which set is better, i play metal Death, progressive, Thrash, little shred and power so it has to be good enough for heavy palm muting riffing and warm enough for soloing / shredding. i don't want anything overly trembly?

dimarzio DP159 Evolution / DP158 Evolution ?



or

Emg 81 / 85

Just no. Get a better amp first. I wanted to say it first, and it has been said. AN AD30VT will not get you great death metal tones. Amps account for 70% of your tone, and that valvetronix is not going to get you the tone you want. Save up for a Peavey 5150 and you should be fine

EMGs are a little sterile to my tastes, but the output you get is awesome, especially for Pinch Harmonics, though I usually recommend Seymour Duncan JB's to my customers ( I work at a Guitar Center in Chicago), because they have a really good balance of warmth and with overdrive they really scream (Willie Adler of Lamb of God uses them along with many other metal guitarists) , and a 59' in the neck for smooth leads. But if it's strictly between those 2, I'd go with EMGs, only because I own them.

I retract my previous statement. Don't get EMGS. They are very sterile sounding, no vibe at all. I realize you are playign heavier music, so I would go for the Dimarzios. Powerful passives are much better sounding than regular Actives.
