yeah im looking for a pedal to get a more metal sound, im using a fender frontman as an amp. i want the pedal to be able to do a ton of metal tones (iron maiden, megadeth, bodom, death, slayer). now ive looked at a few pedals and its come down to those two (metal zone and death metal), which one do you guys recommend?

I'd go with the Metal Zone. The Digitech Death Metal distortion that i tested wasn't too good. Of course...... there is no substitute for good amp distortion. So, maybe look into replacing that Fender with something with a bit more snarl.

any recommendations for a better amp?

Death Metal..yopu can diverse your sound alot and it gets way more deep and cuttty
:]
but i have the same amp so yeah

I agree, a new amp would be way better. For a decent practice amp, try either a Vox Valvetronix or a Roland Cube.

i would reccomend a peavy valveking as a base level distortion tube amp

Or you can go for a big Roland Cube or a Vox Valvetronix

sell the frontman and buy a cube 30.

Metal zone seems to be the popular choice, although defo go with a better amp if you can afford it (i wish i could lol). Ive just had a quick look online and the death metal seems quite abit cheaper than the metal zone though.

Neither. Really, get for example a digitech metal master of a boss ds-1 (a friend of mine has the metal master, and it plays like a dream). Much better and versatile. The metal master also models the 2 pedals that you listed.

But hold on - you're debating on whether or not to buy a bass or keep your house? That's pretty fucking hardcore!

Both are going to sound like crap into that Frontman. Invest in a nice amp rather then pedals that will only sound half as good as they normally would through a decent amp. Distortion pedals do not save you from a junky amp.

New amp.

But, if you really want a pedal, Metal Muff.

New amp if you can. However, both of those pedals are crap compared to getting either:

A) New Amp

or

B) Metal Muff

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
