Mostly just from looking at their tabs, I've gathered that they often change keys mid section or after a section, and that often they use augmented, diminished and minor scales in a similar manner to german classical composers. For instance, this bridge from Vortex Omnivium (tab below) is all of those things and the song itself is a good example of such a thing. Also, they use large barre chord arpeggios for 'epic' transitions and as additions to main riffs, usually played by the lead player, Christian.

Pretty much everything is alternate picked, no downpicking, lots of string skipping riffs that tend to be somewhat melodic but are always often harmonized together by both guitars (the end riff in the first tab, for example).
