Don't over saturate your tone with gain either, "less is more" applies itself here to an extent. You want enough gain to get the chunk, but be able to hear each note individually too. When palm muting, move your hand up the bridge towards your pickups a bit more to tighten it up.

Try this


Contradictions gallore. Well okay there's only one: You just proved you do/can 'djent' ie. "I just djented out an extended power chord, and then I sucked a bag of dicks".
