my god that is an open ended question. Since 95% of people here seem to be metal heads they will probably tell you Peavey amps suck. I love them, and in fact just bought a Valveking. I play all kinds of music, including metal.

^ You are aware that the 5150/6505 series are made by peavey, they serve as the industry standard in metal tones.

Ive never had a chance to play any of the peavey guitars, but their amps are pretty awesome, regardless of genre. I was playing some fusion material through a classic 50 and it held up pretty good with an OD.

My first guitar was a Peavey Raptor EXP and it was a great starter guitar. Valvekings are dope, so are the 5150/6505's...

Amps are nice, basses are nice, but I've never played a guitar of theirs, so I couldn't comment. The guitars are likely as good as the basses, though, which says enough.

sorry, I was aware but arent those expensive amps? My admittedly limited time on this site has led me to believe if you are looking at a Peavey amp under $600 people seem to hate them (again, its hard telling what the OP is looking for)

if you want it to sound really dirty just rub some dirt on your amp...

Under $600 for peavey is most of the Vypyr series which have pretty much taken up the role of default starter amps for metal alongside the Roland Cubes, to my understanding.
