The longest song I have ever heard is American Pie by Don McLean which is 11+ min long and I could barely stand to listen to that....lol
For you, I definately recommend Dream Theater, if you don't know them already. A lot of their songs are 5-20 minutes long, but unlike standard long songs where it's just droning noise or repetitive beats, the tempo or song will suddenly change, which keeps the song interesting and keeps your attention. Plus if you like Heavy Metal, I'm betting you'd like them.
