I can't believe somebody posted Disturbed - Believe on this thread. That has got to be the thinnest, crappiest, weakest guitar sound I've ever heard IMO. Don't get me wrong I love Disturbed.. but I just don't "get" that guitar sound.
Nothing personal at all.. obviously people have vastly different ideas of what good tone is.
Also, people's idea of "heavy" is interesting too.. when I think "heavy" a band like Chevelle is not even on the radar
for me (great band as well). I was thinking like Prong - Cleansing or White Zombie's first album.. Sepultura - Roots.
Anyway, great thread.
