Saw this band in April when they were supporting Killswitch Engage and bought the album on the basis of that gig. I am so glad I did! In my opinion they are our answer to Mastodon. Nice to see a truly talented and great British band in the metal scene.

`Monolith' is the third full length release from the Reading, UK based band Sylosis, and is already being hailed by some as their finest work to date and one can certainly see why. This is a stunning album, which while thrash influenced brings in loads of different styles and tempos as well. When it comes to out and out riff-action then this guys are there in spades, and a concert featuring these guys and Evile would be a match made in heaven (or hell). But, as with many British bands they refuse to stick in just one style and mix it up with both clean vocals and growls, slower riffs and blistering runs. What they never lose is the power and forcefulness of their music. At times they are Mastodon, and at others Nile, and at yet others Trivium, but they are always Sylosis. Thety also know how to use production techniques as while there is plenty of reverb at the beginning of "What Dwells Within" it soon becomes dry and hard as they riff along, and they use this ort of technique to great effect throughout the album.

There are some who view Sylosis as `Progressive Thrash', and that is definitely right if one uses the "progressive" description for band that is genuinely trying to break new ground and refuses just to accept what has gone before. It is truly an incredibly powerful album, and singer/guitarist Josh Middelton is right on the top of his game. Whatever you want from a metal album - this delivers, and how. [...]

After having listened to Monolith in one straight solid run, I am very very impressed. This, in my opinion, is Sylosis' best album. It is of course a lot more like their last album Edge of the Earth rather than their debut Conclusion of an Age. This is of course because the band line up changed between Conclusion of an Age and Edge of the Earth. So it will obviously be in the same vein as their second album. However, I believe that it is better than either one of their first two. Josh's vocals have come on in leaps and bounds they're just as heavy, growling and brutal as ever and yet there is some clean vocals in some of the songs showing how much he has advanced. The sound is incredible, the guitars are sharp, melodic and horrendously heavy all at the same time. The concept of this album is based around Greek mythology, although not 'set' in Greece it just takes some of those ideas and implies them into song.
On the whole, this album is darker and more mysterious than before and this takes Sylosis into a new realm of music which is, to me, absolutely amazing.
I would recommend this album to anyone! If you're looking to get into Sylosis and don't know which one to buy first, buy this one. It's their best. I love this album and am about to go and tell a friend to buy it.

This album is purely awesome. Buy it and bask in the glory of Sylosis' mastery.
