Dimarzio Liquifire in the neck and a Crunch Lab in the bridge is my suggestion. Crunch Lab is super tight and great for the high gain rythms and the Liquifire is one if the best voiced pickups I have ever heard for solos and cleans.

Check out Railhammer pickups. You'd probably want either a pair of Chisels, or a Chisel and an Anvil:

You may also find Teslas to your liking:

I am a fan of Lace Alumitones for their extremely clear sound, and the Deathbucker version is voiced more towards heavier styles:

I also hear Bareknuckle praise a hell of a lot, although I don't know much about them personally, I'm sure someone else here could set you straight. I believe the Nailbomb is the high output bridge pickup for your style but don't quote me in that :p.

Nope, they're a tiny UK maker. If you're considering that kind of money, also consider The Creamery (another UK brand), Lollar, Vintage Vibe, or Rio Gande.

But the best you're going to be able to do is sound clips over the Internet for any of those.

Holy shit I am sold on those Lace Alumitones can you get those in the UK? I'm going to go Deathbucker in the bridge and the Humbucker in the neck.

Lace is pretty well known- I'd be surprised if you couldn't get them fairly easily.
