Synapses are a band from Italy that plays a very heavy, technical and brutal form of gore/death metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Expiation" which was released by Deepsend.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding ultra blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from, slow, mid paced to fast gore/death metal riffs that are very heavy, brutal and technical sounding, and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with some high pitched screams being thrown into the music at times that gives the music a grindcore feeling, while the lyrics cover violent, hateful, and gore themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Snyapses are a very great sounding gore/death metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Iron Stream" "Rapture Of Terror" "Wearing Your Body" and "Deformed Trunk". RECOMMENDED BUY.
