of all of those, i would say your best bet by a long shot is the Jet City, although you would need a boost for metal (BBE green screamer ~$60).

i am not a bugera fan, but i havent tried the 55.

i thing the HT -5 is overrated. i played it and wasn't that impressed. also it gets hated on for having some SS components.

I thought the blackstar sounded good from my limited experience. If you turned the gain up too much it got too compressed, but it would make a good, if overpriced, practice amp.

Try the jet city or look used. There is a laney pro tube on ebay that ends tomorrow fo cheap. Check it out. Now.

Also, Peavey Windsor and Carvin MTS are worth looking at.
Washburn HM Idol w/ SD JB in bridge > Ibanez Weeping Demon > Korg Pitchblack > Digitech Bad Monkey > Boss NS-2 > Boss DD-6 > Egnater Renegade > Splawn 2x12 w/ Weber Sig12Bs

You could try Bugera 6260 and 6262. I'm not sure if they'd be outside your budget though.
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser Fr
Peavey 6505+ 112

while that may fit his metal, it wouldn't be able to do any of his other music decently.

it sounded decent to me, but this i agree with you here "good, if overpriced, practice amp"

it is much more of practice amp quality, than of gigable quality, IMO. i think the Jet City would do your pretty much everything you are looking to get, and metal would be decent with a boost. also the blackstar's 5 watts, wouldn't be enough to gig with at all, while you may be able to gig with the JCA's 20 watts without mic'ing. it just depends how good the rest of your band is.

i would also recommend looking for a used egnater tweaker, i have one and it is very flexable, and sounds pretty damn good.

For his purposes, if you're gonna give him a different Bugera beyond the V55 to look at, you might want to say the 333/333XL.

Holy crap, so it was. What a goofy bump.
