SynlakrosS is a Spanish female fronted band which plays a Melodic Death Metal base with some of alternative metal, nu metal and metalcore influences. With their music and thematic lyrics they inject a good dose of energy and that transport your mind to a world of adventure with a good deal of rebellion. Sharp riffs and powerful rhythms accompanying a female voice with soft melodies and crazy screams that will caress and shake your eardrum equally.
Their influences are bands as In Flames, The Gazette, Korn, Slipknot, Dir En Grey, Lamb of God, among others.
Then band was formed in 2008 by Pablo ‘Roro’ and Tiko Martinez (ex-drummer), and the line-up was closed in 2010. The SynlakrosS crew consists of five talented members well know for their charisma on stage, passionate music and proximity with their fans.
Since the beginning, SynlakrosSS has been building a solid worldwide fan base.
In 2011 they released "SynlakrosS" demo and in 2013 their first album "Melodichrome", which was succeded by the singles "Wish I Had An Angel" in 2014 and "Drangon Egg" in 2015. Was this year when they were proclaimed WINNERS of the contest GRANITO ROCK FESTIVAL in the METAL SECTION, receiving national recognition and when they shared stage with bands such as SARATOGA, VITA IMANA and ANGELUS APATRIDA.
Their second album 'Death Bullets For A Forajido', available since May 26, 2016, is always receiving excellent reviews from around the world. This album is a turning point in their career that has allowed them to share stage with the international bands THE AGONIST and JINJER on their Spanish tours and PRIMAL FEAR at Granito Rock Festival. Thanks to this work they have chosen 'Revelation Band of the Year', 'Best Album', 'Best Album Cover' and 'Best Music Video' by national and international press.
The evolution continues with 'Malice Murder', her third album that combines supernatural horror, violence, satanism and sensuality in her songs. Released on October 16, 2018, with this album SynlakrosS has been on tour in PORTUGAL, ENGLAND and WALES.
Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the dates that were scheduled for spring-summer in France, Switzerland, Germany, and Belgium have had to be canceled, including the MISE OPEN AIR festival where they are going to share the stage with bands like VADER , DESTRUCTION, GRAVE DIGGER, BURNING WITCHES and many more. Postponed to June 2022.
0K4M1 is the the las LP, published in 2021. With this fourth album, SynlakroS has reached a new level of originality, creativity and maturity that is solidified in this 'Opera Rock', about a half-human, half-alien creature sending us a message from somewhere millions of light years away.
A dark but beautiful album, sad but full of energy.
Their new work called "Ideas Are Bulletproof", published in March 2022, consists of three songs that were included in his first
demo, named with the same name of the band, which was published in 2011.
The reason why SynlakrosS has rewritten and recomposed these songs is due to the 10th anniversary of their release, which was last year. And whose publication has had to be postponed
until this year.
This is a short but intense EP, where you can see, with a lot of forcefulness and mastery, how the
band has grown in these ten years, at a musical, technical and compositional level. A delight for lovers of melodic death metal and metal in general.
SynlakrosS is working on their fifth album, while they are touring with their 2023 European tour..
