i just heard the song "trigger" by in flames and when he pal mutes the 0's you can hear this "sss" sound as if he had plastic strings.
anyone knows what creates this sound?

I love that sound,,,the closest I've ever come to it is by using my neck hum,,

That would be the drummers cymbals.

it isnt the cymbals that the ts is talking about,,,there is a very distinctive dry clicky sound,, its especially noticable at the beggining,,,at least i hope thats what hes talking about

Just sounds like palm muting on a decent amp to me, can't really associate his tone with a hiss or "sss" sound.

I might be missing something here..

Just sounds like palm muting on a decent amp, yeah.
The double bass is kicked behind it, is that the sound you're hearing?
Could also be a bit of the grindy tone of the bass guitar cutting through.

Certainly a normal guitar sound, so It has to be of those you're mistaking as a blend into the sound.

i know whats hes on bout, in between like 3 and 4 seconds into it, the second section of the palm muted opens.

its the amp dude, not drums or anything, it mite be like a half mute, cause im pretty sure its the strings making that sound

Thats probably some of the best advice I've ever received on here.

Out of interest, anyone know what amps they were using in this era?

I'm pretty sure they've been using 5150/6550's for a while, I don't know that they did on CC or ASOP though,, they have a decidely more grainy sound with less saturation on those albums.

Its the bass and kick drum complementing the sound. Its their signature sound imo.

They used Marshalls and Rectifiers on some songs, which might explain that "grainy" sound.

personally, I think it's a step down from their previous albums

Im thinking thats what it is, because the seems to have just a little bit of that tone that Im hearing with the palm mutes. Im thinking its just really in time with the guitars, to where it almost sounds like its part of the picking. Goddamn Im excited! Im seeing them in a few weeks!
