Theres no real thing as a "good" metal chord. I mean, sure theres some used more frequently than others (usually any power chord, to say the least), but sometimes others are slipped in...like Am (which I've seen used in an Opeth song). The fact of it all is it depends on what kind of mood your wanting to set, there are so many options and its not the greatest mindset to have if your just out to limit what chords can be used.

Anyways, you could take this structure for something to look into.

E 4
A 6
D 6
G x
B x
E x

as well as

E 4
A 4
D 6
G 6
B x
E x

Move that around on the fret board and you should have alot more to work with, in terms of the usual metal/hard rock type of sound. I use that structure pretty frequently. Also, don't mind just barring the fourth fret completely. Experiment.

Hope that helped a bit.

How do you define a "good metal chord"? Any power chords will work fine if you're just want to use lots of distortion.
