Really, it depends on the context of the song in my opinion. In the most simple terms I can explain, if you play a song in generally higher voicings, and then revert to a lower selection of notes later, it'll most likely sound ''heavier'' by comparison. I just don't see the point in being heavy. That's just like playing your low E as fast as you can in succession.

And believe me, I'm not bashing you or being biased. I've gone through my heavy phases and still listen to some pretty far out bands. But I just don't see the point.

If I were to recommend anything, check out some old thrash, or any black metal - REAL stuff. Not Cradle or Dimmu Borgir. Artists like Skelewitch and so on.

You are retarded.

TS, if you want a good heavy riff in E standard, check out Deliverance by Opeth.

Mate, it's not necessary to play in drop D to get a heavy sound. That's cheating in my opinion ;p
Just learn a little theory surrounding the 'metal' sound, and you'll get it.
