Blackened Post Metal Voicings

In this lesson we look at some nice atmospheric post-metal style voicings with somewhat of a blackened edge to them, as well as a general progression we can use them with.

Practice Tips

  • Post Metal style riffs benefit from using open strings and intervals such as tritone, minor 2nd, major 3rd and inverted root 5th.
  • Don't use too much gain with this style as it will make the sound too noisy and indecipherable. Also make sure to use plenty of mid range and treble in order to clarify the tone.
