VST/Fx to make vocals sound drier/raspier in tone?

I'm mixing an old school death metal song at the moment, and I have two vocal takes I'm working with since I'm collaborating with a friend from another state via the internet. Anyways, the first take is dry and raspy, which sounds good for the old school effect, but the second take has a lot more warmth and wetness to it, and I'm wondering if it's possible to throw a VST or a filter on it to make it sound dry and raspy like the first take. Thanks for taking the time to read this!

If there is that bog a difference between the sessions then I doubt you could blend it well wth just fx

I know some of the Antares stuff (Avox Evo) can do allot of unique stuff to a voice. Look into it.

you could use any low pass filter to isolate your highs, creating a crispy type sound, or you could try any sort of guitar amplifiers that showcase distortion, that will give your lyrics a raspy distorted sound......thats what i usually do to create that certain raspy sound i believe youre talking about......i had to be creative, because the programs i have have literally almost no vocal effect options.........
hope this helps
