and mood construction. This was absolutely a priority for the project, 'cause it was tightly embedded within the very name of the band. The Forgotten Prisoners are all who are left alone, solitary and unhelped, due to their political or religious beliefs, often apart from the common creed of their society. Every one can be a prisoner of someone or something, and each and every one can be forgotten by somebody, or being assumed as dead and simply disappear, for the personal purposes of a few individuals who can control power and people for their own objectives. This type of imprisonment can, though, also be self-inflicted as a punishment or revenge towards the society or the loved ones: and who is being forgotten by himself is not able to see past his jail - to break free and think without hindrance with his own ideas, one has to walk, unassisted, past his very prison walls.
'Cause in the end, everyone of us fights alone.

VIVID REMORSE don't exist anymore, the band split in 2014, but they were considered, after Angelus apatrida, Crisix and Aggression, the most important thrash metal band in Spain, and the most original for sure. They don't have webpage or bandcamp anymore (both pages were deleted by one of his memebers) but you can listen to the two albums they released on Spotify: The seed of malaise (2010) and Down to the wire (2012), this one released by Art gate records label.
The made around 100 gigs in Spain and also a 8-date tour in Mexico in February 2014 (the last gig of the tour suporting Havok in Mexico DF). After one EP and two LP's the band split, but the are still considered the most original thrash band in Spain and one of the most importants.
Thank you very much.
