    If you want to hear more Sylosis, PLEASE check out Reflections Through Fire. Also, as a guitarist you'll appreciate they're in E standard

    Such a sick band! Josh is an insane lead guitarist and a great vocalist as well - his pitched screams are cool. I think he should do more backup vocals in Architects with their future material... it would go great with Sam's voice! I was stoked when I found out he joined Architects, cause Sylosis is one of my older favorite bands, and Architects is a band I came to love much later on. I was also a little surprised because stylistically the two bands are so much different.😂 I first discovered this band like 10 years ago when I was just starting high school. It blew me away to find out all of their songs are in E standard, when I first got into them. Their old album, Conclusion of An Age got me hooked, mostly due to Josh's nice guitar work and the catchy melodies. They had a different vocalist back then, before Josh took on vocal duties. The old vocalist is in the band Heart of a Coward, and they're pretty awesome too. They are definitely one of the best examples of riffs in standard being super heavy imo (along with Opeth). Lol I suggest you check out more of their discog! You should check out the crazy sweep section in their song Empyreal!

I also had never heard a Sylosis song before now either, so I will definitely be checking out more of their stuff. Chunky RIffs need to be a thing by the way Nik... Gojira should just about cover the whole series! 👍

    Thanks for the great information Nik. Here's a question ... Do you happen to know if it's possible to download a preset from Tone Cloud that was created using BIAS Amp 2 Pro and a 3rd party speaker cabinet IR? I have several presets in Tone Cloud that I created with BIAS Amp 2 Pro that utilize a custom cabinet IR and it would be great if they could be downloaded to one of the four (4) user presets on the Spark and still sound the same as they do when I play them directly from BIAS Amp 2 Pro. Can you verify that this is possible? Btw ... I understand that the Spark does not have all the controls that BIAS Amp 2 Pro does, but I don't care. I don't need that capability on the Spark, I only want to play the Spark and have it sound the same as the BIAS Amp 2 Pro original.
