You should probably look into some type of modelling amp like a Roland Cube or Peavy Vypyr. I have the cube and it is great for metal. I haven't played the Peavey yet but it is supposed to be really good for a modelling amp.

I agree with the vypyr idea lol. Thats only if you can play it loud where you live, because tube amps only sound good when they are turned up pretty loud. If not, get like a spider 3 combo or somethin but try it out first. Some people dont like the tone of spider and some love em

Well very few people on here like the tone of spider amps. I might suggest a peavey valveking with an overdrive pedal, since quite a few people use that combination on here.

That vypyr looks interesting too. Haven't seen much new gear recently, since I've been busy. Anyway, wait a little while, and you'll get lots more suggestions from people here.

ive played valve kings man, Hes lookin for a metal distortion. The valve kings just dont sound right to me man. Spiders have some good tones for a solid state if you mess with it enough

Spider III 75w, Peavey Vypyr 30-75w, Roland Cube.

Having played all three, the Vypyr is your best bet
