"This is an incredibly intelligent, superbly performed and brilliantly realised debut album, from an assured, confident and fantastic new sound."
— James R. Turner - Prog Radar

"High quality. Amazing. Breathtaking. A brand new album (by a new band to most of us) that screams and deserves to be checked out. Right now."
— André de Boer - DPRP.net

You don't need to know Japanese to see how the album scored though and I'd say 8-7-8--7 looks pretty good to me.

Evvai!!!

SYNCAGE is an experimental fusion of jazz, metal, rock, ambience, with some touches of classic Italian prog.
As they put it themselves, “Syncage are a musical project which aims to sting listeners’ resonance through various psycho emotional devices”.

Mel Allen — The Progressive Aspect

Brothers Matteo and Riccardo Nicolin have been playing music together since childhood, but it was not until high school that the group we now know as Syncage began to take shape. The brothers encountered bassist and flautist Daniele Tarabini at Matteo’s 14th birthday party in 2008, and they soon formed a band. At a youth orchestra event the following year, three became four as violinist and pianist Matteo Graziani joined, and Rising Horizons was born.
Rising Horizons played live at several concerts and contests from 2010 to 2012, establishing a reputation and releasing original music. If there had been any doubt about their progressive credentials, the 10-minute title track of their 2010 demo Crimson Skies Straight Ahead cast that aside! In 2011, the quartet released a single, Embrace the Paradox, composed their first full-length album, and embarked upon their first “isolation week”, spending seven full days in a secluded cabin in the mountains to create new music free of distractions.
2013 was a watershed year for the band. Though they played a few concerts, they agreed that their sound had begun to stagnate and they had become stuck in the identity they’d built for themselves. Their tastes had evolved and it was time for a change, and, at the beginning of the year, they reinvented themselves under the name we recognize today: Syncage.
2014 was when things really started moving again. The band’s first single under their new name, Hellhound, was successful and well-received, and established a distinctive, exciting new sound for Syncage; later that year, the Italiota EP built upon it. This rush of momentum carried them through a string of new concerts, playing to bigger crowds than ever before.
Regular performances had to be put on hold when Matteo Nicolin moved to the Netherlands in late 2014. Nonetheless, Syncage made the most of the time they could spend together, creating and rehearsing, and in 2015, opened the prestigious 2Days Prog + 1 festival in Veruno to a very promising reception. Matteo Nicolin also began work on composing what would become Syncage’s first studio album, the other three offering their contributions from back in Italy.
August 2016 saw Syncage lock themselves away in the mountains once again, this time for three weeks, and, when they emerged, they were ready to record Unlike Here, which finally reached the public in May 2017 via British record label Bad Elephant Music. They followed it up with a European tour that reached Sweden, the Netherlands, as well as their native Italy.
This is just the beginning for Syncage. New projects, new ventures, and new music await!
