  • I’m not quite sure how to write a review for this, because this album is difficult to classify. To some extent Kylesa sounds like old school punk music, but there are weird ambient noises similar to a Pink Floyd album thrown in along with some hardcore, speed metal, and sludge elements. However, the most unusual aspect is the presence of not one but two percussionists.
    That’s right, there are two drummers in Kylesa, and that is what gives the album a primal atmosphere. I can’t help but feel like the natives are summoning King Kong when I listen to this: especially on tracks like “Unknown Awareness”. That double drum attack is what makes this band stand out to me. Sure they have other solid features, like three vocalists, but the percussion work is outstanding.
    I wouldn’t call this the best metal album of 2009, but I’d have absolutly no problem giving it an honorable mention. Go tell your friends, “Kylesa has arrived!”
