What Vsts would I need to sound like Titus Andronicus?

They are my musical inspiration and I badly want my music to sound like them but it just doesnt happen. What VSTS would I need to sound similar to them? I've got amp sims like guitar rig and amplitude and also ezdrummer and omnisphere.

E.g. one of their songs

A little tip. From FearComplexMusic on his forum:

Ultimately though, as you say, if someone doesn't have their own vision of what they want to do it's not going to be an enjoyable experience. In fact I'd say chasing other peoples tones is the quickest way to frustrate yourself to the point you quit mixing!

So what am I saying. I'm saying don't go for their sound, go for a sound you can both achieve (remember you're not in this band, you are not their guitar player, there are SO many more aspects to tone than just what amp you use) and one you like.

If you're setting yourself up to sound exactly like another band, you've already failed before you've stared.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...

It's not what you use, it's how you use it. I'd add a "that's what she said", but really, I've given this exact reply so many times that it's lost its novelty.
To be helpful and not a butt, what about Titus Andronicus's guitar tone do you like? What makes it different from any other band in the same style? Ask yourself that, and go for those qualities, instead of trying to copy them wholesale.
