Guitars go from high to low pitch at fast speeds
Drums going insane, but staying in tempo with rest of song
Drums with double bass
loud bass
mixture of screaming and singing

Yeah I pretty much explained the whole album "Waking the Fallen" by A7X, but yeah thats about it.

Really low-tuned or 7-string guitars...it doesn't matter what style of music they're used in, but if it has that in it, I'm probably gonna like it.

I know plenty believe me. I've seen both Avenged Sevenfold and Bullet For My Valentine live, so don't tell me I don't know my metal.

Definitely, but sometimes a really soulful song might lack the sweet bass :| Then again it's not soulful if there is none. Muahah.

Dynamic or "ear-pleasing" guitar. At least something sensible and is non-repetitive.
A bass that effectively sandwiches the guitar and drums, with color and style at best of course. Or the bass leading the way.
Drums should make your heart either explode or melt out of the pores of your body.

I guess that's it

you need a nice chord progression over the song and a great solo, i think a good example would be somthing like Slow Dancing In A Burning Room by John Mayer but there are many others

I actually don't know. Some songs it's because of the chords, others because of the guitar solo, others with the "groove", etc.
