The Zen Of Screaming. A sweet and pretty vocal coach, Melissa Cross is the key to all the screaming rockstars like Andrew WK, Slipknot, and others (see below for a longer list). She put together an instructional DVD at her fans' requests. The DVD is both instructional and full of cameos by her pupils showing their love and praise for her.
In the early '90s, a passionate and unrestrained new breed of rock singers began a journey to the extreme limits of the human voice. Heeding the call of this army of screaming warriors, forward-thinking vocal coach MELISSA CROSS developed a training program for the pioneers of the genre to preserve their vocal cords without compromising an ounce of their trademarked passion. Combining solid voice technique and a groundbreaking vocal workout with tour-bus humor and backstage commentary, The Zen of Screaming is as entertaining as it is informative. This DVD/CD is the first of its kind and a must-have tool for the modern vocalist.
