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.

I dunno.
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).
