i have a friend that sings for a death metal band, using a technique called growling..its hard to explain the sound
i was wondering, even if you do it correctly,will growling, in the long run, damage your vocal chords?

it does alter your voice after a while.
almost 10 years ago one of my best friends did death metal... and after a show his voice would be all fucked up.
that voice is soooooo done and over with.
no one does anything original anymore.....
there are still some cool bands out there though.

i personally think it will in the long run
i think it may result in a weaker voice
i know opera singers often strain their vocal chords
& that inables them to sing
thats why voice training is key
doing warm-ups & what have you

I have a friend that sings for a death metal band in the growly type way. I dunno if it damages the vocal chords, but I kinda wish it would! Maybe then he'd stop constantly singing like that when he comes to my house! I hate it!!!!!!

i suppose it is always possible, depending on how you care for your voice. i know some singers have been doing it for years. although there is different stlyes of "growling" from the incomprehensible noise i hate (canable corps, nile etc..) to understandable i like (immortal) and melodic range with growly sections(dark tranquility, bal sagoth).
