The simple answer is, in my opinion, Peavey.
The long answer is more details please. Examples of Bands you want play, Budget- we could suggest alternatives etc.
Gear:
Fender American Tele (Lefty)
Squier Affinity Strat (Lefty)
Boss DS-1
EHX Small Clone
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe
Laney LG12
Danelectro FAB Flanger (Rubbish)

Vypyr, though the Valvetronix can do metal too, it doesn't have a lot of good options in that department. VT has more headroom though if you plan on practicing with your band.

Gut reaction is obviously the Vypyr, but a lot of people keep claiming that the Mustangs do metal just as good or better. I've never tried one (or even seen one, actually), so I can't comment on how true that is.

i had a vypyr 75 and hated it. got rid of it 6 months after buying it. yes, the mustang does do metal technically. same as i posted on another persons forum i will post here.

difference between the metal g-dec 3 and standard g-dec 3 = paint
difference between g-dec 3 and mustang = more onboard presets.
as soon as they are plugged into a computer, there is NO DIFFERENCE

so if u get the mustang and use the fender FUSE software, u can get any tone u want as well as tuners, backing tracks, lessons, metronomes... etc.

if u intend on gigging i'd say wait a while longer and get something that isnt a modeling amp. they are really made for home prcatice. one interesting thing that i leanred from my guitar teacher yesterday is that for alot of his live performances, he doesnt even use an amp. he uses amplitube and goes right from his laptop into the PA system. and he says that it sounds great.

so that may be another option for u

Yeah because you can end a thread with making an opinionated response as to what amp does a certain genre better than another. You make me LAUGH! However I do agree that the Vypyr is the best of what you have suggested but there are plenty of better amps out there.

If you want to go with that argument, then your post is quite hypocritical isn't it?

My posts states my opinion of which would be the end-of-discussion opinion. Doesn't mean its right or wrong, just means that that's my take on the best amp among the 3.

Hell yeah, I can recommend a Dual Rec, that would blow the Vypyr out of the water, but if he doesn't have the money, then the recommendation is retarded. I'm being helpful in selecting one amp among the 3 he is considering. I don't see you making any constructive suggestions, hypocrite.

Grow up, hypocrite. The world doesn't revolve around your perception of how it should work.

My vote's for the peavey no contest. Vox is second though. I've never used the fender but all the ones I have played left a bad taste in my mouth, absolutely cannot comment on this one though. If you can play them all at a music store somewhere that's probably the best way to go for personally you. Pick the one that you like the sound of the best.
