Synergy Protocol: The unity in a set of regulations.
Yes, my dear readers, we are talking about the new Dutch metal-sensation. But… a progressive metal sensation. Progressive, because the music contains a lot of stuff that makes it more complicated than absolutely necessary. We don't really know what is progressive about that, but that is how they call it anyway. Metal, as the guitars are usually loud. Get the chance to listen to this at their in February released demo.
The sets of rules have emerged from various influences, taste, quality and ages. Wim Smits is the founding member and has been terrorizing European stages ever since the eighties as the party animal from Jewel. Laura Guldemond studies at the Metal Factory to hit her notes perfectly in tune and move you to tears. Big M, Maarten Heeringa, is the second elderly youngster. Together with Mark Roelofs, he turns our music into metal. The outstanding craftsmanship of our 'Benjamin', correctly called Patrick van Mourik, provides a solid base. And last but not least: Mr. Apple, who modestly observes the mayhem up front while reproducing his keyboard sounds.
Altogether this forms a fascinating soundcloud from tranquility to dynamite, facilitated by intriguing compositions, well balanced arrangements, vocal harmonies, lyrical atmospheric images, catchy melodies, excellent musicianship and most of all: huge, huge amounts of fun.
Hence: Synergy Protocol!
