Slayer's great, but Pantera's best dozen or so songs are just as good. Even better than both is Phil Anselmo's other band, Down. Their first album, NOLA, is pretty much the best metal I've ever heard. Highly recommend picking it up.

Meshuggah's Catch Thirtythr33 is a constant favorite, but some others that have made their way back into my regular rotation lately are:
Slipknot: Subliminal Verses Something Must Die: Riding in an Ambulance Hatebreed: The Rise of Brutality
As for new stuff, not too much comes to mind. Musicians need to start doing drugs again or something. But I am looking forward to that new Tool coming out May 2nd. Hopefully that will hold some good things...
My tastes aren't everybody's; for example, Diabolus in Musica is one of my favorite Slayer albums, and I think a lot of their fans thought it was mediocre. But NOLA is pretty high up there for me, love to hear your choices.
