Kylesa – Ultraviolet

Kylesa are, along with such other psychedelic sludgy metal counterparts as Mastodon, Baroness, Black Tusk and Zoroaster are part of the Georgian scene, which at this rate could at some point go down as legendary as the early ’80s Bay Area thrash or the late ’80s Floridian death metal scene. Like their contemporaries Mastodon and […]

Kylesa – Spiral Shadow

Ironic that the cover of Kylesa’s new disc is so monochromatic, given all of the color the band has just added to its sound.

Additional information about the limited-edition release, which features […]

Kylesa – Time Will Fuse Its Worth

Here’s my first exposure two this dual drummer owning band and their hefty form of crumbly, dissonant sludge and Im sort of torn on it. On one hand when absorbing this release on a 300 watt stereo at full volume, the Mastodon-ish vibes that careen from the speakers with muscular and angular tones and shuddering, […]
