British heavy/prog metal five-piece, Synaptik from Norwich, UK recently announced the re-release of their incredibly successful debut album, The Mechanisms of Consequence as a heavier remixed album, due out on January 30th.
The Norwich men show no signs of slowing down as they are set to make a huge impact in 2017 by following it up with the release of their highly anticipated sophomore album, Justify & Reason, out March 10th.
For US fans, it’s a double dose of metal as the remix album and the new album, Justify & Reason will be released as a double album directly via Divebomb Records.
The first pre-orders for this collection will be available on February 1st 2017 from the band’s website.
Synaptik describe Justify & Reason as: “A collection exhibiting real finesse, true technicality but not at the expense of neck-snapping riffs and a progressive air that’s both bracing and intimidatingly menacing.”
The UK and US version of Justify & Reason come with different artworks, as seen below.
Both UK and US editions have the same track listing. However the US version has the remix album as a bonus disc.
Justify & Reason Track Listing:
1. The Incredible Machine
