I'd say Peavey 6505's or 5150's are good, cause that's what most of the melodeath bands use (or have used at some point).

You could also check out Randall V2's and T2's.
You shall listen to Kamelot.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

I use a 6505+ for my tone
My band play epic-progressive-modern-melodic-death-war-metal so I guess that's pretty close
ohai little sig.

I use a 6505 with a boost and 7 band EQ and have a really good melodeath tone IMO, really thick and it cuts very well, though it isn't fizzy and no switching other than to the neck pickup for leads is needed, so +1 to the 6505/5150.

im not sure about now, but I know that his best tones came out of a lee jackson preamp running thru a VHT (later ENGL) poweramp.

Also at TS:

ENGL, Koch, and VHT are pristine for melodeath. all sound a million times better than 6505 imo
