Im not bashing screamo bands but wtf! Id say about 80% of the bands I go see the music will start Im hell yeah this sounds awesome then the singers opens his mouth BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! RURURUJEJAEDFEJE. I cant understand a damn thing half of them say and its mostly yelling. It kills the music for me. I dont mind the yelling but when yo ucant understand anything whats the point. Why are so many bands just yelling and sceaming thinking it sounds good? Has everyone gone tone deaf? You can have heavy music with someone that can actually sing last time I checked. Most of the "singing" I hear anymore sounds more like some wild animal getn skined alive. Guess Im just old school and like real vocals not throat noises.

if it ruins music for you then dont go to see them/listen to them, pretty obvious really

Just cause you don't like them doesn't make them any less "real". It's a matter of taste. I like growled vocals (not the Core-ish screams though) but I also appreciate (some) clean vocals, I'm just more picky with cleans.

Yeah I totally agree. Bring Me The Horizon are just funny to listen to because it's so bad.

does any1 know where I can get a fender les paul? i always only see 1 or the other but i want one thats both.

There are tons of bands who can do hybrid vocals, Christian Alvestam from Scar Symmetry can do growls and he has technique with his cleans. What's wrong with wanting added aggression in music? Music doesn't have to have singing in it, or instrumentals wouldn't exist. There are no "real" vocals. Music itself wouldnt exist if you had to put vocals in every little instrumental. You can't understand shit in Opera most of the time, some people can barely understand Eddie Vedder even though he plays rock and doesn't do growls or Extreme Music screams, etc. It does sound good, maybe not to you but to others, it's for people who like the added aggression, it fits the musical environment.

Just listen to something else.

why the **** would you listen to music you don't like?


If you're into Jonas Brothers, don't go to a metal concert. Simple really. It doesn't take a ****in rocket scientist to figure it out.

It is pretty lame.. especially when you look up some of the lyrics online youre like "WTF??!?!?"

Put a piece of tape on the headstock and write "Gibson" on it.
If done properly, this should quadruple your sustain.

Yeah I hate screaming too. I feel bad for good musicians who spend years getting good at their instrument of choice just to have a lead singer getting all the credit for sounding like a chain smoker. I think it pretty much debases vocals even more than autotune. I think the only guy who can pull it off is the guy from Devil Wears Prada. And I don't need anyone posting that "I just havent heard some of the good ones". I have heard these "good" ones, they dont make the cut imo.

maybe there's a correlation between how they felt writing it and why they screamed it... some shit just isn't right when you sing it.

Getting good at screaming does take skill you know. Surely the same could be said about people who can just naturally sing well? They get loads of credit when they might not have done much to be able to sing.

Wait...you say you have heard "good" ones but then you say The Devil Wears Prada is the only group who can pull it off?

all the screamo/other-music-that-involves-screaming fanboys here made me laugh.

TS has a point here, screaming and stuff like that are quite popular amongst the 'heavy' bands out there, so he has the right to give his opinion on that.

Yeah there's only like, what, 3 bands in the world? And they are all screamo bands. Tough luck, TS. Maybe a fourth band will pop up soon that you will like.

this is utter bollocks, nobody is 'naturally able' to sing well. Sure, some people have better voices than others, or are very talented, but everyone needs practice to become a real good singer.

Yeah so foreign artists should just quit writing music because Americans can't understand them. There are also tons of clean artists who have vocals that are barely audible. If you listen to music just for vocals, go buy a Lady Gaga CD?

i never said they were amazingly unique. i like their music, that's all.

If you're talking about the technicality of the music it isn't an opinion. PTH makes BMFV look like that "whammy bar without a whammy bar" kid.
