Formed in 2010, , CYNARAE (pronounced ‘Sin-Ar-uh’) are a supremely brutal metallic hardcore band featuring members of NW mainstays The Helm.
Combining the influences of 90’s Bremen metalcore (Morser/Systral) with their US counterparts (His Hero Is Gone/The Swarm), CYNARAE have been quickly making a name for themselves based on their incredible self-released EP and intense live performance to boot.
A389’s Domenic Romeo’s first encounter with the band was perfect from the start. He explains…’I knew upon first listen that I had to do something with CYNARAE. It was just so brutal and uncompromising. It’s bands like this that keep me excited about releasing new music.’
CYNARAE vocalist Kyle Oels continues….’We really feel like A389 is the ideal label for us. When we were first starting, we talked about record labels that we could see ourselves releasing albums on…We all saw A389 as the best fit. Imagine our surprise when Dom contacted us shortly after posting our EP online and said he was interested in releasing something’.
Having kept things under wraps until now, A389 has finally announced they will be releasing music by CYNARAE in 2012 via a vinyl release of the band’s self titled EP, as well as a split LP with West Virginia powerhouse Ancient Shores. In the meantime, the band has made some music available online for free and are hitting the road later this month (dates posted below).
