Synapse Defect is an incantation of deep legend, going much further back than one might imagine. To this day, the exact history of the band is still shrouded in a veil of mystery, destroyed by a revolution and buried by time. Consisting of five live performing artist, that are pulled from and rotated through a large age old group of closely associated artists of different nationality with a proposed common lineage, that often change their names to protect their anonymity and traceability. Current given names for live performing members are: Snap Hard, Chuck Cheney, Mr. Friendly, Krakerbeard and Donny Darko. Known existing alias's for non-performing members are: Jack Numen, Ben Skinner, Brenton Blakely, Ryan, Opie, Raff, Maximus, John Henderson, Bob Fatula, Gary Savage, Alex Mayeske, Lee Face, Brian Gray, Buzz, Cat Neely, Ulf Ulm Waterwalker, Froil Froinlaven, Esteban Anastasio, Patrick Thomas, Justin Brown, Aaron Burr, Bjorn the Slayer and Trapper-Keeper of the Cosmos. Anonymity is a core fundamental for the group, for them, it matters not so much who accomplishes, but more so that important works simply be accomplished. Hand picked from many different cultures across the globe and proclaimed by Grigori Rasputin to the Emperor of Russia, Nicholas II, as the direct decedents of the original bloodlines in which many prophets such as Abraham, Moses & Mohammad were born of. A conglomerated group of around 30-40 of the most exceptional artists, were granted protection by the Emperor and stationed at a secret location, a walled compound believed to be located Approximately 50 miles south of St. Petersburg along the Oredezh River. All of these artists, many of which painters, poets, singers, jokers, tricksters, skilled marksmen, fighters, dancers, magicians, clairvoyants, blacksmiths, etc.. were also all musicians of one kind or another and shared one peculiar trait in common. They possessed a physical need to indulge into unconventional uses of musical notes, many would describe as unpleasant or atonal. This unconventional use of notes in music was a common practice and a way of life for the artists, the music was used to heal physical wounds, cure debilities, and even slow aging. Some of the "older" artists who only looked to be 40 or 50, claimed to be over 150 years old, and none able to recall their exact age. Often they were called upon to entertain the royal family. Although very few common folk were even aware of the group of artists, as the entire project was an extravagant spending of resources that the Emperor wanted to conceal from the common people. With the Bolsheviks beginning to gain more political power in the region, a growing sentiment of distaste for the Emperor was beginning to sweep over Russia. In fear of the artists being discovered and killed for their association to the Autocracy. Sometime between 1913 and 1916, the Emperor ordered the artists to be removed from the Country and that the compound on the Oredezh River be deserted and destroyed. Nicholas II reportedly arranged the safe relocation of the Artists with Peter Demens, who was to personally oversee their arrival to the United States of America. Demens was sworn to protect the group of artists, and died only several years after, taking their identities and possible whereabouts with him, to his grave. Many of the artists were said to have settled in the swamps of Middle Florida in the early 1920's and continued to assist the rise of free atonality in music. Growing strong from eating plenty of oranges and gator tail, The artists studied under the great Jazz master Sam Rivers for many years before beginning their journey to the City of the Phoenix. The bands great run north (estimated 1965-1966) was said to have lasted 6 grueling weeks and was reportedly traveled on foot, as a testament of will. Unfortunately the Band ran so fast, they went right past their intended destination and ended up somewhere in the Blue Ridge of North Georgia. Exhausted from their travels, and surprisingly delighted by the local flowers and moonshine, the band decided to settle in for some time, chickin-picking the nights away! This Bluegrass induced drunken stupor lasted many years, and any memories from this time remain hazy, only vague recollections at best can be recalled of their dealings in the Blue Ridge. Sometime after the year 2007, the band mysteriously vanished from the blue ridge. Local rumor has it, that a traveling carnival gypsy gave the band some tea tainted with Jimson Weed, they all went mad, threw their mouth harps, mandolins and banjo's into a wood chipper, and began referring to themselves as "Synapse Defect" and became obsessed once again to find the City that rose from the ashes, they set fourth on their pilgrimage once again, and vanished from the Blue Ridge. Durring this time of roaming(est 2007-2012), much "catching up" was done as to the state of society, its issues and politics. Mutually disgusted with the current state, the band decided the metal genre would be the most optimal vector for their musical manifestations, the complex rhythms of jazz and metal combined with bands natural tendency towards atonality proved to be a robust concoction with a clear objective to rewire consciousness. Going against the grain of the typical death metal vocal structure, the lyrical content of remains rhythmic and in most cases rhyming. Although, one would still not be likely to identify a chorus or "hook" amongst the bands songs. Often rhetorical or sarcastic, the lyrics typically have a strong political, social and economical message, robust with cold logic that give a unique and often enlightening perspective to the essential concepts that make up our reality today. The music extends a vast array of, bludgeoning gravity blasts, linear and poly rhythmic drumming, extremely technical jazz influenced riffing with a conservative amount of super slick lead guitar action. And to contrast such chaos the band still often breaks the music down to more basic, "catchy" parts that get all wrapped up into one clean, distinguishably raw package, that is "Synapse Defect". Amongst the genre's the band has been labeled under, include Death Metal, Grindcore, Math-Metal, Experimental, Hardcore, Jazz Metal, Tech-Metal, Thrash, and Speed Metal. Members of the group have casually admitted, that the composure's created, listened to over time and repetition, are specifically designed to expand connections to previously unused parts of the brain. Transient for many years, reportedly living & traveling in a full sized Blue Bird school bus that they fueled with vegetable oil, they surfaced for sporadic live performances at house parties, parks, dive bars and nightclubs across the Continental United States, leaving their spectators in various degrees of awe and confusion. Two full length studio albums were released during this time, "conspiracy to overthrow..." and "basal taxon" and can still be found and purchased today if one looks hard enough. In 2013 the band met an especially dirty wook jacked up on Salvia Divinorum that claimed he knew the way to the City of the Phoenix, and said he would take them to the city but they would EACH have to eat 1/4 pound of dried Salvia leaves in order to get there and he would only do this for them in exchange for their bus. After some deliberation, desperate to complete their initial pilgrimage, the band unanimously agreed and began choking down the ridiculous amount of dry Salvia leaves, after a journey that seemed to eternally transcend through space and time they had finally awoken in the legendary city itself, Atlanta! Now stationed at their studio on the outskirts of Atlanta Georgia along Sweetwater Creek, the band continues to write and record, a new full length album that is to go by the name "quantitative easing" expected to be released 2018.
