Lisbon, Portugal’s Leather Synn was formed in 2011 by several Dawnrider members and issued a self-titled EP in 2013. Rockhard left the band following the EP’s release. Undertaker’s Alcides Pinto was in.
The band’s name was inspired in a project Xico Steele had in 2009 with Hugo simply called Leather. Manimal owns Non Nobis Productions to which the band signed.
LEATHER SYNN - Same - NON NOBIS
The demo contains four song of standard and authentic heavy metal that were issued to the public in 2013, but might just as well be the product of 1983. Not only is the musical arrangement reminiscent of the bands of the style’s heydays, but the recording hearken to the bygone days. Listen carefully and hear a few riffs newer bands like Hammerfall proudly plagiarize, but a line could be drawn between what Leather Synn is delivering today and what Faithful Breath did so many years ago. Of all the members the lead guitarist is the most remarkable with his catchy and metallic harmonies. The vocalist has a desperate and nasal voice. His range is limited, but his voice is perfect to the style. Synn Is Ynn sounds cheesy, but no matter for it is the favourite song of the four here. Other remarkable songs title is Committed To Metal of course! The woman on the cover is so excited to be there that she has resorted to masturbation, which makes it all the more disappointing that Metallian Towers has received the limited edition cover where part of her anatomy has been cut off. In either format she is overdressed. - Ali “The Metallian”
