1. Metalcore band from Mechelen, Belgium Syncope wants music to strike the right note with listeners. They describe their music as: "metal with the majority of metalcore influences."
It is very difficult and almost impossible to be original in metalcore. Syncope wants to prove with their new album, The Ascent, that they don't belong in the "box" of metalcore. Their music is more varied and they incorporate screams and clean singing in original choruses. With an eye for detail, guitarharmony and strong songwriting, Syncope tries to be an accessible alternative.
