my distortion pedal is digitech metal master, and my wah medal is a rogue. the distortion pedal kicks ass but the wah pedal kinda sucks
try and find the rig of those bands and see what they use
i think they're both on www.guitargeek.com
just search for the band and it will give you the guitarrists in the band and you can see their equipment for on stage. its a bit out of date now i think.
i think metallica just go straight to the mesa boogie amps or something, at least for rhythm.
they use some line 6 stuff too i think, the delay pedals not pod or anything.
If you want to play many different styles (not just varying degrees of Metal) then consider investing in a muliti-fx. There are plenty of low cost, decent beginner multi-fx units (many of them not costing much more than a single Boss stompbox), and they'll encourage you to play more and develop your own sound.

EDIT: ZOOM and Digitech products are well reputed, I'd recommend trying out a couple of their models at your local guitar store.

thanks alot guys, i searched www.guitarfreek.com and there wasnt any metallica or killswitch! my internets prbly just ****in up.

im currently tryin to learn master of puppets by mettalica, but i cant my distortion to that low metal sound. I have a pedal, a Behringer ultra distortion UD100, but its got too much of a high pitch for the music i try to play. I am just playin incorrectly or is this pedal not suited for this type of music?

I just checked out the metal master from digitech.... i think thats the pedal for me lol, thanks for ur reply
