Highly debatable, but try these...

1. Trooper, Iron Maiden
2. Master of Puppets, Metallica
3. Raining Blood, Slayer
4. Lord Hypnos, InFlames
5. Cracking the Whip, InMe
6. The Glass Prison, Dream Theater
7. Surfing with the Alien, Joe Satriani
8. Flogging the Horses, SikTh
9. Bleed, Meshuggah
10. Jordan, Buckethead

The stuff near the end is...difficult, alright?

I tried to throw in a variety of playing styles/techniques in the songs to have a stab at too, and 9. and 10. are probably as hard as each other, but for different reasons (Completely different playing!)

Most of it isn't shred, but it's for picking speed, right?

It's arrogant because:

1 - You're only looking within metal

2 - There is no way you've heard every metal song there is

3 - Rhythmically metal tends to be quite simple

4 - Claiming to have "mastered" anything about guitar is stupid; all the worlds greatest players will admit to being continual students.

I object to you use of the word "mastered" more than anything else. Anyway, if you're so good at it then post a note perfect cover of Bleed by Meshuggah, Lashed to the Slave Stick by Nile and Stabwound by Necrophagist.

But in your sig it says you cant play 'through the fire and flames'! You must be really bad man! ........... /right

I don't think you're being arrogant because we all know that what you meant was, theres not enough challenge left in rhythm and you want something knew. My best guess is you don't know what the word 'mastered' really entails

some people just like to put grains of salt on every snail they come by

Still, you should try the rhythm to Wake up Dead (megadeth). How about that little solo stuck in there?

If you can do the rhythm to the Guns N Roses Song "Don't Damn Me" and hit EVERY NOTE in that rhythm then you might be pretty good.

Then send me a audio clip of it! I'll let you know if you've mastered any technique.

I think a good song to start learning advanced lead techniques on...

Van Halen- "Eruption" Here you can learn how to tap yourself to death!.

All Guns N Roses songs are a great introduction to lead guitar... but specifically on the song "Coma" the solo that comes after long clean part about mid song is a good solo to get your fingers acurate and used to moving fast. I don't hear Guitarists who can get that part of the song right with the sliding down the neck presicion and speed needed to make it sound fluid like the record.

Before I take flack for saying Guns N Roses in the same sentance as Shread just let me explain that even though Slash is not generally a shread he does do runs that are very hard and help a great deal to give your left hand entry into shreading. Besides explain the exact definition of shread? everybody has their own Idea lol

Joe Satriani- "Surfin With The Alien". Just watch a bunch of videos by this guy and you'll learn tons! even if you don't play his style of music he's got great advice and techniques to help all stages of Guitarists.

Megadeth- "Trust". Has a good mix of bending,Vibrato and tremolo picking during the solo to help you get an idea of lead techniques used by shreaders.

Ted Nugent-"Fred Bear" Another song that has whammy bar dive bombs good vibrato and fast paced runs and tremolo picking in the solo.

These are in no specific order because what I may find hard and what you find hard may be entirely 2 different things!.

Actually, as long as you have a kill switch jordan is one of the easier songs in the list you named.
