If you want something different, Ormsby are turning out some excellent guitars at the moment.

Their Hype GTR might be what you're looking for. There's a demo video on their page:

I would look at Ibanez Prestige, Carvin/Kiesel, or ESP custom guitars. Any of these make awesome metal guitars. They have a ton of different styles depending on what shapes you want.
My Gear:
LP Custom Sunburst
SG Reissue
1960 Clapton LP Reissue
Fender Strat '57 Reissue
And many more...
