Favorite metal guitar plugins?

I record metal guitars most often going through the DI into the box, and use amp simulators and IR's.
Would be keen to know what are your favorite plugins for guitars (amp sims, IR's, etc)

Here are my favorites

Tube Screamer: TSE 808 https://www.tseaudio.com/software/tse808
Amp Sim: TSE x50 https://www.tseaudio.com/software/x50v2

I don't like the IR's included with the x50 though. I've tried various IR's and the best I've come across are
Catharsis fredman impulses. I have them on google drive, and can't afford to live without them.
2off-preshigh.wav is God-Like

Anyone want to share their favorite metal guitar plugins?

I currently prefer Mercuriall and Neural DSP ampsims especially for the hi-gain tones.

Rn i'm using archetype abasi and plini, they're just get the job done.
