Demilich Tone
 
Does anyone know how to get the classic Finnish Death Metal tone. I've been working on emulate the tone for a couple days now and no dice. I'm beginning to think it was either studio production or a specific pedal. Any help would be appreciated.

The bands in Finland used totally different gear, and the demos and albums were recorded in various studios. I'm not sure what you're looking for, but maybe finding the tone starts with coming up with the Finnish way of creating music itself.

I might be totally wrong, though. I can only speak for myself, but on the other hand, I lived in the scene back then.

Really? All the bands, I've heard from the early to mid 90's Finnish Scene have a very similar, crushing tone. I assumed that it must have been a regional thing, analogous Swedish Scene's situation.

It looks like creating the tone is going to take a little more footwork and experimenting. Rather than, shelling out 50 bucks for a Vintage HM-2.

I've found experimenting in the computer software Guitar Pro 3 and Amplitube 2 delivered some good soundalikes to those tones. As for using hardware (amps and stuff), why not ask Antti what he used?

You'd tell us wouldn't you, Cyuonut?

Sure. I used a shitty 100W Yamaha head with a self-made cabinet with four Eminence elements. The guitar was (and is) Charvel's 475, and the distortion pedal was Tokai's Metaldriver. Aki used completely different gear (Ibanez + Marshall + some Boss pedal, IIRC).

Thanks for the insight. I'm going to keep an eye out for that Tokai pedal, as I've never used one.
