2.0 poorKILL | September 1st 12

thrash livez

29 Bumps | Bump

4.5 superbNonApplicable | October 2nd 12

KILL you're stupid.

19 Bumps | Bump

4.0 excellentChrisWyatt | October 3rd 12

Better than Edge of the Earth. Mint album, fuck you Kill

7 Bumps | Bump

5.0 classicNecrogenicShrimp | October 2nd 12

Wonderfully climactic melodeath/thrash that suggests a brooding atmosphere, making for a unique sound that at the same time is reminiscent of everything great about metal - could very well be AOTY

7 Bumps | Bump

4.0 excellentInfinityPlusOne | October 11th 12

Don't let the artificially low average rating fool you, this is a great album. KILL, his
multiple accounts, and idiot followers have clearly sabotaged the system.

If that's how he chooses to spend his sad existence, I say let him.


6 Bumps | Bump

0.0 James Grant | October 9th 12

This rules, all this 'faux thrash' shit is just ridiculous.

6 Bumps | Bump

0.0 Hawks | October 2nd 12

You people are so stupid. This band is fucking awful.

6 Bumps | Bump

2.0 poorKJ | October 7th 12

This band isn't even capable of writing a song with passion and feeling. Basically they suck huge black cock and then spit the load

5 Bumps | Bump

0.0 Scott Krasman | October 7th 12

lolololol kill 1d this three times

5 Bumps | Bump

1.0 awfulqueefman | October 7th 12

Thrash is dead, let it rust in peace.

4 Bumps | Bump

4.5 superbDarkvoid67 | October 6th 12

Big step up from EOTE. The riffs this time are a lot more thought out and a lot of the songs (Behind the Sun, The River) are focused upon building and developing their initial sound which I really enjoy. As for the sound off's above me, rate your music is the place of the elitists and jerk-offs, I have never seen so many immature comments over a band in my life

4 Bumps | Bump

4.0 excellentbaldymort | October 2nd 12

What's with the hate these guys get on here!?! Awesome album btw.

4 Bumps | Bump

5.0 classicMalConstant | October 2nd 12

Some of the best riffs I've heard in a long time and the songwriting doesn't get much better than this. A modern metal masterpiece.

4 Bumps | Bump

5.0 classicPolaris4 | August 28th 12

Edge Of The Earth sounded completely outer-worldly and perfect so instead of attempting to outdo it, Monolith will stand right next to it with a darker more gloomy vibe

4 Bumps | Bump

3.5 greatTheNotrap | October 9th 12

Not a groundbreaking or innovative release but "Monolith" is still a pretty solid piece of modern thrash.

3 Bumps | Bump

0.0 zaruyache | October 6th 12

With so many "classic" thrash bands coming back to release quality material these days, who really cares about Sylosis?

3 Bumps | Bump

2.5 averageYUJOS | October 17th 12

Sylosis went with Monolith for a more prog ala Opeth direction to accompany their usual thrash sound , however I believe that, if they will further explore that prog/atmospheric elements while cutting also some of their bay area influences, then they can do wonders in their future releases. Also, Josh Middleton should focus more to his guitar playing and leave the signing to someone else.

1 Bumps | Bump

0.0 Camstr | October 10th 12

Wow...that's what first comes to mind after just one listen of this album. I was a little worried when I read that Sylosis were going for an old-school, live feel on this follow-up to the outstanding "Edge of the Earth", but this blew me away! Every song stands on its own as a masterpiece of creativity, but together they form Sylosis' best album and what is easily one of the best albums of 2012.

0.0 plugged my butthole | October 7th 12

hahaha hawks' soundoff reminded me of that sputnik chronnicles episode

1 Bumps | Bump

0.0 rob g | October 6th 12

shit band

1 Bumps | Bump

3.5 greatLani Parker | October 6th 12

There are some really pretty moments on here that flourish into something beautiful (the opener and hidden track), but for the most part the "let's start out with thrashy heavy and incorporate some keyboards later on during the bridge" shtick that they make literally every track conform to gets old quick.

1 Bumps | Bump

3.5 greatUnitK2K | October 3rd 12

For whatever reason the stream quality for me sucks. But... I've heard the two songs that were streaming a month ago and those are sick! Should be awesome.

1 Bumps | Bump

2.0 poorEpicenter | May 28th 13

So. Fucking. Boring.

Bump

0.0 Nate | December 4th 12

Not that good of a thrashing album. Coulda used more thrash and less chode.

Bump

0.0 Show me yo bootyhole | October 17th 12

Dont need to listen to album, automatic 5 since Kill hates this

Bump

3.5 greatrisingson05 | October 8th 12

What Dwells Within is a ridiculously epic song. Definitely the stand out track for me. I think this album is the perfect mix of thrash and melody.

Bump
