How We Found Synderes and Who They Are

We first met the members of Synderes last year at MetroCon. Then, last month, they toured the Secret Underground Lab and filmed the latest AdvenureCouch episode. The members of Synderes, led by lead singer Synder first came together in 2012. They began playing not far from the Secret Underground Lab, and quickly got the attention of producers and music lovers around the world. After winning iHeart Radio’s Rising Star contest, they went right back into the studio to produce even more amazing music!

A couple days after they toured the Lab, Artix sent me the links to their Enemy Inside and Expendable videos, and before the first one was done, I was singing along. They reminded me immediately of Evanescence (which is not surprising; it's one of Amanda's favorite bands).

When I met Amanda, their lead singer, I was incredibly impressed by her passion, enthusiasm, and creativity. I got a chance to sit down with her after their tour of the Lab, and she talked about her music, what inspires her, and how much she loves writing. (Then we geeked out over fantasy novels in general, because who doesn't love a good epic adventure?!)

The surprising thing is how young she is, especially considering how POWERFUL her voice is. Think you can guess? Good luck, because I tried and was WAY off! Check out their appearance on the latest episode of AdventureCouch, where Artix interviews Amanda and Anthony.

Amanda is really genuine and dedicated to her craft; it was easy to see from the stories I've heard that the rest of the band mirrors that dedication and passion. 

  • Anthony on Lead Guitar
  • Pierson on Bass
  • Alec on Drums
  • They are all SO hyped to share their creations with you (including a sneak peek of their next EP) and that's why WE are so excited about bringing them onstage in Yulgar's Inn!

    Update: the updated Synderes Cape of Shadows and Blade of Shadows files were eaten in a massive computer failure. I am rebuilding the fies tonight, and will release them ASAP.

    AdventureCouch Episode #5: Synderes

    Artix Interviews Amanda and Anthony from Synderes!

    In our newest episode of AdventureCouch, Artix interviews Amanda and Anthony, the lead singer and guitarist from alternative rock band Synderes! Tomorrow night, their band will appear onstage at Yulgar's Inn, and AQWorlds heroes will get a sneak peek of their newest EP!*

    free online rpg adventurecouch interview synderes

    Synderes is the first real-live band to become game characters and play in Yulgar's Inn! Not only that, but they won iHeart Radio's Rising Star contest and have already filmed two extremely impressive music videos for their singles.

    At the posting of this video Synderes is in the studio recording. We especially like that Amanda, lead singer and her brother are surprisingly long time players of AE video games. In addition to being the face of the band, Amanda has always played legit, and.. is it just me, or does she look A LOT like Gravelyn on that cover pic of this video?

    Did someone say, "Living Dungeon Design?"

    Sneak-peek at this summer’s blockbuster release

    I am writing two (maybe three) releases for AdventureQuest Worlds this summer. Cysero and Beleen are coming back to write special releases too! For this one, Titan Hollow, I wrote a short story about three Titans battle for the tear of a Fairy that turned into an eternal curse. Like the most popular dungeons from Doomwood, this will be a story-crawl adventure with bonus hidden secrets for hard core gamers.

    dage the evil sketch sneak peek
    Designed by Dage the Evil

    Originally, I wanted to make it a Grimskull dungeon, but for some reason, players hate dying horrific terrible animated deaths over and over again. <_< Not sure why. >_> Really. So instead of animating comical death cutscenes, we will be focusing on heroic acts of how to cleverly get from point A to point B which will provide scores of awesome screenshot worthy moments.

    Beware of living dungeons though.... sometimes... they move. O_O
