Right now i have a spider III, i play lots of metal, metalcore, death metal etc, i was wondering if anyone has used one of the new valvetronix xl's, the metal versions of the normal vt's. how much of a step up from the spider would this be?

Ah yes, you have a condition that many guys live with and are affected by everyday. It's called a penis.

IMO, the original VT's clean channel with a good distortion pedal running through it is far better than the standard distortion you'll get out of the XL's settings.
