Unless you look into boutique pedals, which won't be that different, no. Any digitech or boss blues pedal will do fine.

Yea, but with a price range that high you could get a tube pedal.
Best pedal I would recommend for you is an Xotic BB Preamp, or maybe the newer BB Plus models. Some of the best distortion I've ever heard. I don't know how it could handle "screaming metal" though. What do you mean by screaming metal? Like death metal? Or just a really high gain solo tone?

Which pedal? You mean the Xotic?
I would also recommend an Ibanez Tube King.
That should give you bluesy tone and scream at the same time.

Yea, you'd probably like the Ibanez way more. Seems more suitable for your needs.

what about a boss gt-8 or like a KORG AX3000G

Well, those are multi-effects pedals. They can pretty much do anything, but they don't necessarily sound all too good. If you want better sound then you should stick with just the distortion pedal. Unless you get something like a VOX Tonelab or a ZOOM G7 or G9. They are multi-effects pedals with tubes in them.
