"Sunwheel" from Drudkh, "Heathen Tribes" from Primordial, "Unbesiegt" from Equilibrium and "Gutter Ballet" from Savatage are very danceable... At least for me. ^^

That song is great. The band's work is extremely groovy death metal, and I love it, though not every song is something I would call "danceable". I might be able to suggest a few others from them.

But instead, I'm going to suggest this song, which is the grooviest song Meshuggah has, and one of my favorite tracks from them:
