Help getting the right sound

Hi. ive been playing guitar long enough and my influences are Chevelle, Trust Company, Three Days Grace, NIrvana, Deftones and mostly nu metal, hard rock. Ive been playing through my Line 6 Spyder II combo but i got tired of the effects in it and i was thinking of buying pedal effects so if any one could guide me what to choose from the large variety of pedals out there so i can get perhaps not the same but really close to the sound of the bands i mentioned before itd be really appreciated it. My first choice would be a MXR Custom Shop GT-OD and the DIgitech Hardwire DL-8 Stereo Delay.

This is my honest advice coming from a fellow guitar player. Before you get into playing around with pedals and effects.... Look into getting a tube amp. This will take your tone from amateur to professional.... I know you don't want to hear it but believe me. As far as pedals go

I also have a line6 spider 2 amp. I strongly dislike the distortion tone...The clean tone isn't bad. Definitely get a tube amp.

I've been playing for 14 years and I can tell you first hand tone is in the fingers doesn't matter the amp the pedals the tube line buffer the power soak the great mic and compressor going into great converters if you can't get the tone from the guitar. to test this goto a local guitar shop and just listen for a few hours ive heard insane tone comming from a seasoned player and a fender solid state practice amp
