How would you pick this pattern?

Hi guys,

I am trying to do a cover of the song "The sound of Truth" by As I Lay Dying.
I've got the whole song down except for the main riff -.-

Here are the tabs: (open is palm muted)

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
b|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
g|-7-----7-10-----10----9----9----9-12---12----10---10-14----14------|
d|---0-0------0-0----0-0--0-0--0-0----0-0---0-0--0-0-----0-0----0-0---|
a|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
d|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


I can't really get it to sound right. I always seem to end up just doing one open string and using only downstrokes.

Any help is much appreciated

Link to the song

I would do all down strokes and hammer on the 7h10 & 9h12. Not really anything else I can suggest to do.

I like dissonance.

Strict alternate picking is always a good choice, but I would play every note on the G string with a downstroke except for hammer-ons when there are two notes like 7h10. The on the D string I would pick the 00 every time like up-down making the whole pattern a bit more economic.
