Soundiron tells us that Voices Of Rage is an aggressive death metal, hardcore and metalcore vocal library that combines awesome vocal performances, powerful word and lyric building systems, tempo-synched step sequencing, multiple microphone types, rack multi-FX and tons of cutting edge content and capabilities. They say that it explores the raw, brutal and guttural vocal style that death metal and hardcore is known for, in all of its roaring, screaming, hissing and screeching glory. Here's what Soundiron has to say about it in their own words...
We recorded vocalists Evan "Severed" Seidlitz, Alecia "Mixi" Demner (Stitched Up Heart), Jason Kocol (Impaled) and Aaron Boynton (The Sky We Scrape), each bringing their own style and technique, giving you options to work with a broad range of metal sub-genres. We pushed them to their absolute physical limits to build a massive array of fully playable lyrics, recording with both stage dynamic and studio condenser mics to give you total control. Our Wordmaster dictionary includes 100 playable words, covering a variety of nouns, pronouns, verbs and adjectives. Each word was chosen to create an effective lyrical toolbox. You can flip between sustain and staccato modes - and choose either guttural death and acidic screaming for each.
We also recorded hundreds of live phrases that can be assembled into your own songs using our phrase step-sequencer and tempo-synched, stretched, layered and blended. The FX Rack panel provides multi-effects, compression, delay, EQ, amp/speaker simulation and reverb, with our most popular custom recorded rooms, halls, cathedrals and fx impulses. Finally, we contorted the source recordings into a selection of atmospheres.
This regular open-format Kontakt library requires the full version of Kontakt 5.1 or later.

I've been SUCH a big fan of Soundiron libraries… have 95% of them but god this really IS an all time low…. why on earth does this genre of music require a library…. all of the highest quality recording chains, finest processing, wonderful editing to just record some tuneless guttural screaming into a mic.. so that we can ALL have the same guttural screaming crap in our next track….. Beyond poor…..
