I was wondering what that effect was right at the start of the song, ([forbidden link].
The band mention they use BOSS-DD20/ Digitech Timebender, although I'm not sure if these pedals will give of the 'staccato' effect that the actual recording has? Thanks!

that's a square wave tremolo.


Yep. You won't get that with a Timebender/DD-20 mate.

Ah thanks! Could you give me a few examples of the pedals (sort of below £100 that could give off this effect?

Boss TR-2 is a cheap but effective pedal. Does have a bit of volume drop though. The EHX Stereo Pulsar may work, but I don't know if it does square wave. The Voodoo Labs Tremolo would also do the job.
