Thread of Metal
Post recent metal music you've found or old favorites, regardless of the subgenre. I'm sure there's quite a few fans of heavy music on these forums - there usally is in gamer communities.
[LANGUAGE DELETED - Watch yourself, - RPS]
I'll start out with a mix of old & newish stuff:

Yes, a fellow Diamond Head fan :). My favourite song ever is Helpless, such amazing riffs. I also hope your name is in relation to the band Witchfinder General, in which case look out for me, lets trip on LSD

I'm a bit of a lapsed metal fan so most of these aren't exactly new releases.
Got this thread off to a good start with some Opeth, though. Blackwater Park is a stunning album, never get tired of listening to it.

The gamer world doesn't know enough SID Metal.
Enter Machinae Supremacy, whose various albums have been on and off my regular playlist all the time.
Taking advise from one of the top comments from the Jets 'n Guns Soundtrack: Don't listen to this music while playing FPS (or any action games, really), or you WILL be banned for hacking. I've tried it myself with countless Warsow-matches in the office. ;)My games-related Twitter: VexingVision

I'm finding it difficult to decide on whether I should start off with something that's straightforward or weird so I'll do both and put BAN in the middle.

Slight departure from your trad metals, but I like a decent helping of sludge.
The opener to an all-time fave album:
And a dude I know has a pretty radical band, Hail, Architeuthis! (and label, http://aurisapothecary.org/)
Annnnd, while I'm here:

Looking forward to the next Mastodon album. While not my favorite song on their last album, I guess I feel obligated to post this.

I'm not really the biggest metal fan, but I do love Mastodon, Kylesa and Baroness, so top marks to those people who posted that.
However, this band are bloody brilliant, and you are hereby commanded to listen to them.
If you have spotify here's the album Kvelertak – Kvelertak

Ja, så åker vi dit då får vi kiss och lime
En tjurig ladugård i Dyna
Jag älskar blod jag ska badda, då e me kje turkar
Vår fuhrer saltar väg
Ta mina inlägg
Det är en blodväg, ja
Lita inte Ola
Han är kungen av ligg
Han äger med sin dong

Great thread this, picked up a lot of excellent music from this that I wasn't aware of. I liked metal as a teenager, then moved off to indie, punk, hardcore & post-rock for my guitar fix and haven't listened to much metal since. Stumbled on Masotodon's Leviathan a few years ago after reading a rave review, really liked that and been meaning to investigate more of that ilk. A lot of the newer bands here turned out to be available on my emusic.com account so I've blown most of this month's downloads on a metal binge. From good recommendations here I've picked up these this week and really enjoying them:
Kvelertak - Kverertak. If he was still here, John Peel would be playing this and getting them in for a session.
Baroness - Blue Record.
Agalloch - Marrow of the Spirit. This is awesome stuff.
Kylesa - Spiral Shadow
Searching for Ulver tracks I also came across this acoustic compilation Whom the Moon a Nightsong Sings which is rather good. I'm reading Game of Thrones and playing the Witcher at the moment, this album is the perfect soundtrack.

@Donjonson Nice, I'll look that one up.
The Whom The Moon album is in the same vein and worth seeking out, has a rare Ulver track 'Synen' on it.
