This song uses a drop C tuning and heavy distortion for that low aggressive sound. Drop C tuning is tuning your low E string down two whole steps, and all the remaining strings down one whole step from the norm: C, G, C, F, A, D.

You definitely want a guitar with humbucker pickups for this song. Killswitch Engage does a fabulous job of incorporating chords normally used in jazz into a heavy rock format. This combined with the drop tuning and a driving groove makes for a very melodic and heavy sound.

The clean guitar part uses alternate picking. The distorted guitar uses downstroke picking with palm muting.
