Pinch harmonics and Whammy pedals will produce a wide array of screams and squeals.

yell at your guitar until it yells back or try dropping it till it cries out in pain......or pinch harmonics, they work good to.

they're called pinched/artificial harmonics. they're hard to explain search on youtube, some of the stuff there explains it well. basically you hold the pick in a way so that right after you pick the note......ew wait never mind. i just see how you are member of the defenders of emo. instead of playing pinched harmonics why dont you go play this over and over:

1. crank the fuzz
2. fret a note (easiest to get good sound on A, D, and G stings for me)
3. hold pick over fretted string 12 or 7 frets higher (i.e. if you fret G string 5th fret, hold
your pick over the 17th fret)
4. pick the note and rotate right hand to bump the string with your thumb over the fret
5. a squealing harmonic will ring, if not repeat over and over again until successful
6. embellish with tremolo or wah-wah
7. try 12, 7, 5, 9, and 3 frets higher (from easiest to hardest)

You have to hit the string with the pick and then brush it with your thumb, this all happens in about a millisecond though so it's kind of hard to show or explain. i'll try my best.

Start out by holding your pick normally, then move your thumb so that it sticks out further than the tip of the pick. Now keep it like that and start plucking any string, pick up and down on the string, towards the neck, then away from it, all over top of the pickups. All stringed instruments can produce harmonics but it varies, so you have to find the spots where your guitar has them. They also sound different depending on where you pick them. Now, once you can produce that sound (the squel or chime of it) then try fretting a note and doing the same thing. Once you have that down you can start incorporating it into your playing and even manipulate the harmonics with bends or a whammy bar.

Edit: Also, Volume ^ and Gain ^

Those are artificial harmonics, they're different and won't produce that mean metal sounding squel.
