My bands website^

Follow the link for songs and tell me what you think of the vocals. Most of the tracks on there are scratch recordings and rough crap we threw together in rehearsals. We felt it was stupid to try to charge people for a demo if we are going to just post all the good material on the net for free, so we only put up rough recordings.

Any comments on the vocals would be appreciated, but please try to be constructive.

I'm in a mathy/spazzy/screamy band that shares vocals. I've written lyrics to go over a particularly difficult part but am having a hard time singing out of rhythm with the riff. Any advice?

i play guitar, and drums, and do vocals. i do drums and vocals in a grind/black metal band that im just starting with a friend, of mine, and i play guitar and vocals in a death/thrash band thats been going for about two years. we dont have anything online, or else i'd post something, sorry. i try to do everything with my vocals and i do pretty good, i think. my black vocals are more of the intense, higher, but not shrieky black vox, although i can do varg esque shrieks, i just think it sounds bad, and its hard to do. my death vox are medium/low, not really low, like disgorge's vocalist, but low enough to be brutal. i guess thats a good enough introduction.

Greetings.

I currently sing in a Metal band.
I typically perform using a deep Frank Mullen-esque growl, but I find a boring vocalist ruins what would be good music, so I like to mix it up with higher-pitched screams and the occasional gut-shredding gurgle. I used to do a ton of inhaled vocals, but I've shyed away from them lately. Call me crazy, but I dig the harshness of exhaled growls more than the bassey undulation of inhaled ones.

I have some shitty recordings of my vocals on http://www.hxcmp3.com/bands/15444/

the Devourment one is a good performance, but horrible sound quality.

Hey all. I just joined so I'll introduce myself.

I'm a female who lives in a hole called Adelaide, in South Australia.

I'm 14, and am/want to be, an extreme vocalist. I also play bass on occasion.

I sound like a mix between Angela Gossow of Arch Enemy, and Randy Blythe of Lamb of God (So I've heard). But I think I pretty much sound like Angela Gossow.

I'm dying to be in a band. I'm in talks with a few people.

Question: What does everyone here think of female extreme vocalists? Who are the best ones, and who should just give up? (Sorry if this has been asked before).

I have only one good-quality recording of my vocals, and would be happy to post it or send it to people if requested. But I think it would be cool if there was a post where everyone posted a recording of themselves.

Anywho, Feel free to e-mail me or add me to MSN. =-)

Aspiring vocalist looking for techniques. [12 Feb 2005|02:21pm]

poedwageworker
Hey everyone, I'm wanting to get into doing growling and/or high-pitched screeching/shrieking. I was just wondering if you guys had some good techniques to exercise vocal cords and to possibly get a lower growl tone. The growl I can do now kinda sounds like the guy from Embalming Theatre ( look 'em up at www.razorbackrecords.com), but, it hurts to do it. So, I'd like to do that and if possible lower.

Thanks in advance.

So I bought a Sennheiser e835 today. I needed a stand and they had a pile of them on the floor for $20/piece so I grabbed one. It's a ProLine Microphone Boom Stand.

I've never actually owned a mic or stand before and I didn't realize that the stand might not be capable of holding the mic. Aren't these things standard? There's no way to connect the mic to the stand. The little dealie that the Mic came with has a screwhole that's probably a good inch too small to fit the screw that's attached to the stand.

Does anyone know what piece I need to get my stand to hold my mic?

Awesome mic, no way to hold it with the bass in my hands! What to do?

anyone know a good way to mooderate air flow from the lungs when grunting?

i tend to lose my breath after short periods of outward grunting...

funny how inwards sound cooler but are a lot easier.

Hey everyone, i'm new here. I think this place is a good idea, there's very few resources for eatreme vocalists. Anyway, i'm a vocalist and bassist for two bands at the moment, Norgathaal (my blackmetal band) and Alpha Crucis (my melodic death band) I like most kinds of metal, except all that nu-metal crap and really extreme death metal ( I just think it goes beyond brutal and gets a bit kitsch sometimes) at the moment i'm really into Darkthrone, Isengard, Dark Tranquility, Children of Bodom, and Emperor. I listen a shitload more bands but i cant be arsed with typing them all out.

I play bass in hardcore-punk-metalcore band and I also handle backup vocals and screams. I can get a very deep growl, but when I try to get a nice midrange to high scream, I usually crap out and make funny noises. I don't feel like I have enough volume or power to do so. So I would really appreciate if anyone could give me tips on how to get the sound I am going for.

Examples: Atreyu, Norma Jean, Killswitch Engage, Every Time I Die

Thanks,
\m/Dustin\m/

Growling in [06 May 2004|07:16pm]
sylvarius
I play in the underground band Pulverizer.

What can I add to the growling community?
No idea really. I have growled in some songs.

What kind of growling is the most popular one?
I've done different kinds of growling from the thrash screeching thing, to death metal growling.

I'm one of those low/high/low/high sentence screamers.. and my high sounds like a pterodactyl for a lack of better words, but my low is only at pitbull level.. I need some advice on how to destroy it like Will from Mortician. I don't wanna end up going low like Cock And Ball Torture or anything though.. Just lower than your average death metal growl.

GREETINGS SCUM. ANSWER THIS IRRELEVANT QUERY; WHAT TECHNIQUES DO YOU USE TO ACHIEVE AN ESPECIALLY FOUL TONE WHEN SPEWING FORTH THY PROFANITIES? I FIND THAT AN OUTRAGEOUSLY FECUND SWEATSOCK PROCURED FROM A LOCKER-ROOM FLOOR, WADDED UP AND PLACED IN THE CRAW, PRODUCES A PUNGENT GURGLING WRETCHEDNESS THAT CAN'T BE DUPLICATED. BLUUURGH...
I BELIEVE THE SINGER OF BELPHEGOR HAS STUMBLED ONTO THIS METHOD, AFTER LISTENING TO THEIR LAST SUPPER ALBUM, AND NOW I NEED ADVICE ON HOW TO EXPAND ON THIS ...

Hey, i am a singer/songwriter, interested in all areas of vocal sickness. I have a very high-pitched shrill type of scream, but i only hit it "pulling", tightening my throat... when i scream outwards, it's usually diluted with other lower tones. Does anyone here know any tricks or tips on training a shriek? \../
