How do machine head get the special effects sound in such songs like aesthetics of hate? Is it just an effects pedal?
#2
They don't use very many effects in that song. It's just distortion

This

but if you're talking about that part at the beginning I want to say they're using a clean channel, palm muting the notes, and pouring a lot of reverb on.

The intro to Aesthetics of Hate is played without distortion using the bridge pickup. A small amount of flanger or phaser is also used. Let the first open note ring out throughout the whole bar.

EMG pickups. Any active pickup will actually do, I tried some B.C.R.A pickups and they sound (in my opinion) better than EMGs.
TheBodomBullet is right about the clean tone though.

I read something and one of the guitarists said chorus is the heart of his tone. (obviously not all the time though)

Yes a multi-effects pedal will most likely include a flanger,that is the effect you are looking for.
