In academic studies about heavy metal, vocals have rarely been addressed from the poïetic point of view. By pointing out possible misconceptions about the production of vocals in heavy metal studies, this article suggests the adoption of existing and ongoing scientific research on voice science; the latter includes different clinical fields such as vocology, phoniatrics, otorhinolaryngology and logopaedics, in addition to the subfield of vocal pedagogy.
