    Try X-Japan - Blue Blood. Japanese speedmetal + hardrock + ballads, I really like the bass on that album. Check it out:

    Of course, the bassist has more breathing room in the slower songs.

    First band, along with Virus, to come to mind for me. Then Ephel Duath.

    A fair bit of Akercocke has some awesome basslines too. And, whilst some may dislike them, Muse have some genius basswork.

    The new Obscura Album - Cosmogenesis , also features some great (fretless) Bass-Work. Actually the bassist [Jeroen Paul Thesseling] was playing flamenco and world music before he joined obscura and that contributes a lot to the range of sound on the album.
    (Not only the Bass-work makes this album worth listening to... awesome high quality music.)
