Screaming Improvement.

Hello, this is not one of those posts asking how to scream.

But merely some vocal tips, recently I've been learning how to do a medium pitched growl, using the vocal fry technique, like the vocalist of Grand Belial's Key and Helrunar.

It sounds pretty good but I usually get a slight sharp tint in my throat while doing it, minute though.

It's only started happening this month, the whole period while I was learning to do it using the same technique I never felt pain. But now after a short vocal session, my throat is dry and hurts if I try to do it again. I push the air for my diaphram if anyone is wondering.

I bought the Zen of Screaming 1+2 to learn how to do it safely, but I really didn't learn anything from that.

What I am wondering is, is the pain during and after the scream due to no warming up?

If so, does anyone know any good vocal excercises and warm ups I can do daily before I start trying to scream again? It's my dream to become a metal vocalist and I don't want to give it up!

vocal fry/ head voice vocals always tend to irritate the throat or cause minute pain due to the direct pressure and air over the vocal chords. i suggest coating your throat with honey or drinking warm tea as well as humming and exercises involving chanting like a monk.

Oh right, I'm glad you've cleared that up. I was primarily worried if I was doing the technique wrong, but I guess warm-up and keeping the throat lubricated is a huge factor.
