I really like the vocals in Avenged Sevenfold. I would like to get that nice edgy smokers voice in some of my recordings. Is this just a smokers voice or do they use a lot of compression. I watched some of their clips on youtube and noticed that his voice in the video didn't sound as thick as it does in the recordings. Its like there somekind plugin that adds harmonics or something. If its a plugin, I would like to know which one. Check out this clip to see what I mean. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_s-LCZw-UME Check out this youtube. I'm not a big fan of screamer stuff but I have to admit there stuff has some serious skill behind it and is tastefully done with a very commercial feel.
