Lamb Of God Drops Off Tour Due To Terror Concerns

Update: Randy Blythe has now posted a very lengthy statement online explaining the band's reasoning behind dropping off the tour. You can read that article over here.

After the ISIS-led terrorist attacks in Paris last week, Lamb Of God has decided to drop off all remaining European tour dates with Children Of Bodom and Sylosis. The band comments:

"Due to concerns brought to our attention by the venue security team yesterday in Tilburg - and continued general concerns across Europe - we have decided against putting our fans, our crew and ourselves in this position night after night and will be canceling the remainder of our performances in Europe. This is a decision we are making on behalf of the fans, our crew, and our band, as well as the well-being of everyone's family, friends and loved ones at home. Stay safe, and we will see you very soon."

The tour will continue without Lamb Of God, however, with Children Of Bodom commenting: "Lamb of God has chosen to leave the European tour due to security concerns in Europe. Our team has been working very hard to make all of the remaining shows happen. WE WANT TO, AND HAVE DECIDED TO, CONTINUE ON THE ROAD AND PLAY THE REST OF THE TOUR. Sylosis also will be joining us on their scheduled appearances.

"Here is what we know so far. Unfortunately the promoter has decided to move forward and cancel tonight's show in Oberhausen, Germany, and the additional shows in Germany. At this time, the remaining schedule will move forward as this (we ARE looking to add more shows FYI). We WILL keep you updated as we have changes, and we are doing our best to keep you informed as quickly as possible on everything." More...

Sylosis Streaming Full Album

U.K. based modern thrash band Sylosis has made the entire upcoming album, "Dormant Heart," available for streaming. Give it a listen through Nuclear Blast here.

Despite the name, "Dormant Heart" is not a peaceful album: It’s about a powerful force unleashing anger against everyday injustice and a sleeping society that lets these things wash over them.

Speaking about the album Josh Middleton states: “It's the most pissed-off, aggressive and intense album we've done, yet it still retains the epic, progressive and melodic side we're also known for. It's a very gloomy and atmospheric album. We've been through a lot as a band and individuals and we've made our darkest album to date.”

Sylosis Releases Animated Music Video

Despite the name, Sylosis' forthcoming release "Dormant Heart" is not a peaceful album: it’s about a powerful force unleashing anger against everyday injustice and a sleeping society that lets these things wash over them, which is highlighted by the band's graphic new video for the track "Leech."

Although the video is animated, the content is not for the faint hearted. Due to the nature of the video, it won't be available on YouTube - fans can however watch it at Kerrang here.

The video was animated by Oliver Jones of Better Feeling Films in the U.K. It took five hours to film the band and story footage and roughly 60 days to animate. Oliver was the only person working on the project, from shooting the live action footage to animating the entire video. The process he used is called "rotoscoping," which involves tracing over footage, frame by frame.

Sylosis frontman Josh commented: "Leech is the second single off the new album. I would say the album is probably our heaviest to date but this song showcases a more melodic and stripped back side to what we do. It's a really dark, sinister doomy sounding song and we thought it would be cool to try something a bit different for the video and have it reflect the vibe of the music. We've always wanted to have an animated music video and it allows for a bit more creativity and makes it stand out."

Nuclear Blast recorded a series of video clips of Josh Middleton discussing the album, and today the second trailer is available online.

The artwork was created by Bristol based artist Bonfire. On the theme of the artwork, Josh comments: "The cover relates to sacrifice (the sacrificial lamb is more of a symbol than something to be taken literally) but also the looming, oppressing figure in the background represents corruption and being forced into something against your will."

Sylosis Discusses New Album

Sylosis is set to release fourth studio album "Dormant Heart" on the 16th of January 2015 and in anticipation of the release, Nuclear Blast recorded a series of official album interviews with front man Josh Middleton.

The first trailer is now online and sees Josh discussing the title of the new album, where it was recorded, and who was involved. Check it out below.

Despite the name, "Dormant Heart," is not a peaceful album: it’s about a powerful force unleashing anger against everyday injustice and a sleeping society that lets these things wash over them.

The artwork was created by Bristol based artist Bonfire (Opeth, Satyricon, Kataonia), who has previously designed t-shirts for the band. On the theme of the artwork, Josh comments: "The cover relates to sacrifice (the sacrificial lamb is more of a symbol than something to be taken literally) but also the looming, oppressing figure in the background represents corruption and being forced into something against your will."

Speaking about the album, Josh states: “It's the most pissed-off, aggressive and intense album we've done, yet it still retains the epic, progressive and melodic side we're also known for. It's a very gloomy and atmospheric album. We've been through a lot as a band and individuals and we've made our darkest album to date.

“The title refers to people going through life on autopilot and being one of the herd, how a lot of people simply accept the way things are just because it's 'tradition' as opposed to taking a good look at the world around you and thinking for yourself. Sometimes there are catalysts that happen and change our perspective or consciousness.” More...

Sylosis Posts Guitar Playthrough Video

Sylosis recently dropped a music video for "Mercy" (available here), taken off the upcoming "Dormant Heart" album.

The band has recorded a guitar tutorial for the track, which can be seen below.

Commenting on the track front man Josh states: "Mercy is the first single off the new album. It's got a pretty dark and heavy vibe to it but it's one of the most melodic tracks on the album at the same time. It's got a big slow, doomy outro with an octave pedal on the guitars so that's going to rumble some guts live. For this video, we wanted to keep it dark and claustrophobic. It's got some of the artwork from the album and inlay illustrated as well which came together really well."

Sylosis Premieres "Mercy" Music Video

U.K.'s Sylosis recently announced "Dormant Heart" as the title of the fourth studio album, but despite the name, it’s not a peaceful album: It’s about a powerful force unleashing anger against everyday injustice and a sleeping society that lets these things wash over them. Today, the band dropped the new single and music video for the track "Mercy," which can be seen in the player below.

Commenting on the track, frontman Josh states: "Mercy is the first single off the new album. It's got a pretty dark and heavy vibe to it but it's one of the most melodic tracks on the album at the same time.

The album was produced by Middleton with the help of engineer Scott Atkins and was mastered by TesseracT guitarist Acle Kahney.

Sylosis began tracking the new album back in March 2014, working away secretly alongside touring commitments. Drum tracks were recorded in May at Monkey Puzzle Studios by original drummer Rob Callard, who parted ways with the band last month due to time restraints. After filling in for some live shows during Sylosis’ Spring 2014 tour, Bleed From Within’s drummer Ali Richardson is now a permanent member of the band.
