I generally warm up before i play while my band is all warming up, playing chugs and blast beats etc,

I then go for about 5 minutes of every single different type of vocal style untill i'm warmed up, I start with growls, shouts, hardcore vocals, highs, lows, gutturls, then i do deathmetal vocal scales, followed by inhaled scales, i hum, zzz and just about anything I can do to warm up.

if that helps at all?

it's easier to do it with loud music in the background, or with enough adrenaline to belt it out yourself.
but it helps with the loud music in the background because you try to hear yourself.

however if you're a newbie at vocals then trying to do this may only result in you straining your vocals.
