yes I was 14 a few years ago.
never heard of the first three.
I love manson's music-but not all of it.
well I apologized to everyone that I was rude to on another post:is being a rock star worth it? yup that one...some buried the hatchet and some have not replied.
its cool though-just don't apologize for being stupid and not reading the entire post then call me a jerk.
its funny that you call yourself transient_smile when you're not even smiling in your picture
and to the guy underneath you thats fine because dissing a prick lick brian warner or slipknot is no hair off my ass buddy.
ps:please have the creativity to diss slipknot at least-don't just leave it like that it's called not having balls when you do that.
Im a big fan of the 80s and 90s alternative rock scene. The first band I tried to sing like was Staind, and I'd say theres still a bit of Aaron Lewis in my sound. Mostly I've been told I sound like Layne Staley, Eddie Vedder and Scott Weiland, but I'd also say I sometimes sound like Mark Lanegan. I sing lots of types of rock, quiet acoustic stuff, classic rock and metal. I don't like to scream and I haven't tried to get better at being able to do it. I can shout well though. Recently I've been learning to do a lot of Alice in Chains and Nirvana songs which really help me train my voice up.
Led Zeppelin are great - sometimes not quite my thang though.
you cannot eat steak every day - sometimes I just want a friggin salad!
my band's lead singer is a screamer - sometimes I wonder if his throat and his head are gonna pop off or rip apart!
it's quite a sight - and I would not recommend trying to out-scream him...because it's impossible...my dudes are freaks!
I prefer actual singing, when your audience can hear the words instead of noise. sorry for being bitchy but it's just because I don't like screaming or the music that you tend to find screaming on. I like pantera, but even Phill Anselmo doesn't scream constantly and does sing in parts.
uh huh, I can definitely agree with that - screaming though it may sound nasty and immature and pointlessly noisy to some can also be a release of anger or emotion to the listener.
not everyones cup of tea, but screaming has its benefits - like when me and my band went to get some junk food, our lead singer growled at our waiter and this guy turned a rosy shade of red and sped up our order!
we won't do it again I promise
but just imagine the beatles sang "can't buy me love" while screaming!
my lead singer is a crazy dude and he once tried to sing an acoustic song he wrote...but the broads we were hanging with laughed at him, so he's kind of over that - or just a little shy of showing some sensitivity - he will kill me if this ever goes public!
transient_smile - watsup girl!
I didn't say I don't get anger and emotion into my singing. Listen to any Pearl Jam song. Eddie Vedder has one of the most emotive voices in Rock. When he's shouting in songs like 'Blood' and 'Deep' I'm left in awe of his power. I can sing alice in chains songs like 'We die young' and 'Dam That River' and they are full of anger and can't be sung softly.
That site is the previous band I was in. The recordings are 3 years old now and I don't like listening to them now. But when my current band gets recordings ill let everyone know, probably will be covers and not originals. I totally get what you say about the vocals on those tracks, I'd like to think I've greatly improved since then especially since comming to university. I will work on screaming/growling soon just to see if I sound good doing it.
It was the most successful of the highschool bands I was part of. But after college we had to split because we all moved to different universities. They're still my best friends and we get together for practices in the holidays but don't do gigs anymore. Might be able to get a couple of songs recorded with them for old times sake over Easter if we're not too drunk lol.
Marilyn Manson and Slipknot both blow. All they do is scream in the mic. My suggestion is that you get a rope, pull your head out of your ass, and listen to some real music son. Listen to some Zep, Skynyrd, ACDC, Guns' N Roses, Poison, White snake, Def Leppard, and then come back to the rock section when youve ridden your brain of these jokers.
