learn some theory, and use youtube to see how other players use metronomes.
then feel daft for posting this.
You can downpick 300 BPM but cant do Master or Puppets ,they must be wrong.
Hmm the intro riff is abit tiring (the 0,1,2,0,1,3,0,1,4 etc.) but the verse shouldnt be too bad. Try and putting the song on guitar pro and do it abit slower. You have to really discipline yourself and focus on what your doing ,your picking hand should be fine if its just doing the same motion its just linking the 2 up and keeping the pace.
it depends. Say you're playing Master of puppets,

  PM PM    PM PM    PM PM       PM PM    PM PM        
  E  E  E  E  E  E  E  E     E  E  E  E  E  E  E  E   

  PM PM    PM PM    PM PM  
  E  E  E  E  E  E  E  E   

The time signature is 4/4, and its somewhere near 220bpm, and those are eighth notes. so for each click of the metronome, you want to play two notes. Just practice that slow, and speed up when you get comfortable with it at low bpm, and eventually you will get used to playing faster and faster

yea how many times am i suppose to

Depends on what kind of notes you are playing. I think you're probably trying to play 1/16 notes, so play 4 notes for each beat.

Edit: listen to him ^. didnt realise that MOP were eighth notes..

are you doing quarters at 300 bpm? MoP is eigths at 220-ish bpm. or just do quarters at 440 if you can get a metronome that fast

A woman's perspective is great, you get to stare down at least one top without anyone caring.

No Comment! But i'm curious, how long have you been 'playing guitar' without a metronome?
Since I don't understand what is "facepalm" about this thread, I think I better follow the advice here too.
