First step in drumming is learning to spellcheck and use punctuation

After that, 'metal drum beat' is a little vague. How skilled are you? What did you have in mind, exactly? Just any basic beat?

For the love of god buy a dictionary and a metronome. Put the metronome at 100 BPM. When you can play the "simple rock beat" that you "no" in perfect time bump it up to 110 BPM, and repeat until one day you are playing a simple rock beat at 240 BPM and guess what. You are now playing metal. Then move from quater notes, to eighth to sixteenth notes on the bass drum(s) starting slow and working your way up.

The speed at which you can play is irrelevant if you cannot play in time. The key is just to practice and listen. Listen to bands you like and attempt to duplicate what you hear. Obviously, at first you will not be able to do so, but with time you will find that you can master anything.

If you look at Metallica and Megadeth, and indeed other classic metal songs, they aren't often overly complicated, save for being fast, most of the time. Sometimes they'll throw in fancy drum fills, but for the most part, metal drums only consists of simple rhythms, at high speed, played aggressively. Of course, this depends on the genre, what are your influences, or otherwise bands you listen to?

Actually, that'd be punk, really...

TS, you are going to want to look up the skank beat, blast beat, and then also stock double bass beats.

Well you have to learn songs eventually, you won't be very good on the drums after all if you can't play songs...

Shit, my bad, I totally forgot to post all those grooves I was talking about! Sorry

Anyway, here.

The grooves from measures 1-9 are just regular double bass beats, which usually consists of a basic rock groove except with 16th note double bass added. Measures 11-13 are skank beats. 15-21 are blast beats.
