hi guys can you give me an idea of which solid state or tube amp to get if i want to get a good sound out of these active pickups. Please give me two opinions: 1 for ss and 1 for tube!

In my opinion with a budget like that there's not much point in looking at a solid state...While there are some great SS amps out there, withe the kind of music you want to play, I can't really think of any that would compete with a similarly priced tube amp in that range.

We could recommend amps all day but not find something that is available in your country. What are some middle of the line valve amps that you can get in your country for under 2K? that would help us know what you have available and guide our recommendations.

If you're getting actives then a solid state amp isn't a verry good idea... Actives are made to push tube amps, so get a tube amp. One of the Marshall JCM 2000 DSLs sounds good for you I think.

What I would do is go to your local guitar center, find a guitar with EMG's and play around with some stacks. There are tons of Marshall stacks that give a great metal and blues tone for 1-2k it shouldn't be hard to find something you love.

Marshall JVM's actually sound very nice with EMG's. You can get a 50 watt, 2 channel head or combo for about $1400.

Most Marshall's (well, pretty much just JCM's and JVM's) get great metal tones when you are using active pickups.
