Hiho,

so here goes a noob question:

The screaming metal sounds, for example the intro of Slipknot's Psychosocial, how are they done? I guess some kinda pedal, but which one would that be?

Look up pinch harmonics, and don't expect to be able to do them right away, it takes a lot of practice. I would try to explain how to do them but I wouldn't be very good at it.
Gear:
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser
Ibanez GRG170DX
Peavey Vypyr 75
Fender Princeton 650 DSP w/ Celestion 80w speaker

Pinch Harmonics, it's a playing technique, not a pedal, though you could probably use a Wahmmy Pedal to get the same sound
Rig
Fender 09 Standard Strat>Wilson Ten Spot II Wah>Boss DS-2 Turbo Distortion>EHX Big Muff Pi>Boss CE-2 Chorus>Crate V32 Palomino 212
Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass>(Same Pedals)>AcousticB20

That was quick, thanks. Found a nice guide on pinch harmonics on the net. Oh my, looks like there's some practicing ahead

If this is a joke, then that's great.

If it wasn't, I feel like crying.


And probably just pinch harmonics.

i just started on pinch harmonics yesterday and i mastered them in like 2 hours, its frustrating, but it is worth it in the end. you need to experiment with different thumb/pick positions.
