Default snare head?

i am looking for a snare head that is good for metal
right now i have the powerstroke 3, it is pretty good, but i want a new head since it is gettin old and worn.
im not sure if i should get one with a ring or not?
and i want my snare to be loud not quiet.
i play really hard, rarely play soft.

my snare is a 14"x5.5" birch shell, i'm playing the Evans 'power center reverse dot' - it just sings! it has that nice almost metallic ring to it, really cuts through!

hope that helps!

Remo emporor x or an Aquarian Hi-Enery. Enough said.

I second the Aquarian Hi Energy. I'm a bit biased, because I haven't played the Emperor X, but the Hi Energy has lasted me a year so far, of beating the crap out of it. And it sounds GREAT when it's tuned low, high, or in between. It is a look, though, with the black ring around it--but that shouldn't be your main deciding factor.

I am using an Evans genera dry on my snare and it has a great crack to it. But I am also using the hazy 300 on the bottom. Not a lot of overtones. I have a 6x14 maple.
