About Never Before
West Valley, UT
Never Before combines generations of metal and rock into a cohesive, melodic, musical experience. The band is made up of six members, each with their own, distinct style. The group consists of two vocalists, one producing more soulful notes, the other, heavy scream overs. Two guitarists, a bassist, and a drummer make up the rest of the group. Never Before produces their material differently than most bands. The singers wait until the instrumental version of the song is completed, and then the lyrics are written according to how the song feels to them. This is relevant in assuring that their songs do not sound alike, making their music appealing to different audiences.
Their influences include Killswitch Engage, Threat Signal, David Draiman (Disturbed), Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil), along with numerous other artists. Every member of the band was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. Their performances reveal a steady and strong support base, not only in numbers, but in consistency as well. They currently have a ten-track album out, featuring a cover of "End of Heartache" by Killswitch Engage, that was recorded throughout the year of 2008.
Though the band has been together for a relatively short time, it is evident that each respected member contributes a significant element to the overall production. The most notable characteristic of the band that sets them apart from others is that each member comes from a completely different musical background. Each person has a different style of music that they favor. Performance is one of their strongest points, particularly because their motto is, "people come to see you. Play the song on the album, perform the song live." Every show promises to have an electrifying atmosphere that will be felt by most that attend. Perhaps this is the reason why their live shows have turned out steady numbers in attendance. To get the full experience, check the show schedule for the next one near you.
