Not sure if I quite understand you there? - yep, I was drinking choc milk on the DVD. Soothers that numb the throat should be avoided before doing vox as you can't feel if you're damaging your voice or not. Warming up helps. Definitely avoid smoking if you can.

sad little incident

I used to be able to growl pretty good (I learned how to do that with a Psycroptic song) but a Cradle Of Filth song wrecked my vocals beyond repair. I can now only produce a rasp when I sing to a Metal track (or any other music track for that matter) and I'd like to learn how to make my rasp more audible to myself and others when singing.

The Drumming...

Do either the drummer or singer have any tips for drumming?

When I saw you guys on The Art of Noise tour the singer filled in for the drummer cause of the broken foot thing, and he pulled off everything just as well. All you guys are fucking amazing.

I guess my question is, any tips for blasting and such? Do you guys let your wrist, or fingers do the stick work? In the Reality rehearsal bit, he had this weird grip goin on, can you explain it a bit? Or how about the specs for your gear?

Thanks a bunch. Keep fuckin slaying.

Question For the bassist.

This is for the bassist.
What strings do you use?
Do you use a pick or your fingers?
Also, do you use standard tuning? (If not, what tuning do you use?)

Thanks! :D

He uses pics, they did have a bassist that used fingers though.

Correct.

Pick, and A tuning on a 5 string bass. I have no preferred brand of strings, and when I need them tend to shop around for the heaviest fattest set I can find.

As for vocals - who does what, and how do we do them - dig around these threads a bit, and you should be able to find some answers.

Does/did the drummer for Berzerker hold any drumming speed records? I heard he held the record for the fastest 1 handed single stroke hits but i'm not sure if its true. Also what is his average bpm?

if you were drinking chocolate milk on the DVD, what flavour of milk do you prefer out of:

Chocolate
Strawberry
Iced Coffee
Lime
Vanilla

I'm just wondering, that's all.

question for bassist or guitarist.

a few questions-
what pickups did you guys use exactly? on the DVD it says seymour duncan but theres about 5 million different models of seymour duncan pick ups.
and it looks like the dissimulate guitarist uses some emg (81's?)

also- sam ( sorry for using your name) i cannot downpick anywhere near the speed of massacre- did you use a metronome to be able to play that fast? also how good are you at playing things such as sweeps, arpeggios and neo classical type things?

and i plan on going out to buy a jcm 2000- the tone is incredible, thanks for showing it to me through the DVD! which model do you guys play through .

On the dvd there seemed to be alot of emphasis on the bass sound but i can barely hear it on the dissimulate cd except in last mistake and the slide on no one wins. other than that, it just blends with the guitar :-(- unless thats what you were going for

thanks for your time and hope to see you in the states soon!.. well i guess not the horned one anymore.
