    Use Last.fm/Audioscrobbler. It suggests bands based on the stuff you listen to. It's introduced me to a few bands I now regularly listen to.

    Also, if you like Within Temptation/Nightwish try Epica.

    Judging by your list, you'll probably find Korn appealing (check out their earlier stuff and latest album). They were heavily influenced by RATM. Ross Robinson who produced the first Slipknot albums also produced the first Korn albums (and latest one)... Korn have done some decent stuff but I don't really like them anymore:

    Early Korn:


    Very new Korn:


    I highly recommend Mushroomhead, also. I'm not as much into the new stuff as I am old, but around the XX/XIII era they're fucking amazing. I think they have much more talent than Korn... though they're not Gods when it comes to guitars:

    Mushroomhead XIII-era (weakest song on the album, all songs are very artistic):


    New Mushroomhead (one of the strongest songs on a mellow album):


    I could list more but let's see if you like these first. I like anything from Jazz to Death Metal.

    if you like parkway drive and bullet for my valentine, you can try As I Lay Dying, All That Remains, August Burns Red.
    if you like Within Temptation, you can try Symphony X, Sonata Arctica.
    and AC/DC, you can always try Kiss, Rush (not so similar, but worth listening),
    cant think of other bands right now

    MASTODON, their last 3 albums have been in the top 25 albums of their respective years. I reccamend blood mountain listen to it while doing nothing to really get into it since the entire album (except the last song, the last song of all amost all their albums are dedicated too the elephant man) has this interweaving story that is expressed by vocals and instrumentals
    if for some reason you don't like it listen their newest album crack the Skye it nowhere near as heavy as their previous album but has a similar type of feel with each song continueing the story, and has an awesome 11min epic song

    and just for a bonus I suggest mudvaynes L.D. 50 for an alternative metal album

    and as an extra bonus suggestion the germain band die apokolischtien rhieter (I most Lilkely just butchered that) album all you need is love, and trust me it's a metal album

    and finnaly I suggest incubus's S.C.I.E.N.C.E. it has a techno, funk, metal, and a rage type rap sound and it kick's ass

    i actually like leviathan more, but i dont recommend as the first album to hear from mastodon, neither blood mountain. because those have vocals that are hard to get used to. if you want to give mastodon a try, start with crack the skye

    Porcupine Tree. A band out of the UK, they've been slowly but surely gaining in popularity.

    Rock with some metal and folk mixed in + pure, raw talent = Great band.

    The song in this link is one of their best.

    If you like the Foo Fighters and wish they sounded more like their first two albums then check out the band in my sig.
