I don't think there's a particular brand that suddenly makes you sound "metal" or "hardcore." Generally though, you'll probably want to buy thicker gauges as they function better with lower tunings. Metal and hardcore tends to have a lot of downtuned guitars. Much of your tone, though, will rely on your pickups and your amp.

That said, though, I use D'addario EXL110 10-46 almost exclusively on my guitars.

I prefer Ernie Ball Powers, doesn't matter if they're coated or not, they last the same either way.
