"Mourn amongst the flowers. These tears will never dry. Sounds of screaming adorn the darkest night. Love of misery in winter's warmth. Offspring of a demon sleeps within."
Immerging from the Australian metal scene in 2005, Synnove brought with it an EP full of doomy atmospheric black metal. Formed in 2002 by former bassist and lyricist of Virgin Black, Brad Bessel, now on guitar, one can bet that this first output of the band is a solid piece of metal. Screechy black metal throats, haunting keyboards, massive riffing guitars, and chilling side effects come together to make this EP blast you in the heart and soul! Having played with the likes of The Eternal, Darklord, The Loving Tongue, Equal Minded, Chalice, Blood Mason and Quasar, this young south Australian extreme band is undoubtedly going to bring us more metal in the future! If you are enthralled by Virgin Black, Dimmu Borgir, Dark Funeral, Cradle of Filth, My Dying Bride, Lengsel, Borgazur, Dying Blaze, Crimson Moonlight, and Satyricon then you will love Synnove. Synnove is one of those bands that start out as a well kept secret but quickly become a predominant influence in the industry. Make sure you get this EP before they disappear! Oh! And keep your eyes peeled for the band's 2008 full length release "The Whore and the Bride".
"In misty stillness a shadow weeps. I am nothing (hideous) you are the dark. Slain men lay before the throne. Creator of plague, lover of chains...
"...In the darkened room beauty is no more. Riddles of emperor's dread entangled in the woods. Call of the grave so near. If only my eyes could see beyond the gaze of black doves."
