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!".

"With a new lineup compared to when we recorded the demos and in order to avoid misunderstandings on the name, we thought it made more sense to call us ONE DESIRE," says drummer and founding member Ossi Sivula. ""The band has changed massively musically and member wise and our name is now ONE DESIRE" says singer André Linman. "We are finally ready to unleash the music. We're coming - get ready!"
ONE DESIRE have recently delivered their debut album to the label. Songs have already turned heads in the industry with insiders making comments like: "This band really is excellent, kind of reminds me of hearing H.E.A.T for the first time. Same kind of magic." or "These songs I listened to are really strong. "Strong contender for album of the year." and with Serafino Perugino - Frontiers's very own President - saying: "In the last 20 years it is rare that I have felt so excited about a new band!"
ONE DESIRE is:
- Jimmy Westerlund (producer of Negative, Sturm Und Drang, Joel Madden of Good Charlotte, Pitbull etc.) - guitars
- André Linman (ex Sturm Und Drang) - lead vocals
- Ossi Sivula - drums
- Jonas Kuhlberg (Paul Di´Anno, Cain´s Offering, MyGrain) - bass

In 2016, renowned Dutch vocalist Anneke van Giersbergen decided for the sake of clarity to narrow her musical focus, choosing to go in a folk acoustic direction as a solo artist and in a heavy progressive metal direction as a band vocalist. The name VUUR - translated from Dutch as "fire", which can also be interpreted to mean "passion" or "drive" - was chosen as a moniker to represent Anneke's metal side. Members
Anneke van Giersbergen (ex-The Gathering) - lead vocals
Ed Warby (Hail of Bullets, Ayreon, ex-Gorefest) - drums
Jord Otto - guitars (My Propane, ex-ReVamp)
Ferry Duijsens - guitars
Johan van Stratum (ex-Stream of Passion) - bass
Marcela Bovio (ex-Stream of Passion) - vocals

This band (which define itself as an Arpitanian black metal band) produces an atmospheric music which reminds me of Woods of Desolation and many other great bands I've had the chance to discover thanks to MS.

IRFAN's kaleidoscopic sound reveals an original electro-acoustic world fusion influenced by the sacred and folk music traditions of the Balkans, Anatolia, Persia, the Middle East, North Africa and India, as well as by the musical and spiritual heritage of Byzantium, Medieval Europe and the Ancient Mediterranean.The band's name is borrowed from the Sufi's terminology and means "gnosis", "secret knowledge" or "revelation". Their music is an invitation to a mystical trip in and beyond time,a message poetically revealed in the language of the heart that each one of us should experience.

This is a very interesting Band that has a rising popularity (more than 40k fans on Facebook). Their first full album, Dissentient, is very good and I think that many people who love bands like Thy Art is Murder, Dispised Icon, Carnifex, etc. would be excited to discover it!

In 2008, a new phase, Mr. Ego released the single Messengers Rage to serve as a prelude to his most daring, until then, Mythology, album totally grounded in the mythology of ancient Greece.
