Hello guys,
I was wondering how to achieve a guitarsound that is like in funeral doom metal, and i am talking specific about the band ┬┤Mistress of the dead┬┤: http://youtu.be/pMtEzAdP_EU?t=4m22s.
It's a great mournfull sound that I like to play. Can someone tell me more about how to achieve this? what kind of amp-settings would be necessary?
I am not that handy with the settings yet.

I hope to hear from you.
Thanks!

Start by tuning down low, use lots of gain, boost the bass and mids lots, the treble not as much, turn the volume up loud, and use a lot of reverb. That should give you a good base to adjust from and find something you like.

Yea tune down, play with reverb/echo.

Actually I think you should turn the mids and bass down and the treble up. Pretty sure it's a solid state amp with a lot of gain. I think it has a bit of chorus on too. And of course some long delay and reverb.

Yeah, I think Der Einsame is probably right about those leads... but then there is something much more bassy going on throughout. I can't tell if it's just a very downtuned guitar or the bass guitar itself. Either way, I wouldn't expect to get all that sound from one tone.

Thank you guys for the replys! It's really helpfull.

I have tried a downtuned an hightuned mid-setting, both gave a sound that could be usefull (guitar is tuned down). but in combination with high pre-gain, the sound went to bassy. The amp-setting that is mostly in the right direction is 'JSX' I believe, with a chorus-effect. the post-gain is as high as possible for a good reverb. The structure is now much better, but the sound is hard to achieve. Are there any more options to get that high pitched/whiny sound?
