    Since you didn't say Serj Tankian, I'm going to suggest Serj Tankian.


    He's the main vocal of SoD, but is currently doing a solo. He has one album out so far, called "Elect the dead".

    Korn, Godsmack, Slipknot, Soulfly, Stone Sour. Typically metal/hardrock. Good stuff.

    *WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP* MALLCORE ALERT MALLCORE ALERT!

    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=mallcore

    definitions 2 and 3.

    May I suggest some REAL metal bands!
    Amon Amarth (Death/Viking)
    Iron Maiden (Heavy)
    Blind Guardian (Power)
    Ensiferum (Viking)
    Black Label Society (Heavy)
    Megadeth (Thrash/Heavy)
    Anthrax (Thrash/Heavy)
    Hammerfall (Power)
    Children of Bodom (Extreme Power/Melodic Death)
    Cannibal Corpse (Death)
    Dio (Power)
    Judas Priest (Power)
    Pantera (Groove Thrash)

    just remember kids, metal>mallcore!

    OH btw, most potential metalheads never like death metal or black metal when they first hear it, so don't be surprised if you like a lot of those other bands and not the death ones.
