Album Review: SYNESTHESIA – Synners and Saints

 

 

 

Steeltown USA Records ( Release date – out now)

Synethesia claim to encompass many rock styles, taking in power and prog metal, thrash and punk, quite a heady mix. The results of this rock mash-up are rather good as it happens with the prog and power metal taking a front seat for the most part.

There are eight tracks for your delectation here and all are worth a spin, the stand outs being ‘True Believers’, which could grace any Priest album and not feel out of place, and the full on instrumental track ‘Effigy Of The Forgotten’, which has some mighty fine playing on display from all band members, the guitar and keyboard work being of particular note.

This is a good album with plenty to enjoy. If you like a bit of classic power/prog metal then you could do a lot worse.

***1/2
