Kylesa – Static Tensions Reviews

Static Tensions

2009 release. Savannah, Georgia’s Kylesa returns with their fourth full-length album, their second as a five-piece with two drummers after 2006’s monumental breakthrough Time Will Fuse Its Worth. Three years later, the band fully utilizes the many percussive possibilities that such a lineup provides, immediately apparent on the blistering opening track, ‘Scapegoat’.

    I enjoy everything that this band has done, but that did their sound to new heights. This album has it all. It is hard, but music, psychedelic, yet organic and primal. The great music is also by the great metal song. Laura and Phil Pleasant Cope show great musical maturity with her vocal performances on this album. They know how and when to use certain styles of singing and never away from the music.
      The lyrics are very well made and abstract enough to understand the meaning of the songs to his own interpretation.
      Basically, I could on and on this album. This needs to be heard by fans of heavy music, or any kind of music in general.

    Breakthrough Heavy Metal Band of 2009?
    I got this CD because Kylesa was going to open up for Mastodon on Mastodon’s recent Crack the Skye tour…man, was I amazed!

    Looking forward to seeing them live.
    This CD is difficult to classify. It’s a little too experimental for me. There is some definate punk influence in there.

    This album has everything you need, when you are in timeless Heavy Rock: Riffs Galore, Southern Comfort, refrigerators madness, tribal ecstasy, Musings spaced-out, avant-garde ideas tempos and proggy, Classic Metal, Stoner, thrashy metal, a crust-punk edge, post-punk feel … plus, the growls / cookie munster vocals are gone for good, in my book is a sign of hard-earned maturity.
      It sits comfortably in 2009, and is probably the beginning of my annual list, but it could have blown me in 87, to …
      beautiful, to say the least.
      After a few times, I had the time to go back and play some early Steve Hillage, some can and some Hawkwind (plus Mammatus my other contemporary Faves!): Nothing else was up to standard.
      Well done, well done!

    Georgia’s Finest Do It Again
    This may be my 2nd favorite Kylesa release (the first being the No Ending/110 Degree Heat Index EP).

    It has been mentioned in several reviews that this is the year’s best metal album thus far. I concur. This is a molten slab of ferocious balls out R’n'R.
