    you can try the bluesdriver by boss ...
    regardin distortion ..well if you want a realy heavy one ..go for the digitech metal master or digitech death metal pedal.... or you could get the good old DS1 distortion pedal by bose.

    ^Yuck, digitech death metal sucks. Boss MT-2 is the way to go.

    Awright Aravindzin here is my suggestion (though I dont claim to havce a vast knowledge):
    If you like fuzzy trebly sound then go for the Boss MT-2. If you want really metallic sound then Digitech Metal Master is good (though I find Digitech Disotrtion factory better).

    AMT Metallizer is also awesome.

    There are a few of handbuilt/modded pedals that are great (gotta search for their links).

    MT-2 modded by Keeley sounds ooh-la-la (I have just heard the clips on teh website, not the real thing, but from What I hear, Keeley does impressive job.

    Boss BD-2 modded by Keeley wins hands down. (According to my preferences) I heard and played around with it recently. It sounds great.

    Tubescreamer TS-9 also does a good job. But somehow to me it sounds a little fuzzy. TS-7 sounds way too low gainy for my liking.

    Guess keeley does some mod job on Tubescreamer too.

    Check these sites out: (Thanks to Ronnieanand)

    So you are a Trey Fan. That's great to hear that. Not many people know him. Trey rules. Use a Tube Screamer kinda thing to get that kinda tone. Trey uses two of them.

    Have you heard the song Simple - Phish. I have a similar kind of tone.
