With 8 strings bridge pickup position and slant definitely makes a noticeable difference imo. My flubbiest sounding 8 strings have the pickups set further away from the bridge by a good 10mm on the bass side. The tighter sounding ones have the bridge pickup route around 20mm away at most.
But if the guitar is currently too round/not high enough output, then the painkiller should correct that. Aftermath also has a very lean low end and decent output, so that would also probably mitigate the current sound. Have you tried a 10 band eq to sculpt the guitar's frequencies before it hits the other parts of the rig? That's a pretty easy/cheap solution to avoid going down the pickup rabbit hole (unless you really want to).
Yeah, I use an Axe FX these days and running a high-pass filter out front of the amp block helps a ton. Maybe I should just be happy with that.
I would suggest the BKP Nailbomb with the ceramic magnet.
