Sylosis Reissue “Conclusion Of An Age”, Stream B-Side Track “Plight Of The Soul”

Sylosis have reissued their debut album “Conclusion Of An Age.“ The effort has been remastered and it can be found in digital outlets and on limited edition vinyl. The re-release also includes a b-side track titled “Plight Of The Soul,“ which you can check out below. Josh Middleton commented:

“We had a great time recording ‘Conclusion‘. It was our first time in a real studio with an outside producer and we had a few months to work on the record. Scott Atkins was always great to work with. He has an amazing idea for tones but also helped sculpt some of the songs into what they are today. ‘Plight of the Soul‘ is a left over B-side track that has never seen the light of day before. Before we signed to Nuclear Blast we were on a small UK headline tour with Romeo Must Die supporting who we became friends with. Their singer Adam was previously in the UK thrash/metalcore band Stampin’ Ground (along with producer Scott Atkins) so we got him in the studio to do backing vocals on this track.”

Sylosis Premiere “Worship Decay” Music Video

Sylosis have premiered a new video for their new song “Worship Decay.” Josh Middleton commented:

“With everything happening in our world right now, we wanted to keep things moving in Sylosis‘ world. We started writing new music as we entered the first set of lockdowns and ‘Worship Decay‘ quickly developed as a song we feel confident stands up by itself and showcases something different for Sylosis. We’re of course looking forward to playing music live again (hopefully soon!), but it feels great to be able to continue creating music and sharing it with our fans during this time of uncertainty and unrest.”

Sylosis Release Extended Version Of Recent In-Studio Performance

Sylosis have released an extended version of their recent in-studio live performance. Those that pay to watch the set at this location will also receive live audio of the performance. As a preview, you can watch a video for “I Sever” below. Josh Middleton commented:

“I’m excited to share the full set we recorded ahead of our support slot on Trivium‘s ‘A Light Or A Distant Mirror‘ stream event from a couple of weeks ago. Our set for their show was limited due to the slot, so we decided we’d like to release our own extended cut for our fans. This is brand-new territory for us all and was a great project to work on. We hope you all enjoy the show!”

Godla commented:

“By keeping the set times between 5 and 15 minutes for each artist, it allows me to not only keep things moving, but mix it up in ways that conventional festivals simply can’t. Every single hour will contain big names and emerging artists right next to each other.

I’m trying to look at the bright side of our current situation, and not only make this an entertaining way to see the artists you love flex their creativity in new ways, but hope this event acts as a place of discovery for every viewer out there.

Finding a band or artist to fall in love with is the mark of a great festival to me, and it’s my honor to share the work of these amazing individuals I curated because I’m passionate about them. I’ve been in touch with all of them every step of the way, and some even managed to throw me a few surprises.

I’m honored and humbled to have all of them part of this, they truly went above and beyond to showcase their craft for the Slay At Home fest, and I can’t wait for the world to see something really special come to life this weekend.”

Money raised from the event will benefit MusiCares and Global Giving.

Sylosis said the following:

“We wish to inform our fans that Sylosis will be taking a temporary hiatus. Most will know that Josh is close friends with Architects and he will be helping out with guitar duties for their upcoming tours on the ‘All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us‘ cycle.

With respect to Sylosis fans, the band has decided to take some time off to allow Josh to focus on these commitments.

Rest assured, Sylosis will be back with a new record in the future but for now we hope we have your understanding and we’ll see you all soon!

Sylosis Premiere New Song “Different Masks On The Same Face”

Sylosis have premiered a new song titled “Different Masks On The Same Face.“ Check it out below:

Josh Middleton said the following about the song:

“The track was sort of leftover from the Dormant Heart writing period. It’s a little bit different for us and isn’t necessarily a new direction we’re heading in by any means. We figured instead of that track going to waste that we would release it as a kind of one-off single. For me it’s one of the heaviest songs we’ve done. It’s got a sort of punky black metal vibe to it. Really dark and aggressive sounding. It’s really straight to the point and ended up being the shortest song we’ve ever released but it’s still a riff fest. The title of the track came from watching hours of David Icke lectures last summer!”
