I had a Digitech Metal Master in my younger days. It has all the distortion you could ever want and then some. They should have some at Guitar Center you can try for free. Beware, the sound can be a little trebly.

sorry...just the way you said "good metal like pantera and bring me the horizon" made me laugh that they are in the same sentence

I've never used it, but i would assume it would be good for a pantera tone

Boss DS-1 is pretty dece. Had a short time with the Boss MD-1, and that was a little too much for me. But great for teh major br00t4lz.

There are quite a few Boss pedals with distortion like Metalzone/metalcore/overdrive/distortion etc. + the mxr dimebag.

If you are looking for searing high-gain distortion, there are several to choose from. Boss has the Metal Zone and Metal Core. DigiTech has the Death Metal and the Hardwire TL-2 Metal Distortion. MXR just released the Fullbore Metal Distortion and it has received some good reviews. Blackstar's HT-DISTX high-gain distortion pedal is supposed to be outstanding. Krank has the Distortus Maximus.

People are going to tell you that all of these are terrible, while others will tell you that they are all great pedals, and everything in between. Since tone is a subjective thing (there is no doubt that all of these have tons of gain), you need to try as many as possible to decide for yourself which one(s) you like. The point is that if you are looking for a high-gain distortion pedal, you have a dizzying array of choices.

Happy hunting.

Don't leave out the ever-brütal Heavy Metal, it's important. It's the sound of Opeth's first two albums, and half of today's Scandinavian extreme metal bands.

Yes they were. It's funny because Pantera was thrash metal and Bring Me the Horizon is metal's effeminate cousin.

I would recommend a Behringer Ultra Metal if you are looking for something that sounds pretty good for dirt cheap.......I was HIGHLY skeptical myself until I saw this youtube video of a blind test btw it and a Boss Metal Zone.

It's about time someone else said something about The Tone King's videos besides me. This is actually from the 30 pedals in 30 days special he just got done with. You should be able to watch a lot of distortion pedal demos and shoot-outs through his youtube channel or by going directly to his website. He goes over the metal muff, the hardwire, the boss metal zone and metal core, the behringer, and the mxr. He covers the actual analog pedals themselves and the modeling pedals that are cheaper alternatives. You should really pay attention to the behringer line like this guy did because they have a wide variety for dirt cheap in comparison to brands like Boss for a metal sound. Good Luck!
