I was wondering, does anyone happen to know what exactly the really "heavy" (can't think of a better word to describe it at the moment) part in the intro of Starlight is? I think that it might be a heavily distorted bass, but I'm not sure... anyways, I was just curious. Please let me know if you know what it is!

Apparently it's a Big Muff distortion pedal. There's plenty of distorted bass riffs on their earlier albums too. "Absolution" has some brilliant examples on it.
