Danceable beats, catchy melodies, and aggressive rock & roll styling make for a consistent and entertaining debut.Cynergy 67 has stood as an example of the power of perseverance in an underground music scene so desperate for agitation and intrigue. Releasing the New Machine EP with then-fledgling label Radio.Active.Music, producing a live DVD entirely on their own, acquiring more than a few endorsement deals with companies like SnapJack cables and Radioactive energy drink, and performing onstage with a plethora of likeminded bands, from mainstream names like Orgy, Godhead, and Powerman 5000 to lower tier acts like Celldweller and Deadstar Assembly, the Wisconsin based band is proof that there is still hope to achieve some measurable success in the dark electronic and industrial scene today when so many up-and-coming artists are so easily crushed under the oppressive boots of ill circumstance. Indeed, even Cynergy 67 has found itself stomped now and again, but Project: Assimilation is only the band's latest statement of defiance and dedication to continue creating a distinctive mix of danceable and dark electro beats and sequences with gyrating guitar-driven rock and appealing melodies. From the first reverberating lines of "The Touch," we are presented with a sound as aggressive as it is passionate, with EVO-1's guttural guitars juxtaposed with synths that will have the listener raving on the dance floor as VX-5's melancholy vocals reminiscent of the best in melancholy synthpop keep the song from falling into a pit of directionless rage. The rest of the album follows suit from the lusty and cybersexual "Electrowhore" to the creepily atmospheric and almost mournful "Someday," every song presents Cynergy 67's sound as an industrialized form of poppy danceable rock. With the presence of a cover of Information Society's "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)," we are not only given an edgy yet faithful cover of one of the seminal dance hits of the late '80s, but also a glimpse into Cynergy 67's influences, which can very easily be detected throughout the album, but especially so in a song like "Just Tell Me" with its intense chorus vocals. Adding to Project: Assimilation's power is the inclusion of renowned rock and metal producer Ulrich Wild, whose experience with such bands as Deftones, Pantera, Static-X, and White Zombie was undoubtedly an asset in the music achieving the correct balance of the synthetic and organic elements, while Chris Cozort's mastering job adds that extra sheen to help Cynergy 67's already well developed style. If there is one complaint about Project: Assimilation, it would be the consistency of tonality and tempo throughout, and each track possesses a certain similar buildup of heavily layered sonic intensity. Not that every song sounds the same, but there is not much variety at work between tracks, which makes for an entertaining listen that to some might get boring sooner rather than later. However, if Cynergy 67 can maintain such a productive and energetic pace equal to what they've demonstrated thus far and with Project: Assimilation, the band stands to become a legendary name in the underground electronic/industrial scene before very long. - ReGen Magazine


"From blacklit shows with fog and strobes to UV reactive outfits with battery powered lights down the sides, Cynergy's futuristic sound and style compel their fans and astonish the Midwest." - Andrew Frey- Maximum Ink Magazine

Cynergy67 is a foursome who tear it up!! Their CD, New Machine, is ready for the big time. It’s in the Techno Metal category and lives up to that without fault. Their unique fusion of danceable techno beats and heavy grinding guitar and bass riffs is hypnotizing. There is a lot of talent in this band. The techno side of the music does not detract from that at all. The combination of raw music with the computerized elements is perfect.



I enjoyed the entire CD although, I always find my favorites. My personal picks are Make It Breathe and Feel This. The lyrics are great and the music is written and recorded beautifully. The vocals on this CD are pristine, with rippling melodies and just the right amount of rasping rage. New Machine has great stamina, is powerful and tireless.



On the CD cover there is a very poignant quote from vx-5, vox and keys from Cynergy67, “embrace technology, for it is inevitable.” New Machine will make it easy for people to embrace the technology in life. The music grabs you and makes it impossible to take yourself away. This is truly a milestone in the evolution of our local music scene.

Bio

Gas masks, black lights, cables and wires: all the requisites for a cybernetic visual presentation for an up and coming industrial rock band. So what makes Cynergy 67's approach so different? You'd have to experience it for the answer.

The Wisconsin duo of VX-5 and Evo-1 started Cynergy 67 with the intention of providing audiences entry into a truly futuristic world, hearkening back to the original pioneering spirit of industrial rock. Combining the organic with the synthetic, the band's sound is a mélange of aggressive rock energy, complete with live guitars and drums, yet driven by the programmed mechanical fury of synthesizers, drawing fans from both the dance clubs and the mosh pits.

They've performed alongside such groups as Celldweller, Powerman 5000, Orgy, Godhead, Deadstar Assembly, and Society 1.

As of February 2010 we are now managed by Damon Moreno of the Inner Light Agency
