So, being a metal player(slipknot,slayer,maiden,trivium...) which one would suit me better?
#2
I would go for the Vypryr... the Vox is great... but I only use it for blues and classic rock, I dont think it would sound good for metal

Vypyr, by far. More suited to high gain than the VT's are.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Vypyr, no question
All of our days are numbered
I’ve taken some comfort
In knowing the wave has crested
Knowing I don’t have to be an exception

Yep, definately the Vypyr!

The only Vox that was really suited for metal is the XL series, which is a few years old but if you can find and test a used one, it has some nice high gain models.

Vypyr.

The Vox would definitely be a better buy. It has PLENTY of gain for metal, and the 12ax7 tube gives it a warmer sound. Just remember, you don't need a ton of gain for metal.

Vypyr. the Vox can reach metal, but it won't have as much gain as you would hope for without a pedal, which is how i reach my metal tones. I've got the 30 watt version, and sometimes I wished i went for the Vypyr instead, but with a pedal, you can easily acheive metal on the Vox.
