Kylesa - Ultraviolet

Savannah, Georgia sludge-metal warriors Kylesa started out as a slobbering two-drummer beast of a band, and they’re still that. But on their last two albums, they’ve been injecting their ferocious roar with more and more gloriously anthemic ’90s alt-rock melody. Ultraviolet, their latest, is a triumph in every way imaginable, and it’s one of the year’s best rock LPs thus far. We’ve posted the early songs “Unspoken,” “Quicksand,” “Vulture’s Landing,” and “We’re Taking This,” and now you can (and should) stream the entire monstrous thing at Pitchfork.

Ultraviolet is out 5/28 via Season Of Mist.

  1. I love 90s alt-rock (as my avatar suggests) but this isn’t really doing it for me the way Static Tensions and Spiral Shadow did. Those two albums were ferocious and unpredictable, there is just nothing else quite like them. By comparison, this one sounds a bit predictable. Maybe it needs a few more spins to open up.
