first of all learn the major scale once you got that one down

the minor scales(harmonid,melodic,natural)
pentatonics they work
try adding some chromatics in that

if you want really dark use harmonic minor then off each of you chords play harmoinc minor, (ie C5 G5 F#5 and while on C5 play C minor, while on G5 play G-minor, and while on F#5 play F#minor) it's an old trick used to make things really dark

YEa. Thanxx but what About soloing. I know the harmonic minor scale but it kinda becomes hard to implement

So... for soloing, when the rhythm plays a chord play harmonic minor of the same key as the chord, change the key with the chord C harmonic minor over a C5 chord, then E harmonic minor over an E5 chord, and so on and so forth

What scales should I use practically to shred and for Death metal???


Scales don't make a genre. The real thing that changes what a genres sounds like is pretty much everything apart from the actual notes you choose.

For death metal what makes it is the speed, the chaotic nature of the riffs, changing up the structure, the vocals, the drums and so on. If you want to learn to play DM then the best way to go about it is to learn a load of DM songs and look at how they work.

For shred... it's not even a genre really and all the shredders I can think of use tonnes of different scales as the situation dictates they need to use.

Best advice I can give you is: learn as much theory as you can get your head around.
