Hey guys, Im looking to buy some new guitar gear as an early christmas present for myself in a week, so I need some help deciding.
I already know what guitar I want, and thats an Ibanez RG 3570z. Might do the pole-piece-raise/lower-thingy mod and at some point a few months in the future, put in some BKPs.
But what I need to know is what amp to get and possibly a boost/OD/dist pedal. Bear in mind that I dont really know a lot about pedals.
Okey so here we go;

Budget: 700-800 Euro preferably.

Genres: Heavy- trash- and deathmetal. Disturbed, Trivium, COB, Shadows Fall are some bands I like off the top of my head.

It has to be new, used is not an option.

Its gonna be for home use, so I want a small combo amp. But not too small of course

Closest City doesnt matter as I will buy online, from Thomann.de probably.

Current gear doesnt really matter either, Ive got the cheapest guitar you could possibly find and a Roland Cube 15X

Extra info about the tone I want: I find it hard to explain, but I will try anyway. I like a lot of gain and a very aggressive sound, something to make my power chords and palm mutes really sound thundering, but at the same time I like each note in chords to ring out and sound articulate, a muddy sound is probably the worst thing for me, so no scooped mids which might seem a bit weird since I play metal, but thats just what I like. I also like quite a lot of bass, and good cleans are pretty important.
I like my sound to be, as I said, aggressive and rich and warm sounding, not shrill and cold. Disturbed's Stricken has that warm bassy sound, but gets a little noisy and muddy at points, whereas something like Panteras Cemetary Gates or Im Broken sound awesomely aggressive but is too cold sounding.
Bulb in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1X6likPKS8 describes the sound I like pretty well. He talks about what he calls "purring" at some point, and thats what I mean (note that the djenty tone that Periphery has in its songs is not what Im looking for, its the "purring").
Also this guys http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDE2VQzghp4 has a really awesome solo tone.
Lamb of God's - Laid to Rest and Shadows Fall's Redemption has a really great tone I think, along with a lot of songs from the artists I mentioned earlier.

Hope this gives you an idea of what I want so you can help me find something awesome to treat myself to, and thank you in advance.

ps. Ive heard a lot of good things about Engl, and since Im from Denmark I can probably get some good prices.

Horrible logic, and you limit yourself as far as selection.

I recommend a 6505+ 112 with a speaker swap, t00b swap, and a TS7 modded, and an ISP decimator

@Guitarbaddie: I told you, you wasnt gonna like my view on used gear. Also what tubes do you recomment swapping to and what TS7 mod are you refferring to ?

@Adamn124: No djenty sound, but something in between old school heavy and modern death metal... Or maybe Im just asking too much from an amp.

I don't care about your views on used gear, it's just stupid to limit yourself.

JJ toobz, ts808 mod for ts7. You can get the ts7 for $40, and mod it for $5, just need a new cap if I remember correctly.

Of course, if you're worried about warranty or something, you can just get the ts808 for $180.

Yeah, I'd say that is more up your alley.

Do you have some sound clips, or know where I can find some, of a 6505+ with JJ tubes and/or TS808 ? Id like to compare it to an Engl.
