November 22nd 2014 - RELEASE OF "SECOND"

Three years after releasing their first album "SYNCRONIZED", SYNCROMIND PROJECT are back with "SECOND". This album continues what already emerged on the debut album: attention to detail, playing finesse and inspiring as well as driving structures – to name but a few characteristics of "SECOND".

On this Album, Enzo Ferrara and Vito Lis prove a clear evolution of their work, which started already in 2009. Each of the eight songs of "SECOND" lives from its own story told by means of a powerful sound and interesting structures.

"SECOND" opens the door to exciting soundscapes, waiting to reveal itself to the listener in the course of a trip through a variety of scenes and snapshots of life.

The result is a multifaceted work, based on a solid foundation of very
diverse and narrative songs that use their homogeneous sound to underpin their belonging to each other.

The production of "SECOND", for which Vito Lis is once more responsible, was realized only by the two musicians again. This time, only the mastering process was committed to the Abbey Road Studios in London.

After specifying the release date for the second album, we had sort of a paradigm shift on our music and whatever might be connected to it. Due to recent changes and trends in music industry and our continuous passion for music itself, we decided to go back to the very origin of what made us dive into this fantastic journey. We are making music regarding it as a gift and a way of expressing things where words are not sufficient anymore - We love and enjoy what we're doing.
Therefore, also this album will be made available for FREE.

However, should you feel the need of supporting us, besides listening to and spreading and sharing eight wonderful tracks, you can donate whatever amount you think the work is worth – but this is NOT mandatory…

So stay tuned for November 22nd in order not to miss the release of SECOND.



The finalization of our follow-up album "SECOND" is about to end, so its release is scheduled for November 22 this year.

As from this date, you will find the album containing eight brand new tracks at all the relevant download stores like iTunes, Amazon and even more digital music services. Be ready for the news to come.

April 18th 2013 - Press response to our album SYNCRONIZED  italian english


Cosa ci fanno un italiano e un polacco in Germania? No, non è l’inizio di unabarzelletta… perché questo è un progetto musicale, ed esiste realmente! Infatti, il progetto SYNCROMIND PROJECT prende forma dalle idee di Enzo Ferrara (l’italiano), chitarrista, bassista e compositore, e di Vito Lis (ilpolacco),batterista, tastierista, tecnico, produttore… sono ufficialmente operativi dal 2009, ma l’idea del progetto risale al 2006. “SYNCRONIZED” è il debutto discografico del duo, che dimostrano di avere le carte in regola per farsi apprezzare da un pubblico variegato alla ricerca di sonorità innovative e fuori dai soliti schemi, partendo da un’impostazione heavy-oriented; l’album è interamente strumentale, supportato da strutture ritmiche solide e multiforme e con le chitarre potenti ed eleganti allo stesso tempo. I SYNCROMIND PROJECT sono influenzati soprattutto da band e musicisti che spaziano dal progressive rock/metal e dal fusion; in particolare, la band cita Liquid Tension Experiment, Planet X, Joe Satriani, Tony Malcapine, Neil Peart… Confermo le influenze fusion nel loro mondo progressive rock/metal e anche se in alcune parti mi hanno ricordato i Liquid Tension Experiment, vi garantisco che la band ci offre un disco ben suonato; il duo è consapevole di suonare un genere elaborato e forse non per tutti, ma capace (con le otto tracce strumentali di “SYNCRONIZED”) di non annoiare. Amanti delle sonorità “progressive” fatevi sotto! Vi informo che potete trovare il disco in download (gratuito) sul sito www.syncromind-project.com, oppure contattare la band per avere un’edizione limitata di “Syncronized” (con pochi euro)… magnifico, no? Io aspetto un nuovo lavoro di questo interessante progetto.

What are an Italian and a Pole doing in Germany? No, this is not the beginning of a joke ... It is a musical project, and it really exists! In fact, SYNCROMIND PROJECT originating in the ideas of Enzo Ferrara (Italian), guitarist, bass player and composer, and Vito Lis (Polish), drummer, keyboardist, engineer, producer ... are officially active since 2009, but the idea of ​​the project itself dates back to the year 2006. "SYNCRONIZED" is the debut album of the duo, that proves that they have what it takes to be appreciated by a diverse audience looking for innovative sounds and concepts beyond the conventional schemes. Starting from a heavy-oriented approach, the album is entirely instrumental and contains solid and multifaceted rhythm structures, as well as powerful and at the same time elegantly played guitars. SYNCROMIND PROJECT are mainly influenced by bands and musicians from the progressive rock / metal and fusion genre, in particular, Liquid Tension Experiment, Planet X, Joe Satriani, Tony Malcapine, Neil Peart ... I do confirm the progressive fusion influences in their rock / metal world and even if in some parts they reminded me of the Liquid Tension Experiment, I guarantee you that the band offers us a well played album. The duo is aware of playing in an elaborate genre, which perhaps is not to everybody's taste, but they are capable (with the eight instrumental tracks of "SYNCRONIZED") of never sounding boring. Progressive music admirers, come closer! Note that you can download the album (for free) from the website www.syncromind-project.com or contact the band to obtain a limited edition of "Syncronized" (for just a few euro) ... magnificent, isn't it? I am waiting for the upcoming work of this exciting project.

german Was macht ein Italiener und ein Pole in Deutschland? Nein, es ist nicht der Anfang eines Witzes ... es geht hier um ein tatsächlich existentes musikalisches Projekt. Dieses Projekt ist das Produkt der Ideen von Enzo Ferrara (Italien), Gitarrist, Bassist und Komponist, und Vito Lis (Polen), Schlagzeuger, Keyboarder, Tontechniker, Produzent ... die mit SYNCROMIND PROJECT seit 2009 offiziell aktiv sind, die Idee zu diesem Projekt reicht jedoch bis in das Jahr 2006 zurück. "SYNCRONIZED" ist das Debütalbum des Duos und es beweist, dass die beiden alles haben, um von einem gemischten Publikum gewürdigt zu werden, das auf der Suche nach innovativen und unkonventionellen Sounds ist. Ausgehend von einer heavy-orientierten Gangart ist das Album komplett instrumental gehalten und wartet mit soliden, facettenreichen Rhythmusstrukturen auf, die mit einer kraftvollen und gleichermaßen eleganten Gitarrenarbeit gepaart sind. SYNCROMIND PROJECT sind hauptsächlich von Bands und Musikern aus dem Progressive Rock / Metal und Fusion Genre beeinflusst, die Band zitiert insbesondere Größen wie Liquid Tension Experiment, Planet X, Joe Satriani, Tony Malcapine, Neil Peart ... Ich bestätige der Formation gewisse progressive Fusion-Einflüsse in ihrer Rock-/Metal-Welt und, obwohl sie mich an manchen Stellen an Liquid Tension Experiment erinnern, garantiere ich, dass die Band uns hier eine gut eingespielte Scheibe präsentiert. Die beiden Musiker sind sich dessen bewusst, dass sie in einem sehr entwickelten Genre agieren, das vielleicht nicht jedermanns Geschmack trifft, doch ist die Band (mit den acht Instrumental-Tracks von „SYNCRONIZED“) keinesfalls langweilig. Liebhaber „progressiver“ Klänge, hört euch das an! Die CD findet man zum (kostenlosen) Download auf der Website www.syncromind-project.com oder per direkten Kontakt mit der Band als limitierte Auflage (für ein paar Euro). Ist das nicht großartig? Ich freue mich schon auf das nächste Werk dieses spannenden Projekts.

October 14th 2012 - Press response to our album SYNCRONIZED  italian english

Rock Hard Italy

Risultato della collaborazione tra il chitarrista e compositore italiano Enzo Ferrara ed il polistrumentista polacco Vito Lis, il progetto SYNCROMIND PROJECT è ufficialmente operativo dal 2009; SYNCRONIZED rappresenta il debutto discografico del duo, il quale dimostra di avere tutte le carte in regola per farsi apprezzare da un pubblico variegato alla ricerca di sonorità innovative e fuori dagli schemi consueti. Quanto proposto affonda infatti le proprie radici nella ricerca di soluzioni sonore tutt’altro che convenzionali, derivate da un’impostazione chiaramente heavy-oriented ma finalizzate ad assecondare l’estro artistico della coppia di musicisti. Completamente strumentale, SYNCRONIZED mette in luce partiture chitarristiche potenti ed eleganti al tempo stesso, ben supportate da una struttura ritmica solida e multiforme nel suo esplicarsi. Il risultato è un suono di grande impatto, in grado di combinare tecnica e fantasia stilistica nel contesto di un lavoro dal grande pathos emotivo. Un’opera prima che lascia intravedere grandi potenzialità.

As a result of collaboration between the Italian guitarist and composer Enzo Ferrara and the Polish multi instrumentalist Vito Lis, SYNCROMIND PROJECT are officially operational since 2009; SYNCRONIZED is the debut album of the duo which contains all the necessary requirements for being appreciated by a vast audience in search of innovative and unconventional sounds. The proposed work has its roots in the search for sound solutions which are anything but conventional, deriving from a clearly heavy oriented music but aiming to satisfy the artistic talent of the two musicians. SYNCRONIZED is an entirely instrumental album that highlights powerful and at the same time elegant guitar parts which are well supported by solid, diversiefied and very expressive rhythm structures. The result is a sound of great impact, able to combine technical and stylistic fantasy in the context of a work of great emotional pathos. A debut that reveals great potential.

german Als Ergebnis der Zusammenarbeit zwischen dem italienischen Gitarristen und Composer Enzo Ferrara und dem polnischen Multi-Instrumentalisten Vito Lis, sind SYNCROMIND PROJECT bereits seit 2009 offiziell aktiv; SYNCRONIZED, das Debütalbum des Duos, hat alles was man braucht um von einem Publikum geschätzt zu werden, das sich gerne von innovativen und unkonventionellen Klängen mitreißen lässt. Das uns eingereichte Material zeigt eine Suche nach eher unkonventionellen klanglichen Lösungen, die zwar klar im Heavy-Bereich angesiedelt sind, jedoch der künstlerischen Begabung der beiden Musiker entsprechend umgesetzt wurden. SYNCRONIZED ist ein gänzlich instrumental gehaltenes Album und fördert kraftvolle und gleichzeitig elegante Gitarrenparts zu Tage, die von einer soliden, vielfältigen und ausdrucksstarken Rhythmusarbeit unterstützt werden. Das Ergebnis ist ein Sound mit großer Wirkung, der in der Lage ist, die Spieltechnik und stilistische Phantasie der beiden Musiker im Rahmen eines Werkes voller emotionalem Pathos miteinander zu verbinden. Ein Debüt, das großes Potenzial offenbart.

Wenn sich erfahrene Musiker zusammen tun, dann kann man in der Regel damit rechnen, dass das Ergebnis Hand und Fuß hat. So auch bei Syncromind Project ... so erinnert ihre Musik immer wieder an eine nicht ganz so verkopfte, instrumentale Ausgabe von Dream Theater.

When experienced musicians get together, then, as a rule, you can expect the result to be with rhyme and reason. This also applies to Syncromind Project ... so their music always reminds of a less overly-intellectual instrumental edition of Dream Theater.

Quando si riuniscono dei musicisti esperti, di regola ci si può attendere un risultato con capo e coda. Ciò vale anche per Syncromind PROJECT... per cui la loro musica ricorda sempre ad una versione strumentale meno eccessivamente intellettuale dei Dream Theater.

Die Songs, und es sind trotz all der technischen Finessen durchaus solche, sind solide strukturiert und sauberst produziert ... starkes Instrumentalalbum, einige Musiker werden sich, Lemmingen gleich, gen Abgrund wenden, andere werden verzückt mit den Ohren wackeln.

The songs, and despite all technical finesse they really can be referred to as such, offer solid structures and are neatly produced ... fantastic instrumental album, some musicians will turn to the abyss like lemmings, others will wiggle their ears in delight.

I brani, e nonostante tutta la finezza tecnica davvero possono essere chiamati tali, offrono strutture solide e sono ben prodotti ... fantastico album strumentale, alcuni musicisti si butteranno nell'abisso come i lemming, gli altri faranno muovere le orecchie di gioia.

... plötzlich erzählt einer von einem Projekt aus Deutschland mit Namen "Syncromind Project".

Ein Projekt aus Deutschland von einem Italiener und einem Polen gehört in einem amerikanischen Radiosender …

Technisch angehauchter, vertrackter ProgMetal, ganz in der Tradition z.B. von Planet X, wird denn auch über weite Strecken auf "Syncronized" geboten. Fans vertrackter, hirn-anregender Instrumental-Musik, die keine Aversion gegen einen gewissen Härtegrad und gelegentliche ausgedehnte Frickeleinlagen haben, werden hier auf's Beste bedient ... Ein instrumentaler Höhepunkt, spät im Jahr ...

Tricky Prog Metal, with a technical touch in the tradition of e.g. Planet X. Fans of tricky, mind-stimulating instrumental music without any aversion against a certain degree of hardness and some occasional shredding are perfectly served here ... An instrumental highlight, late in the year ...

... Prog metal complicato, con un tocco tecnico nella tradizione ad esempio dei Planet X. Saranno perfettamente serviti coloro che amano la musica strumentale complicata e che sono senza alcuna avversione verso un certo grado di durezza e uno shredding sporadico ... Un Highlight strumentale, alla fine dell'anno ...

Her er generelt tale om et rigtigt god produceret progressivt album. Et album som er super at have til at køre på loop i baggrund mens du læser, laver lektier eller hvad du nu end laver, og hvis du er til progressivt metal, tror jeg det vil falde i din smag.

Here we're talking about a really well produced progressive album. An album which is super to listen to in a loop in the background while reading, doing homework or whatsoever, and if you are into progressive metal, I think this will suit your taste.

Qui stiamo parlando di un album di musica progressiva veramente ben prodotto. Un album perfetto da ascoltare in ripetizione e in sottofondo durante la lettura, facendo i compiti o seguendo qualsiasi altra attività, e se siete dei fan del metal progressivo, credo che questo album incontrerà il proprio gusto.
