Hi ya, it been a few years since I've used to forum and even then I was very new, so bare with me please. Im looking to start playing again after a few years with little to no direction(in music or life). Im basically looking to combine; Bolt Throwers raw angry energy, with the thick grooves and generally bass driven rhythm of Eyehategod or Buzzoven, the walls of noise and occasionally maybe even the EXTREME aggression of Northern European black metal and the spacey, psychedelic drug fueled sounds of Hawkwind. Probably nothing new really i know but it's more just for something to do. Over the last few years I've made many stupid decisions that have left me almost gearless. My rig currently consists of a cheap Jackson and a Peevy Bandit 300 with few effects. I plan to change all this and start from ground up. Any suggestions would be nice. Id like to mainly focus on effects pedals but any rig ideas would be appreciated.

Other influences consist of traditional doom, progessive Rock/metal, thrash, pyschedelic rock(obviously), NWOBHM, stoner Rock/metal, drone, epic doom metal, and a touch of weedie drum and bass

Any suggestion? I need something that obviously has a lot of bass sound. Honestly I REALLY want a Sunn, cliche stoner metal shit I know, but I love the tone.

as far as a budget, I wouldn't want to spend more then 2k to 2.25k on an amp and new guitar paid for by my tax returns and a bit of saving. The rest is more of any on going thing so really budget on effects, as long as it's slightly resonable and worth the cost, doesn't really matter.
Im from Kentucky, not the sticks or the mountains tho lol. I live in a "major" city of this pathetic state

Id never actually heard of the echoplex. Really cool, though the tape part seems like it would be fragile or likely to have problems that would end up costing me a lot of money. Is the a wrong assumption?

well an actual echoplex would cost you a fortune to begin with. there are several pedals out there that recreate the sound of an echoplex without using tape (and 1 or 2 that do). personally I use a Lovepedal Gen5 delay for this purpose.

Big muff or tonebender for fuzz should get you in the stoner ballpark, especially if you run them into an Orange OR100 or rockerverb.

If you want the echoplex sound, and aren't willing to part with a leg or kidney, the Catalinbread Belle Epoch and Strymon Flint are great for that kind of delay.

Lots of Muff-inspired fuzzes out there that offer more toneshaping control. Lots of excellent echo pedals, too.

Orange amp is a no-brainer, though.

Would you recommend the Lovepedal Gen5?

well I think it's a good delay which is why I bought it. it doesn't sound exactly like an echoplex but it's good enough (especially for the price.) it has a cool modulation feature that can make some pretty warped sounding delayed notes which you may find very useful.
