What is your idea of Metal\Hard Rock, some of the bands you want to play, what is your budget.

You can get a good cab from Avatar or Craigslist. The cab needs to match the ohms selection that is on the back of your amp, so if you buy a 16ohm cab, you need to make sure your amp is capable of supporting 16. It is most common for amps to have a 3 way selector for ohms, so you should be alright. The job of a cab is to amplify the sound. Heads have no speaker and cannot be run without a cab.
