Artist: Sylosis
Description:
Personnel: Josh Middleton (vocals, guitar); Alex Bailey (guitar, piano); Rob Callard (drums, percussion). Audio Mixer: Scott Atkins. The second album by U.K. thrash/death metal act Sylosis feels third-generation; they're deeply indebted to Trivium's synthesis of late-'80s Metallica with modern extreme metal. Also like Trivium, they can't self-edit, and they play for too long at a stretch -- this album offers 13 tracks spread out over 72 minutes, when eight or nine in 45 minutes would have showcased their abilities in a better light. Since their last record, they've lost their frontman and bandleader/guitarist Josh Middleton has taken over vocal duties; he's a capable roarer, but not exactly individualistic. The bandmembers are at their best when they're just playing -- the bursts of guitar shred are short enough to be exciting rather than wanky, and while drummer Rob Callard isn't an amazing talent, he adds a decent level of drama with his double bass eruptions, and whacks the snare drum like it owes him money. Ultimately, the biggest problem with this album is that it's too long. Had it ended with "Dystopia," a furious thrash track, it would have been great. The next five tracks could have been a stopgap EP between this and their next full-length. But at its current bloated size, Edge of the Earth grows wearying long before it's done. ~ Phil Freeman

  • Most Solid Sylosis Album

    Within the last half year, I have taken a strong liking to Sylosis and their musical style. In that time span, I have purchased all 3 full length albums from Sylosis (Conclusion of an Age - 2008 and Monolith - 2012), but still think that 'Edge of the Earth' stands up as their most enjoyable album to date. There are memorable and catchy riffs sprinkled throughout this album that have me reaching for this album more than the others. The thrashy drums that insert delicious fill after delicious fill entertain the ear and keep things interesting throughout. The album also flows extremely well from one song to the other, making a front-to-back listen all that more enjoyable. The musicianship is simply amazing and I am thoroughly excited to see them play their songs live. The vocalist changed from 'Conclusion of an Age' to this album, and I think his singing, screams and growls are easier to digest in large quantities. I can't exactly put my finger on why, but sometimes I grow tired of the vocals on this album (all Sylosis albums, really), hence the 1 star reduction (wish it was .5 instead). Sometimes it feels like the singer doesn't quite finish the emphatic bark/growl with authority throughout a complete word and the vocals don't match up to the intensity of the music as they trail off. Personal favorites on the album include 'Awakening' and the opener 'Procession'. As a recommendation, I would encourage anybody interested in Sylosis to give this album a shot. Give it a try and enjoy a refreshing album by a British metal group. Other bands, in my opinion, that resemble the musical style of a Sylosis would be Lamb of God and Machine Head.

  • Sylosis - Edge of the Earth

    This latest release from Sylosis was a great addition to the albums by this artist. I especially enjoyed the "Sands of Time" and "Kingdom of Solitude" tracks. For those who are familiar with Sylosis, enjoy 'screaming' metal guttural vocals, or pounding metal, "Edge of the Earth" is a great follow-up to "Conclusion of an Age". You can also find at least two other releases on *Tunes or other sources, but not physical CDs from O.co. In all, of the four releases I have of Sylosis, this one shows a progressive maturity in the instrumentation that make for a great listening experience.
