Review: Kylesa – Spiral Shadow (2010)

 Genre: sludge metal, psychedelic
 Label: Prosthetic Records
 Country: United States
 Listen: MySpace

Kylesa’s newest! Whereas Static Tensions was meant to destroy everything that crossed it’s path, this release is much more subtle in its darkness and well, tension. I would even say that this record is predominantly psychedelic, the sludge part has much less emphasis than their previous works. More clean vocals, more drawn out melodic pieces, more strangely hypnotizing riffs and drum work and less in-your-face agression.

For me it was quite hard to get used to, because I absolutely adore Static Tensions, but this seems to work as well. For people who didn't appreciate their earlier work this may mean that they may appreciate this record!

This review was previously released elsewhere.
