New to drums

I've recently bought an Alesis DM6 Electric Drumkit. I've been playing my Uncle's kit for about a year so i'm not completely new, but i'm kinda stuck on what to do next. I want to start learning full songs but i'm not sure which ones are best to start with :/.

I mainly listen to Metal (as you can probably tell from signature). So can anyone help me and recommend some simple Metal songs to start with?

Breed - Nirvana. Not really metal, but it's easy on drums.

depends on what you can play comfortably and at what tempo, do you have a double bass pedal? Because I could recommend a host of Metallica and Megadeth songs, Airbourne are pretty good for endurance practice.

I see you also live in herts

Anything by Lars Ulrich

Seriously though, metal aint for the faint hearted you need to learn some serious technique to get anywhere near a decent speed and independence.
Try some sludge metal beats, nice and slow but with great groove.

Yeah. I play Guitar in a Metal band so I know it's a pretty technical genre aha. All i'm really doing at the moment (and have been for the last year) is just playing funk and rock beats and stuff lol. I just dunno where to start with learning full songs .

I'd start with Black Sabbath, something simple-ish and not to fast, like Paranoid.

An alternative you may enjoy would be - Do a home recording with you on guitar. Record a few different songs, at dif tempos even. See what you come up with playing along. You'll know how the riffs progress, and when, so you'll be able to play fills and beats accordingly.
