Some of my personal all-time favorites and general recommendations, without going TOO much into specifically "my" kind of music that is probably not at all what you're looking for. Just trying to keep this in the vein of traditional/classic metal and hard rock with a few of my "all time favorites" from the Prog/Power subgenres.

Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast, Piece of Mind, Powerslave, Somewhere in Time, and Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. Really, you should be familiar with all 5 of these records if you're a metal fan.

Black Sabbath - Heaven and Hell
Dio - Holy Diver
Rainbow - Rising
Thin Lizzy - Black Rose
Saxon - The Power and the Glory
Queensryche - Operation : Mindcrime, The Warning
Fates Warning - Parallels
Savatage - Streets, Edge of Thorns, Hall of the Mountain King
Anthrax - Spreading the Disease
Blind Guardian - Imaginations From the Other Side
Helloween - Keeper of the 7 Keys
Bruce Dickinson - Accident of Birth
Whitesnake - Whitesnake
Dream Theater - Images and Words
Evergrey - In Search of Truth
WASP - The Crimson Idol
Riot - Thundersteel, The Privilege of Power
Symphony X - V: The New Mythology Suite
Kansas - Masque
King's X - Dogman

Welcome to the site.

I was going to recommend some albums based on the bands mentioned above, but I guess I'll just recommend some albums I find flawless:

Celtic Frost - Monotheist
Church of Misery - Houses of the Unholy
Saint Vitus - Born Too Late
Sigh - In Somniphobia (not necessarily flawless, but worthy of a listen nevertheless)
Neurosis - The Eye of Every Storm
Agalloch - Ashes Against the Grain
Autopsy - Mental Funeral
Arsis - A Celebration of Guilt
Carcass - Heartwork
Clutch - Clutch
Coroner - Grin
Coroner - Mental Vortex
Corrosion of Conformity - Deliverance
Crowbar - Broken Glass
Cult of Luna - Salvation
Cynic - Traced in Air
Down - NOLA
At the Gates - Slaughter of the Soul
Enslaved - Axioma Ethica Odini
Godflesh - Streetcleaner
Ihsahn - After
Intronaut - Valley of Smoke OR Prehistoricisms (can't go wrong with either)
Jucifer - Throned in Blood
Katatonia - Brave Murder Day
Kylesa - Static Tensions
Meshuggah - Destroy Erase Improve
Nachtmystium - Assassins: Black Meddle, Pt. 1
Obscura - Cosmogenesis
The Ocean - Anthropocentric
Opeth - Blackwater Park
Russian Circles - Enter

I'm guessing (and hoping) that slap has already shown you Death, so I'll leave it at that. Tried to keep the extreme metal at a minimum, too, since you don't seem to be too into that spectrum of metal.
9/24 Beirut
10/18 Opeth
10/19 The Tallest Man on Earth
11/5 Titus Andronicus
11/22 The Vaccines

I think it's because most of their fans have only heard the self titled album. Rehashed is great though.
