I hope that we could get some real metal out there. I guess A7X a start...
But nu metal does have its moments like Slipknot Mushroomhead and Korn.

**** alt picking with slayer jkust practice it with a metronome ull get it, eventually

playing with all downstrokes gets a much better thrash sound, play the main riff to master of puppets alt picked then compare it to the sound on the record that is all downstrokes

Playing the MOP verse riff whilst alternate picking will only sound dodgy because you are playing more than one string at once, you dolt. Besides, alternate picking AND downstrokes can be used for for any genre, and it IS possible to play metal or punk or genres that like that, effectively with alternate picking, it's just practicing technique.

Actually, you are only playing more than one string when the powerchords come in. The low E palm-mute is strictly downpicked. It's not that hard. And it sounds a ton better.

I tried strict downpicking for Piece by Piece, and it's not really that hard. I assume you're talking about the intro and the following triplet patterns? The verse obviously can't be just downpicked.

Then I tried alternate picking and it became alot easier. That's about all there is to it.
