Does anybody know any good new metal bands? I'm trying to expand my music collection.

I think Slipknot is metal x3 They're pretty good, if you haven't listened to them.

I'd probably wind up listing most of the really, really obvious ones everyone knows about. So errrmm...

*has to dig up old music folders*

Bloodsimple, Blind Guardian and Rise Against are some of my favorites. Not even sure Rise are that metal, more indie/scene really. But then, I listen to the lighter side of metal most of the time.

Bloodsimple - Dead Man Walking is a personal fav of mine atm =3

Rise Against are a punk/post-hardcore band.

By new metal, do you mean stuff no-one's heard of, or just "new" stuff?

In any case - Lamb Of God, Arch Enemy, Norma Jean, Clutch, Botch...you don't really need to listen to anything other than those.

I'm not a big fan of many of the new metal bands, but Mastodon kicks ass. Gwar are awesome too, but their music isn't for everyone due to the themes of their songs. Megadeth is always a classic Pantera too, and Slayer.

My favorites:

Tool!
Pantera
System of a Down
Ministry (only the old stuff is particularly good)
Mastodon

EDIT: None of this is "extreme metal", like Lamb of God or Cannibal Corpse or anything.

Coroner, http://www.designvortex.com/coroner/ <- pretty decent info about them if old.
Venom
Manowar
Bethlehem
Whiplash
The Great Kat - more of outsider stuff, opinions vary. I like, some can't stand.

btw if you don't know already http://www.metal-archives.com/index.php is pretty handy site to look for some information about bands, pretty handy for the less known stuff.

NOT TO MENTION....

...Nightwish.

Seriously, how could I have forgotten them?  HOW COULD ANY OF YOU? D:

They probably won't be your sort of thing, but it never hurts to mention them.

Cherry, if you love Nightwish, consider exploring Within Temptation and Kamelot.

Ah, information. In my mind those bands you like kind of make me think you might be interested in Sonata Arctica, Cantata Sangui and Lunatica.

I just listened to Lunatica and Within Temptation and they're both awesome. Thanks for your suggestions guys.
Kamelot and Sonata Arctica are two of my favorites also btw X3 

Epica is a good band too if guys havent listened to it.

Not sure if they're considered metal as much as screamo, but I ADORE Drop Dead, Gorgeous. They're amazing.

Why has no one said System of a Down yet? :3

I consider them metal, even if they ain't.
