My friend recently told me that instead of buying a mediocre cabinet and head, I should just buy a good head, and use it with my friend's Marshall MusicMan cabinet. He said as long as I have a good head, even if the cabinet isn't great it should sound good. Basically he said the head gave most of the tone, and its more important than the cabinet. Is this true?

If it is, how much would a good head be? My price range is around 1000 at the most. I play Protest the Hero, Bring Me The Horizon, Ambiin The Rust (not sure if you've ever heard of these guys) type music, so I'd like a metal sounding amp. Right now I have a Digitech DF-7 Distortion Factory distortion pedal.

EDIT: OH and Between the Buried and Me is a huge influence on me too. I love their sound.
