When Death Growling (And I understand this is natural to all who start doing this) Im starting to experience something similar to a sore throat. Its more like a sore muscle, than the kind of sore throat you get with a Cold.

Im only 16, and Im smart enough to stop when something starts hurting. This is natural to the growling process, So im going to lay off growling for a while until it stops. Im drinking Plenty of water when I Practice this, and Im not going over the top with it yet.

What Im really wondering is if there is anything I can do to Stop the soreness or make it pass quicker, besides cough drops, Gargling Salt water, and Oral Anastesia.

Ice? Massage? Doctor?

BTW, the Vocal Style im doing is various between Dethklok, Death, Nile, and Arsis, so Ive been experimenting. I understand it takes time, so Im willing to wait all it takes.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

Just stop when it hurts and keep practising, took me a month but I got to a point where it didn't hurt anymore

Pain when growling means you're doing it wrong. It shouldn't hurt, I had to change my technique like 4 times before I found a good sounding growl which didn't cause pain or irritability.

Nah, don't worry about it. As long as you warm up beforehand you should be fine.

Completely wrong. Pain will always come when your starting out. Push harder past the pain, don't stop when it starts hurting. Eventually the pain will go away.

As long as your voice has become deeper, if your a "late bloomer" I suggest you stop, otherwise its alright

Metal is a sub-genre of metalcore since metalcore is more popular therefore better.
