Cheers Cheers

Yayyyy!

Ok so it's basically just a collection of songs I did or did with other people. It's all me except for one song. It's not that good, it's mostly because I got bored so did loads of them in about an hour. Here's the link. Make enjoyment if you can.

Fuck this really sucked didn't it >.>

I shall be the first one to say that your growls suck Razz I'm not sure if they're growls even. Maybe rasps. But "Breaking the Law" is certainly very enjoyable. You did the Deicide thing at the end too (not sure if other DM bands do it), rasps and growls simultaneously.

All others are very good too, my favorite one among your originals is "I Fucked Your Mother With a Piano" (LOL). Amazing guitar work, sounds very technical and emotional. "Little Sluts" comes in next, so thrashy and BM-y. Only thing that throws me off is your comical hi-hat sounds Very Happy

Great job.

You have a song called "I Fucked Your Mother With a Piano"? Now my interest is peaked and will be downloading.

Wrong! I was the first to say my growls sucked lol. You're right though, they're awful. Glad you enjoyed some of it, i'm not sure what i'm really doing with the vocals (and most of the instruments lol) so I just go with it. I suck at drum programming lol. The instrumental was essentially my GCSE coursework composition but I couldn't think of a good name and didn't want to name it something cheesy and gay so went with something ridiculous.

So how do I improve? (aside from not growling anymore)

You can start by making your songs fit in one genre. For e.g, "Holy Poser" is Death Metal because of the growls, but the riffs don't really have the mood that's usually in DM. They're more Power Metal-y or plain Heavy Metal. If you put in more double-bass and blast beats, that will also be a good idea. But if you're going for stuff like Prog Death, or something experimental then it's fine as it is. Other than that, not much improving is need. Just do what you do (including growls), and you'll eventually get better at it.

The solos in "Bonded By Insanity" are the best parts of the album imo.

It sounds like you're screaming in your throat instead of your diaphragm which is awful for your voice. I think I heard once that the trick was to "hiss" and hold the ss sound in your diaphragm and that's the feeling it's supposed to be when you scream/growl. Whisper loud.

Anyways, other than that, it sounds pretty good. Solos are awesome. Some of the sound mixing is meh... meh.

The best description I heard was to sigh (go ugh) and then hold it. Basics of the growl.

I posted this already in the Vocals thread, but here's George Fisher on growling: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBhg51kROQ8&feature=PlayList&p=263CB9E7C2167AC8&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=50
