Even if you don’t really listen to heavy metal music, you’re still probably aware that metal can generally be categorized by it’s loud, prolific, and unforgiving characteristics. That’s a large generalization, but in my humble opinion if you’re looking to perform metal music then you had better get good at one of those traits, at least.
That being said, metal can be quite a damaging music to perform, especially for screamers. Screamers run the risk of blowing out their voice every night to perform this music, but what you may not know is that there’s an actual art-form to metal screaming, and this lady here is the master at it!
Melissa Cross is a vocal coach who coaches metal screamers and teaches them proper screaming technique. Yep, this is real!
I was surprised to hear this as well, but as it turns out, there’s a right way to do it. Many metal screamers would agree that Melissa is a godsend, and after watching this, you will too!
