Didn't really know where to post this, so here goes:

Is there a such thing as Blues Metal (a combination of the Blues and Heavy Metal), and if so, where can I hear some good examples of it?

There are a few examples of it in the album 'Ki' by Devin Townsend Project.
#3
Zakk Wylde?
Alice in Chains?

use your head bro! all metal comes from blues!

My bad, I'm running on 48 hours straight of being awake (cant sleep), so I spaced on this question.

bout the closest thing u can get to that is groove metal. and examples are late pantera stuff(more then early stuff), some machine head,exhorder and sepultura.

A great combination of blues and metal is The Cult. Not really heavy metal, but pretty hard, and some great bluesy guitarwork. Sonic Temple is probably their bluesiest.

There's a vid somewhere of Malmsteen playing over a 12 bar on youtube, im not sure if that what you are looking for but its pretty interesting to see.

Black Sabbath.

The Stoner/Doom genre is dedicated to creating a 70s kinda of a sound, that might be what you're looking for.

are you talking things that sound "Bluesy" with metal lyrics or "Metal" with the blues scale. In the later case.

Black Stone Cherry is a good example. More of a rock band overall...but very blues and metal oriented.

Or the entire stoner metal genre

Sludge metal is what you want. Look up Eyehategod, The Melvins, Crowbar, Corrosion of Conformity, Acid King, Acid Bath, Dax Riggs (actually completely different, but still good), Down, Superjoint Ritual, etc.

Also, Motorhead.
