Recommend me a metal band?
Off topic, but...

Just looked at your avatar, & by coincidence I watched The Wrong Trousers last night !!
metal..... i haven't explored deap int actual metal yet but i could tell you some of the (subjectively lame) mainstream metal bands.. other than metallica.
disturbed, korn, deathklock, fly leaf, and many many more.
I'd have to disagree with Flyleaf. ^ I, personally, wouldn't consider them metal in any way, shape or form.

Suggested by my iPod (though I know many of you may disagree with me):

Amon Amarth (I don't know how to classify them)
Apocalyptica (symphonic metal)
Arch Enemy (dunno classification)
Dimmu Borgir (I don't know how to classify them either)
Eluveitie (folk metal)
Ensiferum (viking/folk metal)
Epica (symphonic metal)
Kamelot (symphonic metal)
Korpiklaani (viking/folk metal)
Lamb of God (apparently they're a Christian metal band?)
Slipknot (nu metal)
Stone Sour (..possibly?)
Trivium (nu metal)
Winds of Plague (don't know how to classify them)

And then of course there are those who have already proven themselves:

Iron Maiden
Judas Priest

A friend and I recently had a debate as to what the definition of "true metal" was. I myself am a fan of Bullet For My Valentine, but can see why metalcore could be considered "the enemy of true metal," as he so kindly put it. We got into comparing lyrics, sound, stage presence....

but my brain can only function so late into the night and we never reached a conclusion.
I shall recommend a very good metalist -Yngwie Malmsteen , he's good.
I definitely forgot Manowar. They're definitely worth a listen.
Lamb Of God, DevilDriver, Trivium, All That Remains, Shadows Fall, Killswitch Engage, and Down are all good current metal bands. Trivium really got me into metal, i recommend anything from Shogun or Ascendency.
I was like you, not a great fan of metal but I do like System Of A Down & Lamb Of God.
