Anybody know what Necrobutcher is using to get that distortion sound on Mediolanum Capta Est?
WOW!.. They are still around??? i wonder if they are still eating brain stew and buring down churches?.. Well I am pretty sure he used Marshal heads jcm 900's???...
Cheers, you all...
I know it is an very old thread...but does anybody know, what Mayhem - Necrobutche, their bass-player - used to get the fine, distorted overdriven Bass.Sound?!
...I love the distorted Bass on "live in Leipzig" ;-)
15-year old thread!
...you know it ;-) @MYLOWFREQ
I can't find anything anywhere. If I were to take a guess, overdrive pedal combined with natural overdrive through the Marshall head.
Actually, starting at about 3:02 on "Deathcrush" from Live the bass solo sounds more fuzz-y to me.
I have a feeling that they used whatever distortion pedal they found laying around back in the day whether it was built for guitar or bass.. most of the Norwegian black metal bands did not have 'bass heavy' bass tones. it was all about minimally produced 'cold' sounding bass tones that are distorted as hell.
I love the genre, still listen to burzum and darkthrone when I go to sleep, but I think that sound would not work with all most anything else I'd play.
I think so too....they used what was around...but I also hear a very special distortion sound on Bass on "live in leipzig" and it sounds like fuzz (ehx, muff)?!...
Maybe, Necrobutcher used an old EHX Muff...
Has anyone thought about the new Metal Muff as a Bass-Black-Metal-Machine?
After responding to this thread I started wondering if my Green Russian could get that Live sound. Haven't gotten around to trying yet though.
Ok, again, I'm mostly focusing on the Live in Leipzig album, but with P bass with tone knob cranked -> DG B3K w/ drive a 9:00 -> Big Muff GR w/ tone knob at 2:00 and sustain cranked -> amp EQ'd with treble and high mids boosted and bass and low mids cut got pretty close imho. Seems like what you need is a distortion-y fuzz with the highs boosted. I guess what you'd expect when trying to get the necro sound. Treble-y and buzzy. Probably why it so frequently gets lost in the mix.
Just saw this on Facebook, if you are still interested "So I played with Mayhem tonight, Necrobutcher's rig is an Epiphone LP bass -> TU-2 -> Metal Zone -> Ampeg SVT4/810. How's that!?"
