Syl by Strapping Young Lad
Released: Feb 2003
Label: Century Media
Using the then-recent events of September 11, 2001 as fuel for their anger, Strapping Young Lad put together a more collaborative record, with grittier production, and more of a thrash/death metal song structuring than the band had been known for previously. The result is an open-throated blast of ferocious riffing and high-flying choruses that is kind of like what would happen if Megadeth covered Sepultura's Chaos A.D.. SYL's tendencies towards industrial-ism are toned down and the album is highlighted by the fantastic one-two-three punch of "Relentless," "Rape Song" and "Aftermath."
