Does Syn sweep pick the lead in the Beast and the Harlot chorus?

Definitely alternate picked, which is strange because naturally you would sweep/economy pick it, and he’s said before that he doesn’t even like alternate picking.
Well I've noticed from trying to play it in the different picking styles that alternate happens to he the most efficient given the 4 notes and going right back to the g strings. It's almost too slow to sweep pick the lead comfortably. Something about the alternate picking just is easiest.

I was just curious cause I knew syn was way more into economy/sweep picking

    Why he doesn't like it, do you know?
    In their YouTube Breakdown video of Beast in the Harlot (part 1), Syn explains why he hates playing it live!
    Basically he explains that the “Syncopated” part of the song is difficult to play while singing backup vocals. Also how ridiculous the Solo is lol. He explains it best himself 😅

    Thanks, not sure if I saw that one I overlook things often and sometimes miss things totally.
