Electronic/ dark ambient/industrial – POLAND

Synta(XE)rror are Polish tandem consists of two musicians/artists – Artur BLACHA Blaszczyk and Bartosz KOSTIA Jakubicki. They have released four albums, and during the period of existence, they did not have a continuous career path.


Actual product done as a limited CD and digital, and like a previous album “Dot” from 2021, they have released for “Zoharum” label. Four extended tracks were recorded in home environment during 2008.


An “aggressive” atmosphere, accompanied by hypnotic rhythm phrases and often less expected transitions, is the dominant element on all the recordings presented here and there. Dark ambient, electronic and strong industrial “intrusions” combined with “loud”, but not infrequently unexpected  outbursts represent a creative challenge , that the actors set for themselves. The completely prepared material confirms the author’s intelligence of this act, and the release itself, is recommended to all followers of the mentioned genre variants.
