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.

I completely agree on how important compression is. A dry, uncompressed growl track in a mix can sound like awful dog balls.

Noice, Kimino.

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.
