Okay, im looking at that amp. A few questions:
#1: Is it good for Technical/Melodic Death Metal and does it have a good clean tone??
#2: Will EMG 81 (Bridge) and 85 (Neck) go well with it?
#3: Is it loud enough to gig???
#4: Will it sound any different then the half-stack versoin with an Engl cab???

well IMO a 2x12 or 4x12 sounds more full and a little more bassy (if closed back) So if you want a shiz load of bass response you should probably go with that.

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

You want a screamer for teh metal, or a fireball if you can afford one. The screamer is more vesatile but the fireball is better for metal (but it's pretty much all it can do...).

I would take a look at the bugera 6262, as it's pretty much a 5150/6505 but cheaper!

+1. try out the combo and then try the half stack, they are both plenty loud

It has more of a rock voicing, although there is a LOT of gain on tap.

That's a lot of booze. Frankly, I'm impressed. You're of a stronger timber than the average man, jimbob! Hail you.
