These techniques are definitely used in metal often. Alexi Laiho loves diminished sweeps. Steve Vai has used all 7 modes in his recordings (and some other odd ones, I'm sure). Some bands aren't even aware of what they're doing, but they still use odd modes (Opeth, anybody?). And holy shit... just listen to Tool. Mastodon is another band that fucks with weird keys in their writing (but not as much as Tool, mind you). And if you're asking about relative keys used in metal, I'm quite sure this is very common.

If you have any other questions, I'm taking my second semester of Harmony class in college... and although its kicking my ass I'm still learning quite a lot about all these concepts.
