Snipers of Babel are a 6-piece band out of Washington DC. Their epic, ground-breaking sound fuses brutal metal and industrial influences with classical and soundtrack-esque ambience. Multiple 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, the band quickly grew into its present day incarnation of Bossier on guitars, keys, and samples, with Dyer, Tommy Mott, and Layla Singer on vocals (a 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 sound and arrangement, and many have struggled to label them. Even the band members themselves find it difficult, but the truth is they don’t need a label. As Bossier himself has said, “All we can really say is that it’s metal. You just have to hear it.”
