"Working with Aliki was definitely what I needed to improve my screaming technique and to be able to tour extensively with my band. Learning how to properly use the false chords, the breathing, as well as building my warming up routine with her prevented me from getting injured and allowed me to deliver every single night! Definitely what you are looking for if you are into extreme metal singing."
