UK thrash outfit Sylosis have released the first single from their upcoming album.
Mercy is lifted from upcoming record Dormant Heart which launches on January 12 via Nuclear Blast – the band’s first with new drummer Ali Richardson, who took over from Rob Callard last month.
Frontman Josh Middleton says: “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, doom outdo with an octave pedal on the guitars, so that’s going to rumble some guts live.”
Dormant Heart is the follow-up to 2012’s Monolith and Middleton recently revealed it’s their most aggressive work to date.
