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.

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…

Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…
