Need help with my screaming voice

I am the lead singer for a metal band and this past week my screaming voice hasn't been up to par with what it normally is. I can usually do very smooth high and low screams but all this week they have been gravely and harsh. This has messed with my recent recording session and I have a show tomorrow. I need to get my screaming voice back to the way it was but don't know how. My normal clean singing voice is completely unaffected. It's just my screaming voice. Any help?

Re: Need help with my screaming voice

maybe you are singing too much from the throat and not using enough support?  I know way back in the day, like when I was around 14-15 (I'm 22 now) if I tried to growl/scream I would just end up coughing.  Eventually on my own I learned how to "growl/scream from your ab/belly" and even though I literally have not growled/screamed in years  I can still do somewhat decent extreme vocals, though I've always had to rely more on the mic to get real power above speech level.  Maybe with proper technique (you could check out the Melissa Cross dvds) a person can perform extreme vocals at a loud volume without hurting yourself?

EDIT: Also, if this means anything I've never been able/have liked doing "inhales", I've always been an exhaler.

Re: Need help with my screaming voice

I always exhale. I've been doing screaming vocals for about 5 years now and this is the first time they have messed up this bad. I've always used my diaphragm to get the force I need. My screams are very loud and clean when they are working correctly but for some reason they have become gravely just out of nowhere this past week. I haven't done anything different than I normally do.

Re: Need help with my screaming voice

Hmm I would probably not sing/scream for a week or two.  Maybe lightly test after a week to see if you're still having problems

Re: Need help with my screaming voice

Hmmm, maybe I can help here. What kind of screams are you doing exactly? Do you feel any discomfort?

Honestly man, I would just rest my voice for a little while.  Give it a few days or a week or two if you have to.  I used to hurt my voice like that sometimes(before I learned better technique), and simply giving it time to heal always did the trick for me.
