I'm pretty sure this is the right forum for this, as it has to do with songwriting,
so here goes

I would like some help in finding Chord structures that sound generally 'metal'

What are some chord formations you find useful in writing metal music?

Examples:
These are my favorite three in writing metal songs
(Not necessarily the notes, but the way it's formed)
And these are just what I call them as I do not know specific musical lingo

The "Euro-metal" sounding Chord
G---------------------------------------
D--------3--------5---------7-----------
A--------5--------7---------9-----------
D----------------------------------------

The "metal chorus" chord
G----5-------7---------9-----------------
D----5-------7---------9--------------
A----3-------5---------7--------------
D----3-------5---------7-----------------

And the "metal-lead chorus" chord
G--12------9---------7--------------------
D---X------X---------X--------------------
A--10-----7---------5------------------------
D------------------------------------------
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

Sorry, but its not the right forum. S&L is mainly for lyrics, while songwriting is discussed in the S&L tecniques section. Read the rules before you post there, so that you can make sure.
