    Vildhjarta <- Listen to first song, "Traces"

    Seriously, this guitar tone... wtf is up with it? The guitars are growling fiercely! Especially from 0:21 - 0:50, there is this "thing" they do which just sounds... heavy.

    Does anyone have any general pointers to what they might've done to get that sound? Not that I believe I would ever be able to even get close to it, but I just want to gain some knowledge about it.

    Edit: I meant to focus on those "things" they do between 0:21 - 0:50, not the actual guitar tone throughout the whole song.

    Sounds like the guitar is being doubled with a synth to me.. those notes are noticeably thicker than the rest and unusually punchy.

    Seriously, V-Amp? I always thought they were low budget, crappy crap crap stuff. Do people use V-Amps in a serious manner? (Forgive my ignorance, but I always believed V-Amps were frowned upon).

    Wow if a POD is what they use for (a big part of) the tone, I might consider getting one in the future... could also come in handy at home while writing stuff!

    Now, this is really interesting! Damn, why did I never think of this... this opens up a whole new door in composing music! Even if they didn't use this technique, I imagine it would be a really cool idea to run a pass through the guitars and see where you can compliment it with a synth, not to just spice it up, but to actually reinforce the guitars in an extreme way.

    Really, even if this is not what they did, I thank you for the tip! I will definately give it a try when I get some songs together.

    I'm 99% sure that is a POD tone.

    Plus nothing special too. The bass and lowend is everything.

    Guitars are VERY scooped on the lowmids which let's the bass/kick shine through. There's just some synths in the background, nothing doubled with the guitars I'm afraid.

    sounds a lot like the Meshuggah tone.. which is done on Line-6 stuff.
    I guess it'd be hard to get that kind of low end on a tube amp..

    I think them beeing great players defines a part of the tone. The picking is machine-like in precision

    Really? That tone does nothing for me. Sounds like a cheap version of suga's tone. It is a real good song though

    That's what I thought the very first time I heard it too, but after a while, I started getting used to it. Then I kinda liked it, but still, it's those "things" between 0:21 and 0:50 that really "does it" for me :D it just sounds "chuga chuga chuga chuga BAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWW chugga chugga" etc, it's huge!

    Sounds thin and harsh to me, like has already been said, it's a cheap version of Meshuggah's tone. Why is everybody copying Meshuggah these days?
