"A MATTER OF PERCEPTION"
"A MATTER OF PERCEPTION" is the follow EP to "SEQUENCES FOR A NEW
MATRIX" from Italy's SYNODIK. These guys play atmospheric Death Metal music
with a progressive edge. Their music has a very modern Death Metal feel with a lot of
intricate and involved arrangements. Their music also has a bit of a spaced out Science
Fiction vibe happening through. The music is very atmospheric all through, but gives a
great balance with the more brutal and heavier Death Metal meshed within. Their sound
reminded me a of a heavier faster and version of CYNIC mixed with THE
CONTORTIONIST, but with some spaced out Science Fiction elements. The well
balance styles of the vocals really helps to achieve this sound as well. Matteo Campanini
goes from low ended thick Death growls into some very melodic and almost spiritual
sounding clean vocals. These guys have been around since 2006 under the name
ASYLUM & as SYNODIK since 2012. You can tell these guys are well experienced
musicians as it shows in all aspects from the song writing, arrangements and the playing.
These guys will quickly become one of your favorites bands if you dig not traditional
Death Metal music that brings something new and exciting to the heavily populated Death
Metal genre. The only down fall to this release is that it's an EP with three songs and one
being an instrumental. A absolute must for fans of CYNIC, THE CONTORTIONIST,
NILE, OPETH & FALLUJAH.
