If you have the time, read the screaming/growling thread (at least 10 pages or so). This question has been answered a thousand times.

to me your screams still contain an audible true note contained within the scream. As such, you must scream on pitch or at least tune it. Your scream is more akin to distortion to my ear.

Could be your not used to it. Could be its wrong. Hard to tell in a vacuum really. If its a cough reflex, you are irritating your cords.

Try drinking some more. Sounds like your throat is irritated and this can easily be from being too dry. Remember, all that air steals your moisture quick.

Prehydrate well before you scream. It...

It's Metalcoresque fry in the vein of early Killswitch and I can hear a lot of similiarity to Linkin Park. It's probably loud but it's really hard to tell with modern compression.

Most likely it's...

What you need is to get some overtones going to complement the meat of the screams (literally, the meat from your future vocal cords).

That's why I suggested the fry "filter." All it is is a...

Learn quiet, standard fry. Then sing through the fry. You set it up like a filter. Some call it power fry but it's the just singing with intensity through the fry filter. Takes time and work.
