Hey guys.

I play lead guitar in a alternative rock/metal band.

We play music from such bands as Avenged Sevenfold, Guns N' Roses, Muse and Metallica and of course a few of our own songs.

I want a good distortion pedal but I just have no idea which one and I only have experience with multieffects units.

I was thinking of getting an Ibanez TS9DX for thickening the rhythm and a Boss Overdrive for leads but I need some other one just for the main sound if you know what I mean..

Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Visual Sound Jekyll and Hyde. It's 2 pedals in one, an overdrive (based on the Ibanez TS) and a distortion (based on a Boss distortion, I believe). And I'm pretty sure you can combine them.
And depending on the sound you're looking for, an amp upgrade might help later on. Try out the pedal before you buy, and make sure you try it with your amp, too.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"
