Every generation of Metal bands has its pioneers – groups that redefine the genre musically and take it to a new level. Sylosis are one of them. It’s not for nothing that the quartet from Reading, England, have been considered as U.K.’s greatest metal export. Now the boys return with their second metallic gem Edge of the Earth.
Since the release of their debut album, Conclusion of an Age, in late 2008, Sylosis have acquired a respectable global fanbase and were able to prove their live skills playing with bands such as Dragonforce, As I Lay Dying, Fear Factory and The Black Dahlia Murder as well as on big festival stages of Download, Sonisphere and Graspop. After a slight lineup alteration of lead guitarist Josh Middleton henceforth taking the frontman role as well, Sylosis present their most intense, vigorous and ambitious material to date. Edge of the Earth is overflowing with devastating riffs, thrilling melodies, soulful solos, progressive twists and turns and a ubiquitous dark atmosphere.
Metal Giants Sylosis are taking some time out from their Autumn tour to host a master class at The Co–operative presents British Music Experience. Josh Middleton and Alex Bailey will be talking Sylosis fans through their musical motivations and what makes for a killer guitar sound. The Sylosis Metal Master Class will take place from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 8.
