Snipers of Babel are a 5-piece band out of Washington DC. Their epic, ground-breaking sound fuses brutal metal and industrial influences with classical and soundtrack-esque ambiance. Three co-equal powerhouse vocalists cover a wide range of sounds from guttural growls to piercing screams and soaring melodies. The result is an intricate, skillfully crafted soundscape unlike anything else heard in metal to date.
Founded in the summer of 2016 by Mike Bossier and Jeremy Dyer, lineup changes have resulted in its present-day incarnation of Bossier on guitars, keys, and samples, with Danny “D-Bo” Boiko, and Layla Singer on vocals (a collaborative trio of vocalists which the band refers to as “a band within a band”), Chris Hicks on bass, the monstrous Kevin Talley on studio drums, and Mike Lumer on live drums.
Many things have been said about Snipers of Babel’s unorthodox approach, and many have struggled to label them. Even the band members themselves find it difficult, but the truth is, as Mike Bossier himself has said, “All we can really say is that its metal. You just have to hear it.”
