Interesting to compare Sylosis to AILD. They may share some very similar sounding melodies, but their musical style is worlds apart. I like this band because they can combine so many metal subgenres together.
Speaking of The Monolith (zing), here's The Monolith's review of Dormant Heart: http://www.themonolith.com/music/review-sylosis-dormant-heart/ - "...there aren’t many bands kicking out headbangers of this quality right now."
Compared to their other releases which I personally thought were overly long snooze fests, Dormant Heart is a breath of fresh air to me from this band. They really pulled this one together good. A good start for metal in 2015.
Not that it would have saved this album by any means (even as an EP it would've been horrible), but what the fuck's up with all these excessively stretched intros/outros/fades? It's one gigantic filler.
