An idea for Chris Barretto and the Periphery guys

FIRST…. A short intro:
The mainstream success of bands such as Slipknot and Linkin Park introduced the otherwise unaware public into heavy music, creating a huge rise in the popularity of the metal genre, and thus an immense interest in the more aggressive singing styles. So much so, that vocal tuition DVD’s and books specialized in ‘metal’ style screaming and singing have now filled a previously trivial market (Melissa Cross’ Zen of Screaming DVD). Hundreds of (rather shitty) ‘how to scream’ tutorials now flood Youtube, all the whilst, more and more people are wanting advice on a singing style largely considered too damaging to engage in.

Would your new singer Chris, be interested in recording a video of him singing/ screaming along to a periphery song, then finish it with a short video detailing when/ how he got into aggressive vocal styles, how he went about beginning and developing this technique, and any tips/ ideas that he would consider useful to the aspiring screamer (minus the obvious “support from the diaphragm, drink lots of water, don’t over-exert your chords” type stuff).

• As I said before… literally TONS of people flood the net, wanting to know this sort of shit. Producing a video like this could potentially pull in many more listeners.
• Many people are still unfamiliar with Chris’ capabilities as a vocalist, and still whine like a bitch about Casey leaving, producing a video such as this would introduce and familiarize fans with your new vocalist.
• Chris is probably one of the best vocalists I have ever heard, and I know many people would like to hear his ‘voice outside of studio’
• I would imagine that producing this would not require a huge amount of time. Chris sings/ screams to a song, talks a bit… badda bing badda boom UPLOAD ONT TUBE
• There are lots of tutorials on Youtube, however none are by experienced, professional vocalists.

So anyway, I realize this idea will be largely ignored… but what the hay, if you don’t ask, you don’t get. Keep up the good work guys, something tells me you are going to be very successful in the near future!
