I have 2 pedals now: a multieffect pedal and a distortion pedal... The logic question now is: which one do I connect (closest to) my guitar and which comes second?

Oh the reason why I bought the distortion pedal is that the multipedal didn't have the black metal sound I wanted, but it has some other nice effects I want to keep

Distortion usually goes first.

If I connect them to eachother and I put the amp on, it starts making a terrible noise :s
Is this normal? Maybe I can't connect them to eachother?

is your guitar connected to the input of the first pedal?

does the patch chord go from the OUTPUT of the first pedal to the INPUT of the second pedal?

this is purely a guess, but have you got the distortion on the multi fx switched off??? if your running distortion in a pedal AND in the multi fx, that would make it noisy.
Cursed to one day crash and burn because we fly so god damn high.

It's some sort of squealy noise... Really terrible... Like a Nazgul or something :p
And no, the distortion on the multi is turned off...

Is it only when you play notes, or all the time?
Does is still happen when your guitar volume is off?
Have you tried each pedal separately to make sure they're both good?
Make sure the levels on each pedal are somewhere around the middle, they don't need to be all the way up.

The sound kicks in when I put my amp on...
And when I put my guitar volume to 0, it still makes this sound...
The pedals are both good!

Is it feedback? Turn both the pedals off and see.

Since your volume is on zero I don't think it is feedback. Just in case though you might as well try standing farther away from the amp, and make sure the pickups are facing away from it, see if it still happens.

Also remember current can only flow in one direction, make sure your guitar is plugged in the INPUT side, and the side leading towards the amp is OUTPUT. It sounds like you know this, just bringing it up for good measure.

If thats not the problem then I dunno what it would be. The pedals are working by themselves, it only happens when you use both plugged in at the same time? Do they work when they are both plugged in but one pedal is turned off?

Try using different cables and changing the batteries also.
