Originally hailing from Pella, Iowa, the band's evolving sound – a nearly mystical marriage between rock and classical – was informed by a curious duality. Cutler, who spent 15 years studying classical piano, explains, “When I was in high school I listened to a lot of metal bands. Both genres are intricate, complex types of music that are very dramatic, and I'm naturally drawn to that.” Ryan adds "Sonny and I share simlar musical tastes however we write from opposite sides. He writes from a classical perspective and I write from a hard rock riff driven veiwpoint. Which gives us the unique sound we have." Each member contributes their personal styles and ideas, which makes Syndrome of Fire a powerful, unique band with hard hitting rhythms and lyrics that speak straight to the core of your existence.
