After years of performing all across Israel on their own ticket and alongside international acts, keeping Jerusalem’s metal scene alive and releasing albums, members from Jerusalem’s godfather of thrash, Showrchtsechaye, and from DeuSphera, decided to come together to form Sintax in late 2013.
Considered one of the best live metal acts in Israel, Sintax have also toured Europe and established a solid fan base there as well. Reviews describe them as heavy metal thunder, a strong punch of groove and unique raw energy, a vicious blow to the face, messy and terrifying and brutal, as the lead singer's hoarse intensity leads the listeners through anarchy, politics, religion, philosophy, war, sex, and more.
The band was featured on the Israeli Headbangers Ball, and has released two albums. The first, Sway for a Better Day, in 2015, and the recent, Nano 3000, brought out by Yoav Gruper (guitar), Slava Kishka (bass), and Nir Baruch (drums), and founding members, Roi Illouz (guitar) and Yehi Zaken (vocals).
