Atreyu and Avenged Sevenfold have a few sweep picking riffs that actually are a bit melodic.

I'd say Serrana is what you're looking for. By Becker.

Serrana by Jason Becker.

Jason Becker Serrana for sweep picking
Yngwie Malmsteen - Blitzkrieg (how can anyone forget that one?) for alternate picking
Anything by Joe for Legato

Since when have Metallica had sweeps and arpeggios?


LOL. Well I seem to recall a 3 string sweep in the solo in Seek and Destroy and a lot of that is alternate picked in any case. But I agree, Metallica are not the band you go to when in search for anything shred.

You can also try:

Sweeping from Heaven (Youtube it) - JerryC (not sure if you can get tabs).
Cross (also Youtube it) - Oziel Zinho
10-Hour workout - Steve Vai

Jason Becker-Altitudes, Serrana

The solo in Blitzkreig is insane. I mean, I listen to a lot of shred, but that solo is incredibly fast, one of his fastest.

Well, Leper Messiah has a pretty simple sweeping passage, but yeah, 'Tallica is not the band to look into for sweeping.

In fact, his fastest. I can't remember 18nps or something like that. It's in the Shred Forum (fastest guitarist update thread). If you want fast, listen to Snake Eyes by Racer X - Holy Fuck. Check it out.

EDIT: Blitzkrieg is 17.3 but it's still unconfirmed. It's definitely up there of the fastest all time tracks.
