So i got an offset tele (that has an angled singlecoil bridge pu) and want to throw something new in thats both less noisy but aggressive and thick for death metal.

Any suggestions?

Sure you want thick?

Vintage style and go. As for noisy, replace the pots and wiring harness?

For less noisy I'd consider the (active) EMG T-set:

EMG Tele pickups are seriously overlooked. :agreed:

Even these stock PUs sound pretty awesome imo!

Do you want a hotter/thicker Tele-style pickup or any hot/thick pickup that's available with a Tele mounting style?

For a Tele pickup, I would look at the Dimarzio Area Hot T. I have the regular Area T in a Warmoth Tele and it does great rock tones, so I figure the hotter version could handle some extra nastiness while keeping the original Telecaster spirit in tact.

For a humbucker in a Tele housing, I'm afraid I won't he much help. The only one I've tried was a Duncan JB Jr that my friend has, but again that's more rock oriented. Hotter-spec models like the Super Distortion T or Hot Rails for Tele should be up your alley, though

I was going to make a joke about "why less noisy" if you are going to play Death Metal... but then I realized that you said Death not Black Metal...

I don't play death metal, but I was happy with a rail humbucker in my ex tele! It sounded like in between a bucker and a coil, but it could definitely go heavy. It has a unique sound actually.

Honestly ive been playing with it and the stock tele bridge def has something awesome going on when used with highgain, its very "chunky" so im actually thinking hotter/thicker TELE STYLE PU like you said, so ill have to look into the hot T.
Would love to hear more suggestions with this in mind!

For hotter/thicker, check the Dimarzio Super Distortion T as mentioned above.
