Ok examples of what i mean are Korn songs such as:

right now,
wake up hate,
let's do this now.

What gives the angry sound (other than the lyrics)

Are korn songs in a certain Key that has that special sound?
Or is it fieldys bass ?
Or is it the guitars ??

Any help is appreciated.

And btw, those songs dont have solos or anything so I dont think it could be Minor scale.
Remember, angry, not sad sound

I'm not sure I understand but I think its probably their low tunning and the tone they get.

they have rather low-tuned seven strings, so it is probably their tones. Live, at least, the singer does almost nothing for their sound. his voice isnt too low sounding.

Apart from the tuning, the scales and intervals you employ play an integral role.

Try using a minor second followed by a major second, e.g


On the low E ->

theres lots of ways to get a heavy sound... u can use a drop tuning, use a distortion pedal (which probly helps more than a new amp in my opinion) u can use certain keys such as an e minor... how u do yr solos also helps, i find if u want a heavy sound fast and repative works better than melodic.... for example doing something like g-15-17-15-18 and repeating a few times on each string depending on the scale always works for a heavy sound altho it will sound slightly generic

7 strings also help as B is extremely low.

i always love questions like this,,there is no real way to make a formula for an angry sound,the anger should show through in the performance of the entire band anything can sound angry when played with attitude and the vocals are what will really make it sound angry
