Despite the name, SYLOSIS' forthcoming release Dormant Heart is not a peaceful album: it’s about a powerful force unleashing anger against everyday injustice and a sleeping society that lets these things wash over them. Frontman Josh Middleton explains further in the first official track by track clip for the new album. Watch Josh explain how the tracks “Where The Wolves Come To Die”, “Victims And Pawns”, “Dormant Heart”, “To Build A Tomb”, “Overthrown” and “Leech” came about, here: http://youtu.be/8QiVe9-GKnw Dormant Heart was produced by Middleton with the help of engineer Scott Atkins and was mastered by TesseracT guitarist Acle Kahney. The artwork was created by Bristol based artist BONFIRE (Opeth, Satyricon, Kataonia), who has previously designed some t-shirts for the band. On the theme of the artwork, Josh comments: "The cover relates to sacrifice (the sacrificial lamb is more of a symbol than something to be taken literally) but also the looming, oppressing figure in the background represents corruption and being forced into something against your will."

Speaking about the album Josh states: “It's the most pissed-off, aggressive and intense album we've done, yet it still retains the epic, progressive and melodic side we're also known for. It's a very gloomy and atmospheric album. We've been through a lot as a band and individuals and we've made our darkest album to date.” “The title refers to people going through life on autopilot and being one of the herd, how a lot of people simply accept the way things are just because it's 'tradition' as opposed to taking a good look at the world around you and thinking for yourself. Sometimes there are catalysts that happen and change our perspective or consciousness.” Dormant Heart track list: 1. Where The Wolves Come To Die 2. Victims And Pawns 3. Dormant Heart 4.
