23:37 - Troy Killjoy Granted, I don't consume much liquid so I know my bathroom habits are irregular/below average. But still. You shouldn't have to go every couple hours unless you're consuming a ton of liquid.
23:36 - Zaphod Red, yup. The city's name would translate to Saint Nicholas.
23:36 - Troy Killjoy I did the same run through the extended LOTR movies and only got up once to use the bathroom.
23:35 - Redn1ght Zaph, is 'Sint' same word as 'Saint' in English?
23:35 - Zaphod I did take a break in between every LotR movie when we watched all three in one day (extended editions). Erik, do you have to use the bathroom that much? Serious question, since I rarely ever need to pee during movies.
23:34 - Erik M. Weird, cinemas having breaks seems like it's a Dutch-only thing then? Troy, yes I "need" several listens to fully grasp an album, like many people do. I indeed always combine it with something else, like I'm doing now as well.
23:33 - Troy Killjoy You can't refrain from drinking or using the bathroom for a few hours at most?
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.

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'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 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!

"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.

It's a band from Cyprus, a country that doesn't have such a big metal scene and the black metal scene is almost nothing. This makes the band's work more original and that they really care about metal and release material that express what they are and what they feel.

Their facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Zorakarer?fref=ts - They recently released a full-length called "Carion Call Of Destiny", and they're extremely good imo. Just found out about them.

Brazilian thrash metal shredding since 1981.
The early '80s marked the worldwide metal scene for the emergence of bands like Slayer, Metallica, Venom, Exodus, Anthrax and others, which created a huge fan base where your songs accordingly serve to influence other bands that might arise. In Brazil, one of these bands was the aggressor, had its embryonic phase formed in the year 1982 in the city of Macae in the state of Rio de Janeiro, when a group of friends met in order to learn to play and start a band.

A young Pakistani band that brings a fun mix of grindcore, hardcore punk and death metal. The production on their latest ep Jamat-al-Maut might be a bit lacking but the enthusiasm speaks volumes.

This is the first band of Stefan Schmidt and Bastian Emig (now best known for being part of Van Canto). While I personally am not a huge fan of Jester's Funeral's material, I feel that people who like Van Canto's music might find the band worth a look into.
The band were active from 1996 to 2006 and released 4 studio albums (all of which can now be downloaded on a pay what you want basis from the band's bandcamp profile): 1999's Labyrinth, 2000's QuickSilverLight, 2003's Shifting:Skywards and 2006's Fragments of an Exploding Heart.

Band formed in 1989, Santiago, Chile after 2 demos and 1 EP splits in 1999. In 2011 moves to New York, NY and is currently recording new material with 2 original members.

BECAUSE this guy has 125 full-length albums and the one insane person who decides to add em all will get a bunch of community points.

Probably most productive musician on the planet. And i really like his music. I've checked out maybe only 1/10 of his music, but there are really some great stuff. You can find really a lot of genres in his discography, doom, prog, folk, electro, djent, ambient....
16.06.2014 - INÆRIS
Inaeris should be on Metal Storm because they have a very original sound, which is a delicate balance of metal and mellow beautiful music. Their debut album has just been released within the last week, and it has been receiving some outstanding feedback. I can confidently say that there are a lot of people in the MetalStorm community who would find the music of Inaeris very enjoyable.
