Metal-Muff maybe? With the top boost obviously. If you dial in some mid-gain settings on a metal muff it will do rock and punk no problem, and just boost the mids, add some bass and crank the gain a bit more and you're set for metal. And with the top boost you'll have no problem being heard with solo's

An older BOSS Heavy Metal pedal is what you really need.

this is not a criticism on your amp because the cubes are good amps imo. But if you run any distortion pedal into a digital amp, it will sound digital because it is being put through the A/D and D/A converters in the amp which break the sound up into little chunks to produce that digital sound no matter what you do.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

We heard you the first time.

To be honest TS, it'd be a waste of money buying a distortion pedal.

more pedals are not the answer. The amp has a digital sound. you won't get rid of the digital sound by putting pedals in front of it. it doesn't work like that.
