I don't listen metal too, with some exceptions.

Nightwish - My favorite. If you're into symphonic metal, give it a try.
Rammstein - Oh, wait. It's already mentioned.
Megadeth - Haven't listened too much, but Symphony of Destruction is my favorite so far.
Stam1na - Like Megadeth, not too much, still a great one. Oh, wait. It's finnish.
Babymetal - I've known this for at least two years, but never bothered to check their music. That changed recently. The result: I like it.

Cannibal Corpse is always good if you like Death Metal.
You could listen to Death.
You could listen to Dio.
There's a lot of good ones out there it just takes time to find them.

A lot of those are Metalcore or what I call them Emocore (copyright pending).

While I have nothing against them, you'll get ripped apart for calling Avenged Sevenfold metal lol.
Disturbed is a joke of a band.
Sabaton is a good one though.

Hmm then I think opinions differ in what we call Metal, sadly there is no set definition for things like this. So we can't call the animal by its name.

One thing I wonder about Disturbed is why they covered 80's pop songs (Land of Confusion by Genesis anyone?) on at least two of their albums.

Depends on what type of metal you like. I prefer the old school bands over the new ones-Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Motorhead, Accept, Dio, and the Big Four Thrash Bands (Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, and Slayer) and while I consider them more hard rock than metal, I also love AC/DC, Aerosmith, and Van Halen. I'm not a fan of 80's hair metal or nu-metal as well as death/black metal, the first two subgenres are just too gimmicky for me while the later I don't like the growling or the scary crowd they tend to generate.

Really?! no 1990s Anthrax, Fear Factory, Flotsam & Jetsam, Sepultura, Entombed or Helmet?

Fear Factory was my favorite band when I first got into metal. Only took me about a year to discover that they're at best generic. Concreto was pretty raw tho.

Sepultura is a must.

Depends on the subgenre of metal.
I find myself listening to either death metal or melodic folk metal

Gojira, Sepultura, meshuggah, opeth, anathema, Ghost (B.C), Death, Agalloch are my most listened.
Megadeth and Metallica's earlier stuff also plays very often

Yes! This! I didn't think anyone was going to mention the old school metal bands.

Otherwise, I'll also go ahead and recommend Sabaton, Iron Savior, Falconer, Blind Guardian, Manowar, Powerwolf, Bloodbound, Dream Evil, Nightwish, and Hammerfall. Then when you're tired of those, be sure to try out some Van Canto
