When I do actually practise, I usually take a walk from my house (I live in the countryside) to a place with a good view of the town I live just outside. There, I get a good clear sound (no annoying echoes, no annoying "closeness" of a small room) and no one will know it's me they're hearing (though pretty much half the town can hear me).

I lack an isolated area nearby, so as has been previously said, just do it whereever. People may look at you funny, but screw them!!!! Do you want to sound good or not???

*PS My growl is good but my scream still sounds like Every Time I Die, who I love, but I'm not goin' for.

I practice in my dorm room, as loud as fuck so the music covers me up a little. Haha, it's a dorm so I KNOW they all can hear me on the whole floor. It's not embarrassing only because no one says anything.

....shit cool water, ahh yes, I've been singing ALL day, and fuck my voice ain't gone yet.......as high as Demons&wizards too.

lamb of god, just try "shaping" your throat different. Even though i use all diaphram, the way i "shape" my throat can change my vox from frank mullen off of peirced (that the closesest i can point it to) to this uber low gutteral growl to a scream thats close to barnes off the bleeding.

When I growl, I have two techniques that I use to vary the pitch of the sound.

The First technique I have, I open my throat as wide as possible and push as much air as I can through my vocal chords. The end result is a very hollow, very monotone growl that vibrates the euvuala (Spelling?).

The other technique is the complete opposite. I suck air into my lungs and pronounce words, making the voicebox work in reverse. If you can pull this off, you can get a very Inhuman Croak.

Not sure if I have already destroyed my voice, but It sounds cool.

I'll post a demo soon.

Use a lot of air, and sing out, don't sing to your chest. But also don't growl towards the cieling cause that's extra work. Just keep your face straight forward.

this may not have any relevance but the akercocke vocalist looks up when he screams and down when he growls.

*shrugs*

...I found that it's a good warmup for power metal singing to growl death metal first. One reason, it obviously clears the throat.

Exclamation

I tried screaming a minute ago, with the diaphram and all. I think it sounded pretty good but as i prolonged the scream i started feeling dizzy and almost passed out?! It didn't hurt though. But is it just that my physical shape is so lousy or what? Did I use too much diaphram? Need help, cuz it sounds good and my band really needs screaming vocals.

And another question: How do you do the kind of "panic" scream, wich is very high pitched and still inflicted with heavy distortion. E.G Alexi Laiho (children of bodom) does this a lot live, sounds really cold and scary.

That is right on track mate. I was practicing all last night for like 3 hours straight and I almost passed out like 3-4 times. That's also because I usually practice with something along the lines of Helloween and Iced Earth and Metallica, only lately have I started doing that. But my scream has always been a CoB type thing. All you need to do is just hack some phlem. It's sorta like closing your throat but just don't ckoke yourself. I can do it without any trouble whatsoever, infact, screaming like CoB is a relatively easy thing. Growling like CC though, you need a larger air supply. Keep drinking fluids as well.

For growling it all comes from the stomach...for the "meanest" growls make sure you have a lot of muscas (phlem) in your throat. It helps to make it deeper and just sound better overall. For screaming like black metal vocals I would suggest act like you are screaming but holding back. I'm not the best at high vocals cuz I naturally have a deep voice.

Also practice a ton. Sing stuff that you want to sound like and do it for like 40 minutes straight. Don't forget water though or pop (although pop is not like by some). The water sooths your throat and the pop can help create a muckas like substance. Also eating before hand doesn't really help because you tend to burp...

If you choose to work without water be prepared for your voice to be half gone for about 2hrs afterwards. I did that last night singing the entire Black Dahlia Murder cd (Unhallowed). So up to you.

For deep vocals (growls) close the front of your mouth more than when you scream. It helps to deepen the sound while opening your mouth wider helps to make screaming higher pitched.

example... here

Oh, thats cool it's just I thought you took it from someone else that post here, Riggs, because he has the same one. Yours is more red though so I guess its not completely the same.
