SONIC SYNDICATE – »Sonic Syndicate« out ... - 2014-07-04 12:00

2014-07-04 12:00 - Anglo-Swedish modern metal powerhouse SONIC SYNDICATE have released their brand new, self-titled album today! The entire album can be checked out via an exclusive online stream over at: http://smarturl.it/SonicSyndicateStream

The band recently posted the first part of a series of trailers in which every member of the band talks their favorite track of the new, fifth album. Watch guitarist and songwriter Robin Sjunnesson talk his favourite at this location:


Recently the official music video for the second single, 'Before You Finally Break', has been released. The clip was shot by renowned director Patric Ullaeus (IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR, CHILDREN OF BODOM, etc) and features SOILWORK singer Björn 'Speed' Strid on guest vocals. A exclusive Making Of has been made available here:

Commented singer Nathan James Biggs: „I'm honored to call Speed a friend. I've been a big SOILWORK fan for years. Those guys were a massive hand in crafting that trademark Swedish sound so it made perfect sense to ask Speed when we knew we wanted to do a song with guest vocals. Performance wise I think we have similar styles and execution, but at the same time we both have our own thing going on so the voices compliment each other to great effect. My idea was also to have a real battle between our vocals. I hate it when you have these "featuring" songs and the guest just pops up for a chorus and then does backing vocals for a while in the verse or something. This is a real fight between us for the mic and I'm sure people are gonna appreciate that.“

Bjorn “Speed” Strid adds:
“Working with Sonic Syndicate is always a pleasure, whether it's in the studio, tour, or in a cool looking abandoned car shop in the industrial area of Gothenburg. I loved recording vocals on this song and especially being able to do somewhat of a duet with Nathan Biggs. He's a truly talented singer and a good friend. Doing the video was easy, fun and pretty intense at the same time. It turned out real sick.. Check it out!”

Commented guitarist, main songwriter and founding member, Robin Sjunnesson: "We decided to go with this one as a “Self-Titled” release. Mainly because as an album we have put everything we’ve got into it. All of our experience as musicians, the evolution of the music, the sound from all eras of the band, and also the road we have taken as people. This is us, this is Sonic Syndicate in all its beauty and destruction. It shows our strength, our love for melody, our scars, our energy. The cover art is a definite representation of that. In the background, a battle-torn city laid to waste, four figures emerging together with only each other to depend on in an environment so harsh, only those with a tough heart, body and soul can survive. The tone throughout this album is definitely darker, and as my Swedish family would say “With a red-line running in the middle” so we put this into the colour-scheme. We could not be more proud of this album, and we thank our fans for the support, it's because of them that we’re here. This album is for you.”











The album includes a total of 11 tracks while the limited edition digipak will feature no less than 3 bonus tracks on top.

Commented the band: "It’s crazy, exciting, and mind-blowing to be back! The one thing we were looking forward to more than hitting the studio, was getting back on the road and seeing our fans, and now we have a killer new album to go out with! We can’t wait for you to hear the new material, and of course we’ll be ripping apart the stage with our favorite songs from all our albums! It is our personal mission to guarantee that these will be our most kick-ass, energetic and dynamic live shows yet. If you’ve seen SOSY live before then you’re gonna want to see the “Diabolical Tour of Art” as its gonna be bigger, better and more bad-ass. If you’ve never seen SOSY live before then now is the perfect time to join the party, and get to one of the cities we’re playing. Damn, this is gonna be good!”
