Tapping, and speedy, diatonic scale runs. Pinch harmonics on the low strings and basic sweeping are good ones as well.

Alternate picking.

Thanks bud! What is sweeping?

Tapping and sweeping is advanced stuff. Worry about that later.

The absolute must for metal that should be learnt first is palm muting.

You can make just about anything sound cool with some creativity, palm muting, rythm, and distorion .

to get nasty metal tones, heaps of distortion, and tune to DADGBE or tune the whole guitar down to D for real low nasty metal sounds, standard is cool for metal too.

And then got shot.

You don't need to downtune, that's a complete fallacy. Palm muting is the first technique you need to learn, and as far as the stuff you can already play just look to evolve your style, playing the satuff you already know faster and more aggressively will be a great way to ease you into a more "metal" style.

What if you want a baritone sound? Then you downtune right?

You could just get thicket strings. I know some kids that play in Drop Ab or whatever and G standard that think they are playing dark and heavy crap, and I can out-evil them on an E standard guitar

^Yep, so true.

Basically palm muting, pinch harmonics, and tremelo picking are your starting points. Make sure you have good distortion as well.
