UK based Modern Thrash heroes Sylosis just completed the work on their new record. The upcoming album is called “Monolith” and was recorded with Romesh Dodangoda in Wales at Monnow Valley Studio.
Vocalist and guitar player Josh Middleton commented: “Some people might not have expected us to come out with a new album so quickly but we already had a few songs written for this album by the summer of 2010. We’ve spent as much time writing this album as any of the others and I think we’re all the most proud we’ve ever been. Monolith is the best representation of us as a band in terms of our diverse influences and stylistically it’s what we’ve always been aiming for. A mixture of thrash, big doomy riffs and dark atmospherics and ambience.”
