Michael Amott and the Maxon OD808 Overdrive

Godlyke Distributing - Thursday, April 12, 2018

I’ve been a huge fan of Michael Amott’s guitar work ever since he appeared on the genre-defining, early 90’s Carcass album “Necroticism – Descanting the Insalubrious.”

That being said, I was super-stoked when he dropped us a line this past fall to tell us that he had used the Maxon OD808 for all his guitar tracks on the latest Arch Enemy album, “Will to Power.”

“…Happy to say that we are done with mix and master now!  I ended up using a MAXON OD808 on rhythms and solos instead of the TS808 which I've used for a few years now.

I used my old Marshall jcm800's for leads and I don't even know what for rhythms as the mixing engineer re-amped the rhythm tracks...I do know he used the OD808 as well 'cos I saw it there when I was there for a couple of days at the end of the mix.”

We caught up with Michael at Arch Enemy’s NYC Playstation Theatre show to snag a “Guilty of Great Tone” mugshot and a pic of the OD808 in action in his live rig –
