Especially for fans of Tool, APC, Avant-Garde, Ambient music, rock instrumentals, and fans of music in general. Will not disappoint.
No - great amp + Fulltone OCD = pwnage. Lol, probably not what he wanted to hear though. Basically there are not many great distortion pedals, and all the sounds from your favorite metal albums are achieved by a great amp with possibly a boost - so if you have the money get an amp. If you don't have the money but already a tube amp, get a booster pedal. If neither are an option, I personally prefer the EHX Metal Muff - its the only "metal" pedal I have heard that didn't sound like utter trash.
