No. There is no "best choice" for any style, it's just what you want. I played a Jem7VWH with EVOs through a Mesa Mark IV, and the tone was incredible. Better than anything I've ever heard done with EMGs. The fact is, somehow EMG has gotten this reputation as being the best metal pickup ever, and nothing comes close to it, when this couldn't be further from the truth. You have to realize (and this can hard to accept, as we all love a fire-breathing bridge pickup) that a high-output pickup is simply not in any way essential to a heavy tone. If the pickup is too hot, it will sound unclear, and flubby on the low end, which is something you don't want.
I too play extreme metal, so I know where you're coming from. Right now, I'm looking for an RG 7620 (if you're interested in selling, look me up, I have a post in the classifieds) and I'm going to put a Tone Zone 7 in the bridge. I imagine you would say that this pickup is too dark, too middy, and too lacking in output to be a good metal pickup. I disagree. The 707 is very scooped, but you want a lot of mids in a pickup if you're going to scoop the mids at the amp. Otherwise, it's just blah. Also, if you crank the treble on your amp (I imagine you do), you might try something not as bright to begin with, so you won't sound harsh or thin. If you havea darker sounding rig, the EVO should do you fine. If your rig is bright, pop in a Tone Zone. It will serve you well. There's a reason these two pickups are so popular on this forum. Also, I would recommend the Duncan Invader 7. It's very fat and dark sounding, too.
Basically, I just wanted to say that EMGs are very overrated, and if you buy the EMG Afterburner, you get all the benefits of active pickups anyway. I have one, they're great.
