Syslosis have you at their “Mercy”

I really wish this was my job because then I wouldn’t be splitting this story inconveniently this way. Anyway, in an earlier post some information on Sylosis’ upcoming fourth full length album, Dormant Heart, was revealed. Included was that the band would be releasing their first single today, the track “Mercy”, which came complete with a music video and can be heard above. Frontman Josh Middleton spoke

‘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.”

That is pretty much it since the album details were included in the other post.

Oh wait! That’s right, for you Sylosis fans whose ears would perk up at the mention of a pre-order, those are available now too. If you’re in the U.s. you can pre-order the record here, while the European pre-order can be found at this location.
