your favorite scale for metal

hello everybody i am new to the forum and i was wondering what everybody's favorite metal scale was; I was reading some of the posts and have seen that people say metal is in minor or harmonic minor, but To make a cool riff I use the diminished scale.

yeah those three are pretty cool to metal...dimished is simply excellent....I also like the hungarian and the japanese scale...it gives some sort of strange feeling....//

Pentatonic Minor......despite what many guitarists think, this scale goes a long fucking way. It's also been used to death in many blues songs.

u take the notes from the scale...then make em a chord with em...dunno, the common 5th of a note...or 9th or wathever....for example if u have

A---7--8--10---

u can make

D---9-10-12--
A---7--8--10--

and just invent your rythm pattern...and mix em///

every time i try and write a song, it comes out like a rock song...
uhhhh, almost van halen style, but with a fast drum beat. i can't write
any black i don't think...
...so basically, all my songs are like something van halen would write,
with the evil throat of mine. and it sounds really weird.

i don't need a sclate to make a riff based on power chords. i just do what sounds good to me.
I guess using a scale to make a riff is to use only notes from a scale in particular. Is that it?
Where can i find all that scales?
Can i play all the notes in a scale with power chords?

hmmmm... i can see i really nedd to improve on my theory
