RedSox are better than you.
Assuming it's a distortion pedal you want, the Electro Harmonix Metal Muff is doing me really well. I can't say I've any experience with other pedals designed specifically for metal, but the Muff really is a class act. It's got a good range of heavy sounds, and a "top boost" that, used sparingly, is really nice for adding a bit of extra beef for a chorus or lead section.

The Unholy plays a Jackson Warrior X through a Metal Muff


perhaps you should try to put all your questions into one thread?
you've started like 15 threads in the last 24 hours

and also the "search button" i mentioned above isn't really a pedal, it's a magical tool that can find threads about relevant topics.

i'm not trying to be a dick, but:
best metal guitar
best wood for a metal guitar
best pedal for metal
what are humbuckers
can i put humbuckers into my guitar

could all be combined to something like:
help me with a decent metal setup, guys!

Wait, do you want a pedal to get metal gain or do you want to know what pedals get used along with the amps gain? There are a few pedals I'd say you should have regardless which overdrive pedal you use.

Noise Gate
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.
^ and the ever fun to play Wah and Whammy pedals And as long as it's not something cheap (ie under $100 min, maybe more), the metal box you get should be decent.
