Since their debut album, Tim Kniep and Philipp Münch have consistently impressed world wide audiences both on stage and with a wide number of high-octane releases combining distinctive vocal treatments, experimental electronics and rhythmic industrial with a touch of the unexpected - executing their own blend of both pounding beats and complexity. Synapscape's layers of sound reveal themselves in a number of different ways on repeated listens, often with unforeseen results and this mixture of the basic and the detailed has been a constant characteristic on this project's work from day one. On previous albums they mixed in complex idm flavors and technoid beat structures in order to create new points of interest. Following albums continue this fusion of harshness and subtlety in a most brilliant way. 

Along with 20th anniversary Tim Kniep and Philipp Münch present their tenth full length album "Rhythm Age". As the album title suggests, the release is focused on most different beat variations, ranging from straight and distorted to technoid, complex and even broken. These manifold rhythmic textures build a solid foundation for both atmospheric and powerful electronic landscapes, solid bass lines, nuanced lead synths, and Tim Kniep's distinctive processed voice. stylistically, Synapscape ventured from the often used formulaic norm of the industrial genre from the very beginning into different territories - "Rhythm Age" provides an even more detailed insight into this project's musically varied sound-design. The thirteen tracks are combination of rhythmic industrial, idm, electroclash and experimental tunes with the hard-to-define, special character of Synapscape's work approach. This album is merging modern versus ancient, as digital and analogue as music can get.
