Currently I know some major scales and the major and minor pentatonic shapes but I'm mostly using an A minor pentatonic its getting very stale I've been improvising with backtracking, a few ballads and some metal. What is a good all around scale I can use to incorporate some metal techniques: tapping maybe sweeping? Also I might do some shredding on it.

Pick a key, find a progression, pick a scale that fits, learn it, play.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

..except maybe to answer his question

If you want another "metal" sounding scale, you could try the Phrygian or Phrygian Dominant (over relevant chord progressions, of course).

You can make any scale sound "metal". Except for the blues scale, which is reserved for BLUES ONLY!
