Synaptik Sign With DeFox & Heart Of Steel Records - Remix Of Debut Album Out Worldwide January!




Synaptik Unleash Heavier Remix Of Debut Album With Extra Footage Out Worldwide 30th Jan!


British heavy metal five-piece, Synaptik from the east coast of England have an impressive sound that combines thrash, power and progressive elements, shaping their own distinctive sound. They have just signed with DeFox Records and Heart Of Steel Records, who will be re-releasing their critically acclaimed debut album, “The Mechanisms of Consequence”, originally released in September 2014.

The special remix edition by Brian Spark will be available digitally worldwide on January 30th, 2017 via DeFox Records/Heart of Steel Records on all major outlets including iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play, iHeart Radio and more. The album features some extra treats, along with the original nine technical metal masterpieces, including single, “Your Cold Dead Trace” (featuring guest vocals from Alan Tecchio of Watchtower/Hades and more) - except with this new remix, there will be a re-edited video for the song, as well as featuring more footage of Alan Tecchio.

Since their formation back in 2012, Synaptik has been leading their assault on the senses and have built quite the reputation with the original release of their debut and powerhouse live performances. A variety of accolades includes performing at some of the biggest UK metal festivals, such as Download Festival, Bloodstock and Mammothfest, as well as securing guest slots with heavyweights Iron Maiden, Exodus, Onslaught, Skyclad and more.

If you were unfortunate enough to miss this impressive debut the first time around, now is your chance to discover Synaptik’s eclectic and vast genre-twisting sound in this remix, which the band describe as a lot heavier than the original.

Vocalist John Knight explains "The debut album was mentioned whilst in the studio recording the new album and when we heard the remixes sounding so massive we felt compelled to put them out too and why not, they are incredible!”

You are responsible for your own ‘consequences’ but you don’t want to miss this band.

In the United States, the album will be released as a double album with the remix album as a bonus disc, this will be released by Divebomb Records.

Interview with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews of Mutation 


Mutation are an extreme metal act from the UK formed in 2013 by well-known vocalist/guitarist Ginger Wildheart, the man behind the rock group The Wildhearts and the frontman of Exit International, Scott Lee Andrews.

I caught up with Ginger and Scott to discuss the beginnings of Mutation, the new album '‘Mutation III: Dark Black’, touring, the future, mental health and much more in this interesting and honest interview.



As a musician who has played in many bands, most notably The Wildhearts and formed many projects, how did you come to form Mutation and why when you did?

Ginger: I did it mainly because I wanted to make the music that was in my head, and it didn’t look like anyone else wanted to do it.

At the time I was playing and writing with Michael Monroe, and while I l…

REVIEW: A Killer's Confession - Unbroken

A Killer's Confession is led by former Mushroomhead vocalist Waylon Reavis. The album was recorded in Kentucky, and the anticipated debut comes thanks to David Ellefson of Megadeth’s EMP Label Group. For their debut, they enlisted some friend's and exciting guests appearances to add to the intrigue which raises the stakes high for their first offering...

It sounds strange and eerie through the use of electronic sounds and is a must hear. This is one menacing and crushing track which wouldn't sound out of place on an actual Korn album.

The second half of the album treats us to more guest collaborations with '…
