There is any other good metal guitars brand other than Ibanez, ESP, Schecter, B.C. Rich, Jackson, Dean, Moser or Gibson/Epiphone (don't say Fender xD)?

Why not Fender? Jim Root Tele/Strat much? You can also argue that Fender makes great metal guitars because Fender owns Jackson and Charvel.

There is also Kramer, Daemoness, Suhr, Musicman, Mayones, RAN, Ken Lawrence etc.

There is an almost countless number of brands that make metal guitars, and a lot of them are custom shops.

Washburn, Musicman, Cort?
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

If we're talking customs as well, there's Carvin, Conklin, Strandberg, Ran, MAYONES.

Frankly, Mayoneses are some of the best guitars I've ever played.

KxK and Gary Kramer comes to mind. I don't really like Jackson so much because they are pretty mediocre especially in today's market where they are destroyed by pretty much everybody.

Cort EVL and VX serie and Kramer (though their metal guitars seem to be out of stock every fricking where.) are only ones that come to mind.

*edit* Oh, and Fernandes has some badass looking V guitars.

If you don't mind used there are several that are no longer in business, like Hamer and Robin. There's also Blaze guitars. Buddy collaborated with Vivian Campbell to make the guitar that the Kramer Nightswan was based on, and still produces them. Same with the guitar that Dean Razorback is based on.

The ones I came in to mention have been mentioned. And T00DEEPBLUE spoke the truth already...

But others include, but are not limited to: Bowes, Bulletpoof, Malden, FGN, GMW, Killer, Equilibrium, JET, Jaden Rose, Jon Kammerer, KWG, Decibel, Loud, Oktober, Spear, Radix, Stormshadow, Minarik, Tregan...

The list REALLY does go on a bit.

There is no metal guitar unless it is actually made from metal. Other then that you can play any style of music on any guitar.
