Ah, that's awesome It's very unique. I actually thought this was false chord, but thanks for pointing me in the right direction! <3

Not nearly as unique as you'd think. It's just from the punk/pop-punk era. Still sounds cool though!

Could you link me to some good guide for similar fry singing? I just can't get it out, tried almost every youtube tutorial. When I scream, it's either too quiet or inconsistent, like very very bad scream.

Not really. Zen of Screaming series is worthless as far as "experts" go. Nothing has assisted in my learning. I think it's fiddling with it until you get or give up really. I have yet to unlock my fry. Others here will only be able to tell you to get the fry sound and then learn to use it as a filter to sing through. Rather, use the fry as an effect on your full voice.

Helpful? Nope, not at all. But there in lies the problem with screaming. It's a very personalized and cognitive mechanism. You either get it or don't and no one can really "show you" perse.

I'd suggest to continue to work on getting a high quality sound without worrying at all about volume. After the sound quality is high, then think about ways to increase volume, that way you at least have something workable and something to continue to work towards.

The biggest issue with fry is that it is not intuitive at all. When you are false cord screaming, you are normally doing something aggressive and it just feels natural. To learn fry you have to go against how most people learn to phonate, ie-decreasing the tension of the vocal cords to the point of crackling but not enough to let air pass straight through. It's just less natural until you get it, from what I gather.

Yeah, I also heard that fry is a lot more quiet, lower volume than false chord.

Depends. Some folks are quiet. Many pro guys are not quiet with fry.

Hey guys, quick question. I'm running into issues with my voice getting progressively weaker as I scream(as in my clean vocals get weaker). Please note that at no time when I scream do I encounter any pain. I also drink plenty of water and don't consume alcohol. I don't smoke cigarettes, but I am 420 friendly on a semi daily basis. Has anyone else run into this problem? What can I do to help stop this? Thanks in advance for your help guys.
