Q: would i like the EMG 81?

Aye, I'd say you probably would. As an EMG user, I can say with say with confidence they offer that trademark metallica "chug".
You can attain similar sounds with other high output pickups, but when it comes down to brass tax they do the job, and they do it better than anyone else for that type of music.
If you're scared of getting something sounding too closed sounding, the EMG 85, offers a similar sound, but in a more open way.

depends on what wood you put it in. I have a Alder body with 81's and it pretty bright. I also have a maple guitar and its a bit better with the Dual 81's.
All depends on preference, and of course you can EQ your amp to get rid of some noise but be sure you know what your looking for.

I like hardcore metal like slayer,zakk wylde and BLS, metallica(older of course )
clean is not real important to me but power,clarity,and ROAR is so would i like the EMG 81 even more over pu's like the tone zone,duncan distortion,JB ,etc?
