    You listen to Megadeth, Dio, and Metallica, but no Iron Maiden? IMO Iron Maiden slays them all. The albums I'd recommend are...

    Iron Maiden- Piece of Mind
    Iron Maiden- Somewhere In Time
    Iron Maiden- Powerslave
    Iron Maiden- The Seventh Son of a Seventh Son

    I will try to help you based on your list, but at the same time i will try to recommend stuff that will improve your collection a bit:

    Jimi Hendrix- Experience Hendrix: the best of Jimi hendrix(great introduction)
    Rush- 2112(not my favourite, but a great intoduction to real good prog rock, as opposite to DT)
    King Crimson- Red(complex and psychedelic but all the songs are quite catchy, but not in a conventional way)
    Judas Priest- Defenders of the Faith or Painkiller
    Tool- Aenima & Lateralus
    Corrosion of Conformity- Deliverance
    Porcupine Tree- Lightbulb Sun or In Absenthia
    Soundgarden- Badmotorfinger
    Faith no More- The Real Thing or Angel Dust
    Type o Negative- Bloody Kisses
    Carcass- Heartwork(for something a bit heavier, but still accessible)
    Death- Individual Thought Patterns

    this dude blows Vai and Satch completely out of the water, musically. (hell, technically, also)

    It's obvious you enjoy some amount of instrumental insanity from the LTE and DT's.

    Gordian Knot - S/T ( Mellow )
    Spastic Ink - Ink Complete ( The best technical )
    Frank Zappa - Waka/Jawaka ( The best jazzy )
    Vitalij Kuprij - Extreme Measures ( Excellent classical stylin)

    Other stuff.

    Symphony X - The Divine Wings of Tragedy
    Sepultura - Beneath The Remains
    Opthalamia - Via Dolorosa ( If you ever decide to try black metal, give this a listen, it's very sabbathy in a good way)

    Seriously, how long is a piece of string.

    Can you be a little more specific, explain what you like about these albums.

    if you like Liquid Tension, then you will also like Petrucci's solo album!

    Is there any death metal out there without the Cannibal Corpse lyrics?

    Uh, yes. Opeth :lol:

    And about 10,000 other bands. check out www.metal-archives.net for tons of bands. Usually pretty objective.

    also, I'd recommend this site www.progarchives.com . On this site you can find a lot of prog bands similar to LTE and DT you might like, but (in my opinion) better than both. However, of course be wary of reviews as people are very love/hate about the genre.

    I just thought giving you resources would be more productive than a list of bands.

    Death, Morbid Angel, Obituary, Atheist, Pestilence, Carcass. All of these have lyrics that are less gory and obscene than CC. Pretty much any albums from these bands.
