Syrinx came together in a slanted farmhouse outside of Vancouver. Featuring members of bands Spell and Traveller; SYRINX was first born as a rotating cast of members embarking on formless musical journeys and experiments. As the material solidified and the vision became more clear, three recording sessions captured the essence of what you hear on “Embrace the Dark - Seek the Light”.
Focusing on progressive and intuitive song writing, Syrinx moves easily between twisting, slithering, build ups and dramatic, pounding crescendos. With nods to everything from early Genesis to later Voivod, this is Heavy Rock for the wandering mind and hungry spirit.
Following a series of spectacle-heavy shows that confounded and bewildered local audiences, Syrinx went into a hibernation due to the departure of our bass player.
The core of Syrinx remains, however, and you will surely hear from them again in new and unexpected sounds to come.
