03:49 - !J.O.O.E.! Overall I enjoyed it, despite glaring and numerous plot holes and being a too long. But I think it could have been better if it didn't want to be too many things and concentrated on just a few. Joon-ho Bong's The Host was a better
03:47 - Darth Satanious ...out of place on purpose. It is like everything, some may find that something works and some may not. Fucking traffic control in the Shoutbox,
03:45 - !J.O.O.E.! True, but Battle Royale felt clearly rooted in satire, so they got away with it.
03:43 - Darth Satanious I think they wanted to put an interesting character with her, and I believe they succeded. Her place in Snow reminds me of that chick in the instructional video of Battle Royale. A weird, kind of eccentric character that feels...
03:42 - !J.O.O.E.! Which is ironic because she was the best part of the film, but the one element which didn't belong.
03:40 - !J.O.O.E.! [SPOILERS] It's like on one hand, you have the serious and tragic tone of the film where babies were eaten etc, then on the other hand you have the caricatured, designed for humour character of Swinton. Not compatible imo.
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.

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.

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.

I'm just not impressed with bands like this these days...all this type of prog is the same. Sounds like watered down DT...

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.

The first LP released from this band is one of the most interesting debut albums i've ever heard, i'ts a mix of metal/prog-rock/doom with something else that makes this band very unique.

Awesome underground melodic death/black metal act from Cleveland, OH since 2009. Released their first album, "Seeking the Frostfire", in 2009, and set to release a follow-up EP, "Siege of Scirehaven", on 11/29/14.

These guys only had two albums and are on extended hiatus. However, the single "Sadist Ways" made the rounds and gave their first album a decent level exposure. This is one of the only bands to come out of the 2000's that still brought that 80's vibe thrash that is pretty much dead, even when it comes to new releases from the bands that created the genre. I am convinced that the only reason these guys did not hit it big is because they were overrun by the slew of metalcore bands that were taking over at the time.

Formerly a regular name on the Austin metal scene the band dissolved in 1998, but founding member and guitarist Chris Litz resurrected the band name in 2014 with a whole new lineup and sound: drummer: J.R. Pena (Infinite Terror, Exidium, Critical Disorder), bassist: Rafa Mejia (Catarsis Incarne, Grecco) and vocalist Rick Clark (Meyvn, Sacred Realm, Heartless (UK)) expertly craft their own brand of power metal, anchored in Chris's unique guitar attack and driven with solid rhythmic hooks, and soaring vocals.

Frost Commander is a band formed in late 2010 . The first crushing attack , their performance took place at the beginning of 2011roku . The consequence was punching a wedge deep into the consciousness of local music fans under the sign of heavy -power . The biggest success of the campaign rich in numerous performances in various parts of the country was to release EP Fri Magic Dagger . Unfortunately, the relentless fight on the front lines affected the state of personal team. The team is preparing to re- deploy on the battlefield , and the burden of conducting activities will rest on the shoulders of the following composition : Melchior Jasek ( lead guitar) , Adam Polanowski (drums ) , Simon Dżumak ( vocals), Przemek Mirek ( rhythm guitar ) and Tom Marmot ( bass )
