Northlane – Quantum Flux
Small word clusters with open vowels. Very moderate tempo.
(the song isn’t in a straight 4/4 time signature at times so it may be a little disorienting at first)
Throwdown – Forever
A lot of lyrics with more harsh and closed vowels.
Mostly mid screams. Breath control becomes super important here
Suicide Silence – Unanswered
This song requires both good breath control, quick articulation of lyrics, and as the ability to switch between highs, lows and gutturals. In short, this song has everything. If you can scream this song, you can pretty much fry scream your way through anything.
Arch Enemy – Nemesis
Emmure – 10 Signs You Should Leave
Road Runner United – Annihilation By The Hands Of God
This is pretty much a marathon of breath control and it feels like your mouth is open for 5 minutes and 30 seconds straight. If you can pull this song off, then you have mastered the balance between projection and conservation of air.
if ya wanna get extra credit, then try to do these songs!
Archspire – Calamus Will Animate
I can barely even read as quickly as Oliver Rae Aleron can scream. Keep up with him if you can!
Dillinger Escape Plan – Panasonic Youth
You gotta not only be able to hold a consistent distortion throughout your performance, you also have to contend with extremely confusing time signature changes!
