Quite hard to choose top 5 metal bands for me... but here I go:
1) Dream Theatre
5) Judas Priest
But then, Avantasia and Ayreon are I guess should be considered as project bands?
-Bring me the horizon (if that counts :S)
Cant remember what I put as my original post in here, but it was a while ago, and my music taste has changed a fair amount since.
Current favourites are;
- Children Of Bodom
- Arch Enemy
- In Flames
there are a LOT more, but they are my favourites
-Metallica(shame on everyone who didnt put them on the list)
here goes nothing-
2.as i lay dying
3. bring me the horizion
1. Black Sabbath
4. Lamb of God
5. Amon Amarth
- Led Zepplin
In no particular order..
1. Dream Theater
2. In Flames (Especially their Whoracle album)
3. Iron Maiden
1. Iced Earth
2. Black Sabbath
It's good to see so many people here enjoy Dream Theater.
I don't tend to listen to a lot of metal.. but I do enjoy some bands.
Type o Negative
Helloween (classic is the best)
Primus (funk metal?)
Oh, and to those of you who've said it... H.I.M is not a metal band.
Fixed my post. D666's last three albums are better than Samael's by a long shot.

Ok in no particular order.
This was a hard list to make, I'm still not sure about it. If it was top 5 metal bands in a particular genre it would be easier.
In no particular order:
2. Amon Amarth
It's impossible for me to pick my favorites, because it changes almost every day.
