SYNAPTIK is a British heavy metal band from the East Coast of England. Formed in 2012, known to incorporate elements from styles such as thrash, power, progressive.
Synaptik aren’t afraid to mix up the influences and certainly don’t fear melody with their heavier than a black hole riffage and dynamic vocals, death metal aggressiveness with a progressive, melodic outlook. They draw on influences old and new to create a mutant hybrid sound-scape that makes them stand out.
Synaptik are soon to release their début album “The Mechanisms of Consequence” (September 26th) on German Label ‘Rebel Tune Records’.
A video for the single “Your Cold Dead Trace” is now available.
The single features guest vocals from Alan Tecchio (Watchtower/Hades/Non Fiction/Seven Witches)
“SYNAPTIK combines the attack of melodic death metal with the deadly subtlety of progressive metal. The band comes with a remarkable pedigree and features members who count Download festival appearances and guest slots with the likes of Exodus, Skyclad and Iron Maiden amongst their achievements. Expect a dizzying double-barreled assault of intricate melody and sheer power”

SYNAPTIK was formed from the melding of mad metal minds. Metal with a twisted edge, an edge believed to have been heated by the thermal production created during synaptic transmission between the sources. (or so Kev reckons anyway)
