Tell his parents that I'm sorry, but I'm practising whether they think he's deranged or not.

She had her period.

What you do is:

1.Get vocal lessons, learn how to sing properly first (assuming he can't, no offence)

2. In said vocal lessons learn, and then practise like hell, how to control one's breathing - proper technique is the second most important part of good singing, after confidence.

3. When ready to progress to techniques the voice isn't really designed for, find a teacher that can pass on extreme techniques properly and prevent one damaging one's voice.

4. 'Proper technique' generally requires little actual volume from the scream or growl - just enough to be audible to a microphone. Most metal vocalists bring the mic closer when screaming/growling as it is quieter than when they sing normally (properly).

5. Avoid the early hardcore style of vocals, where many 'vocalists' ruined their voice by literally screaming. Imagine how long their voices last after screaming at the top of their lungs several nights a week for months on end.


P.S If I see someone asking this again in another new thread, they won't get any helpful advice and I'll purposely guide them to destroying their vocal chords.

tell him to learn to scream like the guy from Pestilence on Consuming Impulse... greatest screaming vocals ever. Not the high pitched pussy vocals out there now.

I heard somewhere that it's really unhealthy to even attempt to start screaming before like 16 or 17 but I have no idea if that's true or not. Just heard it somewhere....

Yeah it's not terribly good to go for certain sounds until your voice has dropped.

He's a Mink, you can't expect him to be perfect with Human Language Skills.

I growl or sing (no, it's not soooo loud) when I'm walking, let's say, in a park or something and no-one is near me. That may sound freaky, but at least yoou think no-one is hearing. ^^

And if his parents are out, can't he do it then?

And by the way, tell him to check out Melissa Cross and Zen of Screaming. Please.

If he drinks a bottle of Scotch a day, and eats 20 packets of salt and vinegar crisps and smokes forty fags, he wont need to practice screaming, he will just radiate brutality.

^I'm pretty sure you just described what I'd do if I had no care for my health at all.

In a pillow or wait until his parents leave. I always played crazy noise-rock feedback as loud as possible when my parents were gone.
