well it depends on how much you want to spend line 6 amps are very versatile indefinitely better than crate amps Marshall is good but can get expensive i personally have a line 6 for a practice amp gets really all around good sound. but if youve got the money get an Engl Powerball best amp around!!

Dang man, you can get yourself a real nice tube amp! (combo or used halfstack).

Don't leave mesa-boogie out of your selections, their dual rectifiers are REALLY what you're looking for imo, they give out alot of modern metal tones very well, as I hear. Also, I wouldn't really suggest marshall if most of what you're playing is modern metal and I'm not too sure about orange. Orange and Marshall are known very well for alot of hard rock and 80's metal types of genres.

Im not sure on your budget (can't be bothered doing a currency conversion) but perhaps a DSL 401? i'm sure they were used by Trivium, so that could be an option.

For the money you're talking you could get...

Marshall JCM800, 900, DSL, or TSL
Mesa MkIII, MkIV, Dual rec, maybe trip rec, maybe roadster
Laney GH50L, TT100L
Peavey 5150, 6505, JSX
Framus Cobra

Any of these will get you where you want to go, in style. Plus you should always buy used. ALWAYS.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

Ahaha, Buy a Krank. Those amps actually scare me a bit.

I say get a Krank Revolution.
However, do NOT get a Krank Krankenstein.
The Revolution is a really, really, good amp for balls to the wall distortion and the such.
The Krank Krankenstein is a really, really, good amp for making your guitar sound like someone farting into a tin can.

Okay, today I've tried an orange rocker 30 combo and it has to be one of the best amps I have EVER played!!!! I loved it sooo much, *creams*. Don't listen to the people who are opposed orange (even though it's an opinion) Definatley check it out. May not be sutied for modern day metal (unless if you got the right rig) but it sure does everything well!

I found it quite surpsing that it was actually really big and heavy...and attractive as well.

The dude who was testing it out on youtube. Sounded pretty chunky to me, but yeah, you CAN play metal on the amp.

You should look into Lany or ENGL's. I suggest you ask Dave_MC about that, he's all knowing about UK gear.

Black Sabbath ring a bell? Iommi used Oranges before switching to Laney.

Know what? After reading this thread you SHOULD get a Crate.
