Nah, folks can listen to anything they want. No discrimination there, I just really hate the tone/message/largely everything about those groups. Doesn't mean you have to too.

If anybody is looking for a new inspiration, definitely check out Fallujah's new album, The Flesh Prevails.

It almost killed me with the mix of brutality and getting hit right in the feelz.

Hyperglottal Compression. It uses balance of the vocals folds and compression to cause focused vibration of the upper pallette. Also, look at singing with Rasp as well.

Your moving lots of air through thinning folds. Additionally, you probably raise your larynx, and possibly topping out your voice box. Both can cause pain/discomfort.

Maybe, but it sounds too smooth for false cord. It doesn't have the rumble.

Heafy probably does fry but he has no clue. He's been asked in interviews.

The fat kid just isn't adding any voice to it. Both are fry.

The guy ion the right just has a better grasp of the tone and can add a touch of voice at the ginning of phrases.

I think the third scream is just a thinned out FC but if it works better for you hang ontit and keep at the fry. Did you listen to Lee's Demo? There are good tidbits in there.

You're pretty hesitant. I can tell you are shy about it.
