Yes girls can do scream too. Listen to Kittie, they’re an all girl band and they do have screaming vocals. Here are some tips on “How to do screamo” though -

First off, there’s more to it than just screaming. You have to know HOW to do it and what things to do… or else you’ll fck up your vocal cords and sht. That wouldn’t be too fun now would it?

Screamo sounds really awesome when done right. My advice to you is just practice. You won’t sound EXACTLY like the bands who do screamo. Everybody who does screamo has their own unique sound. Just try to start out by testing different sounds and such… low, loud, in between. Each should have a different sound. DON’T PUSH YOURSELF. If your throat starts hurting or your voice starts slipping STOP. Don’t risk hurting your vocal chords. Keep a drink like water, gatorade or whatever you drink, handy that way you can get a drink in between screaming. This is an important thing to do to keep your vocal chords moist, that way your vocals chords don’t start getting dry. Be sure to take breaks from it too. Don’t keep practicing 24/7. Get a drink before you start, in between during your breaks from screaming and after you’ve finished for the day/night. Don’t try to be something your not either. If you don’t get it, don’t worry. Maybe you will some other time. Practice for a half hour or an hour and then stop for the time being and maybe try again later that night for another half hour or so. Be sure to take a few 10 minute breaks or so in between your practicing times too as I said before.

Just follow my advice and you should be fine. But like I said… if it hurts… STOP. Don’t ever push yourself or else you’ll cause damage to your throat/vocal cords and then you’ll really be wishin you hadn’t of pushed it huh?

Ignore the dumbas*es who just say stuff like “uhhh… just scream” or “start by hating your life”. Screamo has nothing to do with hating your life. And there’s WAY more to it than just screaming.

I think that about covers things, need anything else regarding this or something… don’t be afraid to ask me because I’m very good when it comes to stuff like this haha

yeah, im a girl, and im trying to learn to screamo scream, im 14, and yeah, im pretty sure my voice has matured already, because somewhere else I herd that if your voice isnt matured you wont be able to scream, and yeah, I really wanna learn to scream, I try and learn but, I just cant do it, please, any ideas, tips, or step by step instructions for me? my email is

Answer #10

Yes girls can sound like guys in terms of the screaming (but more so with ‘growling’). Growling relies very little on a ‘voice’ and so at the end of the day, so long as you know how to do it, the sound will have no less authority than if a man were to make it. I’m a guy, but I know how to do it well. Makes a good change-up for my unsuspecting friends at karaoke :D, lol. There was a band (can’t remember the name) where right at the start I thought the vocalist was a man until I actually saw her, haha. So ultimately, yes women can make the same screaming/ growling sounds as men if they use the right technique.

Answer #11

Yeah, loads of girls can scream like guys. Search on youtube something like “Female underoath vocal cover” or “Female bring me the horizon vocal cover”

Listen to Arch Enemy, as well. Wow. Female singer sounds EXACTLY like some of the guy screamers.

Answer #12

Glad to hear you like my advice. And if they got the pitch right, I’d say they could probably sound “deep” instead of “girlie”. But then again that depends on what kind of voice the girl has too. They’d just need to practice and mess around with different pitches and see where it took them.

Answer #13

shamaya from the band OTEP does a really great job of it.

karen crisis from the band CRISIS is almost indiscernible from her male cohorts as well.
