SYLOSIS
EDGE OF THE EARTH
NUCLEAR BLAST

UK modern metal troupe Sylosis return with a dramatic shift in their lineup, as they’ve ditched their singer and now operate as a quartet with the guitarist assuming the vocal duties as well as the tactful six-string shredding. Despite the turmoil, this squad delivers a mauling multi-faceted metal assault that fuses Bay Area thrash and Euro melodeath with an endless supply of the stellar musicianship present-day metal demands on EDGE OF THE EARTH. Pounding out with explosive movements of double barrel aggression without sacrificing technical prowess (“Empyreal”), Sylosis administers a fine amalgamation of growling heaviness, blistering fretwork, and forward thinking compositions to strike a medium between Trivium, Arsis, and Scar Symmetry (“Kingdom of Solitude”), making this 14-track tour de force something worth checking out for those who enjoy today’s metal sound.
