I've heard good things about this amp and plan to try one out today, but whats the deal when it comes to metal? How capable is it? Will it pull off Metallica/Testament (old school) style distortion without the aid of an OD pedal?

And for that matter how much better would it sound infront of one?

It will pull those tones off without a problem, it's one of my favorite tones it does. An OD would probably tighten things up a bit.
