Hi. I'm looking to check out what you guys would recommend in terms of Metal suited for working out and other intense physical activity. For reference, I really dig stuff like:

-Melodic Black/Death Metal like Dissection

-Second Wave BM bands

-More traditional sounding Metal bands like Iron Maiden, Atlantean Kodex, and early Mercenary (DEN)

-Funeral Mist/DSO/Katharsis

Pretty much anything slightly catchy and triumphant sounding, or really dark and violent sounding. Something that will motivate yourself to climb higher out of your comfort zone, or music that makes you want to go to war and stab someone different than you in the face 5 or 6 times with a spear before advancing to close with and destroy your next victim.

Thank you in advance

Well, I don't know your opinion on *this*... Skip to 00:48 if the beginning isn't to your liking.

Suidakra is a good one, as mentioned. I also like Amon Amarth and Nile for working out.

Limbonic Art might scratch the black metal itch. Some of their mid-later period stuff is more riff-centric and appreciably violent sounding:

Oh yeah Zyklon too.

The debut (and only) album of the Mexican second wave BM band Xibalba has all the triumphant feel of pagan metal but with the power of black metal, and without any of the wussy stuff (clean vocals etc.)

i'll second Amon Amarth, expecially their later records! to me they are the perfect choice for this:
simple, triumphant sounding, loudly produced and their tempo is usually steady and not very fast.. it's pretty distracting for me to lift or run with constant blast beats or lots of tempo changes!

I've been into bodybuilding for a long time, and at the gym I must have metal with good cadence and as much weight as what I'm lifting. Although I don't listen much to your genres, to me the pure power of the following is what fits your description above ...

Dying Fetus - Reign Supreme
Youtube: show

Cannibal Corpse - Evisceration Plague
Youtube: show

Darkapathy - Condemned In Black
Youtube: show

Dawn of Demise - Hate Takes Its Form
Youtube: show

Volturyon - Coordinated Mutilation
Youtube: show


If you want to stick more to your preferred traditional metal, maybe ...

Venom - From The Very Depths
Youtube: show

Angel Of Sodom - Divine Retribution
Youtube: show
