    Judging by the bands you posted, you aren't into particularly heavy bands, so I'd suggest stuff like:

    Pantera
    Metallica
    Anthrax
    Megadeth
    Devildriver
    Lamb of God
    Slipknot

    You could always pop into the Rock and Metal Society. Some really great music gets posted there, both old and new.

    Hahaha, made my day.

    First of all OP, stop listening to that trite, here's some real metal:

    Death
    Morbid Angel
    Ufomammut
    Sleep
    Aspid
    Megadeth
    Black Sabbath
    Agalloch
    Alcest
    Deathspell Omega
    Darkthrone
    Arcana Coelestia
    Ne Obliviscaris
    Between the Buried and Me

    I've deliberately covered multiple subgenres instead of just running off with one, give you a feel for what the genre really has to offer.

    DO NOT JUST IGNORE THIS POST, LISTEN TO THEM ALL AND FEEDBACK ME OP.

    Honestly I would say let him go through his mainstream phase. While BFMV's quality is... debatable (crap) they're mainstream and accessible and he'll get over it soon enough. Who listens to Darkthrone before Linkin Park for example?

    At least he's not listening to Brokencyde and Attack Attack!.

    Anyway, my recommendations would be Killswitch Engage, All That Remains, Architects, God Forbid, Mercenary, all the old melodeath greats like In Flames and Dark Tranquillity etc. Nothing wrong with starting slow.

    I listened to black metal before I listened to Maiden. I never went through a phase of liking metallica and the other 'light' metal bands....though I've been liking LP on and off for about ten years now. Currently I am liking them, but only their newer material.

    You're in the minority tbh. Most people seem to go through phases before liking less accessible genres like black metal. If you can listen to it straight up, then more power to you but if you're in an A7X and BFMV phase then you probably won't be able to.

    Not sure if I'm gonna get killed by metalheads for this, but here goes. When I started listening to A7X, Metallica, Killswitch Engage etc. I really got into the band Nightwish (not their recent stuff, really strange change they've made) and their first 5 or 6 albums. Not everyone's tankard of Warsteiner, but give them a listen!

    My favourite album of theirs! My favourite songs of theirs are 'The Siren', 'Planet Hell', and 'I Wish I Had an Angel', all of which are from their 'Once' album, but check out the songs 'Wishmaster' from the album of the same name, and 'Bye Bye Beautiful' 'The Poet and the Pendulum' and 'Escapist' from their Dark Passion Play album.

    Hell or Highwater
    Machine Head
    Death
    Pantera
    Shinedown
    Rise Against
    Slayer

    That's quite a range of bands from the light rock of Rise Against to the band that lent it's name to Death Metal. There are a hell of a lot of other bands out there that I haven't had the pleasure of listening to yet, you can't go wrong with anyone here's suggestions really.

    EDIT: I forgot about In Flames, one of the bands that really got me into metal, saw it one someone else's post and it triggered my memory.

    In terms of what I'd rather listen to I'd say Blink > Napalm Death > Slipknot

    I don't listen to any of them out of choice though.
