Between those 2, the C30.

The C30's quite vintage voiced, and though it CAN do heavy rock and metal, it doesn't do them particularly well. These would all do better imo-

If you stretch your price range a bit, you could get stuff like a Krank Rev Jr., Mesa F30, or maybe a used ENGL if you look hard enough.

People say good things about the Crate V50 for hard rock/metal. Also, a few people have said ValveKings get good tone once you "upgrade" them. Those are inside your budget and would be more than enough power. I would definitely test them all if I were you.

I've screwed with my VK for like a year and a half now. It's not worth it. Please don't get it. Well actually. You can buy my slightly customized messed around with better than standard VK for less than a New one,

the classic 30 is great but not for metal

You know what would be awsome? A phone that doubled as a fleshlight that recharged power through kinetic motion.
