Death metal is almost entirely in the overall gear (amp/cab etc) and the player itself.
That said Crunchlab and Liquifire set was designed in mind for Petrucci and he uses a lot of gain (not so much on their older albums, but in the last 10 years on studio albums and live he seems to really use a beefy amount of gain).
He also tends to tune down too, so he'd need a pickup to handle that along with the healthy amount of gain.
I can guarantee those pickups (as well as the D-Sonic) will handle any kind of high gain style of playing you throw at it with ease, death metal included.
