They base themselves on 1980s thrash metal crossed with modern styles of music like melodic death metal. Sylosis was formed in late 2000 by original member Josh Middleton when they were back in school, as a bunch of kids who just wanted to play metal; mainly old school thrash and death metal.

Killswitch Engage Jesse Leach Download 2012 Thrash Hits

It’s the first Killswitch Engage w/ Jesse Leach London show ever and their first gig over here since Download Festival last summer and it’s well and truly sold out. It’s more than just a homecoming. Is this the gig of 2013? At least until their appearance at Hevy Festival this summer…

Pre-gig meal: Wahaca. Pork pibil tacos, steak tacos, corn and a celebratory Cinco de Mayo margarita.

Top 6 things we learnt watching Jesse Leach & Killswitch Engage in London…

Sylosis live at Liverpool O2 Academy 2 on 1st May 2012 c/o Matt Thomas Thrash Hits

Those not-nearly-as-praised-as-they-ought-to-be Reading metallers, Sylosis, finished their final UK tour before releasing their as-yet-untitled third studio album. Okay, so Sylosis do get a lot of praise, but that’s because they a) awesome, and b) they keep getting more awesome, which means c) that they deserve even more praise than they get already.

Anyway, we made sure our Liverpool snapper, Matt Thomas, was in place to snap the whole shebang when it rolled into his hometown.

Remember ten years ago when the British metal scene was alive and kicking with bands like Raging Speedhorn, Pitchshifter and Stampin’ Ground storming stages nationwide? It may not have lasted that long but you have to admit the UK scene has seen some drastic improvement over recent years. We thought we’d head down to Islington Academy and bang our heads to some homegrown talent.

Is there anything better than a Thrash Hits Festival Splash Page? Yeah, loads of things but you won’t find the best online festival coverage on any of them. You’ll find that right here.

Individual band coverage (interviews, photos, setlists and some tiny reviews), rumours, drinking games, stage times, dodgy photos of as many sexy ladies in various states of safe-for-work undress as we can legitimately get away with? It’s all here.

Live: Sylosis @ London Camden Underworld – 25 February 2011

March 11th, 2011

After the drooling adulation we threw at Sylosis‘ new album Edge Of The Earth, you might think the chances of us missing their headlining show in London were worse than the odds of a Nickelback cover band surviving a support slot on a Slayer tour. And you would be correct. Here’s a bumper crop things we found out from tonight.

Album: Sylosis – Edge Of The Earth

February 23rd, 2011

Sylosis
Edge Of The Earth
Nuclear Blast
11 March 2011

by Tom Dare

Sylosis are a band still tagged with the word “potential”, which might give the (totally wrong) impression they aren’t already fucking brilliant. In Sylosis’ case, it’s that they sound capable of greatness but haven’t quite reached the heights their work thus far hints at.
