“Synastry deliver their brand of classic death metal with an industrial twist. The result is a Thrashy head-long experiment into the brutal and somewhat futuristic. Musically tight and heavy with mean riffs, Synastry try to head into a new direction for Metal.” – Sea of Tranquility

“Montreal-based metal maulers Synastry play a brutal yet groovy style of death metal with fringes of industrial that recall bands such as Fear Factory and Killing Joke with the savagery of acts like Kataklysm.” – Gears of Rock


1. Guitars, drums, and bass were tracked with JF Dagenais. Vocals were tracked by Christian Donaldson. Samples were done with Kevin Jardine. The mixing was all done by JF Dagenais and the mastering was done by Jef Fortin. We chose the cream of the crop when we recorded and got this amazing result.

2. The lyrical concept for this EP and the rest of the EPs we are planning on releasing are written from the viewpoint of the individual’s view on themselves in relation to society. The hope that the individual can take the responsibility to be ‘better’ for the whole while not compromising their own wants, needs, and beliefs. Inspiration is drawn from Jimmy’s life and things he has seen his friends and family live through.

3. The lyrics for these songs and all other SYNASTRY songs to be released all find themselves in a kind of disjointed tapestry that follows an ever-growing story.

4. Creating and releasing music as a band in 2020 is an interesting task, and we are looking at ways of reaching a wide audience. We want to explore all media sources, not just the streaming platforms. We are kind of goofy and I think that’s what makes people attracted to us. We kind of want to have this image that we are very serious music makers, but that we are relatable and likable and have appeal to a wide variety of people. personally I think we can reach a big audience if we integrate the social media route into our music releases (youtube channel w vlogs, short weekly or bi-weekly episodes, active on Instagram, etc) Basically metal influencers.

It takes courage for a band to integrate such distinct thrash, death, and industrial influences into a catchy yet multilayered approach as do Montreal’s Synastry.
Each metal listener desires something different and thus a band exists for every taste. Inspired to a certain point by melodic, futuristic death thrash, Synastry binds to these influences a threatening mid-paced groove, atmospheric textures, and the unmistakable gruff and mature vocals of Jimmy Aniston. Flanked by guitarist Paul Iverson and bassist Gary Vee, and backed up by the thunderous Kay Kessler, Synastry is a crushing wall of well thought out and meticulously written metal. Lyrics come from Anastasopolous’ impression of the world and his experiences in it which are layered with the collaborative music that all band members contribute to.

Started originally in the early 00s, the Montreal band took the underground scene by storm, they climbed the Myspace ranks, toured the regions, and released “Pallets Of My New World” (2006) (EP) and Blind Eyes Bleed (2008) (LP). In 2012, the band went dormant, where they remained until 2020.

The socially conscious band awoke amidst the widespread uncertainty that swept the globe, with a mission to explore humanity, the singularity, and morality. Forged in the hotbed of metal that is Montreal, they are here to raise the temperature once again with the release of their new EP “Civilization’s Coma” on November 27th.
