a few great ways to make heavy music is to use diminished 5th's. it makes the music incredibly dark and creates tension. also it helps to add ALOT of distortion into the sound. there are a few scales out there that you can use to create heavy music. here is a heavy scale that i use in many of my songs in drop c: (but you can still use drop d)


C|-------------------0-1-3--
G|---------0-1-2-3-4--------
C|-0-1-3-4------------------


other than that, just experiment and you'll be able to come up with some pretty heavy riffs.
