Synthesis was born after an idea by a Roberto Uccellini in his early teen years. In 1985, after releasing “The Price Of Glory”, the band participates to the historical heavy metal compilation “Metallo Italia”, with their “The Light”. The album, produced by Al Festa, was issued under Reflex Records.
In the following years, the band enjoys a relative success, also thanks to the video of “The Light”, repeatedly broadcast by the Italian RAI. “The Price Of Glory” is well reviewed on magazines and fanzines of that time and, thanks to growing fame, the band starts playing all over Italy, to the pleasure of fans and band members.
aIn 1991, after some health issues that affect founding member Roberto, the band comes back as determined as ever. “Live at Pan Pot” is issued the following year, also well reviewed, and soon after another demo pops out: “Synthetic Sin” draws more and more proposals for live gigs, that would climax in a red-hot exhibition at the temple of rock in Rome, the mythical “Palladium”. “Synthetic Sin” is praised as “Top Demo” on the Italian metal press. The band then hits and wins again “Chianciano Rock”, this time with the track “Liar”, which is also issued on the compilation “Who Plays Rock II” in March, 1993. In that very year, Synthesis is also invited to join the national contest “La Stalattite d’Oro” (The Golden Stalactite), where they bring “Liar” as well, and win again.
The decade goes on with a Live recording in ’95, that confirms the band as a thunderous concert machine.
