I'd go with a Marshall if you really want to be heard.
Studies have shown that 92% of guitar players are close-minded. Copy this into your signature if you're part of the 8% who enjoy rap.

Well, Lamb of God uses Mesa Mark IVs. I'm not sure about Job For a Cowboy, but they seem like Peavey 5150 users to me Who knows.

I wouldn't go with anything Marshall for those styles or Randall really unless your on a budget, then the RG50TC might be good for ya.

"Marshall and Mesa and Randall" are all voiced completely differently. You need to play all of these amplifiers before buying one.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

Im lookin in a price from maybe 300-600


Keep saving. You're not going to find a Mesa or Marshall in that price range, with the possible exception of a used JCM800/900 if you're very lucky.

No you wouldn't find Mesa/Boogies or Marshalls in that price range. You will find a Randall RG50TC in that range though and with proper EQing and maybe even further EQing with a pedal, it would be perfect for those aforementioned bands.

If you like solid state amps, try the Fender Metal Head. Those things have gain like no other solid state amp I've ever heard, and they behave similar to tube (I own one). If you like tube, get an Engl Powerball or Fireball. They're expensive, but worth saving for. The gain on three crushes a Mesa Dual Rectifier on 5. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't heard it for myself.
