Staff review by
Darkside Momo
Synestesia are a band from Finland, but they do not play (extreme) power metal, funeral doom, or gothic/suomi, the three subgenres generally associated with their home country.

Their weapon of choice? Melodic death metal, in pure Gothenburg fashion. They are clearly inspired by the best In Flames or Soilwork... Except that it is all sung in Finnish. It doesn't sound strange when grunted, but during the clean vocals parts it really sounds strange and exotic to an untrained ear like mine (and don't even ask me what they are singing about).
