The italian band Synapsyche was born in the late 2008 by the will of Stefano “Mannequinetik”, mastermind and only composer, with the intent to create an electro-industrial project with dark and aggrotech features, a bit lacking in their own motherland.
To start the band up, he simply needed to integrate a singer, expert for both clean and harsh vocals, and able to manage lyrics, vocal lines and rhythmics: the choice falls on Marco “Katatronik” Mantovani, performer with a 10-years experience as singer, both melodic in an italian rock band (Zona Traffico Libero) and screaming-growling in a melodic death metal band (Ultima Necat).
While in the beginning the project started almost for fun, as the time went by, Katatronik and Mannequinetik decide to expose theirselves more to promote the spreading of their music, noticed the great response got so far: it’s 2012 when Synapsyche accept the Gothic World Records proposal to join the compilation “Dunkle Frequenzen Vol. 1 – Premium Edition” (out in December 15th) composing a brand new track entitled “Zeroin”.
In the same period, the making of a 4-tracks self-produced E.P. called “Wait/Hate” is completed: mixed by Synapsyche and mastered by Federico Viola at Animal House Studios, it’s out in January 31th 2013 and actually available for digital download on the band’s official Bandcamp page.
During 2013 and 2014 Synapsyche finish remixes for songs of No Forgiveness, Warsickle, Halo Effect, Centeotl and Dark Soul. Meanwhile, they keep playing live shows in influential clubs of the italian ground.
In December 19th 2014 Synapsyche release their self-produced full-length debut album with all the tracks online so far: “Crashdown Connected”, a 13-songs concept opus mixed and mastered by Synapsyche at their own studios, is ready to be digitally downloaded on Bandcamp.
Actually Synapsyche are fixing the last details for the production of another brand new EP and many other ideas for songs and a new concept-album.
Synapsyche’s sound is a violent aggrotech, powerful and rhythmical, with modern harsh-EBM moments and dark-techno influences, where cybernetic effects alternate with dancing synths, while vocals are saturated with rage and nihilism. Lyrics, however direct and basic, are incisive and original in their celebration of vice, the perfect theme for the world of Synapsyche.
The members of Synapsyche consider theirselves as real musicians, with their own equipment and gears, many musical competences and full of ideas in becoming.
