It varies from band to band. For instance Metallica uses a lot of basic power chords, while Megadeth uses more experimental rhythms.

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.

The title says Hardcore/Metal. So learn to read before you put other people down.

The best thing you can do for your rhythm is to listen to the bands that you like and analyse their rhythms. Look out for things like the chords they use, duration, dynamics, palm muting, downpicking etc. Use the metronome all the time.

I just used them as an example of how bands in the same genre have different styles.
