Abstract: A new sample of possibly massive early-type emission-line stars (METELS) based on the previous lists of peculiar Be stars is presented. It consists of 36 objects divided amongst supergiants, possible binaries, and candidates to the list. The central stars are probably more massive than ~10M. Two new relations allowing identification of possible binaries among the objects are proposed.
