Trying to get into a new genre of metal and hard rock combined

#1
I love metal. I listen to bands like iron maiden as well as slayer metallica and megadeth. I'm trying to kind of get into a different kind of metal though. Kind of metal and hard rock. I want to get into bands like the sword. I don't mind if there's not good singing but I just don't like death metal screaming. Could some one please recommend me a heavy metal band like the sword who's got intense songs but not to intense. I'm thinking this would be 90s metal but more hard rock but with metal riffs. I'm beginning to like bands like the suicidal tendicies And the sword. Are there any more like this and what genre of metal would this be?

I never head The Sword before but I checked em out on myspace just now. You owe it to yourself to check out Sleep and The Melvins. Both are classics in the metal genre and I think you'll like them based on what I heard of of The Sword. Start with:

Sleep's Holy Mountain, Sleep
Gluey Porch Treatments, The Melvins

Metalcore maybe? Try Trivium, All That Remains, August Burns Red


What have you done!?
The lives of thousands in my hands
I’ve come to take back what’s rightfully mine and now you’re damned
The lights grow dark in their homes
But our road is lit by fire from the sky
So we push forward

Thanks the only song I heard from the sword is freya and I loved it's style. It's heavy but also good hard rock. Machine head is also really good.

Yes, what have you done? one of my friends likes that stuff and let me tell you if you don't like death metal you will NOT like that stuff *shudders at the mere mention of August Burns Sped*

New Mastodon, anyone? Their old stuff is death metal. But the new has basically no growls at all.

Other good choices:
Black Tide
Cellador (Power Metal!!!)
cKy
Clutch
Down
Dream Theater
GWAR
Revolution Mother
Sacred Mother Toungue (some growls/screams, mostly real singing though)
Testament
Turisas
Zimmer's Hole

For those of you who noticed that it was in aplhabetical order, that's because I just went down the list in my Ipod.
Like punk the way it used to be? Deranged Youth Its like what Warped Tour should be!

Want to hear something mind-blowing? Pit O' Bodies Its like an amateur hypnotist plus the Spanish Inquisition!

I wasn't flaming him actually, merely highlighting the fact that suggesting Metalcore in here will unfortunately get you flamed.
