I have a mate who loves metal and like mine his favorite genre is black metal. He recently broke his old Boss metal zone MT-2 pedal and is interested in buying a new one however he cannot decide what type of pedal he wants. The only information he could tell me was that he wanted something that wasn't as distorted as his metal zone but would still be good for playing metal. He prefers a BOSS pedal but is willing to try other brands.

Could you guys please post your opinions on different sorts of pedals you have used and past experience?

line6 uber metal is good, i love the incorporated noise gate it help a lot, but i think the best way to model the distortion is with an equalizer, not trying differet pedals...

I own the Boss GT8 - Guitar Effects Processer which works pretty good.

There are some good Processors where you can find all in one or at least a blend of a couple of effects in one, like Zoom 505 or some Digitech.

Talking about a single pedal you can try this one out:

Cheers guys. I think he is looking into buying another Metal zone if he can't find the sound he is looking for. (Which sadly I do not know :/ )

I used a MT-2 for some 15 years. What i can say is that it is a very versatile pedal. But you have to know how to set up its sound. I have seen tons of guitarplayers who had this pedal without knowing how to set up the sound properly.
Most of them want to sound as if they are the whole band. Lots of low and lots of high frequencies.
While the guitarsound is in the MIDS.
I set the the double ring knobs for high/low 6/6 and the mids (mid freq) 4 and (mid) 6.
The inner part of the latter knob is defining tone and volume. The definition of pitch, what you are playing, is hugely dependent of the inner part of that setup knob.

Line6 is shit, Digitech is crap, Metal Muff is okay.

MT-2 has kind of to thin of an ear bleeding shrill in it's highs, in fact I think that they include the knob so you can cut off all the noise.
Not sure it's the best black metal option, I'm not sure of the exact sound your friend is going for or his setup already, but typically the MT-2 is more of a modern compressed loud chugga-chugga, thud-thud. Definitely more dynamic than the Metalcore, but possibly not the top choice.

You could check out the old HM-2 made famous by those Sweds in the early 90's. Has more of an 80's-90's sound to it that might work.

What sort of amp does he have?

Now if you're working high volume or studio only, or even if your amp has a rather high gain on it or an overdrive. Than you should check out some of Bosses yellow overdrive pedals. There's a couple different series, check them out. They might be perfect.
Even check out the classic orange box. Find a guitar shop that will let you try out pedals, then shop around.

One advice: If you have a solid state amp at home, use a solid state amp in the shop too!
There is a HUGE difference between solid state, valvestate and full tube amps.

all depends what sound you like, I mean, want to sound classic, modern, analog or digital, metal zone was the most popular pedal last decades of the past century. this time we have a lot posibilities down to our feets. but well its a long topic for talking about, but well, my preference Uber metal by Line 6, 3 kinds of distor+noise supresor= a lot of varities to try, may be here you can get your sound.
