Hey all...

Was watching this video on EMGtv and this guitarist plays this cool sounding chord, and yea... I've a poor ear, can't really figure it out... :/

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLngTVI5iTg

He plays it around 0:37

I know it's a noob-ish question... but the curiousity's killing me!
What's that chord, and how do you play it???

It looks like he's playing a powerchord type root, fifth, octave shape, but with a diminished fifth, so in a tab, it would be like this:
D|---5--------
A|---4--------
E|---3--------

instead of the normal powerchord shape.

D|---5--------
A|---5--------
E|---3--------

Will check it out and see! Thanks
In the vid though, the stretch seems a wee bit more awkward than in a chord shape like this :/

He was in Nevermore in the This Godless Endeavour period, half the solos in Psalm of Lydia are him
