Get a DiMarzio X2N for the bridge.

You wont use the neck pick-up anyway.

um, the blackheart isn't made for metal, so you won't get a good metalcore sound out of it period, the XXX should do well though. you might want an OD pedal to boost your XXX though, i really doubt changing pups will give you a metal tone makeover. changing pups is what you do when you LIKE your tone, but just want to fine tune it.

that and an EQ pedal could work wonders.

new pups are one of the last things you should do.
