"After Lifeless Years", the new video from U.K. modern thrashers Sylosis, can be viewed below. The song comes off the band's 2008 debut, "Conclusion Of An Age", which was released via Nuclear Blast Records.

Sylosis entered the studio on November 13 to begin recording its second album for an early 2010 release via Nuclear Blast . The CD is being produced by Scott Atkins, who previously worked with the band on their debut.

Commented mainman Josh Middleton: "We're definitely progressing as a band, incorporating some new influences to make an album that's more mature, darker and generally a lot heavier.

"I've been writing riffs thinking things like, 'What if (Tool guitarist) Adam Jones played guitar in Death.' Haha.

"The songs are a little longer this time around and a bit more complex and technical which is something that's just happened naturally."

"We contemplated using other producers but we all really enjoyed working with Scott and we were really happy with the production on the last album. He really pushes for tightness and understands where we're coming from musically.

"In terms of the production, this time we're going to aim for a much more organic, raw sound. Rob's really progressed as a drummer in the last year so I can't wait to hear him lay this stuff down in the studio. Once the drums are complete, we head off on tour with Dragonforce so we wont end up recording the guitars, bass and vocals etc. until January."

The iTunes version of "Conclusion Of An Age" included the exclusive bonus track "The Fate Of Vultures".

According to a press release, the album's lyrical theme deals with "the direction in which the planet is heading and the consequences humanity will face. The album covers many areas but the main concept is the idea of mankind destroying itself through war, self-indulgence, religion etc., and how the earth is being ravaged by humanity to the point of being destroyed… but how the earth's might will eventually prevail!"

The artwork for the album was created by Colin Marks of Rain Song Studios.
