you might need deez

actually though just learn the proper techniques and let the sound come out of you, your inner voice of SATAN!!
what kind of vocals are you thinking of anyways?

Truthfully all you can do is learn proper warm-up and breathing techniques that any Google search and/or vocal instructor can help you with. Going out too far out of your way to sound unique or like another vocalist is only going to be damaging, so you'll just have to find your natural voice. I don't see how gender has anything to do with it.

Edit- this thread really doesn't belong in the Extreme Metal section.

unless, Natsquatch, she's looking for tips on the vocals found in most Extreme Metal :P

Plibt + Natsquatch - yeah, thats why i put the thread here. the kind of vocals i do are definitely extreme metal.
i have a vocal instructor, and my natural vocals sound pretty good as is.
the problem is, im trying to find a band in need of a vocalist in my area, and the first thing they usually tell me is, wait you're a girl-- your vocals don't really sound like what we had in mind.

There's a Musician's forum here for this kind of topic. Just sayin'.

Check out Angela Gossow from Arch Enemy if death growls are your goal.

Or there's Tarja Turunen formerly from Nightwish, or Simone Simons from Epica.

hey does anyone know the name of the one chick from Battlelore?

Mar 19, 2010 9:00 PM ET #11 (permalink)

The lady from the agonist is one of my main inspirations as a vocalist...diversity being what I'm going for. She does clean singing, deathcore, death metal, blackened vocals, and even *gasp* metalcore lol Definitely someone to find inspiration from.

The Landmine Marathon has a female vocalist, and they're streaming their new album on their myspace I think right now. You would never know the singer was a chick either.

I am a student of classical singing, and there is where it all begins.
My suggestion is, to discover your own voice and then you will not have to copy anyone, on purpose or not.

When you learn the basic things about singing, you can already discover that you put 'a personal touch' on everything that you sing.

If you need some tips on how to do this, feel free to ask ;) .
