Sylosis release first Monolith studio video

Sylosis have released their first behind the scenes clip from the recording of their new album, ‘Monolith.’ The album was recorded with Romesh Dodangoda in Wales at Monnow Valley Studio and mastered by Jens Bogren (Soilwork, Amon Amarth, Bloodbath) at Fascination Street Studios.

Set for a release on the 5th October, guitarist/vocalist Josh Middleton previously commented: “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. The idea for the concept was very loosely inspired by the Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice,” continued Middleton. “It’s quite far-fetched but it’s about this guy who loses his wife and tries to bring her back from underworld. This giant monolith starts to grow out of her tomb. The most prevalent theme beneath it all is sort of accepting that you might not be as nice a person as you once thought. It sounds really cheesy but everyone has a darker side to their personality in terms of being selfish, manipulative or dishonest.”
