I haven't heard the song, but does it go, PM, PM, no PM kinda fast?

You probably should have your guitar at an angle so it's easy to PM, that's what I do.

dude...downstrokes with your palm on the bridge FTW

yup.. anchoring like i said... (it's good for alt. picking too)
#8
yes it is good for going fast....but palm muting you have to anchor you hand anyway on the string....just alternate pick to go fast....or if you want it to sound really god you will need to downpick very fast

Downpicking fast is easy, but if you do it the was I do it, it'll tire your arm fast. Use about 33% of your arm and 67% of your wrist.

If you can downpick fast then you will alternate pick twice as fast

Fast palm muted strokes? Disposable Heroes by Metallica off Master of Puppets FTW. Get to about 0:32 into the song.

I don't know if it's just me, but I needed more muscle then technique, because I only palm mute by strumming downwards with no anchor and after doing it a while it starts to tense your muscles. So yeah, I don't know

Maybe practise tremolo picking first.
