Help on power-metal vocals

Can anyone help me about this: I have been growling for a couple of years now, and would like to start a power-metal side project with a friend of mine. So i am about to attempt a sort of high pitching vocals characteristic for power metal and all that stuff, i am looking for an Annihilator inspired vocal style, combined with the old school pantara vocals. So i was wondering if you are capable of maintaining a good low gutteral growl, and in the weekends do these high pitching vocals in another band, without them affecting each other, or should i stop growling to get better results with my clean vocals (that just sounded gay)? And i was wondering if anyone had some useful voice practices or tips i could use to learn faster? I know it's a very demanding genre to do vocals on, so any help would be nice

I do deep growls, high screams, and powermetal vocals all in one song, so you shouldn't have to stop the deep growls to get a good powermetal voice. But other people do say that to do the power metal vocals you should stop the growling and stuff. It doesn't effect me so maybe it won't effect you.

all this thread is is people talking about how they do vocals too

help or dont post

play notes on your guitar and try to hit them with your voice

make sure youre using your headtone to sing

sing loudly..but not too loud.if youre quiet and ashamed your voice does not come out right. sing louder than talking level

power metal is stuff like manowar and blind guardian. singing..high pitched, strong vocals

black metal is shrill and grating, screaming...snarling. not gutteral

let your bandmates kick you in the balls after every song....


and use your headvoice. power-metal vocals depend a lot of practise and training though, maybe take lessons? I don't know anyone who can pull the off perfectly (and consistent) but I know a whole bunch of vocalist.

I think it realy takes practice to realy get you up there. Taking lessons is a good idea to train your voice for some of those higher pitched notes, and then as you progress you'll probably need some lessons to help your sustain and variation, also learning the proper way of breathing (was a major help for me...).
As far as just screaming high notes, it takes practice, everyone sucks at first (unless you're born with that kind of voice). After a week or two I got pretty good at hitting the higher notes, although my yells aren't as powerful as some other people I know, but I can hit similar notes to them (with more practice I'll get there). Breating, like I said earlier, realy helps if you know how to do it properly, so lessons for this would be great.
Well... I'll confess, lessons in general are a good idea, so it should never be overlooked.
