LAMB OF GOD Frontman To Appear At Portland Vocal Seminar

Frontman Randall Blythe will take a short break from recording the new LAMB OF GOD album in Richmond, Virginia and join his vocal teacher Melissa Cross at "The Zen of Screaming" seminar on September 16 in Portland, Oregon. The seminar, held at Mt. Tabor's Legacy Theatre, promises an ultimate vocal relief regimen for career rage-aholics plus career advice from a panel featuring former DIVINE HERESY/current SNOT singer Tommy "Vext" Cummings, Jake Weholt (FROM APHONY), Andrew Moore (KANE HODDER), Tryg Littlefield (FALL FROM GRACE) and Sam Logan (RUSTMINE).

Prior to the seminar, Blythe and Vext will join Melissa Cross in the medical office of a nationally acclaimed laryngologist for a research effort relating to the mechanics of vocal distortion intended for presentation at the prestigious Voice Foundation Symposium in 2009.

"We're putting the camera down their throats," said Cross, "because vocalists and the voice professionals that help them need to know exactly what is going on down there."

With a client list longer than the porta-potty line at Ozzfest, Cross continues the crusade to bring credibility and information regarding a healthy approach to brutal vocals with the release of the "The Zen of Screaming" and "The Zen of Screaming 2" DVD series. In addition to sharing his vocal wisdom for singers, Blythe warns fellow party warriors, "Be prepared because I am going to tear it up in Portland!"

Another earlier "The Zen of Screaming" seminar with a similar panel will take place in Seattle on Saturday, September 13 at London Bridge Studios. Space is limited. Tickets are on sale now by clicking here. Melissa Cross will also be available for private lessons at both locations.
