Need some help. Alternate picking

Alternate picking and moving down strings is what I'm having trouble with. I'm not sure if it's called Inside picking, but somebody also referred to it as that once.
I'm currently learning this song.
Search "Escape The Fate - Ungrateful (Offical Music Video)" in on youtube.
I'm having trouble on the bit roughly from 1:39 to 1:41.

It is played like: (According to the tab i'm running off.


From listening to the song, i'm pretty sure the run thing is all palm muted.

I've been practising playing it really slow and building up my speed, but I still can't play it anywhere near as fast as it is. I'm doing all alternate picks from the 0-0-0 and onwards. Is there any technique or way to improve?
Thanks in advanced

Well that was an... interesting video... And the way that I would play it would be all alternate picking (not just after the 0-0-0) and I would play the first note with an up-stroke, and just keep going from there. Other than that just keep practising it slow like you've been doing, and speed it up a little each time, maybe using a metronome. And also maybe you can watch someone playing a cover of it on youtube, and try to copy what they're doing in the cover.
