About Synaptik

  • SYNAPTIK is an British heavy metal band from the East Coast of England. Formed in 2012, known to incorporate elements from styles such as thrash, power, progressive.
    Synaptik aren't afraid to mix up the influences and certainly don't fear melody with their heavier than a black hole riffage and dynamic vocals, death metal aggressiveness with a progressive, melodic outlook. They draw on influences old and new to create a mutant hybrid sound-scape that makes them stand out. 

    Synaptik are currently at the mixing stage with their début album “The Mechanisms of Consequence” due for release this summer on German Label 'Rebel Tune Records'. 
    A video for the single “Your Cold Dead Trace” will also be available soon. 
    The single features guest vocals from Alan Tecchio (Watchtower/Hades/Non Fiction/Seven Witches)

    "SYNAPTIK combines the attack of melodic death metal with the deadly subtlety of progressive metal. The band comes with a remarkable pedigree and features members who count Download festival appearances and guest slots with the likes of Exodus, Skyclad and Iron Maiden amongst their achievements. Expect a dizzying double-barreled assault of intricate melody and sheer power"
    M..J (Powerplay Magazine)

    Synaptik are :

    John Knight – Vocals
    Ian Knight – Guitar
    Kev Jackson – Bass
    Pete Loades – Drums
    Jack Murton – Lead Guitars



"Since forming in 2012 from the ashes of such bands as Fifth Season, Inner Sanctum, and Twisted Autumn Darkness, the primary concern of Norwich, England’s SYNAPTIK has been musical intensity. Compartmentalizing SYNAPTIK‘s approach is as futile
