The pedals main forte is Metal ! But the pre and post gain stages offer variability that does not put this fx pedal in a single category. It easily achieves the edge you expect from a metal, high-gain distortion pedal, but also has a more delicate and brittle sound that can be dialed back (with mid, high and pre-gain tamed).
Power chords absolutely growl (bass at 3 o'clock), offering serious low-end grit while extending harmonics and bite into the low mid and midrange frequency range (to your liking). Furthermore, the true bypass wiring of the pedal means it stays clean with your other effects.
