CrankItUp.se conducted an interview with Swedish/British modern metallers SONIC SYNDICATE and their producer Toby Wright (KORN, SLAYER, MÖTLEY CRÜE, KISS, FEAR FACTORY, IN FLAMES, STONE SOUR, OZZY OSBOURNE) during the recording sessions for the band's new album at Bohus Sound studios in Kungälv, Sweden. Watch the chat below.
SONIC SYNDICATE's new album is tentatively scheduled for release in May via Nuclear Blast Records.
Commented the band's latest addition, British singer Nathan James Biggs (formerly of THE HOLLOW EARTH THEORY): "I've been a fan of Toby's work for years. I grew up listening to KORN, SEVENDUST, SLAYER and TAPROOT, and now I am sat next to this dude and he is doing our new album! This is the shit dreams are made of!"
SONIC SYNDICATE is keeping a studio diary at Rockspot.se.
SONIC SYNDICATE's "Burn This City" video was shot with director Patric Ullaeus (DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL) of Revolver Film Company.
"Burn This City", which marked the recording debut of Biggs, was one of two tracks that were laid down at Abyss studios in Pärlby, outside Ludvika, Sweden. Both cuts appeared on a new EP, "The Rebellion Pack", which was released on November 9, 2009 as part of an all-in-one-package with the group's latest album, "Love And Other Disasters".
The cover artwork for "The Rebellion Pack" was created by Gustavo Savez of Abstrata Art.
