SYKOSIS is the complex creation of unified musicians, and dedicated madmen. With gut wrenching, heart stopping breakdowns, mixed along with melodic choruses and widely changed tempos, there is really no label or genre you put SYKOSIS into.
Bred from pure originality, along with a selfless frame of mind, the music speaks for itself when it's all said and done. The only way to explain it is, be a witness at your own risk. While always looking ahead to get to the next destination, SYKOSIS always seeks to be on a higher level without anything getting under our skin or in our way. We strive to never be outdone or put on a shelf and to never stop at any cost.
With a new approach that brings meaningful lyrics and sound, and an undying approach to always be that much more advanced then everyone else, it always feels like a never ending war within the soul of this band. Separating the music diversity into a hundred different directions, the sound of the music known as SYKOSIS is unquestionably unique and very widely ranged, and brought together with a fine coated layer of heavy metal and hardcore meets intelligence among the scene.
Emotions and past battles always seems to be the inspiration to keep things moving forward with SYKOSIS. In hindsight, always remembering where we all began, and where we come from SYKOSIS. Members all have musical pasts and we all suffered fallouts with past projects due to all types of differences. We all have known eachother for quite some time and all decided to get together and start a super group of metal. Stronger than ever before, locked and loaded and ready to annihilate everything in our path while proving to everyone that we have something to say. We have a voice, and we are pissed off at the world and we are ready to take it to the next level!!
Clearly speaking, there is no more strain to hold down future progress of SYKOSIS. Everyone is on the same page, unlike all our past experiences. Now its progression and more from here on out. Combining and comparing the live performance and overall sound to the deep roots of how each member derived from other bands is what will always set this group apart from the rest.
With experience at hand, this strongly aligned the progress made in all our past live shows, playing with national acts such as: Otep, Ill Nino, Mushroomhead, Kittie, Caliban, Sworn Enemy, Ion Dissonance, , Stemm, Dope, 36 Crazyfists, Walls Of Jericho, HED (P.E.), Across Five Aprils, Bleeding Through, A New Revolution, Solipsist, Ventana, Carnifex, Sister Sin, Flyleaf, Forever In Terror, Kill Whitney Dead, Droid, The Demonstration, Dance Club Massacre, (216), Unified Culture, State Of Conviction, Pitch Black Forecast, Devildriver, Misery Signals, Kataklysm, Karen Page, Polkadot Cadaver, Dog Fashion Disco, Nile, Panic Cell, Everytime I Die, Haste The Day, between the buried and me, soilwork, Throwdown, Fear Factory, Chimaira, Soulfly, Mindless Self Indulgence, Hatebreed, Drowning Pool, Nonpoint, Sepultura, Veil Of Maya, Born Of Osiris, Divine Heresy, In Flames, Droid, Dry Kill Logic, My Ruin, Five Bolt Main, Goatwhore, Oblige, Morbid Angel, Deicide, Breaking Benjamin, Taproot, Soil, Ten Years After, 40 Below Summer, and others.
This has always been the main tool to reach a fan base on a wide, and higher level. Aside from gaining fans from all different genres of music, which is the reason SYKOSIS, over the years of experience has shared the stage with such a diverse collection of national acts. The history has been settled in, and now it is a new time to make a bigger mark in the music world.
SYKOSIS consists of 6 pissed off people who have always been outcasts and will never be pushed aside or pushed away! SYKOSIS will not be put to rest until we say we can. The drive that is carried throughout everything, is the logic to why we have the mindset to go to higher grounds. There is one reason to keep everything above water still, and that is the pure love for writing music and sharing our personal creations with everyone. In the end, above all the flashing lights, rumors, drama, and bullshit, the music is what it's all about and that’s what it will always be about with SYKOSIS, not the hype. Just the music.
All there is left to say is, support your local SYKOSIS. Everyday we make changes that only improve ourselves as a whole. On the horizon there is a stronger, more versatile, newer, and updated SYKOSIS. With all of that said, it's time to put your fist in the air and witness the mayhem of a well structured killing machine, and come release your inner demons with us.
