I play mainly blues and some alternative/modern rock. I wanna try to branch of into jazz, metal, shred, and other similar styles. No country though because I'm actually not to fond of it even though I know some.

So UG what kind of songs/scales/modes/etc will help me achieve all this?

(I'm probably gonna focus on one at a time)

Metal uses the Fridgian mode a lot. I heard this from my guitar teacher and nearly every metal song that I showed him used it. I don't know too much else.

A style is so much more than its constituents. What you want to do is learn and understand as much theory as possible, and listen to as much of each style as possible while transcribing and studying material related to it, and you can answer your own question in a way that will benefit you far more than any info you could get from the members of this site.

Other then direct experience with the genre the best advice I can give you is music theory, as it is the same for every genre.

Theory is descriptive, not prescriptive.
