Distortion is a heavier effect than Overdrive.  It's found on more modern recordings including Modern Rock, Metal and more.  Distortion has various grades of "power".  When I think Distortion I think of anything from Metallica, Rob Zombie, and many more great heavy bands.  Distortion can be used for both fat and chunky rhythm tones as well as stinging lead solos.

    Greenchild LLC Tribus Boost, Overdrive, and Distortion Pedal

    Offering durable construction and a vintage vibe for the consummate musician, Greenchild LLC’s Tribus Drive takes multi-functional effects to an entirely new level with random access switching. Tribus enables quick, silent, and reliable channel hopping across all three channels (boost, overdrive, and distortion).
    The Tribus Drive is a distinctly voiced, handmade, guitar pedal designed with a broad ranging tonal palette. From blues, rock, metal, country, and jazz, Tribus Drive has you covered.

    Random access switching: hop from channel-to-channel in any sequence
    MOSFET-based distortion
    True mechanical bypass across all three channels
    Properly matched input and output impedance
    Silent relay muting (via internal toggle switch)
    Extreme touch sensitivity; responds dynamically to every nuance of your playing
    Equally well suited for driving tubes, solid state amps, or direct injection (DI)
    Built like a tank, by hand in the USA, with premium quality parts

    27dB of clean boost on tap; plenty of power to drive your amp into pure, glorious saturation. The Bone Ray tone control matches the flexibility of a traditional three knob tone stack, with only two knobs.
    An extremely dynamic MOSFET overdrive that will add bite to your signal and push your tone to the limits. The tone control provides treble boost or cut, and the volume control features an active Baxandall circuit for extra power and sustain.
    Distortion served with tons of dirt and saturated gain. Expect MOSFET based distortion with Plexi tones that range from rock to heavy metal, and a unique voice control that adds punch or clarity on demand.
