LIVE: Sylosis @ Club Academy, Manchester (01/10/2011)

Date: October 1st, 2011
Venue: Club Academy, Manchester
Support: Chapters, Anterior, Malefice


Considering the temperature outside, I dread to think what it is going to be like in underground Club Academy venue tonight. Having just started their headline tour, Sylosis are making the most of their time left in the UK before supporting As I Lay Dying over in the US.

ALBUM: Anterior – Echoes Of The Fallen

Release Date: September 13th, 2011
Label: Metal Blade Records
Website: None available


After a four year lull since debut ‘This Age Of Silence’, Anterior are back with another effort, their second on Metal Blade, this time entitled ‘Echoes Of The Fallen’. The Welsh quintet play in a style very similar to Malefice and Sylosis, with more of an influence from melodeath. They’re one of these bands that, for whatever reason, hasn’t taken off as much as they should have. Despite the 310,000 odd plays on, you’ll still find them fairly low on the bills at festivals and such. It’s unclear why this is, but after the first listen through of ‘Echoes…’, the answer may be obvious. They just lack the edge, the je ne sais quoi that their contemporaries possess.

Date: February 21st, 2011

It’s quite clear that upon entering the room that it’s going to be a good night for all.
