I have to stop singing for a while because I might have misused my fucking voice and I can't sing high notes anymore, and voice sounds weird too :pissed:

Anyway here's what I managed to get together before the problems started;

The idea was to record two new albums for 2016, one completely new, and one with some old but good material that hasn't been recorded before, and also a couple of updates on old songs that can benefit from better production and performance.
:metal: I BELIEVE IN HEAVY METAL! ALL MEN PLAY ON TEN! FIGHT FOR THE LOUUUD :metal:

This band is fucking on hold, we need a singer! I have tried finding a singer for 2 years and all singers we find SUCKS ASS or are just TERRIBLE PERSONS!!!!! OR EVEN WORSE: TERRIBLE PERSONS THAT SUCKS ASS!

Too bad you can't sing anymore, you sounded good !
Maybe you can try to get some singing lessons : a lot of rock / metal singers broke their voice and had to take lessons to learn how to prevent injuries !

By the way, cool tune !

This kind of singing is a bit over the top for my taste, but dude you had a nice voice for the kind of music. Yeah go take lessons to tame down the vocal cords and dont fuck them up.

How did you lose your voice? Yelling at your keyboard?
I haven't lost my voice at all.

But, I have always had trouble being able to sing for a long time. Back when I started singing in the first place (like 2 years ago) I had no idea what warming up excercises was. So that was the reason I fucked up many times back then. Live I could just sing like 3 songs before losing half my range.

But now, when I finally do proper warming ups and drink enough water long time before singing (following the pee clear, sing clear rule) I still have the same issues. And fora long time I've had trouble getting strained just talking to people.

Back when I screamed my ass off in various punk bands one time I got blood coming from my throat, and one time I lost my voice completely for several days. I couldn't even whisper words! After that I didn't "sing" for a very long time, and then 2 years ago I discovered I could actually do decent power metal singing. But I've never had an easy time singing either, always strained. And I don't think it's going to be beter, I think it's all a result of my stupid punk screaming back a few years.


When one of my punk bands was on tour in Germany I had to stop singing after just two gigs because my voice was shot... still had like 10 more to go so our bass player had to sing everything :lol:
