I dont think Megadeth and Metallica necessarily make this list as these bands had more of an influence during the 80s. These bands continued to rule in the 90s and 2000s their influence on new bands and the overall metal sounds depleted later on.

I also dont think Sonata Arctica, Helloween or Stratovarious have made a strong impact on the global metal scene. And Opeth... as great as they are, I have yet to really notice a large influence on the sound, scene and new bands... maybe in a few years we will see.
Please be kind 
and rewind
