Actually JUST finished compiling this list myself. It's still somewhat sketchy, especially within the last 5, but it'll do.

01.Iron Maiden
02.Savatage
03.Edguy
04.Evergrey
05.Blind Guardian
06.Dungeon
07.Nocturnal Rites
08.Stratovarius
09.Gamma Ray
10.Queensryche (1983-1994)
11.Symphony X
12.Riot
13.Dream Theater
14.Fates Warning
15.Bruce Dickinson
16.Redemption
17.Masterplan
18.Firewind
19.Royal Hunt
20.Vanishing Point
21.Dio
22.Saxon
23.Primal Fear
24.Pink Cream 69
25.Circle II Circle

In addition to that, I will name 4 bands I used to love that would've easily made this list like 4 years ago, but now I can't justify the love anymore. Still like them, just not nearly as much as I used to.:
01.Iced Earth
02.Sonata Arctica
03.Hammerfall
04.Kamelot

And also, a special nod to 5 newer bands that could easily secure a spot neither the bottom of this list if they just release one more GREAT album.
01.Pagan's Mind
02.Seventh Wonder
03.Circus Maximus
04.Avantasia
05.Pyramaze
