My next Metal amp- help me with my research

hello- I am looking for the next metal amp to add to my ensemble- what I have now is a Marshall Jcm600 (much like the JCM800) , and a Mesa quad preamp(very much like mark III). I am looking for something that would round out my tonal 'palette'- It seems like a 5150/6505 type amp would fit me best. the only thing I need to decide now is between the 6505 or the 6505+- Is there a tonal difference between the two? What other amps should I look at? I have been researching metal amps for a while now, and there seems to be alot of terms used to describe them I do not fully understand- like: 'Brown' 'tight' 'dark voiced' 'Saturated' 'Raw' 'crunch' Could you guys tell me what these terms mean, and then give me examples of amps that sound that way?

Personally I'd go Engl. Love the tone. Check the demo below.

How much you looking to spend?
