I'm about ot buy my first guitar, and i just needed some reassurance that these are decent guitars, if I wanted to play music by bands like Sonic Syndicate, Soilwork, Gwar, Lordi, In Flames, Rammstein, etc... my budget is around 150$, and I've been looking at one of these, http://www.guitarcenter.com/Ibanez-GRX20-Electric-Guitar-519417-i1150594.gc

or my friend's offering to sell me his Peavey Predator, his sk15B squier amp, and a soft guitar case for equal price
the question I have is, is whether i can play the music I like equally or better than the GRX20 on the Peaver Predator?

all advice is appreciated

If you could expand your budget a bit further, you could get this. (There's a black finish if you're not too fond of the natural wood style).
It should play the style you want pretty well.
