    Distortion doesnt seem to be something you wanna push an amp to, imo.at least not heavy heavy metal. Seems guys usually use an amp designed for that sound. Like a rectifier or blackstar. I guess what i mean is a jcm 800 does balls but not pantera heavy. Putting a pedal metalzone in front to push the tubes results in mud, and a hard od will just make it a heavier overdrive. And yes, i realize tons of early metal was done on marahalls, but if we're talking modern distortion sound, pushing tubes on an amp designed for hard rock or less is like putting tartar sauce on a big mac and hoping it tastes like a long john silver's specia. I would suggest setting your amp on clean and use an EHX metal muff paired with an eq. Some of the nastiest distortion achievable.
