You used black metal and scale in the same sentence LOL!

Na. Focus on minor stuff (Aeolian, Phrygian, etc) and dissonant and exotic stuff (diminished (locrian), whole tone, etc) oh and don't forget chromatics!

chromatic, until it gets to a solo part (if you actually put them in black metal) then go for something really weird sounding, or harmonic minor...I really like to whore that scale out.
