Back when I needed a mic for death metal, my 'guy' at axe (who knows me and my style inside out) said the EV 967 is what i'm looking for. I have it for studio purposes, not sure how road-worthy it is but it's great for studio's, sounds absolutley amazing for my screams. something to consider...

I've heard the SM7 is great for this too, but I've not got my hands on one to try out yet.
Personally I've had good results with a 57 and pop filter (through a decent pre), although these days I usually just use a cheapo Studio Projects B1. Lately I've been recording the same vocalist though (black metal projects actually), and his voice just doesn't really go well with the 57. It just accentuates frequencies in his voice that I find irritating enough just being in the same room as him.

Give it 6 months and the Axe-Fx will be mentioned in the same sentence as the Johnson Millenium stuff.
I'd say a good compressor is equally as important. Gotta compress the **************** out of those screams to get them sounding tight, (which is essentially what you're doing when you're cupping the mic.)
