Just got me a Steel Leather. Didn't really know what to expect but it's great! I wouldn't want to use it all the time but for metal it's awesome! It really gives you that Steve Harris click! Ra-ta-ta-ta, ra-ta-ta-ta! It's been described as the opposite of a compressor. As my compressor is always on I was worried that one would cancel the other out. But I found the Steel Leather sounded better with it. It tamed the effect a bit (which I guess it would). I suppose it'd work as long as they're not set the same if you see what I mean... Worth a try!
