Study the kind of metal you like by learning theory and looking at the tabs/music there is available out there.

Once you get that it's just the physical process you need to get under your fingers and that's no different from any other kind of learning; read the stickies.

Speed Mechanics for Lead Guitar by Troy Stetina is a good one. It's a kinda advanced so might not be the best thing to start off with though. He does have some other books aimed at people starting; I haven't read them, but I'd guess they're good.
