“Dormant Heart” doesn’t doesn’t initially astound but that is thanks to Sylosis‘ growing strength. They certainly meet expectations and often just about edge them. Their evolution is quaint but subtle tones can be heard that show “Dormant Heart” is an evolution from previous accomplishments. The strive towards heavy, brutal, fast metal infusing with the “prog rock, soundscapey music”, as guitarist and vocalist Josh Middleton so often refers to, is at full display in the standard releases’ closer, ‘Quiescent’.
