RadStorm presents ‘Extreme Metal Vocal Workshop’ hosted by Hassan Munir and Brett Campaigne.

Growling has always been present in music worldwide in one shape or form. Whether it is the bestial roars of death metal, raspy blues singing, or even Kate Bush’s vocals on the track “Get Out of My House” from her 1982 album The Dreaming.

The satisfaction of producing or hearing a guttural roar is a powerful sense of raw emotion. It has been seen as primal therapy for many when or if it is not employed solely for extreme music.

This workshop is aimed at beginners and those interested in learning more about the extended vocal technique, also known as ‘growling.’. The primary goal is simple, how to safely produce guttural and harsh noises from their mouth without hurting themselves.

Two in-person sessions on Thursdays, July 28 & August, from 7 p.m until 8:30 p.m at RadStorm. Online version to be released at a later date.

‘Intro to Growling’ on July 28. This session will cover the basics and brief history surrounding the evolution of growling. By the end of the session, you should be able to scare your friends.

‘Mic Dynamics’ on August 4. If you growl and play in a band, you are most likely amplifying your vocals. This session will cover the various microphone dynamics that come into play.
