Release Date:3rd April 2023
What’s that deep rumbling coming from the midlands of the UK? It's Mansfield’s finest Syncolmia with “Wavelengths” a hard-hitting unrelenting pounding release to wake up and piss off the neighbours!
Based around Josh Guitar /Vocals, Gazz Evans's Drums /Vocals, and Stoff on Bass these masterful riff masters open proceedings as the addictive “Beautiful Unsold” takes no prisoners with bone-crushing riffs and head-banging fury it's guaranteed to rock your socks off with its heavy bass and streaming guitars a sure-fire anthem that has the listener instantly hooked.
The album continues to impress as the fun-fuelled and wickedly addictive “Riff” steps into the arena of hard rocking horns in the air metal delirium.
It's a riff-laden anthem and does exactly what it says on the tin! With the thumping rhythm section delivering the goods this good-time rocker will leave a Cheshire cat-sized grin on your face I promise ya!
Indeed a real pounding piece of riffage opens up proceedings, then guys then bring it down a touch, its multi-layered approach is stunning.
“Communicide” works its way into your conscience with its killer move and grooves, I would say this track and the previous one are my favourites on here, well today anyway!
We delve into “New Beginnings” a doom-laden piece, with some killer moments hinting at some Sabbathesque tones.
The title track “Wavelengths” slows things right down to a real atmospheric number with some chunky monkey lines to boot as this number reaches its zenith. Simply adore the riff-strewn thumping bass fuelled rocker “Death of an enemy”. The rollercoaster ride of “The Dregs” twists and turns and makes some killer hooks it’s a fist-pumping head bangingly addictive song.
Love the lyrics and the way “In the muck again” courses into the room with some great bass lines and monster drums this builds into a face-melting finale. The penultimate song “Dead and gone” is a heavy-laden tune that simply pummels the senses. “Pound of Flesh” brings this platter to a close, it’s a slow burner that captures the real songwriting talents of the band, a stellar end to a hellishly impressive work of art.
I am sure this release will see them added to established festivals and more this year as “Wavelengths” is the real deal a pure-bred titan of no-bullshit hard-hitting riffalicious anthems awaits you!
