I've been playing the ionian mode recently, but I just wanted to know, which mode tends to sound better when applied to a thrashy, metalcore stlye riff?

phyrigian or lydian sounds good on metal, also the minor(aaolian)

I'm using natural or harmonic minor (aeolian and ?? )when I'm in the mood for metalcoreish riffs, however someone below me will have a little more original ideas :P

phrygian

it's the same as the natural minor, but with a "diminished second step"

and obviously the harmonic aeolian XD

According to my metalcore obsessed friend, C Aeolian. I guess because drop C and the minor riffing based on that.

though i think what people have said already would work fine. also look a teeny bit into chromatics.

Don't ask me I have no idea how the hell it happened.

It's obvious that phrygian is far more metal than aeolian. For metal, you can't beat a b2.

Not true. Both are quite common.

Minor second, not diminished second.
Harmonic minor, not harmonic aeolian.

Most metal isn't modal. 99% of the time it's in a minor key with a few chromatic notes added in.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
