15:12 - Apothecary There are a good number of albums in there from the 2000s decade, so just wait, there could end up being some from the 2010s as well
15:11 - Apothecary Most likely that second one, although this decade isn't over yet though, so patience.... that could change
15:04 - The RedOctober Yes. I read a book by Dan Ariely which had a sort of explanation for this sort of behaviour apart from the good old. When we have a first experience of a particular event or thing we take it as an anchor and judge others wrt to it
15:00 - MHOE Definitely the latter. The 'good old' syndrome at its best.
14:58 - PocketMetal A huge part of my favorite records are from this decade, so...
14:47 - The RedOctober was going through the metalstorm 200. There is no album in the list from this decade. Is quality decreasing or are we judging too harshly?
12:47 - Bad English and we turned clck one h forvard so one h was stollen, less sleep I will compasate it whit 5h at day ... I am outcast rules and obligations dont exist for me in after work and free time
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!".

They play Melodic Death Metal/Metalcore and with their debut EP "The Dawn", it seems like they have a fucking potential to break into the mainstream scene of Melodic Death Metal/Metalcore acts. They are really good.

Hailing from Berlin, Germany, "Declamatory" have been a Melodic Thrash Metal band since their inception in 2000, when Toni Watzinger (guitar) joined forces with vocalist Robert Scholich, bass player Marcus Kuscherka and drummer Fabian Weber. In spite of their lack of formal preparation with their respective instruments, the band members set out to find a very special chemistry, fuelled by the will to create some genuine kick-ass metal!

Ossonor est un groupe grenoblois qui s'est formé courant Aout 2013 à l'initiative de Francesca GALLO la chanteuse et Mikael RATEL, le guitariste. Rapidement, le reste des membres intégrèrent la formation. L'idée était d'abord de faire du métal symphonique à l'appui de la chanteuse dont la voix est lyrique. Mais avec les influences diverses des membres qui le composent, Ossonor s'est vu opter pour des styles très différents dans ses compostions comme la musique de films ou le death métal tout en restant dans un univers sombre et orchestré.
Ossonor is a symphonic metal band from Grenoble, formed in August 2013 by the singer, Francesca GALLO and the guitarist, Mikael RATEL who was quickly followed by the other members of the formation.

AUTOMATON is THE steampunk power metal troupe. They've played national conventions and acts with their steampunk-themed costumes, goofy stage antics and glory-seeking lyrics. Imagine a powerful, melodic metal sound mixed with folk metal spirit and a retro-futuristic aesthetic. Expect a high-energy performance. Bring your tankards, top hats and Maverick guns to sing along and head bang.
