Check out the Product section at the top of the page. You don't have to look past your own name. A Scott Voltage would be a sweet option.

Newer than 2010?

Norco Truax
Banshee Darkside
Transition TR250
Santa Cruz Driver 8 (on the heavy side)

Or a lot of new(ish) ENDURO bikes can be built up as freeride bikes depending on your weight.
For example, you take a Yeti SB66 and put a 36 up front, coil in the back, and dual ply tires on and you have something that can tackle most terrain. Of course ":Freeride" is open to interpretation so ENDURO bikes may not fit what you are looking for.
