Above a Whisper’s latest single, “Never Let Go,” is definitely more Djentle than gentle! Beginning with a building energy, the song explodes in a way that carries a solid energy sure to cement the newcomers to a firm place in the metal world.

Formed in the summer of 2018, Above a Whisper is a six-piece band from Dayton, Ohio. They mixed metal, djent, and progressive styles to create and release their first track, “Never Let Go” in September 2018. Surprisingly aggressive and well-done for a band that’s just starting off, the single is very well-mixed and balanced in the vocals. The lyrics and delivery suit the rest of the track, enhancing the energy created by the rest of the band. The song moves along smoothly, each section blending in a way that allowed the instrumental parts to shine just as brightly as the vocals.

If you enjoy bands like August Burns Red, As it Is, Vigil Antics, and Senses Fail, you’re sure to enjoy Above a Whisper. Keep an eye out for new content coming soon! The band has plans to release a new song in 2019 and go on tour.
