Vocal distortion is the reason, we're all here, right? Metal vocals are just an extreme form of this vocal technique. In this video, David gives an overview of what vocal distortion is and how we will start working towards producing the sounds you're after.
Did you know that the muscles of your face play an important role in the production of your metal vocals? In this lesson, David talks about the importance of learning how to control and relax the facial muscles so your movements are voluntary and a choice instead of involuntary reactions.
This lesson is about how sound resonates within the body. David explains the differences between head and chest resonance and how to feel those differences and start to purposefully direct your sound to one or the other.
If you haven't watched Lesson 4 covering head and chest resonance, we highly suggest you watch it before diving into this topic. Understanding sound direction is the next step. In this lesson, David explains how to send your sound to a desired location through the use of the soft and hard palates.

In this lesson, David explains why having a good foundation and growth in your melodic range is important and how it will apply to your metal vocals as well. He also goes into detail about how to begin working on expanding your range.
