Let's see, I would have to say I had a very unique teenagehood (yeah that's a word now).

My father is a diplomat, and my mother is unemployed, but the point is I moved around a lot, particularly in Asia. I've lived in 7 countries now, visited 64.

Middle school was really my time when I discovered who i was and what my hobbies are. Of course they've evolved, but they are relatively the same.

I was a metalhead, and I mean a true metalhead, not Linkin Park and My Chemical Romance (Linkin Park sucks now, MCR's still pretty good, never was metal though). I still am, and I was during highscool.

Anime, manga, was the main factor of my circle of friends. Middle school i had anime club (This was in Tapei American School in Taiwan , international system, No.9 private school in the world for schools to prepare you for Harvard, Stanford, not that I'm boasting about it)
I was also a lead singer for a band. We played symphonic metal, and I also played the violin/piano with the songs.

Highschool was in Canada for half of it, the other in Shanghai.

Pretty much the same deal, except Canada was my first public school experience. Hell was it easy. And very drug/drunk/teen preg/ violent.

I got into a lot of fights, went to a lot concerts, and played a lot of hookey (skipping class).

Still in Shanghai and the internet sucks. End of story

My teenage years sucked. I was a shy, depressed, angry, confused kid. All the adults in my life were irresponsible or untrustworthy. They would try to manipulate me into believing what the wanted me to, and treated me like some carrot at the end of a stick instead of a human. I was always nice to everyone and didn't trust anyone. The last thing I needed was drama at school since I already had enough at home. I rarely was at school for a full week and never did any homework. The only reason I graduated was because I'm smart and the public education system is built for idiots.

The past few years have been better. I am on track to graduate and go on to med school in a few year and am in a much better place mentally. I have figured out a lot of things that troubled me early on. Its just taken a little longer than I would have liked because I had no one to teach or guide me through it, I had to figure it all out myself.

Playing Violin - the only thing I wish I had retained from grade school. I was awful but I love that instrument.

Wow, that's pretty cool. I want to travel around the globe before I die, but have yet to make it out of the country. Having said that, and as a fellow musician, the whole metal genre frustrates me. They have all these cool, sometimes lyrical, sometimes heavy, instrumentals and then what does the lead singer do? He screams over it. That never made any sense to me. Why would you ruin an amazing guitar or bass line by screaming over it so nobody can here it? I would be pissed if I was the lead guitarist in a band, and after writing a masterpiece that took hours of blood, sweat, and tears, the singer walks into rehearsal one day and says, "yeah, I'm just gonna scream over it for 5 minutes."

Well, I'm still Nine-TEEN...Next month I will be twenty.
I don't want to get olddd!!!

feee...where can I start?
When I was a teen...I went through my things.
I learned and felt many emotions.
I gained new experiences, of life.
I made and lost friends.
I made many wrong choices. But I pulled through.
I had cool friends, some I still talk to today.
I was a goofball. I made school fun.


Looking back, makes me happy and sad.
Of all the great moments, and sad ones I had.


Idk man.

Well, sorry bud, but that just means you don't get what the screamings for. Honestly I wished more bands increased the vocals sound rather then having the drums drown out the singer. And the guitarist isn't going to get blocked out by the singer. Screaming takes a whole lot of skill, and you can still clearly hear the instruments. You must be listening to the wrong metal.

Sorry if I come off rude, but I just hate when people don't get what the screamings for, being a screamer myself.

I watched a whole documentary on screaming. They legit were going to a renowned vocal coach for training. It's pretty serious.

My teenage years....Started with very bad luck. Which led to missed opportunities. Which led to bad decisions. Unfortunate events early on caused me to become sort of emotionally stunted. I never learned how to socialize properly, but it really goes deeper than that. I can't really put it into words. I was highly sensitive, but completely lacked empathy. I desperately wanted someone to care about me, but didn't know how to care for others. I didn't even know how to approach them. I was, in a word, miserable. I've had exactly nine friends in my life. The loneliness I used to feel...It was physical. Deep in my stomach. You know it if you have felt it. It marked everything I did, and above all else shaped me into the person I have become...

Getting too dark so I'm gonna leave it there. Not wise to dwell too long on the past

No worries, your not coming off as rude, and I hope I am not either. I have the exact opposite taste you do I think .I believe a lot of songs out there are balanced toward the singer more than they should be. Also, you haven't really explained what the screaming is for, just that it is difficult.

To some a may sound like screaming but its art, its hard to sing loud and sound good, not the best samples but Korn, disterded three days grace, godsmack and old linkin park hard rock Metallica, System of a Down , Slipknot , Alice in Chains, and Pantera, They sound good to me they dont scream thing sing hard core I can see both view points. I like all kinds of music rock, metal, heavy metal, light rock, pop, country, soundscapes, some screamo r&b vary few hip hop more so old school type I can flow some can call it rap then screaming with style but its rock style like the old Linkin Park mixed with other stuff I can play drumbs suck at strings. but soft singing is good 2 like hinder, amy lee, life house, seether, rob zombie, simple plan, ICP, poison, dresden dolls and jimi hendrex
no matter the style it takes skill different skills for each type all bands, singers and artest have skill its a mater of taste and likes
