    Default Screaming help?

    I recently started trying to learn to scream.
    But I really don't know any songs/bands that have "easier" screaming.
    I've been working on Reptar, King of the Ozone - The Devil Wears Prada...but it's a little hard.
    I know a lot of bands, but I wanna know what would be good to start out with.
    Any tips/ideas?

    Maybe if you had real talent, you wouldn't have to scream.

    Yeah, I've been in choir so they taught me to use my diaphragm when I sing.
    So that's how I scream.

    Reptar, King of the Ozone is a dope ass song.

    Learn a death metal esque growl first, it's easiest and then you can just branch off from there. I just do a death growl but let some air go through my nose and it works fine.

    Tell you what - next time you're inexperienced in a subject, discuss it as such. The level of dedication involved in developing and refining/maintaining a good screaming voice is similar to that of traditional singing (classical or otherwise); it just so happens that the latter is more reliant on vocal genetics.

    I generally only use songs when I want to work on breathing and word formation (I like to use Norther songs, such as "Blackhearted" or "Of Darkness and Light"), or when the usual routine gets boring. My preference is to run through my range of pitches, sustaining each pitch for as long as my lungs will give.
