Black Sabbath of all the "classic" metal bands I think, as they spawned my favorite sub-genre of metal, doom metal. Slow, pondering, textural and epic. Bands such as Ulver (well, my fav album by them at least, "Bergtatt"), Agalloch, Candlemass, In the Woods, and Doomsword. Although my fav metal band would probably be Agalloch, folk-influenced doom metal. Fantastic stuff.

Good Lord...

Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath -- those are not metal bands.

"Acid Rock" would be the correct genre.

I don't know, I'd classify Black Sabbath as more Proto-doom, and listening to some of it, I'd call it more "metal" than LZ or DP due to the instrumentation, scooped mids in the distortion, and overall heavyness. Of course, it really matters on the album one is speaking of.

I am appreciating Metallica a lot more recently. Although it doesn't appear to the casual listener as heavy metal, numbers like "Nothing Else Matters" are full of feeling without the need to go mental on the guitar.

MEGATHIS!! Love Mudvayne. And I liked Metallica up until after the black album. Definitely whiners.

A question of who's the "best" metal band is like asking which beer is the best. But I'll put my vote in for Pantera. RIP Dimebag.

Surprised nobody's mentioned Dethklok yet. Cartoon metal band, I know, but I think the show's hilarious and the CD is ****ing sweet! You want machine gun drumming? Gene Hoglan delivers:

Black Sabbath has influenced every dark metal band since 1970

Someone else knows about Lacuna Coil? Holy crap!

Mudvayne gets a vote from me too!

Lamb of God is the best current metal band. And now that Randy has lightened up on the sauce they put on a hell of a show. Pantera was my favorite in high school. Opeth is on heavy rotation in the truck. Every album is amazing. Its like those guys put on a symphony and then kill everything in their path. F-ing beautiful.

Oh and Megadeth is sh*t. Dave Mustaines voice makes me want to take a bath with a toaster.

Opeth rules my iPod currently. Saw them with Dream Theater not that long ago. Incredible show.
Coheed and Cambria is growing on me as well. While not really metal, they are awesome in concert.

There is so much good music in the metal genre. Pity that some folks prefer to draw lines and draw conclusions rather than appreciate what is out there.
