The thing I like most about Sylosis is how they blend old school thrash and technical death metal along the lines of Death to produce some insanely catchy tunes.

Their new disc Monolith is chock full of catchy straight-forward groove with just enough sweep-tastic guitar work to keep the album from ever getting boring to me. Don't get me wrong, I love  technically as much as the next guy but if it gets to be too much, I tend to lose interest.

While the video for "Fear the World" is of the standard dudes-kicking-out-the-jams-in-the-warehouse variety, the song is an excellent example of what Sylosis are all about.

Monolith is out now on Nuclear Blast Records.
