Want To Be A Heavy Metal Singer? [How To Sing Heavy Metal]
I'm not talking about growling, shouting or screeching - I'm talking about real heavy metal singing like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Skid Row, Black Sabbath, Iced Earth and Nevermore.
If you're serious about being a heavy metal singer, then there's four powerfully important things you need to learn right now.
And I'm not just going to tell you about them, I'm actually going to SHOW YOU how to sing with these four powerful vocal fundamentals so that you can focus on your true goal of learning how to sing heavy metal.
Before we get started, let me introduce myself and let you know where I'm coming from as a singer.
Hi - I'm Kegan from Bohemian Vocal Studio. I've personally been singing for over 20 years, and I've been coaching since 2010 - so I've been at this professionally now for a decade.
When I was in highschool in the 90's, it was just metal, metal, metal for me - obviously Megadeth and Metallica and all the great thrash bands like Exodus, Slayer and Testament; but also that 'second layer' of lesser known, but incredible bands like Sanctuary, Pentagram, Nevermore, Iced Earth just to name a few.
I've always been a big 70's rock fan too - so Black Sabbath, Zeppelin, Creedence were also on my radar; back when rock and heavy bands had SERIOUS singers with SERIOUS voices.
I started singing "the old way" just by stepping up to the mic and yelling in front of my highschool bands at the time - I'm sure it was just as painful for my band mates' ears as it was for my throat.
Cue a few years of singing lessons, buying courses and chasing my tail looking for "the secret" to better singing - I really did start to question whether I really had what it takes to become a great singer:
Maybe I just have a bad voice?
Until I learned these four simple vocal fundamentals:
Now, you might be wondering exactly how The Four Vocal Fundamentals relate to Heavy Metal singing in particular - so there's one more important thing that I want to share with you.
But before I take your singing to the NEXT LEVEL with the #1 most important thing that you will ever learn as a singer, let me give you a few examples of the kind of range and power I've developed specifically for singing Heavy Metal using these four simple vocal fundamentals plus one more simple skill that I'm about to share with you:

Big Dreams? You Need a BIG Voice to Match
For me personally, mastering the Four Vocal Fundamentals was obviously intrinsic to building such an extensive range and effortless power - but there's one more thing that you absolutely must learn if you want to sing REAL heavy metal with range, power, passion and a delivery that makes the Gods themselves shake in their boots; and I'm about to share it with you.
But before I do, let me share a quick "Before and After" of my voice to show you I really am serious when I said I used to feel like I was a terribly bad singer - and that I might not ever reach my dreams as a singer because I had SUCH a bad voice.
Remember - my "before" was even after many years vocal training and years of stage experience. It's painful - but it really will show you that there's a light at the end of the tunnel if you're feeling the same way.
And if you want to learn the #1 most important thing you will EVER learn as a singer, you can just keep watching the video to the end and I'll show you how to apply it in your own singing (trust me - it's going to change your life!)
