Well what kind of amp do you have?

Let the amp do most of the work if its decent, just get a pedal of sorts to boost the signal to give any extra kick if you need it for a solo (an EQ pedal, an overdrive pedal, a booster...even a wah wah sometimes)
other than that turn on a bit of delay/reverb

i alternate between my spider II 75 watt and my dads mesa boogie Duel Recto


to hell with the spider

for the recto: a tubescreamer or a maxon OD (metal core bands LOVE these)

However if you intend on boosting your spider aswell, an eq pedal is your best bet.
TEEP!!! Oiiiiiiieeeeeeeyyy!!!!!!

For the Spider I agree with neon. The only thing to help you there would be an eq. I just bought a berhringer eq for about 20 bucks and it sounds just as good as some higher end boss and mxr eqs. I know alot of metal bands abuse tubescreamers like mad. I like the MXR wylde overdrive even though your paying a little bit for the name, but its really versitle in sound. Its a great booster and can give you a nice classic rockish crunch and smooth lead sound when put in front of a clean channel.

crank your mids and get a SD-1


Also I'm loving the Bad Monkey for an overdrive.
