When I go to a show and there's a band playing with no vocals, I don't like them. Unless they're really good.

Trivium doesnt really use vocals. at least i dont think. A buddy i snowboard with plays trivium all the time and the only time i've heard lyrics are on covers.

You dont have to have vocals. But if you dont have vocals, you SHOULD compensate with more talented/complex/creative riffs. you dont have to, though. Depends on how you put it together.

Well where I live(suburbs of philly) I can't find one person to sing for my metal band? I found one guy who is 23 and we are all 18. Is this weird?

What?

Trivium have vocals on almost every track. In fact I can only think of 1 Trivium song that doesn't have vocals.

It's considered weird to the majority. But since it's music, and with music, anything goes, then yeah its fine.

Vocals do help though.

nah. i almost ended up in a band with a 19 year old, gay singer back when i was 15. THAT would have been a little weird for me at least. Maybe if he was 40......

If you like it go with it.

But the music will have to be fun enough to compensate.

BUT if you want a singer you'll probably need someone who sounds like Chris Cornell, Geoff Tate, The dude from Symphony X, and many others in terms of skill, sound, projection, versatility, and much more.

Cornell really is a singer you'd want. Go listen to Jesus Christ Pose, Beyond the Wheel, or Holy Water by Soundgarden.

You can make a band based upon whatever you want.

You can have 5 guitars, or 3 drum kits, or 9 singers, or whatever. It's up to you.

Or you could find someone original and change rock history!

No, but without vocals you have to make your music a lot more... interesting than you would have normally, one example of great instrumental metal is Blotted Science, look them up.

Lol i was wondering the same thing. The only trivium stuff without vocals are the 1 or 2 minute instrumental pieces in the middle or beginnings of the albums.
