i am trying to get a sound similar to death from above 1979's lead singers distortion on his voice. i have a cheap distortion guitar pedal that could use
i wasnt sure because i was using my rp250 on a clean setting with my mic running into it and i accidently clicked the pedal to a distortion and it made a loud screech.
you need a vocal processor..

aside from actually growling/screaming the best effect i've found that won't produce excessive feedback like a distortion pedal is any processor effect that has a "bullhorn" sound.
try using a cheap over drive pedal. if you got the cash look into a vocal prossesor. i've never been huge fan of adding effects to vocals. you can achive distorting your own voice with scream and grawl techniqes.

You could try recording at "dangerously" high volume levels such that your vocals get clipped and distorted.

note: this only sounds good with analog methods, digital distortion sounds terrible.
