The 76th track on our free download compilation “Face The Beat: Session 4” (featuring 92 tracks) is by the Finland based hard electro act Syncfactory.

Syncfactory was formed in late 2009 in Tampere, Finland as a one man project by Mika Mikkola. Musically, the band sticks to dark electro/industrial combining modern harsh sounds with some influences from the 90’s industrial music movement.

The band’s debut album ”Rhymes in Minor” was released in 2010 and held tracks written in collaboration with lyricist Petri Kiukkonen. In 2014 Janne Vilen joined the band as the main vocalist. Janne was no newbie to the scene as he had already recorded material with the Finnish EBM band Oldschool Union.

A new single ”Demon” was released in september 2016, a teaser for the band’s second album ”Panopticon”. In 2016, Petri Kiukkonen also joined as a full-time member.

You can find the project back on Facebook, make sure to check it out.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
