Metallica – Enter Sandman – James Hetfield – Isolated Vocals – Analysis and Tutorial

Metallica’s recording of “Enter Sandman” helped create such a powerful and authoritative sound, led by James Hetfield’s gigantic lead vocal. That same sound has really paved the way for what’s become scream and growl.

What other bands do you think have also played a role in helping create that sound? Let me know in the comments!

As we explore James’ isolated vocal track, I’m going to show you how to sing the tune starting with a clean sound and then gradually bringing in a little bit of fry.

I’m also going to have some fun with the track by adding a few things to the vocal and I’m going to see if you can guess what I did.

Check it out and let me know what you think I added to the track!
