Alfred has started distributing the second release in this best-selling vocal series, The Zen of Screaming 2.
Renowned instructor Melissa Cross is back with the sequel to her instructional DVD teaching the art of screaming to metal singers. Moving a step beyond the basics of good vocal production learned in the original DVD, The Zen of Screaming, viewers now tackle the finer points of extreme vocal styling without risking vocal damage.
Cross guides students through the execution and physiology of various scream timbres with the help of her clients, including the lead singers of Underoath, Unearth, Thursday, All that Remains, Arch Enemy, Chimaira, Sick of it all, God Forbid, A Life Once Lost, and more. Plenty of performance and practice tips are included. This DVD is also highly useful for those wishing to safely add a rasp in the voice without ripping up the vocal cords.
Corey Taylor, lead vocalist for SlipKnoT and Stone Sour, also remarks, "Anyone who wants to be the best needs this video; the techniques are simple and easy to learn. It works for me—it will work for you."
The Zen of Screaming 2 is now available on DVD for $24.95.
