- SYKOSIS - From Ashtabula County Ohio :
Sykosis is a band that aims to continue building upon the great musical
leaps our influences have made for this great artform of extreme metal. We
are one of those bands that is hard to categorize but we've been told we
incorporate epic death metal vocals, hardcore groove with epic guitar riffs
and a sense of aggressive melody
The stage show of Sykosis can
be defined as shock metal. We are not just a plug in and go type of band! We
enjoy putting on an actual show, giving the people what they came and paid
for, to be entertained and shocked!
We are here to release our inner demons; and help the Syko - Nation: the
people that feel the same way we do, release their inner demons as well.
This music is cathartic- it helps us purge the negative and replace it with
a positive by rocking to the extreme!
Lyrically our songs deal with the "demons" of life, such as poverty, abuse,
torture, love loss, betrayal, and war.
Every band member has filled their life around people who understand and
sacrifice time, money and energy for the sake of what we all do, they
understand wholeheartedly that we have a purpose in life and it is music!
