Totally. Hell, you can get a used MkIV and something else for the price of some of the amps you listed.

Lamb of God used MkIVs for quite a few albums (early through sacrament).
From all of your other threads I believe you are in Germany.

What about the Engl Savage or Invader 2?

I'd probably start my search there and rule them out.
Ibanez RG1570 Prestige
Jackson Kelly KE3 - MIJ (Distortion/Jazz)
Jackson DKMGT Dinky (EMG 81/85)
ESP E-II Eclipse Custom (JB/'59)
ESP LTD EC-1001FR (EMG 81/60)
Fender MIM Strat

Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster 212
Laney IronHeart IRT-Studio
Peavey Vypyr 30
Peavey ReValver Amp Sims
TOOOO many T.C. Electronic Pedals. . .

To get any good advice out of me I'd need to know where you live, what your budget is, what cab you plan on using and whether or not you can go used.

Otherwise, I'd just be throwing things around.

Germany I know Mesa is pretty expensive.. Budget isnt limited actually but if possible ill stay under 2000€ for the amp alone. Id like a completly new amp, not used. Cab is Orange (V30

since you live in germany, i would skip on mesa, i hear that they are stupid expensive there.

i am sure you could find a nice Engl or Diezel or something there that would suit you. especially becuase they are probably cheaper then they are in the US, and make great stuff.

orange may be worth looking into too, i know you did not list them, and i don't think any of those bands used them, but they get a helluva nice metal tone. i have a rockerverb 50 mk1, and the fucking thing is a beast.

at your budget you may find a bogner, however i don't know how much they go for you over there though.
