"Little known secret; METALLICA's ...And Justice For All and DEATH's Symbolic record had a baby. It was tossed into a junkyard and forgotten about. It ate metal and drank gasoline until it broke free and began to kill. SYLOSIS defines modern speed metal. " – Chris Adler (LAMB OF GOD)

SYLOSIS’ latest album, Monolith was recorded with Romesh Dodangoda in Wales at Monnow Valley Studio and mastered by Jens Bogren (SOILWORK, AMON AMARTH, BLOODBATH) at Fascination Street Studios. The concept for the lyrics were loosely inspired by the Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice. The artwork was created this time around by Dan Goldsworthy (ACCEPT, HELL).
In-studio footage chronicling the making of Monolith can also be viewed using the links below.
