Hey guys, i have been in a band for a few months now, and i have been playing bass guitar for 4 years. I can play without looking, etc. And i don't mind singing in public. So, i became the singer until we can find an actual singer. Problem is, i am just awful. And i am not exaggerating. We played a gig, and they loved us, but when i opened my mouth, the crowd died. Worst feeling ever. When i just play bass, i move around, have confidence, and go in stride. But when i am singing, i just, have no enthusiasm. My voice becomes flat, i have no power. What can i do? i really need help here

I'm covering bass for my friends metalcore band (I'm 5 years in guitar and shred Melodeath and death metal like Bodom and Deicide and I don't like metalcore, covering bass as a friend since there is hardly any bassists here) and I do sing at times. I liked Metallica was I was 11 years old then got into the heavier shits with more melody in it. What you want to do is probably look up some bands with clear vocals and start practicing like hell and try to cover over songs. If all else fails, do what contaminatedwin said or just do guttural growls. (If you attempt guttural growls, you should not be using your throat. You have to flex your abs and kind of breathe out and vibrate your breath.) But I'm not sure what type of "metal" you are.

Here are your options:
1. Find a substitute singer within the band who can take over until a singer comes along.
2. Pay for lessons.
3. Go find a singer.
4. Become an instrumental band.
