We had the pleasure to see SynlakrosS playing in Portugal by the end of 2019, at Assembleia do Metal (photos here, report here). It was the second time that this Spanish Melodic Death band played in Portugal and it was a thrilling show. Patricia Pons, the talented and beautiful vocalist with an amazing hair color kindly satisfied our curiosity.

Hi Patricia! Thanks a lot for coming to Assembleia do Metal, for all sympathy and excellent show.
Obrigado! It was a pleasure.

How did you get into Metal? At what age and what were your first favorite bands?
When i was a teenager I heard some mainstream bands but not to much. I started to listen more Metal when was able to me to start to find and discover bands when I was nineteen, when I started to have internet and friends who listened that kind of music.
I was a big fan of Korn, Guano Apes and Marilyn Manson, among others.

You're with SynlakrosS practically since the beginning. How has been this career so far?
Sometimes tough and difficult because we are an unsigned band, we don't have the support that big labels can bring to their bands. And when you start a band you don't know what do you have to do, you just only play, you don't know how to promote yourself, organize shows, etc.
I learned so much in the last ten years and I'm still learning.
But I love my band and the music that we do.
Most of the best experiences and happy moments of my life are related to SynlakrosS.

Besides SynlakrosS you're a quite talented graphics artist, also designed all albums artworks. Do you want to comment and share some links with your works?

A brand image of SynlakrosS are your stylist hair colors. When did you start to dye your hair with such unusual colors? With the band or before that?
I think I started with the color green 3 years ago. Before that, I dyed my hair purple during two years I guess… I started to dye my hair when I was a teenager.

How was your show at Assembleia do Metal, Portugal, on the 28th December?
It was great! Really nice people in the crowd. There was fans from others cities that come to the show only to see us. I feel thankful.

You and the band were so nice, never denied photos with the fans (me included, ha ha) neither signing stuff. The relation with your fans is of the most importance to the band, right?
Yes, you guys are part of the band. Without you there's nothing.

Did you have free time to some sightseeing?
No! What a pity! Every centimeter of Portugal is beautiful.

This was SynlakrosS second show in Portugal. The first one was in Portalegre in October 2018. Any memories from that show?
That one was insane! More than 200 people came to that gig and the treated us like stars. Was amazing! People was really kind and sweet with us. What a lovely night!

What will be your dream tour? For what bands would you like to open?
A lot bands, like Cradle Of Filth, In Flames, Dir En Gray...

Have you started to compose the next album? Any plans for the release date?
Yes we are working on it. Stay tuned for more details.
