basically, im a decent singer but my music style requires exhale screams quite a bit...


so... do you think i should stop and save my voice for the clean lines?

or just say F-it, and do both... hopefully not destroying my voice for the clean partts

edit: im a pretty good singer, can imitate alexisonfire well, just started screaming and having decent progress

If you are a good singer but a medicore screamer, fnid someone else. Or find a group with a style that matches yours better.

Learn the technique. It is very, very very important when doing those vocals.


Agreed.
I used to lead a metal band, and if you don't know the proper technique (which I only began to learn how to start the technique, nevermind master it, within a month and a half), you WILL destroy your vocal chords.
#10
if you can do both and pull it off well.. you will be high in demand imo.
DONT RISK IT, BUY A BASS AMP

If you scream properly, with good technique, it won't affect your speaking/singing voice at all. If you do hurt in your throat or anything similar, you're doing it wrong and should stop immediately.

Learn proper diaphragm control. If it feels like you have to fart or take a shit, your doing it right. I'm not even joking.

Screaming is the most ridiculous excuse for 'vocals' I have ever heard. Assuming that we are talking about screamo bands here.

I'm not being narrow minded at all. I love listening to all kinds of different voices. Anything from Louis Armstrong to Freddie Mercury (in terms of vocal range/tone). I just don't associate screaming with talent, because it isn't.

You may have misunderstood me. I meant screaming as in the screaming screamo bands scream. It's cool when other bands do it, because it doesn't have that disgusting tone.

2 archaic : a characteristic feature, aptitude, or disposition of a person or animal
3 : the natural endowments of a person
4 a : a special often athletic, creative, or artistic aptitude
b : general intelligence or mental power : ability
5 : a person of talent or a group of persons of talent in a field or activity

I personally find screaming highly irritating and just an excuse to make the music seem more 'heavy'.

Seriously, just sing.

Screaming is not special. Also, does that mean natural stuff like taking a shit are now deemed as talent?

And to the guy above me, that is exactly what I meant.

It might not be special. But it isn't something that just comes easy. You have to work for it, and develop a talent to do it right.

Stop being an ignorant fuckhead.

Why did this become a debate about screaming? TS was asking for advice; your argument helps in no way at all. If I voiced my opinion about screaming right here, would it help him? No.

But that's the thing. No-one can 'scream right' (again, I'm talking about screamo bands here, not your every now and then rock and roll scream).

You know who else screams? Brokencyde. Attack Attack.

I rest my case.

Do this or shut up; I don't give a **** if you like the music, that doesn't mean it doesn't take talent.

Brokencyde's screamer is terrible. But you know who else is terrible? Nick Jonas on guitar. Does that mean I can say guitar takes no talent and rest my case?

Well, I'm sorry if Brokencyde and Attack Attack have put me off screamo. Because to me, it all sounds the same.

As for the guitar argument, you can get hundreds of thousands of different tones and effects on a guitar. There's no comparison at all between screamers in screamo bands and guitars. Guitar is used in loads of pop music. Screamo is used in screamo.
