Interviews: Synastry


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Death Metal/Groove Metal band, Synastry, from Canada. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

In the past, we would spend an eternity to find the right band name. This time, we just went with a gut feeling, something that sounds cool, that’s not too long and defines us. Synastry is the relationship between two astrological signs. Although we aren’t really into astrology, the meaning of the word describes us as friends, how we always have been on the same page and agree on all band/music related decisions unanimously.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We were all into some sort of rock, grunge, and punk music at a young age; we just never knew what truly defined us individually. We eventually slowly migrated to Metal, the more we would listen to it the heavier we wanted the next song to be. We eventually developed a taste for fast-paced, heavy riffs and decided to try it for ourselves. The drums were a big attraction to me (Kay) as no other type of music has drums at the METAL level.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

We are all high school friends and kept a close relationship afterward. Paul (Guitars) was the only one we met after through a friend. He was looking for some musicians to just practice with, nothing serious. Once we met him, we clicked right away and we all starting jamming, the rest is history.

4. Each band member favourite band?

James- my all-time favourite band is In Flames. Current faves are mostly proggy, djent bands. I also have developed a taste for satirical music like the lonely island  

Kay- Does anyone really have a favourite band, song, or movie? There is just too much talent out there. I’m currently listening to Veil of Maya, Shokran, heart of a coward, within the ruins. New inflames albums.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

In Flames, Arch Enemy, Strapping Young Lad, Fear Factory, Dimmu Borgir, Children of Bodom, Veil of Maya, Shokran, Heart of a Coward, Within The Ruins. Anything Djent right now. Listening to our current and past favourites motivate us to get to creating music of our own. If you live the dream, it's life, not a dream

6. Where was your last gig?

We just resurfaced from a 10-year hiatus, right in the middle of the pandemic. Bad timing for live shows. That being said, the last gig we had live was in August 2009

7. Where would you like to act?

Cameo in an Avengers movie. Or maybe be the band on stage if there's ever an ace Ventura reboot or part 3

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

In Flames, they are one of the very first true heavy metal bands we’ve all listened to. To share a stage would them would be an honor.

9. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Kay(drummer) was always the lucky one because he can hide behind his kit. James(singer) always remember that the crowd paid to see you, so you have to act like it. Stage fright is in your mind, and only serves against your own enjoyment in performing the music you love The most important tip we can give beginners is to practice daily, for hours! When you are confident in handling your instrument, everything comes with it. The first times you may have stage fright but that shortly fades away once you start playing, the confidence will kick in and everything will be fine. Start smaller venues with small crowds. Never be afraid to make a mistake live, it’s a learning experience, however, practice to perfection before!

10. What bands have inspired you the most?

Question 4 and 5

11. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

A vial of blood, spit, semen, and a sample of our hair and fingernails. We declined

12. What do you think of your fans?

Well, we have been dormant for 10 years and are in the process of re-emerging from the ashes, hopefully, we can require some of our old fans and gain new ones. Our old fans were great and always kept a positive interaction with them through Myspace back in the day.

13. What do you think of our site?

We are looking forward to seeing more of it. Definitely a great way to stay up to date with music

14. Something to add?

Is great to work with you guys during our time of re-emergence. Much more new material coming up. Keep an eye out on our social media and streaming platforms.
