A Notion of Silence is an Alternative Progressive Metal band with members based in Pittsburgh and Nashville. It is the result of the songwriting ambition and storytelling instinct of Pittsburgh guitarist Austin Klinger being brought to life by the muscular musicianship of singer Jesse Brock, drummer Bowman Brock, and bassist Ben McAnelly. Jesse and Austin have been collaborating on music since they were college roommates at Belmont University, with Austin engineering and co-producing the album Hilasterion by the Brock brothers' band Lines in the Sky. After college, the pair parted ways with Austin relocating back to his home state of Pennsylvania, but when the beginnings of an intricate concept album began to form, it was only natural that they reconvened. Propelled by the manic, yet precise maelstrom of drums from Bowman Brock, anchored by the muscular bass of Ben McAnelly, bristling with layers of Austin Klinger's guitars ranging from atmospheric to feral, and tied together with Jesse's emotive singing, A Notion of Silence is proud to tell a science fiction tale of Gods, Life in the Universe, and Humanity's place among it all on their 2018 debut album, Dynamo.
