British progressive thrash band Sylosis have released the artwork for their forthcoming album, Monolith,
accompanied by a brief audio sample from the album.
The album artwork may be seen up-close here in a rather curt Youtube video:
Monolith is set to be released September 7th, 2012.
not sure if news worthy but I'm excited for this
Way too many metal bands releasing albums called Monolith these days.
This is gonna suck hard. Glad I'm not a faux thrasher
faux thrashers unite
all 202 of us who gave the last album a 3.5 or better
inb4 Kill Jizz's over his favorite band
This new album will probably be boring like the last 2
Digging: Kanye West - Yeezus
if they didnt have those two cunts in the artwork it would be pretty cool. and if they didnt have that fag sitting there on edge of the earth it would be pretty dece.
Can't waait. One of the best modern bands on the ENTIRE FUCKING PLANET right now.

Art nouveau based cover. Nice.
It's very similar to the cover of a Mastodon album.
Digging: Childish Gambino - Because The Internet
bill hicks would not agree
haha Trap you think everything is good.....I don't think I've ever seen you pessimistic about anything.
Going to be good. I hope.
Both albums were very good, I prefer the first one because it has a better vocal work.
This came as such an awesome surprise. I had no idea that they'd even started recording another album...and so soon after their (kick ass) release last year. =)
KILL is happy for this one!
Anyone who calls this band fake is an idiot.
Digging: Lamb of God - As the Palaces Burn
Album art is quite good.
The drums sound massive in the clip.
Digging: Touche Amore - Is Survived By
Why do people label this band "Modern Thrash" it makes no sense both albums are Mid-Tempo Metalcore through and through.
I enjoyed some of the material off of Edge of the Earth but the vocals were pretty flat. His higher-pitched scream has a cool sound to it but the constipated grunts need to go.
when you say metalcore you mean not metalcore right?
The production and pacing is almost identical to All That Remains, Unearth and Trivium. Are those bands Thrash also?
The album art struck me as a mix between TBDM's Ritual (stylistically) imposed upon Mastodon's Crack the Skye design
With some John Baizley in there too
The production and pacing is almost identical to All That Remains, Unearth and Trivium. Are those
bands Thrash also?
Because production and pacing = genre
sounds like metalcore.
Also it sucks.
Cool art I guess. As for the music, I'm expecting more of the same.

Band sucks, but cool artwork I guess.
I don't think Sylosis need to change. They pretty much have their own brand of thrash.
"Because production and pacing = genre
Because the production and pacing was the total extent of my point... but since you need me to break this down for you they have all the elements of your average Metalcore band.
Lame lyrics about things that don't matter, annoyingly forced low-grunts/Screams, Thick overly-clean production, mid to moderately fast pacing, non-existent bass and boring snares. Great band by the way.
You incredibly dumb if you think Sylosis is a metalcore band.
DevilDriver have every aspect you mentioned(except "boring snares"). Tell me, are they metalcore?
none of the things you listed define metalcore good job
They aren't the Traditional style of Metalcore that actually has some traces of Hardcore in it, but if you're going to label them something that isn't Thrash what is it? Death Metal? C'mon.
This is a rather pointless discussion to have but hardly anything about this band is Thrash.
"They aren't the Traditional style of Metalcore that actually has some traces of Hardcore in it"
Really? You do realise that Metalcore means Metal and Hardcore. If it has no Hardcore , then it loses the suffix '-core'. If you don't call it Thrash, you call it Progressive Metal, because from what I hear they're a Progressive/Thrash Metal band.
Sure, but all of these newer bands like All That Remains who don't fall under the category of Melodic Death Metal are usually lumped into the "Metalcore" genre since there's no other place to put them. This band isn't very Progressive either but whatever.
I don't even know why I'm continuing this conversation being in a certain genre or not is pretty irrelevant, sounding good in general is all that really matters. I'll just never in a million years understand how Sylosis is "Thrashy."
faux thrash yea they are gay suxk fuck
they're just a faux metal band doesn't make them metalcore
I spy Baizley
yeah there is nothing hardcore about this band lol
Digging: Wolfheart - Winterborn
Then label them grunge, they sound good anyways lol.
And yeah calling them gay faux shit because they aren't a replica of 80's Kreator is pathetic. I'd be pissed if I heard the same bands over and over.
I know, I don't understand people who do that....sylosis is good!
I call them faux metal to ease communication with the lesser developed minds of the trve metallers, despite the fact that I love this band
Aww Kj, you gave them a mean rating
I'll just never in a million years understand how Sylosis is Thrashy.
The riffs sir. The riffs.
yea the generic tremz
The riffs are only fast on occasion they usually slow it way down after the intro. I mean you can have a slower song or two on a Thrash album but when you're only starting every song off with a fast tempo instead of keeping it aggressive throughout that's when you start to sound more along the lines of these new Mainstream Metalcore bands or Melodeath.
Band is eh
Digging: Paavo - Paavo
bathory are better agreed
you clearly don't listen to the band Cracke
Sylosis incorporates different styles and trash is one of the main styles.
"you clearly don't listen to the band Cracke"
lol what how can you deny that just about every song on Edge of the Earth slows down big time towards the middle section. Conclusion of an Age is a little faster but still not Thrash.
who gives a fuck, when i listen to it thrash is what comes to mind more than anything so im going to call it thrash.
Cracke this is very simple yet you insist on making this extremely complicated. There is little to no
hardcore in Sylosis' music. Like a user stated before, Metalcore = Metal + Hardcore.
Thrash can be mid tempo and have breaks; I don't get your point. In fact these constant changes are
the progressive element in their sound.
LoL @ HitlerIsTheBest
That is such a offensive but awesome user name.
Sylosis is a metal band.
"Sylosis incorporates different styles and trash is one of the main styles. "
You know you done fucked up, right? TRASH is definitely of the main styles they incorporate, bwahaha.
yea people seem to have a hard time typing thrash fuckin tards i mean look at dethtrasher what a dick what a fuckin diltch
band is ok sometimes but most of the time they suck
dethtrasher was a fucking idiot and all of his reviews need to be deleted, they suck.
