I'm looking for an amp with good distortion to play stuff like metallica, stratovarius, rammstein... Anyways I have an estimated $600. Any Ideas?

It's a fine line between clever and stupid.
Not bad for a solid state amp and the tones you're after. The new G3 series are supposed to be very good for what they do. I'm sure the cleans suffer a bit but if you don't use them...
