'Dormant' is not a word that you can associate with metallers Sylosis, The band's new release. 'Dormant Heart.' is not a peaceful album, it's a powerfulforce, unleashing anger against every day injustice and a sleeping society that lets these things wash over them.
Frontman Josh Middleton explains: "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..."
'Dormant Heart' retains the distinctive Sylosis sound; a mixture of intense heavy guitar riffs, breakdowns, thudding rhythm and Middleton's growl, It's difficult to tie-down the band into a specific type of metal genre, Stomping opener "Where The Wolves Come To Die" unleashes an aggressive start whilst "Leech" provides those breakdowns and epic choruses. "Mercy" demonstrates the mix of galloping rhythm and melodic guitar riffs whilst Josh fiercely declares "there's no redemption."
Aptly named closer track "Quiescent" provides over 9 minutes of solemn prog, showing a less forceful side of the band.
