I think if you're screaming with good technique (lol), you shouldn't actually be hurting yourself at all.

From personal experience, whatever your scream is, that's your scream. I've worked at screaming for the longest time, and only a few members here on metaltabs are so unfortunate as to have heard them without effects and whatnot. But as for growls, the playing field is fair in the sense that you can practice for whatever you want.

And I want to reitterate : If your throat hurts, then you're doing something wrong. The reason is that you won't be able to sustain it over thirty minutes with an actual band if your throat's giving out after five minutes.

I was the lead singer of a metal band for over a year, it's all in the gut(not throat), drink lots of water and try not to smoke too much.

Being able to sing clean helps quite a few miles along the road to screams and all the other fun things to do with your voice that metal has given us.
"Being able to sing clean" i.e. knowing the techniques of it. The problem you are describing sounds pretty much like you are trying to it with your throat instead of your whole air system. A sneeze contains all the stopping power of a hurricane, so it's in there. I will however refrain from taking more space on the forum till you have had the chance to tell us that you've sung lead parts in the school choir for three years. Or something.

the school choir was a few years ago..quite a few..but i think ive got a good clean singing voice with quite a bit of charactor to it..its quite powerful as well and ur right i think i am trying to do it from the throat but im not sure how to get such a high pitch without doing it from there...i figured it was almost a falcetto type of thing..(probably going to get slated for that)

As others have mentioned both here and in the 9 bazillion other screaming threads, using your airways is a must. Thats where voice lessons (even if you never intend on singing cleanly) will help. In voice lessons you will learn to breath properly as well as manipulate your sound and whatnot.

Cheers

I once found my scream, but I've lost it since.
I've only ever done it twice.

Is low growling (like Frank Mullen) quiet or do I just to need to work on it?

Oh, and BassBehemoth, . A worthy vocal motto above.

Pronunciation, vocal range, age.......it'll never be exact.

I don't know you, but I know for a fact you can't copy Chuck schuldiner's voice--and I'm so confident that I could put that to a $20,000 bet.

I think what he means is that he can scream but it doesnt sound good

Like. I can scream but i would sound like a 14 year old girl getting butt-raped.
Definately not a Metal scream.

But then again i am not a vocalist.

Bit of advice dude. Screaming sounds different through a microphone behind a band then it does sitting in your room while your neighbours are thinking you are being bruttaly murdered.

Besides. Screams are a bit slipknoty. Practise gutterals and screeches.
