Help with Future Breed Machine arpeggios

Hi, I would like some help on this please.

I have started really delving into theory again after 5 years playing guitar. I played the Clarinet up to grade 3 so I do know theory, but just not specific guitar related stuff such as chords.

Whilst I'm learning chord theory and construction I decided to try to work out an arpeggio from "Future Breed Machine" by Meshuggah

http://www.tandjent.com/meshtabs/dei/FBM_arpeggios.txt

What I'd like to know is what chords the arpeggios are based on and why they sound so god in that particular order. I have guitar Pro 5 and have recreated the riff, looked at the different scales that contain the notes of the arpeggios, and I've even used the chord editor to input the seperate arppegio notes, for instance 2 4 5 6, but it doesnt tell me the chord.

Can anyone help me? If this is explained to me it will go a long way to helping me understand chord theory and progression.

Thanks in advance

The first 2 look like inverted diminished 7th arps with roots anchored outside the chord for color, then the next looks like a minor added 9th arp. I'm prob all wrong, but I just wanted to try anyways...
