    Not a huge slide fan but first song that came to mind was Rocket Queen by Guns N' Roses, whether it's heavy or not is up to you ;)

    Three pages and no mention of Gov't Mule?

    Not as "heavy" as some mentioned here, but heavy enough:

    Not metal, but a song about spanking it with a phantom limb...

    It sounds as if the solo over the intro is done with a slide. Aside from that it is probably some of the tightest rhythm playing on record.

    Tribalfusion pointed out Ron Thal, aka Bumblefoot. While he doesn't use a traditional slide, the thimble he uses is really unique and he always incorporates slides on the fretless. The guy is a insane player and this is one of my favorite solos from him.....

    Of the 4 albums they have, the one 'slide' song that immediately popped into my head would have been "Rock N' Roll" off the Shovel lp.



    You beat me to it with Nub but running a strong 2nd in their repetoire of 'slide' songs would have to be "Zachariah "
