metalcore anyone?

old AFI, LP breakdowns, Living Sacrifice, Haste The Day, Underoath?

Can anyone here do vocals? I just started recently, and my throat is bleeding A LOT.

But I discovered today that if you eat packets of sugar after you scream it will make your throat feel a lot better. It's a lot better than liquids, because it won't destroy electrical equipment for music if it spills.

What I'm doing is filling a plastic bag with sugar, cutting a hole in the bottom, and covering said hole with duct tape. When I need sugar, I can peel back the tape and get some throat sooth-age. Yes.

Any suggestions on solutions to throat pain and how to keep your vocal cords healthy? I wanna be able to sing still when I get old. Not metal of course. Old people singing metal would be really weird.

Comments please.

    If your throat is bleeding then stop. When you scream correct it shouldn't hurt or bleed or damage anything. It's a hard process to explain but it's kind of like making the noise the grudge girl makes or a pterodactyl? So you draw a noise over this "sand paper" feeling on the top of your mouth. Use air the same way as you do to sing to project the overtones(with your stomach rising/ diaphragm moving/etc)- don't force it.

  2. Yea, Bleeding=BAD, sugar idea is funny though. The scream is a hard thing to pull off. There's a band called "Job For A Cowboy" which has some different screams in it. Practice screaming like that, and then you can get the feeling down. Listen to the song: Entombment of a Machine.
