yo-
im looking to buy an amp
i play everything from blues to death metal
i have a vox bulldog distortion pedal which gives me the metal tone i want
as i have the pedal i dont see the point in getting a high-gain amp that couldnt produce a bluesy tone. so i started looking at amps like a finder blues junior (im on quite a tight budget) which give a blues tone that i really like. im just wondering if even with a good dist pedal an amp like this can produce a good metal tone or if there is some underlying voicing or somesuch thatll always hold it back.

Nah man

Its a great amp

It will give you a metal tone, just not a very good one.
A fender Blues junior just isn't voiced for metal.
If you want an amp which can cover both metal and blues, look at a peavey classic.
With your dist pedal, you SHOULD be able to get metal.
And, it's Fender, not finder :P.

+1.

I play one of the cleanest amps around (Fender Vibro Champ) and it can chug and scream with the big dogs when I slap my Metal Muff in front of it.

+1 to the Classic 30... It is definitely better voiced to handle gain. it should be fine...

My Blues Deluxe handles distortion pretty well. Right now i have an Ibanez Tubescreamer and it sounds great. I'm getting a distortion pedal soon (metal muff) and i'm confident it will sound fine.
