Hey, i'm trying to build my scale bank so i'm more comfortable soloing. Any particular modes i should check out for soloing metal? i'm a 'self-taught' guitarist of eight years whos trying to relearn the theory i forgot after ten years of piano intruction...

For soloing in metal, the Phrygian dominant and harmonic minor are popular. Pentatonic works. You can even use a major scale if you want, whatever fits in the song.

Those scales are nice, but relearn that theory (it will be much easier this time) and make sure you are playing something that makes sense, not just phrygian dominant because it's cool to play that scale (even though it's not always going to sound good).
