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!".

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.

Echoes of the Moon is a one-man black metal band from Indiana. The music consists of psychedelic music, post-rock, sludge metal and black metal. The latest release "Entropy" utilizes all of these styles throughout its 72 minutes of songs that play seamlessly together. The album is available for free download via bandcamp and can be streamed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8e83ckO5LgY

Created with the purpose to do a cannabic and satanic noise with a lot of humour, MUFA is on the road since 2008. Some changes of members along the time, the band still on the same formation since 2011 and finally 2015 releasing their debut album "Brutality Show", recorded and mixed in Magma Studio, São Paulo. Released fully of independent form. To legalize the blasphemy in original compositions, MUFA is inspired by human filth which is seen in all society, that gives form to the violent and brutal sound of the band.
The main influences to MUFA are bands like Cannibal Corpse, Slayer, Hatebreed, Black Sabbath, Sepultura and even yet the brazilian soul master Tim Maia, making the sound of the band totally out of a single genre.

Winter Calling is an American hard rock/metal band formed in Florida in 2013. The band consists of Chris Hodges (vocals), Ian Medhurst (guitar), Tim Gilbreath (bass), and Wayne Hoefle (drums, piano, keys).
Winter Calling began as a side project for Wayne, who was composing film music at the time, and Ian, who was touring with the John Wesley Band. Upon finding a bit of magic with their early song-writing efforts, the two recruited Texas-bred, guitarist-turned-bassist Tim Gilbreath. The three continued composing their unique blend of rock and began an extensive search for a vocalist to complete the group. Their search led them to the "land of dreams" and LA based performing artist, Chris Hodges. Chris proved to be everything they were looking for in a vocalist and more!
Together the four honed their dynamic sound, best described as a synergistic blend of progressive rock, old-school metal, and film music, and embarked on recording Winter Calling's debut album "As Darkness Falls".

The Portuguese grinders are blessed with a great sound and the humour is speaking for itself.
Hilarious intro's and some pretty awesome grind sound. The different vocals are topping it off. Growls, screams and pigsqueals are passing the revue. They like the breaks to get samples in and it makes it sound cool.

Agent Fresco shows the softer side of Djent, with their second full-legth, Destrier, they show the highest level of quality not only on the music, but also on video and concept. They can combine sound from beautiful piano landscapes to heavy hitting Djent bass-lines. Plus, they are from Iceland.
Check Destrier: https://play.spotify.com/album/0fa2SQpyZ9t77hJmZZXDSj

The Bay Street Bastards are an up and coming Heavy Metal / Celtic Punk band true to their Canadian roots. It's a beer drinking foot stomping good time. Basically a bunch of metal heads trying to do the Dropkick Murphys, but with guitar solos and Iron Maiden covers.
