    I don´t know if someone asked about this (I did a proper search BTW).

    Dan What amps were used on Nightmares Made Flesh?

    the tone is amazing, how did you get it?

    cheers!

    Don't forget Jens Bogren engineered NMF ;) Dan recorded guitars for his tracks, not for the other 8. Jens probably has a bigger part in how the guitars sound.

    The sound was created using a BOSS HM-2 into a Marshall DSL50 50W head and a 4X12" Marshall cabinet. Jens miked it with a bunch of different mikes. SM57, Royer ribbon and AKG 414, might have been a MD421 there too, or a U87..don´t remember. he blended all those onto one track and tracked that.

    Was it quad tracked? If so, did he use anything else for the second tracks?

    RTC was a bit weirder. I used a HM-2 into a Digitech GNX2 preamp. I used the Marshall-amp and Speakeremulation. Later on I used the Free Filter plug-in to "rip" the guitartone EQ from Left Hand Path (using the Intro from "Drowned") and applied that to my own "try". It turned out really broken and like a chainsaw ear fuck!!! Just the way I wanted it!!

    I could always get SOOO painfully close to duplicating RTC tone,But something was always missing.Now that i know,my life is officially complete.:worship:
    Thanks for keeping your fans "on the inside".

    The Free Filter Plug-in? Is that the name of the filter or do you just mean a random free filter?
    Stupid question perhaps. Ursäkta i sånafall.
    You did an amazing job on that album.

    Howdy. The best EQ ripper at the moment is Voxengo Curve EQ. 60 bands of stealing nice curves!! I just ripped off the Clandestine guitarsound for Entrails and it sounds so close it is spooky ;) Cannot play with it inserted though, it adds tons of latency :/

    See ya

    I'm also a CurveEQ user :rolleyes:
    Allthough I mostly rip with only 7 bands.
    Btw. Dan I have the Entrails demo tape. On that they have been really close to the old hm-2 sound also.
    I wonder what you cooked there for the new one :)

    I appreciate this is a very old thread now but I'm currently writing a dissertation on the use of distortion in Metal recordings and was wondering if I could get more detail on how the HM-2 was used. Did you have the gain all the way up on the pedal or was the Hm-2 just used to 'shape' the tone with the gain high on the amp? I know a lot of guitarists do just use the HM-2 for its tone and have the gain very low. Thanks \m/

    When it comes to Swedish Death Metal it's usually all the knobs of the HM-2 on 10 and I'm pretty sure I've read Dan saying that that's the way it was used in another thread.

    Yeah I'm aware most just stick everything on 10, both guitarists in my band do exactly the same (listen to the track I linked in my first post). Have also referenced Ekeroth already, just trying to find evidence of someone with a slightly different approach that will give me an argument for experimentation :)

    Thanks guys!

    Huh. Where are you writing your diss? I am, too (but in something completely unrelated to music). A dissertation with Swano... fuck, I need to change fields.

    Ha, not specifically on Swano :p It's on the impact of distortion when recording down-tuned guitars and as the HM-2 is about as bad-ass as a distortion pedal can get I'm definitely including it :)
