The Witness in the Valley

With A Voice formed shortly after Kord Mauer (drummer) posted a drum solo video on Facebook in 2010. They started recording their album in an abandoned trailer house in Thief River Falls, MN. After only 2 years, and a few lineup changes, they released their first full-length album “The Witness in the Valley” on Red Chord / Bridge Way Records.

With A Voice is made up of several musicians that I’ve been listening to since they were all in separate bands. Seeing where With A Voice has come in such a short time makes me proud to be a fan. Fans of Underoath will love this album because it sounds similar to “Lost in the Sound of Separation,” with their own special flavor that makes you want to mosh like a fool.

Lyrically, this album is astounding, every word coming straight from (writer/vocalist) Dylan Raftevold’s soul.

You can feel the tension of his struggles and triumphs throughout the album. “The Witness in the Valley” is very impressive for a debut release, considering all members are fairly young. If you’re a fan of Underoath, and are looking for something a little different, check this album out.

I've been through so much in my life and Christ was the only thing that could save me so for over a year I've poured myself into any door God has opened. My passion is music and Christcore is my heart.
