If anyone wants to hear the better version.


If you're down for the online band, I'll be in it. I play bass and guitar, and do backing vocals. I'm game if you are!

I play guitar as well, usually I write in Guitar Pro though, so if that works for you I think we could work something out! My email is TravBrie@live.com if you wanna email me something you've worked on previously.

I already have some pretty sick drum presets Merriman, but your triangle may come in handy

This is my mixing quality at the moment, as well as a small sample of my guitar ability :

I don't have any decent/recent recordings of me playing anything heavier

Hey guys! Can anybody give me advice on how to improve my higher range harsh vocals? I currently use the method taught here:

This technique is fine for my normal mids, lows, gutturals and exhaled pig-squeal type vocals, but whenever I try to use it for my highs, it just sounds... weird, like I've been stabbed and am moaning due to the intense pain (which is NOT what I want). I think the crappiness is caused by my throat, but I don't know what to do about it. Thanks in advance!

as a thank you to you guys for helping me find what works, here's the full thing:
https://soundcloud.com/filipe-onofr...oon-cover-fixed

that's an instrumental I found on youtube, loved the use of keyboards in it and made it my own thing with an extreme metal twist, check out the eerieness towards the end of the song, those were some lows I was not expecting to get. squeakiness is a bitch to control LOL

Hey guys, I posted an original a couple of months ago which was my first attempt at recording vocals. I took some advice from you guys, and wanted to share my newest recording, which is also my first vocal cover.

Any pointers on technique would be appreciated:

https://soundcloud.com/charlie-munr...orn-of-osiris-1

I tracked a main vocal, which I then created an artificial double using a doubler in my DAW. I also put an extra lows track and an extra highs track.

I found that I seem to struggle with highs a lot more, possibly because my voice is naturally deep.

Your highs sounded fine to me Random. Its a nice cover.

Darktimes, sounded very nice as usual.

No real criticisms fellas. For what you are doing, it sounds like it fits with the music and that's really all we can ask, right?

So i got into a new band. And im just a singer in it, and its horrible because i dunno what to do with my hands. Its a thrash band, so its basicly just gritty singing all the time, with the ocasional growl thrown in just for the hell of it. There is however a lot of high falsetto screams. How would one go about getting those to sound gritty? Right now im trying to do the same thing i do for normal singing, but im really not sure its right, since im always a bit hoarse after practice. Its getting better since im getting my stamina and grit techniqe back, but still, after about 90 minuts im not 100% anymore.

Sounds about right. Falsetto based stuff is pretty taxing on the voice. Keep working at it. You just need to strengthen the actual falsetto first. I know this guy has something that can be helpful, just don't have the time to sift through it right now:

His accent is ridiculous, but he's a great teacher.

I've found out my range is around Baritone/High Bass. So that gives plenty of range for me to try new stuff.

Definitely has the vibe and accuracy needed for the song.

One thing I noticed is I was actually paying attention to the backing track singing a slight bit more than your singing, but you did an amazing job with it. Not meaning to be crude, but perhaps tone down the original track and enforce more your take on it Keep up the very nice work

By the backing track do you mean the harmonies in the second verse? If so I also did those harmonies.
