I play through my TS9DX and Palomino (can get pretty heavy to a certain degree, with overdriving and all) and I'm thinking about how some thrash/metal bands get that evil riff sound. Any ideas?

I've always though that "Black Sabbath" by Black Sabbath was one of the most evil sounding songs ever... just throwing that out there, I don't have any specific techniques or advice to give

^That's the tri-tone they're talking about. Played by fretting two adjacent strings on the same fret.

Two adjacent strings on the same fret would be a fourth.
A tri tone would be:
E 1
A 2

On Black Sabbath the plays a power chord that would be a b5th up.

Stock Gibson Pickups from a 2005 V, I think they're a 498T and 500T set FS/FT
Duncan Distortion (regular spaced) FS

Looking for: an acoustic, recording gear, or $

Check out the metal guitar technique article here for more tips.

When I'm putting together a MIDI track, I just make everything chromatic with some tritones, and occasionally make everything random atonal notes, like in Slayer solos.
