Found this video from Abysmal Torment's guitarist David Depasquale. He uses some interesting chords I need to know more about. Check out the video and particularly the chord on the main riff he uses often during the first 0-:25 or so. It really gets good - and that chord is involved again in a slower, groovier riff at 1:10-

The tuning (thanks to a thread on Sevenstring.org) I also need some explanation of regarding strings 4 and 5, if someone knows more. It is:

G# C# F# B A# B
