If this is your first guitar I would advise that you buy a cheaper guitar. And to awnser your question an RR5 can do Death Metal but you need a good amp for a similar sound to those dudes.

If it's your first electric go with something that can also do other things but death metal well... this guitar will suit u well in this case. Even if death metal is ur preference, there will always be times where u want other stuff to sound good as well (for me i thought the same way, but now i also play a lot of blues and classic rock).

buying as much guitar as you can afford is cheaper in the long run provided you dont change your mind about playing all together.

RR5 can go very heavy although you may or may not want to swap out the pickups depending on your preference, id definately be happy with the stock ones though. it will easily get a classic rock sound as well and depending on your amp you should even be able to go a bit bluesy.

First off, you need a really good amp (or an amp with lots of gain) to pull off death metal. I can use some crappy no named guitar and plug into Mesa Boogie and do some death metal. Amp makes up most of your tone; sure it's nice to have a good guitar but get a good amp first.

What is your budget?
Where are you from?
Can you go used?

Alexis sig guitar is a copy of the Jackson one, not the other way around.

You really need high output pickups and a high gain amp to play death metal.

High end Jackons are good throughout most of the line, the RR5 should do fine.
Look into the high end Ibanez RG's also, they're great, I think the dude from necrophagist uses and Ibanez now actually.

You're failing to answer the most important question:

What amp are you going to use?

i've always had a bit of struggle choosing between RR5s and BC Rich Ironbirds (platinum obv.). However i'd recommend the Ironbird for death metal. Jacksons are more of a thrash guitar, though the sound is much sweeter.
