This is a good watch. Not a tutorial by any stretch, but very interesting:

It's been a while since I watched it, but as I recall he was running sounds through 4 compressors in parallel or something, plus doing some other crazy stuff.
I'm a big fan of the Doom soundtrack.. really cool. That's interesting to see how he created the sounds. To your comment, he's running it through a LOT of devices.. like 15 or so... some distortion pedals, an eq, several compressors, and other devices. I knew it wouldn't be easy, but that's a lot more than I expected!

I would think you can poor-man your way through it and construct a similar "array" with just effects VSTs rather than pedals. Wonder how that would sound.

Also, love how he snuck in some demonic symbols and other messaging into the music
