All personal preference. Thunderverb is thicker, bassier, and sludgier. Rockerverb is less "girthy" and tighter.

Wrong, wrong, wrong. I have a Diezel VH4 and a rockerverb 100, and i can assure you that the RV really can do metal pretty well. Besides that, Slipknot plays on rockerverbs (sounds pretty metal to me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wws7mnMewPw).
Rockerverb, because it's tighter.

What kind of metal is it?

The RV 50 I had needed a bit of a boost to play metal, but I assume you'll be using different guitars to me. Plus I've not played the new ones so I don't know how they stack up. The RV100 can do metal for days.

You suck. .

Anyways, neither Orange. They're great for stoner/sludge metal, but that's about it.

Right, because an amp can only be good if it gets that Black Dahlia Murder tone

I don't know what kind of metal you're talking about but other than Slipknot I know that Underoath also uses Orange as well as a few other acts. Google it. It is true though that the RV and TV may not be your best choices if you're looking for the SUPER high gain stuff. Orange gives you the classic British tone which, imho, sounds better than Marshall unless you're going top shelf ($2000+). Try them out if possible, but I'd also keep an eye out for the more traditional "metal amps" like Mesa and Peavey.

Hmm... well honestly they both can DO metal, but the end tone is gonna result on your fingers when it comes to metal out of those amps (andyour pick attack). I'd say you'd be better off with a Mesa rectifier/peavey xxx/6505.

dude i've tried oranges before. it's just too fizzy dark and idk. it's just totally unusable tone to me. but hey, maybe somebody else finds that acquirable.

peavy 6505, some soldanos, a mesa rectifier, engl's, i think VHT/freyettes are in that range
hell even a krank would be better than an orange

you'd be better off taking a grand an buying the peavy and spending another grand on gear or anything guitar or whatever you want

2 grand for an amp that can make you sound like paramore and underoath? yeah no thanks

I've heard stupid good tone from Kranks. Just takes awhile to dial it in.

Mastodon use Orange, and so does Down... but they don't play metal... and yeah I use a rockerverb 100 and I play metal and I WAY prefer it over my mates ENGL... suppose it's personal preference though.

Between the two I'd take the Rockerverb, it's more "in your face"/ punchy !!! ^^

Matter of opinion, but I totally agree with your assessment.

I'm not a terribly big fan of how dark they are either.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.
