what I mean is how do metal vocals work? Do they start out learning classical/Western training: breathing, vocalises and arias and then specialize in metal vocals?

same for other forms of vocals: jazz, Bollywood, etc.

  • Very different techniques, even between classical and pop type singing, so I doubt if anyone wanting to become a metal vocalist would be drawn to classical training first. – Tim Oct 16 '17 at 15:21
  • oh okay so they just go to the specialized vocals then – Lenny Oct 16 '17 at 15:48

    Yeah, I'd have a hunch that the learning you need to keep screaming and death growling without losing your voice is a separate set from classical training. – Dekkadeci Oct 16 '17 at 17:02
