I posted Kylesa’s “Tired Climb” at the beginning of last month, reiterating the Built To Spill influence and overall excellence of the longstanding Savannah psychedelic sludge metal quintet’s fifth album Spiral Shadow. Then you heard another album track “Forsaken” via Adult Swim and Scion A/V’s Metal Swim compilation. Scion had something to do with this “Tired Climb” video, a part of the ongoing Scion Audio/Visual Series. I’m told the company pays for the clips, the band keeps the rights. I still have no idea what they get out of their metal affiliation, but what we get out of it’s a trippy Macbeth’s Witches/technological overdrive love story begging for a sequel.
Spiral Shadow is out 10/26 via Season Of Mist.
