i wouldn't think you'd mind it being distorted, weren't you just looking for a death metal guitarist for your band?

it's the MG, I had the same problem when I used solid state amps, the clean never sounds quite as pristine as it should, and the distortion loses all definition.

Yeah if the impedance is the same and your head's watts don't exceed the cab's watts.

However, it wouldn't do a good head any justice using those crappy stock marshall speakers in the MG cab.

They are Marshall speakers designed by Celestion... or maybe its the other way around. But anyway, just because something has a big companies name on it doesn't mean its gold - take your MG for example.

If you don't have the money to spend to get a new cab then yes it will work (if you're buying a new head to replace the MG - if you go combo then you have nothing to worry about). However it is a cheap cab (poorly constructed and poor quality speakers) and a good head with a cheap cab will result in you kicking yourself down the road for making that mistake.

Unless your playing a lot of gigs in front of a lot of people you dont really need a halfstack...

However i have heard a cranked up Marshall JCM800 and i thought it was fantastic. I dont know about death metal and black metal but it was pretty heavy for a british voiced amp.
If you can find one used i think it would be pretty good with an overdrive/distortion pedal for what you want.

I suppose you can use your MG cab until you can afford a better cab.

for cheap high gain, check out bugera amps. they sound great, but since they are so cheap to buy, their build quality is compromised in some places.
