gives a basic overview of what each wood does.
Mahogany gives a warm tone, while alder gives a neutral tone that is neither warm or bright. I do know that my friends $1000 Fender Strat is made of alder, but that other great guitars are made of mahogany, so it boils down to preference.

Gibson uses a lot of mahogany, and Fender uses mainly Alder.

then the mahogany one will do your style better

but you can get a used gibson sg standard for that price. and it will do these heavier tones better
