some of slayers finest work uses the chromatic scale, i. e. At Dawn They Sleep and just about every other breakdown on Hell Awaits

Haha, the "devil's scale" is the omission of the 3rd in the chord. The 3rd would be the third note in the scale of the partilular chord that you are holding. A "power chord" is really not a chord since it is only the 1st and the 5th. Some books and some people consider a chord with two or more notes in the chord. Most books and some people say that a chord is at least three notes. Thus, a major chord would be the 1st, the 3rd, and the 5th; a minor chord would be the 1st, the flatted 3rd, and the fifth. The "power chord' is simply the 1st and the 5th. By omitting the 3rd, that makes it "the devil in music" since a chord is considered major or minor by what the 3rd is: natural 3rd = major chord; flatted 3rd = minor chord. There's not a devil's scale. This is what you meant when you asked.

A "power chord" is actually a perfect fifth interval.
Learn all the interval especially perfect fourths and minor thirds and major thirds if you're creating unhappy sounding metal music ! And augmented perfect fifths and diminished perfect fifths (which are augmented perfect fourths).

Hmm, to the guy that said the Lydian mode is evil sounding... That is one of the three out of seven modes which are major. Actually not really evil sounding. I think I could make it sound evil though just buy picking it a certain way (or maybe you could too), but I personally like the Phrygian mode better and think this is more metal sounding or evil sounding if played right.

chekc it out....play around with these notes....

|----------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------7---9-----|
|---------------------7---9---10-------------|
|-------7---8---10---------------------------|
|---0------------------------------------------|

Memorize this simple pattern and use it all around. This one is E Phrygian (above)

Try this one....A Phrygian:

|----------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------5---7---------|
|----------------5---7---8-------------------|
|---5---6---8--------------------------------|
