Kylesa, 'Static Tensions' (Prosthetic)

Critical Mass
Label:

by David Marchese

Veteran murky metal band Kylesa come from Savannah, Georgia, where the summer air hangs like a damp rag and the thunder cracks louder than God. Fitting, then, that Static, the band's fourth full-length, sounds like home. On standout ground-shakers "To Walk Alone" and "Running Red," guitarist-vocalists Phillip Cope (he growls about dreams) and Laura Pleasants (she keens indecipherably) summon amorphous detuned riffs covered in reverb that suddenly snap into distorted single-note flurries. Throughout, drummers Carl McGinley and Eric Hernandez play tight, tribal beats. The heat subsides at times, but it never breaks.
