Genre/Influences: Dark-Electro, EBM.

Format: Digital.

Background/Info: This EP by Italian formation Synapsyche was originally released in 2015 on skyQode. The re-release features one extra song.

Content: This EP hasn’t lost its original magic, mixing brutal beats together with raw leads and aggressive bass lines. The songs are mixing elements of EBM and Dark-Electro, the vocals being totally devoted to Dark-(h)El(l)ectro. All the songs are cool and even the remixes by Zweifelhaft and Device Noize are worthy of examination. The extra song at this re-release is a surprising cover version of Apoptygma Berzerk’s early hit “Bitch”.

+ + + : This EP brings us back to the ‘early’ years of the band and I personally prefer this work to what they’ve done during the past years. I even consider this work as the best one they ever released; a perfect and heavy mix between EBM and dark-Electro. “Whore Wide Web” is a true smasher and especially its harsh, scratching lead sounds phenomenal. “Breath Control” is another great song while I also recommend listening to the remix of “Blame Index 100%” by Device Noize. The original version was featured on the band’s debut album “Crashdown Connected” (2014).

– – – : Quite surprisingly, the title song isn’t my favorite one. The cover version of “Bitch” is cool, but clearly more efficient for live performances.

Conclusion: Synapsyche brings us back to their past, revealing an essential piece in their discography.

Best songs: “Whore Wide Web”, “Breath Control”, “Hate And Psyche”.

Rate: (7½).
