A lot of guitar players do that. I don't really have a problem with it. It's helpful when recording to sound cleaner if you're a little sloppy on a part.

Do they put the hair ties around or underneath the guitar strings?

I'm assuming over the strings so it kind of mutes the strings if you mess up. But I dunno. I've never done it.

On top. It usually is there to prevent notes from ringing out or from hitting an unwanted note mainly the open string notes. A lot of guitar players big on sweep arpeggios will use the hair tie. I think it can be okay to practice/record with, but of course it'd be better if the guitarist could play live without it. It's still not like you put a hair tie on the guitar and you can play like a god, but it definitely helps A LOT.

I've seen some other big metal bands doing it too, but whatevz. I'd rather have them cheat a bit instead of actually sounding sloppy live

I don't really see it as cheating. If that's what they do to get their sound on their records then why not do it live too?

I'll maybe make a video one day of me playing with and without a hair tie while playing the same riffs the same way. There may already be videos out there of other people doing the same thing.

I'd rather just play it and have it come out however it does. I hate it when bands are super tight and sound perfect... it just seems fake. I dunno. I like music with flaws and a bit of realism to it.

Faith Will Fail was pretty much nothing but the first takes on guitars and vocals. Just the way I like it, dog.

So I finally got Jex Thoth - Blood Moon Rise delivered yesterday. On first listen I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't as overtly rifftastic as I was expecting. But the more I've listened to it, the more I like it. Will be up there when I make my AOTY2013-list for sure.
