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 long 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 free digital download on the official Bandcamp page of the band.
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 available for digital download and as limited edition CD on Bandcamp.
In march 2015, the brand new track “Breath Control” is included in the Alfa Matrix compilation “Endzeit Bunkertracks VII – The Bonus Tracks” and becomes a hit in the industrial clubs.
It's september 30th 2015 when Synapsyche's new self-produced/self-mixed/self-mastered EP code-named “Meds” comes out, as a gift for their loyal fans, available for free digital download and including also remixes of Chamaeleon, First Black Pope, Binary Division, M.O.D. and Thornsectide.
In october 2015 the amazing russian label SkyQode announces Synapsyche as new artist of their illustrious roster (including great acts as Cold In May, Diversant:13, Freaky Mind, Kromak), ready for an exciting collaboration and new sick tunes to release: the first work with SkyQode is the mindblowing EP “Hate And Psyche”, out December 4th 2015, mixed by Synapsyche and mastered by Rush at SMT studios, with 2 brand new songs including the dancefloor killer titletrack, “Breath Control” remastered, and 2 club-ready remixes by Zweifelhaft and Device Noize. The EP is available for digital download and deserved many amazing reviews, bringing high expectations for their second upcoming full length album.
In fact, another stunning concept-opus made the alliance with SkyQode label perfect: “The Abyss Effect” is more than a concept-album, it's an interface to the modern Inferno! Mixed by Synapsyche, mastered by Jan L. at X-Fusion Music Production and distributed by SkyQode, it's available as limited digipak CD with bonus track or digital download in May 13th 2016 and it will make you beg for more.
In July 15th, to satisfy this thirst, Synapsyche releases a cover of the Apoptygma Berzerk's hit “Bitch” included in the tribute compilation “Apop We Love You” edited by Electrozombies.
2017 is another great year to spread their music, 'cause in April 7th the band releases for SkyQode the new amazing EP “This Is Gonna Hurt”, available for digital download and including 2 brand new songs and hot remixes by C-Lekktor, Freaky Mind, T-Error Machinez and Unity One.
During the years, Synapsyche made remixes for songs of No Forgiveness, Warsickle, Halo Effect, Centeotl, Dark Soul, Device Noize, Entropia Psicotica, Chamaeleon, Thornsectide, Studio-X vs. Simon Carter, Binary Division, First Black Pope and Trakktor.
Meanwhile, the band keeps playing astonishing live shows in influential clubs and events of the italian ground (as the show at Decadence in Bologna), headlining and supporting famous acts as [X]-Rx and FGFC820.
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 balanced between melody, rage and nihilism. Lyrics, however direct and basic, are incisive and original in their celebration of vice and madness, the perfect themes 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.
