Video: How to DEATH GROWL with The Black Dahlia Murder’s Trevor Strnad


Anyone who’s ever tried to growl along to their favorite metal band’s lyrics at a show and lost their voice after just one song has learned the hard way that death metal vocals aren’t as easy as they seem. There’s an art to it, a careful control, a proper way to breathe. It’s really fucking difficult to do without shredding your vocal cords!

So who better to teach us how to growl than The Black Dahlia Murder’s Trevor Strnad, who’s done it for a living on eight studio albums over the course of 15 years? Gargling whiskey, chomping Ricolas, looking in the mirror and telling yourself how great you are… it’s all in a day’s work for Trevor!

Watch below as MetalSucks writer Phil Boozeman goes on camera with Strnad before the band’s show in Wichita, KS this past August to learn first hand how to do death metal vocals like a boss. 

The Black Dahlia Murder’s new album Nightbringers comes out on October 6th via Metal Blade; pre-order here, and listen to album tracks “Nightbringers” and “Matriarch.”
