Obscura, Cynic, any Death album that Steve DiGiorgio is on. Those are the ones that come to mind immediately, I'm sure there's a whole lot more.
R.I.P. My Signature. Lost to us in the great Signature Massacre of 2014.

If you're looking for some serious bass action, check out a lot of technical or melodic death metal bands.
Necrophagist, Obscura, Cannibal Corpse, Augury, The Black Dahlia Murder, Animosity, Beneath the Massacre, etc.

The list can go on forever haha.

Somehow I totally forgot about Mudvayne; they have some of the grooviest basslines known to man, in my opinion haha.

Sleep, Electric Wizard, early Black Sabbath. Doom metal bands use so much bass it's almost obscene.

This band never gets mentioned but they are all amazing musicians and the bass does come through the mix.

Yeah these are great and everything, but Iron ****ing Maiden.

This, it uses so much bass, apparently Harris likes to put himself high into the mix.

Sheehan's playing with Mr. Big is pretty prominent, and his solo work is all about the bass.

Some songs by Megadeth and Anthrax have quite a bit of bass fills and solos - Skeletons in the Closet, Five Magics, Chosen Ones, Poison was the Cure, Lone Justice and Caught in a Mosh come to mind.

Out of the lot, Mudvayne is my choice every time. Ryan's lines seem more musical to me than some of the others that just seem to be technical for technicalty's sake.

I'm just gonna second Black Dahlia and Cannibal Corpse. Those killed my plucking hand for weeks, but it was so damn worth it.
modes are a social construct

Mastodon, Between the Buried and Me, Augury, and I like Machine Heads bass lines, though, they aren't that technical of difficult, but that doesn't mean they aren't good.

Edit:
Crap, I forgot Intronaut and Revocation!

Cannibal Corpse, Obscura, Sadus, Nile, Iron Maiden, and Pestilence are a few that come to mind.

Quote by bass-boy-garith
No one mentioned that goof Cliff Burton. I'm both shocked and pleased.

Because his basslines are much less prominent due to his tone and him being buried in the mix. And the title says bands, nowadays Metallica doesn't have prominent bass most of the time
