I've been wondering for a while now, what scales are used in songs like "Laid to Rest" by Lamb of God and "User-Maat-Re" by Nile? They sound a bit Egyptian or Middle Eastern, are they actual scales or just the guitarists picking notes on the neck that sound like that?

i've never heard any of the songs you listed, but the harmonic minor has a distinctive egyptianish sound. it's a very common scale, so check it out.

Theres actually a scale called the egyptian scale.
The formula is 1, 2, 4, 5, b7

I'm not sure about what scale the main riff in Laid to Rest uses, but I know for a fact that Nile use real Egyptian scales and melodies.

Yeah most people assume harmonic minor has an egyptian sound and phrygian major can be interchanged with harmonic minor so try using those in context.
