The 25th Anniversary isn't voiced too well for metal but can get it with a boost (and most likely with your EMGs as well). If you're mostly playing Metallica and other metal you may want to look elsewhere.

Are you willing to go used?

If you want to get new in the $500ish range then your bet for the metal/high-gain tones is Bugera. You might be able to get away with a Blackstar HT-5 and pedals also.

Wait. Just to clarify - is your budget 500 US dollars or 500 Euros? It does change things a bit.

That should work well for your needs. Try it out for a bit and see what you think.
