Would it be possible to get a "brutal" metal tone out of a 7 string with a dimarzio tone zone in the bridge and an air norton in the neck???

Yes. It would depend on your amplifier.



Well, ready for a cringe.... Valveking head.
They're not that bad though, ive got an od pedal infront of it and it actually sounds pretty sweet.

Im using an ibanez RG7321, im thinking of new pickups and cant decide, i NEED to change them, the stock pups are muddy as hell.

You can get a brutal metal tone from the Squier Hello Kitty strat, WITH it's stock pickup! Brutality is primarily in the amp, secondarily in the playing style, thirdly in the pickup (only differences you're lookin at are humbucker at single-coil at this point).
Also, the Tone Zone is a VERY high output pickup, so yes. The air Norton is/was used by John Petrucci, and listen to Train of Thought.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"
