I'm pretty sure someone said this already, but Dream Theater uses secondary dominants in quite a few of their songs, like Hollow Years uses a V/vi, Another Day uses a V/V, The Spirit Carries On uses a V7/IV and a V/V, and I'm sure they use more.

None of those songs are really metal, they are all "power ballads" and nearer to pop than metal (not a bad thing at all).

If you consider Twisted Sister as metal, they have a V/V in the chorus of "Burn in Hell".

Also, the thread is pretty old.

I don't really think most Metal calls for secondary dominant chords...

I mean, why try to force it? 'Cause it might sound cool? It might also sound bad. Although, if you really want to find examples, then you probably should examine Progressive Metal.
