At about 1:08 in this video, the guy hits and bends a note that sounds like a sort of growl or scream. Sounds really cool and I'm wondering how he does it.

Its a unison bend.

"Play two notes simultaneously and bend the lower sounding note up to the desired pitch. Some unison bends also bend both strings."

Examples -

- play the 15th fret B string and 17th fret G string. Bend the B string a whole tone while picking both the strings together. I fret the B string with my first finger and bend the G string with my third finger.
- play the 15th fret e string and the 18th fret B string and bend the B string a whole tone.
- play the 7th string G and B string together and bend both strings at the same time. I bend both the strings together using my third finger.

The slower the bend, the more dissonance it creates between the two notes for that growly sound.

I think it's a different type of double stop bend rather than a unison bend he's listening to. It sounds like a perfect fourth between strings 2 and 3 and bending the note on string 3 up a tone to make it a major 3rd.

Without double checking on my guitar, I think he's fretting the C at fret 13 on string 2 with finger 4 at the same time as the G at fret 12 on string 3 with finger 3 and bending the G up a tone to an A.

It's a double stop bend, but not a unison. He's holding a perfect 4th on the G and B strings, then bends the G up a whole step to create a minor third with the stationary note on the B string.

In that video he frets the notes G and C, and then bends the G up to an A.
