This'll sound weird, but try anything Rush did after about 1995 (Test for Echo, Vapor Trails, Snakes and Arrows) -- it's not metal so much as prog, but the sound is pretty solid.

I used to listen to a lot of metal... almost exclusively belonged to the genre for awhile. :P Not so much anymore, but Strapping Young Lad are one of the few metal bands I can still listen to and really get into. Their album "City" is unparalleled, there is literally nothing else like it. There's so much going on that linking to a youtube audio vid isn't really the best idea for a good impression of how incredible the mix is, but I'm gonna do it anyway:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pFB40IA5ws&feature=related

The band's often called death metal but they really aren't... there are elements here and there like the opening blastbeat in that song, but sit through that and there is a ton of beautiful (vocal) melody raging alongside the craziness. Quite hard to classify that band while they were around... :)

Anyway, I'm not really all that in touch with the metal happenings of the world anymore, but I figured I'd drop that name in case they're your thing (they blew my face off when I first heard them but you may not be into it).

The best spambots make good threads that don't get locked.

My favorite metal band would be Dream Theater. They are the most creative band I know of (both instrumentally and lyrically), and their former drummer who just recently left (after 25 years) worked and played drums with Avenge Sevenfold (which you mentioned) in their latest album.

I also love Theocracy. They sound like possible 80s metal, but they were founded this century.
