Infinisynth is a rock band with goth, progressive and industrial influences. Fronted by guitarist and vocalist, KarrArikh Tor, Infinisynth's sound has grown over the years. Using the classic goth sound they achieved on their debut CD as a starting point, Infinisynth has moved into an earlier vintage rock sound reminiscent of the progressive bands of the late '70s with German Industrial lashings. "The music is very low-key, laid back while the contents and structure are mellow and gloomy with a soothing appeal, as the fast paced guitar work weaves you in and out of ecstasy" (Klaus Dello-Stryto, The Glass Eye, July 1997 - in reference to Shadow and Shade).
The main electric project of artist KarrArikh Tor, Infinisynth began in 1992, in the aftermath of Future Dialogue's first line-up disbanding. For years Infinisynth was plagued by backing artist problems. In 1993, KarrArikh hooked up with Alex MacHein (on drums and rhythm/programming), releasing 'Subnormal Episodes Vol. 1' in 1993 on cassette. In 1994 the public access television series Ennui Entertainment Presents created a video montage to accompany this work and aired the video Infinisynth: Subnormal Episodes pt. 1 on 4 September, 1994. Then the band took a new approach to recording, trying to record all their new material live, instead of working in multi-track studios. Using MIDI programming and outboard sequencers, Infinisynth began heavy rehearsals into recording. The video Infinisynth: Subnormal Episodes pt. 2, featuring the new live sound, aired on 7 July, 1995. KarrArikh also had the unique opportunity to work with photographer Michael Flasch during this time, who requested KarrArikh to write Expressions to accompany his photo exhibit in February 1994.
Backup artists Kat (keyboards, vocals) and Kasey Tyr (bass) were brought into the studio to work on the soundtrack for the Ennui Entertainment Presents video Germania Saga, a 95 minute Norse Epic written by KarrArikh and Alex that premiered 1 December, 1995. During the recording sessions for Germania Saga, additional songs were captured and used in the video Infinisynth: Great Mother, air date 3 November, 1995. The collaboration with Kat and Kasey continued onto Shadow and Shade in 1996 until Kasey left the band. Then Spoon Records producer, Patrick Bosch (who had been replaced as Infinisynth's producer after the disasterous Chaotic Access demo released during this period), was brought in to help finish the bass on Shadow and Shade. Kat and Patrick left Infinisynth in 1996, forming Ophelia's Sweet Demise (a local band performing in Milwaukee, WI).
With a move in 1996 and a new home base, KarrArikh and Alex continued to refine their sound, and have received continued airplay in local clubs, and on local and international radio. In March 1998, Infinisynth performed live on the Descent show on RadioK 770 AM, Minneapolis, MN, USA (which was also simulcast on the internet).
Armed with new equipment after the May 1998 Dark World Studio burglary, Infinisynth once again went into the studio, this time with new bass player Kain leFayne for the Dark World compilation, Artist's Row Vol. 1 . In 1999, Infinisynth began recording for What Remains in the Machine... , finishing three new songs before the end of the year. These new songs along with three tracks from the Germania Saga and Shadow and Shade sessions were released as Machine Parts, featuring the last live recordings of the last millennium.
Then in 2000, Infinisynth was persuaded to use multi-track recordings on ADAT, the first time since Subnormal Episodes pt.1 . Producer Kristi Ameringer pushed the band in this direction. "Logistically, we were having scheduling problems. No one could get together at the same time on a regular basis. Artistically, I wanted an opportunity to use the multi-track capabilities of ADAT to capture KarrArikh's voice and guitar. The boys gave me some fantastic material to work with. I think What Remains in the Machine... is one of their best."
2006 saw the release of default and reload, Infinisynth compilations made available digitally on iTunes. Shadow and Shade was re-released in 2010 with bonus tracks. What Remains in the MACHINE... was re-released in 2012, with two new tracks added as bonus. Presently, Infinisynth is KarrArikh Tor (Vox, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards, Sequencing) and Alex MacHein (drum programming).
Infinisynth has begun recording a new release, due out in 2013.
