SYNNOVE was formed in 2002 by guitarist/vocalist Brad (ex-VIRGIN BLACK), along with bassist/vocalist Stephanie. SYNNOVE began performing live with a new drummer, Steve, in 2005, and soon guitarist Connor completed the line-up. In late 2007, SYNNOVE went into the studio to record their first full-length album for Soundmass, a 50 minute epic titled "The Whore and the Bride". This album moves away from the gothic influences of their 2004 EP to a more aggressive twin-guitar black metal sound, with plenty of melodic doses of doom and death along the way. "The Whore and the Bride" is a musical dialogue between brutality and beauty, dissonance and harmony, groove and chaos.
