why is it impossible to find a singer?

Title pretty much says it all we need a singer and it impossible to find one under 30 that doesn't just scream and make guttural animal noises. So pit my question is,

should i stop being a lazy douche and learn how to sing and play myself or continue on this path of despair known as modern metal singers

I know right.

No singers.

No drummers.

I'd just say to do it yourself, unless you're writing music that's exceptionally demanding for the voice.

But that's the nice thing about writing your own music: you can write with your limitations in mind.

EDIT: Oh, you want a clean metal singer? Yeah, melodic metal can be pretty demanding, with all that reinforced falsetto and even occasionally belting.

Singing drummers are the worst choice for stage presence

Good singers are hard to find because:
- They have to sing in tune (not very rare)
- They have to have enough balls to sing in front of other people (very rare)

A good technique is to find a guy with balls, and make him work out his voice

Yup we play melodic metal so its a bit demanding to do both since i'm also playing lead and rhythm guitar but if anyone has tips on belting it would be really helpful

Is melodic metal the one with the tweedly-doo or the doodly-dee?

Honestly just do it yourself. At the very least you'll benefit from added musicianship and possibly become a great singer or even become solely a singer. Eventually you may find someone to replace you and then voila, you've got back up vocals now.
