Nailing a few tones with the Boss HM-2

Greetings fellas, this is going to be one of my first posts on the UG community, after lurking around for a few years I have finally decided to register and hop on the bandwagon.

I'm having a little bit of trouble trying to nail some tones on the HM-2. I tried cocking it up in front of the 5150's clean channel, and with the ''all knobs dimed'' setting it is instant Entombed/Dismember-ish Sunlight Studios chainsaw tone indeed.

But I'm curious about the Fredman Studios tone that was used in the Jester Race, The Gallery, Whoracle albums. I know that In Flames used the amp in front of an old marshall valvestate (the ones that did not suck, I think 8080 or 8100 ?) and I'm really trying to achieve that tone, but I guess the guitar tracks have a heavy post-eq editing... Any advices on this one ?

And the Bloodbath tone, not the tone on RTC but more like the one on Nightmares Made Flesh... Is that a HM-2 in front of a JCM800 crunch channel? What settings did they probably use? I fiddled a lot with the knobs, but the tones that I got close were only the chainsaw tone and the Hail of Bullets tone from On Divine Winds...

Thanks a lot from now on, and sorry for teh wall of text.

Well honestly you probably are better off with the 5150s distortion.
If you REALLY want that tone you need the 8100 to achieve it. If i remember right it has a lot to do with the contour knob on the amp dialing in the sound.

Oh. Yeah the 5150 is very nice for modern sounds, but I really wanted to nail those two tones i've mentioned.

The tone on TJR/Whoracle does have the sharp mids and highs of the HM-2, but its nothing like a chainsaw, it does not have that roaring razorlike shriek that the pedal does, I guess its due to the contour knob like you said.
