Noise trick:
Start a recording off quiet for a few minutes which would naturally encourage the listener to turn it up. Maybe some muffled vocals or percussion.

Then out of nowhere, blast 0db sonic mayhem.
It will be loud.

Ok- so you let's say you are making noise- your mixers are constantly in the red, the amps are cranked, everything is so loud that your ears are going to be ringing, and then you stumble across a sound that just cuts through everything and appears even louder than everything else. (like i said before its usually a saw tooth-ish kind of of buzz).

this happens when
- your old noise and your new noise consist of different frequencies, and the new noise has more hi-mids
- you put a compressor on the old noise and sidechain it with the new noise
- your new noise is richer in odd harmonics, for example it's a saw tooth-ish kind of of buzz

the loudest i heard was junko's the void

perceived loudness is most important don't rely to heavily on audio metering,
even if your recording is up there around 0dbfs won't mean it will sound instantly 'noisey' or the 'loudest'
because the dbfs scale doesn't translate to how we hear loudness.
its psychoacoustics mane. - - as another person pointed out.

-
LUFS - readings - can give you a much more accurate representation of how our ear perceives loudness
