Hey,
I'm considering to buy the Blackstar HT-5 Head to play gigs, jam with band and practice at home etc.
Is the HT-5 powerful enough to handle it?
Does it suit my playing style etc?

I also need a 2x12 speaker cabinet, but I don't know which one. Perhaps I could get some help.

I play rock, metal(core), experimental, progressive etc.

Bands like: The Fall Of Troy, Billy Talent, Rage Against The Machine, We Are The Romans.

I live in Holland.

Ty.

If you are going to be playing at venues with a decent PA system, then the HT-5 will be loud enough. It is great for everything else.
A metal band?
Gear:
A Guitar with an LFR > Korg Pitchblack > Behringer EQ > Hardwire CM-2 Overdrive Boss SD-1 > Hardwire CR-7 Chorus>
Orange Tiny Terror >
LzR Engineering 212 cab

My other amp can run Crysis

You can't play gigs with it unless you mic it, and you would need an OD or Distortion pedal for Metalcore

I'm gonna need specific instructions again on how to properly dance with my pants on my head.

First you put your pants on your head.
Second you dance.
Third you wipe off all the pussy.

you don't even have to mic it You can line out directly to the PA.

Sounds bad if you ask me though
If video games make you violent, does monopoly make you a millionaire?

^it sounds good going through my Edirol USB interface and into my sequencer. Should sound ok. Wouldn't hurt to try.
