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!".

Divine Weep has been formed in 1995 as a black metal band, gaining recognition both in the country and outside of it. During the years of inactivity the band's style evolved into classic heavy metal in the vein of giants such as Iron Maiden and Helloween. The band came back to life in 2010 with a bundle of new songs and recruited new members, getting a new chance to shine among Poland's metal scene, which resulted in a lot of gigs including those supporting bands such as Hunter, Turbo and Blaze Bayley (ex-Iron Maiden). Divine Weep released two demos and one full lenght album "Age of the Immortal" (2013) and now is preparing to record the new album "Tears of the Ages". The session is planned for March 2015 in the well-known Hertz Studio (Vader, Behemoth, Decapitated).

Obzerv is a metal band from Rethymno (Crete), formed in late 2011. Musical influences? A little bit of HxC, Thrash, a couple of blast-beats here & there, occasionally "scream-my-lungs-out" vocals, all played with a progressive perspective! They have released a self-financed 3-song promo (Promo 2012), and in the summer of 2014 their selftitled album came via Trailblazer Records. So far they have shared the stage with bands such as SepticFlesh, Rotting Christ and Grave Digger among others..

I want Winter's Wake to be on metal storm because they personally asked me to do a review about their EP "Yellow Moon". I was able to write an awesome review and no other website has them.

a very unique band with odd song structures and techniques, utilizing a wide range of vocal styles and lyrical topics. despite numerous line up changes in the 4 year existence of the band, they have stayed together and stayed strong in a difficult region for underground, original music.

This band was a key element in Australia back in the 90's who toured and supported big bands such as Slayer and Machine Head. At their peak in relation to the metal scene at that time Allegiance had an original sound of incredible energy distinctive from other big bands. Allegiance was a HUGE staple in the Australian metal scene, I myself and the majority of Australian metal-heads would clearly acknowledge and honour such a great leader who represented the Australian metal scene to the world of metal! Thanks for reading.
Two studio albums: D.E.S.T.I.T.U.T.I.O.N (1994) - Skinman (1996)

Engage should be on Metal Storm because Engage was a great Power Metal band and people need to know about them. Engage tunes are lyrically creative, melodic, dynamic, fast, complex and interesting. It's good stuff!
