How’s this for a compliment:
“Little known secret; Metallica‘s …And Justice for All and Death‘s Symbolic record had a baby. It was tossed into a junkyard and forgotten about. It ate metal and drank gasoline until it broke free and began to kill. Sylosis defines modern speed metal.”
Cool, huh? It comes from the lips of Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler, and if his assessment of Sylosis won’t make you go and check their music out, nothing will.
The UK-based quartet’s latest album is appropriately titled Monolith and features a dazzling blend of techy thrash, anthemic choruses and stop and go rhythmic shifts.
Currently out on U.S. tour along with In Flames, HELLYEAH, the aforementioned Lamb of God, Sylosis has partnered up with Noisecreep to bring you the premiere of their new “Fear the World” video.
