At first I thought you were talking about this. There don't seem to be many hardcore fans around here. Any more metal stuff that you can recommend?

There's lots of metal I could recommend. But, it depends on what kind of metal you like. Metalcore, Death Metal, Ambient Metal, Viking Metal ... blah blah blah blah ... subgenres ... blah blah blah.
For starters:

Metalcore: Buried in Verona - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjsd1nIjX_Q
Death Metal: Whisteria Cottage - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzpkBGsm8Gw
Ambient Metal: Sprialmountain - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wG3Qsc-05o
Viking Metal: Amon Amarth - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3FzlaDJveo

Oh, I almost forgot about a new band I discovered called Breakdown of Sanity. They're of the Melodic Metalcore/Deathcore genre.

I know I could look it up but I'll just ask (since I'm so tickled about forum activity)... Melodic Metalcore? One of the (generalised) critiques about metal is that it's often lacking in melody so I'm quite curious about this.

People generally critiquing metal and say it has no melody aren't actually listening to it. Metal is put together differently. A big difference is in the drumming. Drums started off as a way to keep the rhythm. Where as in metal, it's an equal to the lead guitarist. (S)he's not the only one that gets to do fancy stuff. Metal is usually about technicality and difficulty. A good portion of it is too fast and complex for the general listener.

Granted, I will admit that if you're not listening for it it can sound pretty chaotic. If you know what to listen for, you'll get it. I should also mention that it also depends on the quality of hardware you're listening to it on. If you're listening to familiar music on shitty hardware, you're still going to enjoy the music because you can fill in what's being distorted or left out.

Examples: Listening to instrumental metal and tell me it doesn't have any melody in it. A lot of people are turned off by the vocals because that's what people generally focus on. Take them away and you have something very beautiful.

Salt the Wound - Consequence (Labeled and as Melodic Deathcore band): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZdqn2_ISmQ
Nodes of Ranvier - Nagheenanajar (Christian Metalcore): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dL14FAlRu2w

Well, as a former serious musician, I do know what to listen for. Metal was never my personal preference but good composition and good musicianship is exactly that, regardless of genre.

Just listened to the Salt the Wound track and to me, it's what I'd call a mix of hard rock and progressive rock.

So many damned genre names now. I miss the simple days where it was basically: rock, blues, jazz, country and classical. So many damned genre names. Gets confusing.

This was the instrumental I was originally looking for and forgot the name of it. I had to go browse through my CD's.
From the Shallows - Beyond the Unknown: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STHwPfLd1MU

Needless to say, there are a lot of cookie cutter metal bands out there and a lot of shitty ones as well. The problem is is that the shitty ones are usually the ones that get radio play because they'll sulk down to covering Bon Jovi.
