If you want to play metal, you want to get some two plies for sure, that will take a lot of the ring out, but leave some of it in like you said.
For the toms, you could go with some Evans G2 coated, which will give it plenty of low end and punch.
You could also go with some Remo's Ebony Suede Emperors or just plain Ebony Emperors.
Since your set is maple, it will already have a lower and warmer tone, so you could go with just some Remo Pinstripes which is what I have on mine right now and I play some metal.
As for the snare, you could go with A Remo Controlled Sound coated.
It has a powerdot for increased strength and ring reduction.
I'm sure Evans has a comparable head, but I'm not as familiar with Evans heads.
Either way, the maple shells will do most of the warming up of the tone for you.
Just tune the heads you get right past the wrinkles, making the resonant heads a slight bit tighter than than the batter, an you'll be rocking in no time.

I'd agree with the Remo Pinstripes on toms (coated for more attack, clear for a rounder tone), and the Remo Controlled Sound on the snare. Fat, fat, fat snare sound out of that bad boy.

I'm a huge fan of the Evans EQ3 on both sides of the bass drum. Nothing else inside. Tune everything up only as much as necessary to make them sing (you'll know).

What's the point of having a great sounding head if every time you look at it you say, "MAN, my kit is ugly with those heads"? You should be 100% in love with your kit- look, feel, and sound.
