They said METAL.

Try Breaking the Law by Judas Priest, probably one of the easiest out there.

for whom the bell tolls and the first half of seek and destroy are easy if you like metallica, symphony of destruction and trust other than the solos are easy by megadeth and the serpentine offering if you are a black metal fan

Shouldnt have said the unspoken words of MG in the pit. Now look at what ya dun.

Maiden never fails. Most songs have riffs, harmonies, interludes and solos making it diverse and challenging, even for experienced guitarists. Not all the songs will provide the biggest challenges, but a lot of them are worth checking out. Rainmaker or Afraid to shoot strangers are both pretty nice. If Maiden isn't your thing, then you could check out Iced Earth which is most of the time not too technical, but very rhythmic and heavy.

Try "Rumors of War" by High on Fire
its in drop c but its a fun easy tune

Apart from the solos, some slayer stuff is pretty easy ... like Raining blood, South Of Heaven or Dead Skin Mask.

The rhythms yes but the solos not even close to easy
a few others could be all of living after midnight, paranoid and iron man and holy diver and rainbow in the dark other than the solos

You can try some Accept. They do those moladic scales.
Fast as a shark...yeah thats when the double base drums started.lol

Maybe some Riot....they did a remake of
Racing with the devil on a spanish highways. It sounds pretty cool

The troper or hollowed be thy name is fun to play

if ur a newer metal fan try Hand of Blood by bullet for my valentine, or for i trickier one "like light to flies" by trivium. but if your more of an older metal fan try number of the beast by iron maiden, or thunderstruck if your an ok tapper and if you consider AC DC metal

You didn't tell us what your skill was. Could you elaborate on what you can play/what techniques you're decent at/what techniques you need lots of work on?

Just as a recommendation for good rhythm practice and solos that aren't overly difficult, try "Powerslave" by Iron Maiden or "You've Got Another Thing Coming" by Judas Priest.
