I dunno if they're exactly what you're looking for (and these bands vary in sound fairly dramatically) but for a more 'punk' thing try

The Bronx
Rites of Spring
Titus Andronicus

A lot of this isn't that HEAVY though all of these bands utalise screaming to a certain extent. Refused are by far the heaviest band out of that selection, and well worth checking out (especially for the amazing drumming).
Lets not settle for satisfaction, we are women and men of action.

Them Crooked Vultures

had Kyuss in my album collection for ages and never listened to them so rectified that this week on my way to work
not bad and really have no idea why I have not listened to them before as they are quite relaxing

I love Queens of the Stone age and have for years so in honesty to me TCV sound like b sides to the last two albums

Slayer however I have really enjoyed
the rest I am working through at much slower pace as previously hoped as a return love has been taking my free time
namely Superbike racing

Defeater are brilliant. Good shout.

May I also recommend Protest The Hero and The Dillinger Escape Plan? Top stuff.

took a quick scan and I would add the following:

If you have not yet looked at the transitional/progressive metal I would suggest:

Animals as Leaders (my favorite cause its all instrumental, they also do instructional youtube vids)
Between the buried and me (the genre staple currently)
Tesseract (they're British I believe)

On the more punk/hardcore side of metal if you like killswitch engage you might enjoy August Burns Red as well, you could maybe make a case for Rise Against as well

The first 3/4 Metallica albums are good, after the 4th it all goes a bit pear shaped. Have a go with:
Iron Maiden
Judas Priest
Electric Wizard - really nicely heavy doom metal
Municipal Waste - Crossover thrash so quite punkish, Waste 'em all and Massive Aggressive lean more towards punk than metal I think
Megadeth - I'd say try Rust in Peace/Peace sells... first
Mutant - unsigned but one of the best live acts I've seen
Bloodbath - Not sure if you were after death metal but they're a great example of the best of it

Have a go with these, should tide you over for at least a few minutes!

Try "Funeral For A Friend", especially their latest "Welcome Home Armageddon".
Very good for a bit of healthy headbanging. :!:

Some Heavy, some not so heavy, some good old fashioned rock n roll.

Guns N Roses
The Little Angels
Def Leppard
Faith No More
System of A Down
Killswitch Engage
The Cult
Motley Crue
Five Finger Death Punch
Marilyn Manson
Van Halen
Limp Bizkit

sooo finally got some money together and have gotten myself De Vermis Mysteriis by High On Fire
also fallen for a band called Hawk Eyes (previously known as Chickenhawk) not as heavy by any means but plenty of lovely screaming material

Now I just need a more steady income to get more, also after listening more to the likes of Maiden and Slayer, Metallica have pretty much lost all appeal
although Bullet I still listen to as some easy listening screamy singalong stuff
really good for doing housework to as you don't really miss anything when you pop the hoover on :lol:

also have been listening to GnR since I was 15 and recently been rinsing Appetite as it sounded awesome in the sun

if you want some good, new thrashy stuff, check out bands like Gama Bomb, Evile, Municipal Waste. They are good. its very debatable but I think Trivium is a really good band, their last 2 albums being really, really well put together. newer one In Waves is much more slick than Shogun, but both are great.

if you want some really heavy shit you can check out Opeth, Emperor, Hypocrisy, Dark Tranquillity (these guys are amazing), Gojira, Meshuggah, Edge of Sanity, Death, Strapping Young Lad, Nevermore (very underrated band). All these guys are personal favorites and can really do no wrong in my book.

Then you have stuff like...american heavy rock/metal stuff. Megadeth, Lamb of God (didn't care for their last 2 but the newest one is pretty good), Mastodon, The Sword, Slayer, Death Angel, Suicidal Tendencies, Shadows Fall

the singer from Strapping Young Lad, Devin Townsend, does amazing solo stuff. a good album to start with would be Addicted by Devin Townsend Project. it's pretty catchy, really heavy, has a great guest vocalist (the old singer from The Gathering, another really good band) and its definitely worth listening to. youtubes is your hero
