With a background ranging from thrash metal to experimental and classical music, Second Brain's founding members Agravain (vocals, guitars, programming) and Lala Gabarth (backing vocals, synths) recorded their first 4-track demo Into the Circle in 2010. Following this highly experimental release, which featured thrash metal riffs along with hints of industrial music, the duo went on a brief hiatus between 2011 and 2012. In 2013 Agravain and Gabarth began work on their first full-length album. Titled Synthesis and self-released in May 2014, it marks a step forward in terms of songwriting with shorter, more aggressive songs and the electronic element now fully integrated into the band's music. The album has received positive feedback both in Italy and abroad. Second Brain are completed by bassist Emanuele Pasquali, guitarist Giulio Ciotoli and drummer Mishu.
