I've been listening to a lot of Behemoth and Nile type stuff reccently, and I really like the sound of the solos. I'm wondering if anyone knows what kinda scales are used for that style thing.
Phrygian Dominant and Harmonic Minor.
I'm pretty sure Nile uses Phrygian and Phrygian Dominant modes a lot. Sounds very oriental/ egyptian. And for Behemoth i don't know.. Could be harmonic minor.. btw-If you like exotic sounding death metal you might wanna give a listien to a band called Aeternam..
You could also try double harmonic major (often called Byzantyne scale)
