As far as death metal vocals are concerned, I pretty much only do midrange. In Impaled, Sean is handling the highs and Ross lays out the lows. Since it can be really taxing on your vocal cords in the beginning, I would suggest practicing little by little so you do not totally blow out your voice. After awhile you'll find your comfortable range(s) and your vocal cords will become stronger. Eventually you'll grunt/scream/etc. like some kind of war beast, or whatever appropriate vernacular you'd fancy.

Thanks for the tips.

I guess having good death metal vocals comes with time. I've been practicing a while now but I still have a little trouble. Also, I heard that your not supposed to use your throat. Is that true?

I wonder how Sean does those screams, I know the growl and the hardcore scream but I can't replicate how Sean screams, fucking cool.

I am not sure if it is true, but I can tell you I use my throat. I only don't use my throat when I am actually singing; it's almost all from the diaphragm then.

I don't know either, but it sure hurts when I try to do it.

Get a pitchshifter.

Sean's vocal style isn't hard once you get it right, just take one of their cds with you when you go drive somewhere and just practice till you can't anymore. Hurts at first though :(

I don't really think about the way I scream/growl anymore, I just fucking do it.
Keep practising, and you'll find a technique you find comfortable.

Use your diafragm, your voice has to come from your guts, not your throat. In this way your throat won't hurt and ache. Another thing, DON'T CHEAT!!! Cupping the mic is cheating, anyone can get low with their hands around the mic. Use your own voice!!! Luck.

I use my throat and don't use my vocal cords at all really. When I've tried to use my vocal cords, like doing hardcore type vocals, it blows my voice out after about half an hour. It's more like a gurgling coming from the back of the throat, near where the tongue begins.

I can go as low as Gurge in Lord Gore to Sean in Impaled. It really is just practice and training your throat. The one question I want to know is...how does Ross do those vocals on Mondo Medicale? They sound almost like he's gurgling through a telephone.

I use my diaphram (sp?) for high screams, I can do em for about 10 seconds and they sound pretty good (I need to warm up for a shitload of time to get them right though), but I growl from my throat so I only last for about 4-5 seconds. And if I try to growl using the high scream way it ends up sounding way too metalcore.

I gurgle liquid Drano every morning. It keeps my voice sounding truly grim.

A friend of mine just sent me some videos with brutal vocals. I find the quality is real good - this guy seems to be able to distort his voice effortlessly (no cupping!) and control the tone really well; great technique! Plus, it's heavy as faaaaack:

and

:eplus2:


By the way, these are recording sessions from Oath to Vanquish's upcoming album due out later this year. Can't wait!!



P.S. I hope these links work...
