Well, my favorites are Nightwish, Tarot, Lordi, Stratovarius and Apocalyptica from the Finnish ones, and Within Temptation, Blind Guardian, Symphony X, Metallica and Rob Zombie from the foreign ones.

^____^ As for you who have never heard of the bands, here are their official sites:

Nightwish
Tarot (there are two vocalists, of which one is the bassist of Nightwish, Marco Hietala! ^____^ I really like what he sounds and looks like! Plus he seems to have a nice personality!)
Lordi (Warning, not for the fainthearted. They perform in monster suits that look authentic and really creepy.)
Apocalyptica
Stratovarius
Within Temptation
Blind Guardian
Symphony X
Metallica (...On the other hand, if you don't know this band, you're not a real metal fan. ........<-- There's something really wrong with that statement. xD)
Rob Zombie

Hums. . . .

The ones I like most:
Nightwish
Within Temptation
Atreyu
Avenged Sevenfold
Thrice
Linkin Park
HIM
DragonForce


So, why do you guys like who you like?  Personally, I like Nightwish and Within Temptation because of the addition of the orchestra and choir. I absolutely love the basson, flute, and oboe trio in "Ghost Love Score".  HIM I like mostly because I think Ville Valo's voice is sexy. I also love Brandon Saller's and Alex Vatarkas' (I hope I spelled their last names right) voices from Atreyu and I really love some of their lyrics.  Avenged Sevenfold and DragonForce I enjoy because of their guitars. 
DF does some of the craziest stuff I've ever heard on guitar.  :minos-guitar:
Thrice is another one I like because of their lyrics, Linkin Park too.

@Sharkticon:  Well, not all metal is thrash and screaming.  A friend of mine that is really into guitar told me that metal is technically anything with 'hard' guitar riffs and a heavy sound.  Its not all like some of Slipknot where all you hear is noise, at least to me.  Some metal can be very melodic.

For example, if you check out Nightwish and Within Temptation, they're both metal bands, but they're symphonic so they don't scream and you can actually hear the different instruments and not a cacophony of nearly meaningless noise. 

Hee.  My friend also told me about Nintendo Metal, so named because the music sounds like it came from an old video game.  XD
