I'm looking for really over the top, harsh distortion plugins. Nothing like decapitator, more like Audio damage GRIND. any suggestions?

Buy a real guitar pedal, a bad cheap one... behringer super fuzz 300, for instance. Everything about it is just f**king nasty... or if you want to go upscale nasty, there you go...

Ohmicide?
A well-behaved signature.

As was mentioned, Ohmicide, Trash2 are nasty, camelphat3 is still a decent one, the new waves ones arent bad, when run hot. Filterbank3 can really fk a sound up. XCTR is not bad when run hot too.

The original Quadrafuzz is nasty as fk, the list goes on.

For the cruellest, most harsh distortion, you'll want to use a waveshaper. Plenty of options, Trash has already been mentioned. Blue Cat have one. FL Studio's own is good but didn't report latency the last time I checked. Ohmicide can take you there and everywhere in between. I think Maul is based on waveshaping too.

If you have FL Studio and you want waveshaping distortion, this might help: https://unaspectedstudios.com/Raze.htm Free download of a bundle of waveshaping presets and many Patcher programs which use envelope followers and EQ along with waveshapers in series and parallel to make the distortion more reactive. Enjoy!

I'd agree with Trash 2 and Ohmicide. There was an old freeware distortion FSU made in Synth Edit called Analtortion, that was very cruel sounding.
