Slayer is the only band whose tone you can even get close to with that pedal (and even then, it's a big fail). Those other bands use much lighter gain and power tube distortion and the metalzone,...

If you're pretty happy with the guitar, then I suggest going ahead and getting a new amp. The amp actually has a lot more to do with getting good tone, unless the guitar is a pile of rubbish and...

They (at least the 6505+) does sound better with an OD pedal between the guitar and amp input. You adjust the pedal so its gain is turned all the way down and the level is turned all the way up. ...
