How To Use It/Keep It? Vocal Exercises?

I have the advantage of having a low voice. I can make some really good sounding "growls" and stuff. But, though I always do fine in band practice, a few hours after practice I have a pain in the roof of my mouth and somewhat in my throat (mainly when I drink something). I figure that if I keep using that voice, then my insides will get used to it and it won't bother me afterwards. But, I'm concerned that my voice may not stand up to it throughout a decade or two of using it like that for a whatever band (or bands) I'm lucky enough to make music in. I've heard that some singers use vocal exercises to keep their voice in good enough shape to withstand the numerous concerts and whatnot. What do they do in these exercises? I'm glad I have the ability to create the sound I do, but I'm worried that I won't have the ability to keep it in good use. So any help on what to do would be appreciated.

And I know this question must be found on this forum day after day, but I'm new and haven't been keeping up on much of the vocal forum. So thanks for your patience and mercy.

1. take it out of the foil packaging.
2. pinch the tip of it to let some air into it.
3. holding the base, roll it onto your manhood. contact tranman if you can't do it properly.

Yeah, that's helpful if I want to make a Blink 182 cover album. But I'm trying to go for my own thing. Much heavier. And no, don't say a black guy's dick. I want something even heavier. And no, not Oprah. So there, maybe those sex jokes or overused by now and I look like an idiot. But I was just wondering, for example, what James Hetfield does to exercises his voice. I heard he uses certain ways to help (and I doubt it knobhobbling). Also, I read that Tom Araya has been at the edge of losing his voice before. So I was just curious how these guys keep it up. My singing style sounds between Pro-Pain, Pantera, and the really low growl on some of Pig Destroyer's songs (not that high-pitched crap). Soooo, maybe that helps some of the other people get an idea of what I'm doing with my voice in the first place. And as for you andrew, I think dissection would beat the shit out of me if I even got near him with the intent of blowing his luger. So if that's my only option, I think I'll just play in an instrumental band.

You just answered your own question. Tom Araya lost his voice, so obviously 20 years of singing fucked him up and he can't do the Angel of Death scream at all anymore. James Hetfield sounds really gay right now.
