Wah first and then the distortion should work...

Do they sound ok when it's just wah or just Distortion?

weird as in the pedal is not really sounding like a wah, it just sounds like its raising and lowering the volume, but its works when its by itself and its just the amp

Mmmm check the tone in your MT pedal. The wah pedal works with a filter. If the tone in your MT is not "correct" is possible you hear like a increase and decrease in the volume and not the effect.

Yeah, Ramiro is right about that subject, you see wah pedal is a filter that moves the Q parameter of mid frequencies up and down, so if you dont have any mids in your tone, it wont work as its supposed to.

I'm with Ramiro on this one, definitely check out the EQ on the Metal Zone pedal. Also a good thing to check is pickup position. Often wah works better on bridge then on neck pickup.

Can you post an audio sample perhaps mate. It would mean a lot in determining the problem. Also try to tweak the EQ more on the metal zone, if you haven't tweaked it a lot.
