I am looking for some scales that are used less often, if you know what I mean.

Like some of those dark ones Satch uses on Engines of Creation.

Scales that wouldnt be used commonly you know?

The persian scale is my personal favorite at the moment. If used right, it can be darker than shit. Check out Lamb of God's Ashes of the Wake album, quite a few songs were written using the persian scale or something similar (Laid to Rest, Ashes of the Wake, Omerta).

None diatonic scales, diminished, wholetone, parallel scales etc. Also remember that you can combine scales for different effects - some "outside" notes add a colour. Just listen to Allan Holdsworth to realise how much us mere mortals suck.
Quest for "the tone": pending.

why dont you try some bebop minor, or even the tritone scale (such a dark one) or just try some stuff your own, flatten the fifth in any scale you want

I hope that we could get some real metal out there. I guess A7X a start...
But nu metal does have its moments like Slipknot Mushroomhead and Korn.
