I would definitely recommend this pedal for a Heavy Metal player and I greatly recommend this for Metallica players.
Trey
The ability to tweak the EQ of the distortion allows me to 'tune' the sound and mimic the Metallicia sound as well as the Pantera sound in one pedal.
Bryan Smith
If you don't want to buy a tube amp like a Peavey 6505 or a Mesa Boogie, this pedal will get you pretty close for far less money.

I've had my Boss Metal Zone for about 15 years and have never had any issues with it. It's an incredibly versatile distortion pedal (whether you're playing Thrash-metal or Brit-pop). I've used other (cheaper) fuzz-boxes etc, but I always come back to the Boss. Well worth the money.

Note that this pedal is meant to be used with an amp that is on a clean setting. The pedal is meant for playing metal (like Metallica), or metal-ish punk rock (like Pennywise, Strung Out, The Offspring). It does this very well. If you don't want to buy a tube amp like a Peavey 6505 or a Mesa Boogie, this pedal will get you pretty close for far less money. Of course nothing is better than a real tube amp, but this pedal is pretty cool. I combine mine with a $400 65-watt solid state amp and I love it. The EQ is very flexible, letting you dial in just about any sound you could want. The gain is adjustable too, so you can dial in more of a standard rock sound if you want. Boss pedals are extremely well built, known for lasting typically 10 to 20 years, or even more. And that's with regularly being used all the time.

I also have a Boss CH-1 Super Chorus and I put the pedals right next to each other. I can step on both at the same time and instantly switch from heavy metal distortion to a beautiful clean sound with chorus (a la Metallica), and then back.

I have a lot of pedals... In fact, I have 2 distortion and 2 overdrive pedals (though only the MT2 and the OD3 are regularly in my rig.) This pedal won't give you a "cranked up tube stack" sound. No... Instead, it's very edgy and smooth as can be. It has a mid-sweep knob on it to help sculpt your tone. I usually use it as a mid-boost for solos. You'll find that you get amazing sustain and a huge sound that you won't be able to replicate (easily... I'm sure the huge Boss distortion box comes close, but for the price...) with any other pedal.

This foot pedal it's beyond of what i expected of it, it's amazing super heavy and you can play with it what ever way you wan't. Completly easy to use i recomend it to any one willing to expand he's musical horizons and be heavier in what he or she plays.

This pedal delivers what it promises - Metal! The versatility and sound quality make this pedal a must-have for anyone playing on the heavier side. Combined with typical Boss bullet-proof construction and reliability, I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to add awesome crunch to any setup.

This is a great pedal I picked up used, they can be had cheaply on the used market. I actually use it with both an acoustic electric guitar to get a little distortion and the bass guitar for some grit. The 2 EQ pots on the front panel make it very versatile, enough to use with a cigar box guitar also.

The pedal can preserve bass signal and still be EQ'd for saturated distortion. The other reviews speak for this pedal both here and on other sites and one can see why it is so popular. I also other Boss Distortion pedals. Like most people, I own a DS-1 and an MD-2 which are both cheap and effective. I own a HM-2 Heavy Metal 2 which caters more to the traditional metal sound and I actually think this pedal is more versatile IMO with different guitars where you may not want a strictly metal tone.

I also own an older 80's HM-2 Heavy Metal which will run circles around the metal zone for classic thrash and speed metal tones and almost any other heavy distortion pedal that I could never part with, overall i like this pedal, but it cannot top the older legendary Boss pedals.

I use this pedal with my Dean Flying V guitar, and my Fender Mustang 1 amp, the combo is an 80s sound like the Scorpions, Def Leppard, Poison, and so on. It's an excellent price and very high quality, your amp and guitar will sound so much better you will never not have a pedal again.

First of all I want to say I love a tube amp distortion. Overdriven tubes are just how its meant to be. I run a Randall G3 hybrid amp and it destroys any solid state I've used or heard. For recording I use a Peavey 5150 and its so sweet. Tubes are how guitar was meant to be heard.

Recently I started playing with a band that required a dirty tone that I felt like could only be achieved through a pedal. There is absolutely nothing wrong with using distortion pedals, I used the DOD death metal for years when I first started playing. However, there is a downside. Go cheap and you get a piece of crap that makes your rig sound like an old AM radio, if you want something that sounds pro quality your going to shell out at least $250. Quality dist. pedals are not budget friendly.

I chose the MT-2 because I know Boss makes a quality product and it was the pedal the other guitarist was using. It gives a variety of sounds. It can be set up for an overdriven light distortion sound or full blown high gain metal tones. The controls make it very tweakable and I have gotten a load of very nice sounds out of it. Read the included book, look up some MP3s over videos online and check out other guitarists' settings. It will help you tame this pedal into what you want. Perfect pedal for those not wanting to spend a whole lot. There are also mods you can buy and install in the pedal or buy preinstalled from certain dealers that open it up to even more shaping and make it more useful.

I've seen a lot of complaints about the pedal sounding like nothing but fuzz. I must say learn how to shape sound, spend time dialing it in to your rig. Within 10 minutes I was pleased with the MT-2.
