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!".

Eleven Strings is a Progressive Metal band from San Paulo, Brazil. Formed in 2012.
The band's name refers to a theory of quantum physics about the various dimensions of the universe, as if they were all strings, each one vibrating at a different tone, composing a symphony of chaos and creation.

I have read all review of their album and have a great rating. This is the best Traditional Heavy Metal band I've ever heard after Judas Priest, and Iron Maiden.
They didn't follow any trend shit. Pure fuckin' Heavy Metal. Metal Storm please add this band.

The band itself say they play crossover, because their approach to styles is quite undefined, but I would put it under progressive metal. Their approach to the music is one of the reasons I like them a think they should be here. Also I would say, if progressive metal scene in Czech Republic was somewhat bigger, they would be probably more known than they are now.

The Longing is an LA-based group whose upcoming album, "Bleed" transcends over-simplistic genre categorization. Founding member and singer, Laura Bradley, harnesses the power of her trademark angelic sound and unleashes her voice with the spectral force of an emotional whiplash as this powerful 13 track rock album spins out into groove-heavy pockets of distortion, atonal dissonance, high-octane hooks and the haunting piano melodies that are the signature of Bradley's compositional style.
In addition to Laura, The Longing consists of guitarists Yuri Anisonyan and James Kloeppel, bassist Michael Wallace and drummer, Tom Plumb - all formally trained, seasoned session and touring musicians with numerous high-profile production and engineering credits. When asked about the title track, "Bleed" James replied, "I love the harmony, it's really catchy and it's got this weird overshadowing overtones/undertones - it is so NOT standard pop!" While the album is emotionally revealing, cohesion is heard in every note. "I think we've worked our way towards creating a dynamic that is perfect," adds Yuri. "This band has a sound, and everyone just gets better. We've really started to trust each other."
The stunning video for the single, "Bleed" was directed by Carmella Cardina, supervising producer of "The Green Room with Paul Provenza" on Showtime along with Bradley's sister, Flint. Set in a neglected yet beautiful mansion, it traces the story of a woman lost in the history of the old house and its secrets. The imagery of the past and present collide within the memories of romance, intrigue and blood. Tom adds, "It was a great experience. The location was incredible, the whole process was really fun, creatively, and working it out together was amazing."
The soul wrenching "Cool Dark Slip" opens with Bradley's haunting solo piano before exploding into an urgency of hard-driven guitars. "All the songs are personal. It's the only way I know how to write, but this is one the most achingly intimate songs on the album," Bradley says. "This song simply penned itself. I had recently lost someone I loved to suicide and I was drowning in loss and anger. In order to find forgiveness, I took on the persona, the story of why, and faced the pain, her pain and what it was like to take her own life."
The melodic and atmospheric, "This Flame" exposes Bradley's experience with the Angeles National Forest Station fire that burned Bassist/Producer Michael Wallace's Stonyville Cabin & Studios to the ground in 2010. "The fire took on a feminine identity and I hated her with all my heart. I speak directly to her in the song, telling her how she took from me a sense of safety and security. I had no power against her, and the change she was forcing upon me with her raging inferno. People like to think that the songs are always autobiographical when actually they are not. " In the end, they are all very personal and meaningful to me, but I'm stepping into a persona as I am affected by a story, a confession, an event or the imagery of a situation.
Rounding out the release is the dramatic and expressive, "Sword & Stone". "I loved writing Sword & Stone - it was originally commissioned by director Carmella Cardina for her film adaptation of Shakespeare's play, The Tempest, and it became so much more than a movie theme for me. While I was writing about the dramatic journey of Prospero, the main character, and his transformation from rage and conviction into forgiveness, it broke open a place in me that had no concept of how to truly forgive and what forgiveness ultimately means. I don't want to forgive you, is our nature. Do it anyway, is our higher calling. "
Bradley has toured nationally as a solo artist in support of her first two album projects, Rain and Storm (distributed by eOne), and became the opening act for both Colin Hay and Dionne Warwick & Friends at Miami's Bank United Center. With the formation of The Longing, the group has performed at numerous rock venues with a unified vision and sound that electrifies an audience. Impressed by her playful theatrics and easy rapport with an enthusiastic crowd at The Viper Room, Music Connection Magazine reviewer, Lisa Elaine Scott writes, "Laura is an accomplished composer and a sophisticated performer. Her risk-taking lyrical story lines, combined with stellar musicianship and a spellbinding stage presence, make for an outstanding live show. Unafraid to stray from the familiar formula, Laura Bradley and The Longing are creating aural art at its best."
With "Bleed" about to be released, The Longing's thoughts have focused to returning to the road. Laura reveals, "I never meant for this to be a project four years in the making, but you have to be able to step away and give something space to grow. The end result is exactly what I've always wanted: A fourteen song epic release of dramatic and difficult subjects, propelled by the rich and heavyweight sound of The Longing. I think we were all focused on playing this music live the entire time we were recording. It's really a concept CD meant to be played live." Tom says, "Playing live is my favorite part of the whole band! Making the record is fantastic, but playing live is what I enjoy most about music. The fact that the band is so good and so together, to get the right pieces in terms of members and really working hard at arranging the songs "for" the band and all of those things make it such an awesome experience to play live."

I think Wrath Sins it's a new force of the portuguese underground movement, recently being added to the roster of RAISING LEGENDS RECORDS, with their debut album "Contempt Over The Stormfall" being something that will mark their scene.

When Downtempo-Hardcore and Doomcore meet. There's talk about the Black Tongue and their down tuned guitars, bloodcurdling vocals and breakdowns that would break every single bone in a mosh pit.

Imaginary Tribe was founded in February 2014 by Steve Resler and Mark Spitz. Originally conceived as a cover/original band Steve and Mark soon realized the power and emotion of their own music should be the focus. Imaginary Tribe's sound is a mixture of heavy riffs, powerful beats, multiple musical styles with a heavy backdrop, and catchy lyrics.

With energetic shows, clearly reflecting the exact emotion being dealt with in the track, CROSSING EDGE is shredding their way from the first minute until the very last breath of the album's twelve songs. Unique melodic vocals dueling with severe shouts, massive guitar riffs turning up like endless walls corresponding well with magnificently well elaborated lead guitars are accompanied by tight bass-lines and aggressive drums stirring every headbanger's blood.

Incordia is a 2012 founded, uprising Melodic Death Metal Band from Germany (Darmstadt) with female fronted growl vocals. They are an awesome viking band with a very impressing live-show und a good first studio-album in early 2015. In my opinion they deserve some more people supporting them.
