“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 Bloodstock Festival, 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”
