What make/gauge strings would be best for me. Need them mainly for standard tuning but sometimes for D. (Metallica, Iron Maiden, Children of Bodom etc)

Ernies, DR, Dean Markley, GHS Boomers and low tuned version GHS boomers

At least a 46 on low

sdo something like ernie balls skinny top heavy bottom?

D'addario XL 10-46's. If you played drop D more than standard then D'addario XL 10-52s. GHS boomers are a waste of money IMO. Ernie Ball make good sets in the sizes I stated above but after spending a few months playing between EB and D'ad strings I reckon Daddarios sound/feel (kinda feel) the same, if not better and are cheaper.
