To weep loudly, to cry or bawl, to lament or mourn for someone.

To cry out, usually in grief.
The wind was howling outside that night. At about midnight, we heard a woman wailing, broken by occasional sobs. We knew instantly that it was the banshee. We knew then that one of us would soon die.

As I was locking up for the night, I heard a little girl somewhere in the building, and she was wailing. Following the sound into into the women's room, I saw a little girl of about four, her face flushed from crying. As I walked towards her, she disappeared. Was this my imagination or had I seen a ghost?

To create one of the most glorious sounds ever concieved by the the great Metal gods. That is to unleash from the soul a most triumphant Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! or Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh! at extremely high or accending frequency with much vibrato.

Vocal emissions from Rob Halford or Eric Adams(of Manowar).
You know that old Judas Priest song called "The Ripper" where Rob Halford lets out a most hallacious wail that just makes your balls quiver?

Pendletron: Theres this wicked awesome song by Manowar where Adams lets out this otherworldly, mega wail that just makes my ass pucker in elation...

David Bashammer; Oh you mean like every freaking kick-ass Manowar song?

Pendletron: Thats the one..........mofo.
