We cannot tell you what you're going to like.

Do not pick the Razorback because it has flames on it. You pay more for them.

The Gibson will be the best all rounder.

The Jackson will be best suited for the metal bands you listed.

Look at Ibanez and Schecter you may find better options.

Les Pauls are always promising for anything. Especially if you play everything. But that's just my opinon. If you just play metal the Jackson might be your best bet.

Well not sure about witch guitars. Maybe warlocks would be more appropriate. (Har dee har har)

Ok Grammar/Spelling Naziing aside I agree with DontPushMongo. You should try them out. All 3 seem to be respectable guitars though I'm not 100% sure about the cleans on jacksons tried out a few and it just didn't really compare to the LP's though on the flipside I hear their distortion for metal tends to be better than LP's. It really depends on your own subjective tonal preferences. Also, I've found that some individual guitars just sound better than others of the same model (not so much at the higher end I find) so its definitely worth getting into a music store and trying some out if thats possible for you.

i'd go for an Ibanez. they're fantastic guitars, i prefer my SAS over my RR, but les pauls are more versitile
i'm Ginger its fun

The Gibson can do anything. Seriously, but i think its better suited for clean mid and low gain work. Thats where it really shines.

I'd suggest going to the guitar store and playing the guitars you're interested in, then pick the one you like the most.

Les Pauls are heavier than many guitars, and they also take a bit more precision with your fretting hand to get a nice clean sound out of them.

At least thats what i've found.

If you want to play heavy stuff you may also want to consider getting a guitar with a tremolo. The les paul has a stoptail

get the les paul, if need be strap on a new pickup on the bridge.

look at the unholy confessions music video, look at what guitar the lead guitarist is using

Of my 2 guitars I would give up the Jackson before I ever thought of giving up my Les Paul. But that's just me....I feel the LP is much more versatile and more comfortable on my fretting hand.
My Gear:

Jackson RR3 Pro
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Gibson Les Paul Standard
Fender CD140 Acoustic/Electric
Line 5 HD500 effects unit
Marshall MA100

Gibson sounds good, go to a music store and try
If not I think a LTD also is a good choice.
