I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Dream Theater. They have to be in the top 5 for me. I know a lot of people don't like them for the same reason people didn't like Rush- too much going on in every song. But I like that approach.

Megadeath
Iron Maiden
Dream Theater
Anthrax
Metallica

...in that order.

BlueFnord
Death
Suffocation
Anthrax
DRI
Darkthrone

meep-meep
IRON MAIDEN.

I'm disappointed in everyone here. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED.
