Hey guys I have a question for War Is My Shepherd from the Tempo Of The Damned Album:

Do they downpick the whole song?

I tried to do it with just downpicking and it is really hard. I can't imagine that Gary and Lee have that much energy in their right hand that they play a bunch of heavy rhythmic and fast songs on a concert and ALSO downpick this 5 minute epic in it's speed.
Moreover they play it faster live than on the record.

It's really a combination of the two. You down pick when it calls for it and alternate when it needs it. Just get those riffs up to speed and your hand will decide what short cuts to take when... Well, mine did after a while lol.

*lol* they say downpicking but not every note! even Metallica has come clean that they don't downpick all notes

If they did, though, I imagine they would move the pick in an oval motion and hit the string on the down swing. That and doing your push-ups pull-ups might pull it off.
