Editorial Reviews

Sylosis, the quartet from Reading, England, have been considered among the UK's greatest metal exports in recent years. Since the 2009 release of their debut album, Conclusion of an Age, Sylosis have acquired a respectable global fanbase and proved their live chops by playing with bands such as As I Lay Dying, Fear Factory and The Black Dahlia Murder, as well as on big festival stages of Download, Sonisphere and Graspop.

Now they return with their second metallic gem, Edge of the Earth - their most intense, vigorous and ambitious material to date. It is overflowing with devastating riffs, thrilling melodies, soulful solos, progressive twists and turns and an ubiquitous dark atmosphere. This more mature approach comes after years on the road and inspiration from prog stalwarts such as Rush and Pink Floyd and is a worthy successor to their stellar debut!

So, this is one of my favorite metal albums of the last decade. It's simply incredible, but it took a little while for me to warm up to it, but then it grew on me very quickly. Anyway, the music is amazing, give it a try. About the vinyl edition, it's spectacular. I've had this on CD for a few months before I got it on vinyl, and the vinyl brought an entirely new listening experience to my ears. It's spectacular. If you still can, get the 2 LP Back On Black release. They're blue records. The gatefold is simply beautiful. I love the artwork. If you don't have a turntable, what are you waiting for? Buy one!

melody, heaviness, softness and amazing guitar playing. one of the best albums i've heard in a long while. and i have been a metal fan since 1985. if you're a guitar player you must own this album. vocals aren't too bad either. guttaral mayhem without all the screechy shrills.

Great technicality and finesse. Vocals are amazing; low and gritty and high/emotional when they need to be. An amazing album. Most people call them thrash but to limit these guys to just thrash metal is an injustice.

It's kind of hard to level any kind of criticism toward a band that can play circles around you or the competition, and Sylosis are definitely at the top of their game as far as modern thrash is concerned.
"The Edge Of The World" is an ambitious slugfest of an album. The guitars move along at the speed of light, and stay on the side of thrash without venturing into Dragonforce territory, where a band like this could end up, and that would not be good. Josh Middleton is a fine guitarist indeed and for the genre a powerful vocalist. The band flirts ever so slightly with some more prog oriented outfits, Dream Theater comes to mind, but stays solidly within the thrash boundaries, unlike Revocation, where that band delightfully hops all over the place, especially in mid-song breaks.
And that is where the problem, if any, lies. Sylosis are fine representatives of modern thrash, and the acoustic interludes and occasional keyboards add the necessary color to the manic guitars. What would make a good album better to me would be a bit of a groove here and there just to mess with the tempos a bit. But that's a personal thing, not a criticism. "The Edge Of The World" is a lengthy CD and requires repeated listenings before it starts to grow on you, but that too is usually the sign of an album that won't get dull any time soon. Fans of Megadeth and other more complex thrash outfits will be happy with this album.

I bought this CD after hearing one song, Where the sky Ends. I should have done more research on this band, because the only track I had heard was an awesome instrumental. If you are into the Screaming style Metal this is for you...I was just expecting something different.

Sylosis really came into their own on their second full length album. Featuring a great paced sound and aggressive song structure. This album is definitely worth checking out. The only problem I see is that the songs could use a hook or 2. Be that as it may, This is definitely a band to be reckoned with for years to come... 4.4 out of 5

Best album of all time hands down. I feel bad about only giving it 5 stars. Buy several. This album should be a million times platinum.
