Didn't Kerry King use MGs at some point?

I think he just endorses them because he likes sacks of money

You mean like the first seconds or? I didn't really hear any effect. That's really a studio trick.

It's a guitar at low volume, and then it comes in louder with the rest of the instruments.

do you mean just the quieter guitar?

i may be wrong, but i think its probably just recorded on a smaller amp from further away, like blur recorded the intro to song 2 on a marshall micro stack

That's either his straight amp tone, or it's going through some sort of radio filter. It's nothing fancy, but if it's a radio filter, you're only going to find that kind of thing in a computer program like garageband.

It's probably just a guitar with the volume knob rolled down a bit or less distortion.

Actually, an EQ pedal does the same thing.

Really? How would you set it to do that? I have an EQ pedal and would love for a radio filter effect in my live rig.

Basically zero the lowest and highest frequency sets, and spike the upper mids. To taste, of course.
