Does anyone like Sylosis? British metal band, they really remind me of Iron Maiden but a lot heavier.

Sylosis is awesome...I don't know about them reminding me of iron maiden...but they do have a very good sound throughout their music...but then again I don't listen to iron maiden all that much...

I got my hands on 'Conclusion of an Age' a while back and really enjoyed it, can't say they remind me of Maiden though

It's the EP which reminds me of Maiden, one song on shuffle came on and I thought it was Maiden.

Oath of Silence is my favorite song by Sylosis.

It's on the way soon, I remember the guitarist saying it's like Death and Tool.

One of my favourite bands, I've listened to Conclusions consistently since it was released, I think it's a great new progression of Thrash.

It's like metalcore without the breakdowns. I'd say it's more of a mix between thrash and melodeath or something.

Generic but good. Also, I'm sure there's a thread on this already.

Yeah there's DEFINITELY a Sylosis thread already.

I had them crash at my flat after they supported Dragonforce in Dundee cos they had nowhere to stay. They were all really nice guys, especially Bailey who plays rhythm guitar.

Conclusion of An Age was awesome, but I got the BIGGEST Trivium vibe from the band.

EDIT: ^ Lucky.

Absolutely love 'em, "Conclusions" is a great album.
Saw them in the tent at Download last year, got the whole crowd in one giant circle pit around the concrete pillars.

I can relate to that, definitely. But I think they're a far more interesting band than Trivium, and whilst being really melodic they don't descend into cheese in the way Trivium always do with their choruses. Sylosis choruses are far more powerful.

I like them much more than Trivium. Trivium always seemed too... cliche', if that makes sense. Like, they're good, the guitarists are extremely skilled, but they don't put that skill to any amazing use. It all just sounds generic.

EDIT: By generic, I mean 'post-scream' Trivium.

Yep. Although I would interject that this really only applies to Shogun. I still find Ascendancy extremely powerful, every single song.

FFFFFFUUUUUUUUU-

Damn, damn, damn. Does this mean the new album will be pushed back? They say they're close to releasing it, but it sounds like they may re-record. Ugh.

i really like sylosis, conclusion of an age was totally awesome... the only bad thing about it is that its all in standard e, and i cant play it (got a floyd ****ing rose, dropped d) and i have no patience to transcribe all
they have very good riffs, and all the members are masters of their instruments!!

and i like them more than trivium too

edit: encyclopedia metallum says they are melodeath/thrash, are they both or what?

I was wondering if someone could please Sylosis - Turbulence, it would be greatly appreciated as i love this song so much, and would love to be able to play it on guitar with a provided tab.

Thanks,

Thanks for posting that.

Phwoar. This is great, I'm pretty fed up of this genre of Metal, but I think Sylosis pull it off in a way which really entertains me. Not hugely original, just really well done.

FREDIT:

Josh has a good voice, too. If he can do all this live....

They are absolutely immense, my favourite band by far.
Anyone else going to see them on the Razor tour this month? I'm off to the Manchester show
#28
I can't get over the fact that this band can be as talented, heavy, and overall kickass and only play in standard tuning. They truly are better than the vast majority of todays metal acts.

This song kicks some serious ass. Listen to those riffs!


Thanks for posting. Very good; they're growing as a band so well. I've loved the two songs from the new album they've released so far.

Josh can do this all live, I've seen it.

Shame there isnt any cleans like Jamie did. But i was worried I wouldn't enjoy this new stuff without him, but I've been pleasently surprised

I've actually only listened to one song by these guys..
I think it was Teras or something..
Any recommendations for other songs?

The whole Conclusions of an Age album is worth listening to, really. Try the first song, After Lifeless Years, see what you think.

^ Conclusion of an Age is a great album. The supreme oppressor is pretty good too, can't go wrong with any of their stuff imo

also nice to hear some clean singing in a serpants tongue - although his voice is alot lower than Jamie's and doesn't quite have the same effect Jamie's did

Listened to full album in it's entirety today. It reminds me alot of the later Death records, except not AS progressive. There are alot of unique melodies and riffs. I'd give it a solid 9.5/10. What'd you guys think?
#35
I like it alot, but it doesnt stand out to me as much as Conclusion of an age, but that might be cos I havn't listened to it as much.

Josh's voice is fine, although his cleans are worse, they are still done well.

I prefer the more produced tone on Conclusion too, made the riffs stand out more imo - atm I cant find as many riffs that really stand out to me.

I'd give it an 8.5 though
