aggressive chaotic repulsion-style lead

Anybody care to discuss this topic? I've been trying to move away from anything that sounds remotely neo-classical or melodic in the traditional sense and more towards a raw old school death metal style of soloing. Perfect example would be the lead work on Repulsion's lp - horrified.

i've been working on ripping through diminished patterns with a hint of harmonic minor here and there and trying to add wammy bar dives and harmonics. It seems ridiculously hard to pull this style off without it sounding like a trainwreck.

I'm looking for any advice on scale patterns, runs, wammy tricks, sweet spots for harmonics, good instructional youtube vids or even just guitarists or bands that play in this style. Completely sick of necrophagist sounding solos that are full of minor arpeggios and sound like a fancy midi file.
