    No emo screamo, papa roach, any of that SHIT. Lamb of God, Sick of It All, Dethklok, Heaven Shall Burn, GOD FORBID etc. etc.

    Post any that belong in this category. I'm on a music hunt.

    If you like those, you may like some European melodeath like:
    At the Gates, Carcass (specifically the album Heartwork), Dark Tranquillity, (old) In Flames, Eucharist, Hypocrisy, Edge of Sanity, Suidakra, Catamenia, Disarmonia Mundi, and Mercenary

    Yea. Not a band I listen to often though. Try Samael's "Solar Soul" if you're looking for something semi-similar to Rammstein (they sing in English though)

    Haven't heard of a few of those but sounds like my kinda stuff. Fear Factory is by far one of my fav bands. Any links or should I just hit up YouTube?

    Emo, Screamo, and Papa Roach are not Metal to begin with, and the groups you listed are fairly generic.

    Unexpect is one metal band that sits high atop a throne of uniqueness, if you can find it, buy In A Flesh Aquarium, easily one of the most eccentric and original albums I've listened to.

    Otherwise, here are a few of my favorite Metal groups;
    Pain of Salvation, Dream Theater, Ayreon, Riverside, Epica, Wintersun, Kamelot, Opeth, Ensiferum, Diablo Swing Orchestra, Symphony X, Therion, and Haggard.
    The Gathering and Porcupine Tree are two of my favorite groups, that I only mention because they both have some Metal material strewn about their discography, though The Gathering and Porcupine Tree are ordinarilly Trip Rock and Progressive Rock, respectively.

    Chimaira wasn't included why?


    Between The Buried and Me, Goatwhore, Daath, Soilwork, DevilDriver, I'm sure I could add more.


    And Fear Factory is one of, if not the best, band suggested in this thread. My favorite band of all-time. Will continue to be until they call it quits, and even then, I'm pretty sure they'll stay my favorite band.

    Metalcore is what you're looking for, but I'm sure you'll also enjoy melodic death metal too. Recommendations: In Flames, Soilwork, Killswitch Engage, At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity, Chimaira, Devildriver, Parkway Drive

    are you investing in stock or enjoying music? if you don't like it don't listen to it, to say they won't be popular in 5 years doesn't really mean anything to me.

    It seems to me like those types of bands are there for a trend and nothing else, they will cease to exist in 5 years.

    As much as I hate to sound like a douchebag, none of those bands listed in the original post were Metal. Although, some Metal you might like would be:
    • Cynic
    • Death
    • Cross Examination
    • Coroner
    • Cormorant (These guys are AWESOME and unsigned)
    Hope that helps.

    EDIT:
    Those choices are awesome. I love Korpiklaani.

    Wolves in the Throne Room, Akercocke, Behemoth, T.O.O.H, Abydos, Nile, 1349, Genocide Kommando, Blut Aus Nord, Frantic Bleep, Ulver(early stuff), Behold... The Arctopus, Turisas, and I'll throw Nemo in there but really only for their album presages. I could go on for a couple pages but that would be too much work.
