Heaven and Hell, Holy Diver.

You'll find a lot of metal riffs are in Drop tunings so you're gonna struggle a bit more.

The only one I can think of that springs to mind is Raining Blood.

Depends on what you think is easy. What do you play right now that you find pretty simple?
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

metallica

i think i spelled it wrong...
but if your looking for easy, standard tuning riffs, metallica is the way to go.
my 6 best friends:
Ibanez Artcore AF75
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser
LTD H-207 7 string
Ibanez Acoustic

I wouldn't consider their music something for a beginner to play. But they do have a few easy ones, like Enter Sandman,

alittle bit of i dont know by randy rhoads
and a couple other things...
i taught my self everything and i like to make my own stuff up mostly...are there any heavy metal chords other than

--4---
--4---
--2---
i think its a g chord?

Pantera - Walk

Pantera - Cemetery Gates

Pantera - This Love

And that power chord roots on F#/Gb. G is on the third fret E (6th) string.

If those are too easy move on to Mouth For War and Primal Concrete Sledge.

You should drop tune to D - just tune the 6th string to the A string on the 7th fret instead of the usual 5th fret -that'll give you D.

Then you can learn Tool - which go from easy to moderate difficulty with some odd time signatures.
