Default Drum heads for hard rock?

Hey guys, I am getting back into drumming after a long hiatus. Not to current on the newest types of drum heads that may be out and could use some help. Looking for the sound for snare, toms and bass. My primary interests are AC/DC, Metallica, Scorpions, Sabbath, Judas Priest (you get the point). I'm thinking coated 2 ply heads. I don't much care for the extended ringing especially on snare. My set will be Mapex Saturn IV I ordered just recently. Snare will be the Mapex Black Panther "Phat Bob". Going to be using Sabian AAX Xplosion cymbals. Also any recommendation on sticks would be useful. I use to use Vic Firth 7's with wood tear drop tip. I kinda want to stay away from the frosted heads since the insides of the toms are just as beautiful as the outside. I am only a hobbyist so I won't be recording or playing live shows. Thanks to all! Steve
