Savannah, Georgia’s Kylesa return with their fourth full length album Static Tensions. Static Tensions marks album number two for Kylesa with their 5 piece, 2 drummer lineup after 2006’s monumental breakthrough Time Will Fuse Its Worth. And after three years the band is now able to fully utilize the many percussive possibilities that such a lineup provides, immediately apparent on the blistering opening track “Scapegoat”.
Static Tensions also sees Kylesa further progressing with their songwriting, both in terms of the psychedelia suggested on the Time Will Fuse... LP and the sheer brute force and memorable structures they’ve become known for over the course of their 3 albums and several EPs. The at times blackened death metal feel of “Said And Done” and the piano-laced, middle-eastern tinged “Running Red” highlight this diversity of sound, yet at all times it remains distinctly Kylesa. The percussion heavy “Unknown Awareness” is perhaps the most emotionally heavy tune the band has ever written.
Static Tensions is the definitive statement from Kylesa so far and will surely top year end lists across the board. Adorned with artwork by John Dyer Baizley of Baroness the album’s visual aesthetic matches the cerebral nature of the music within. With a massive touring schedule planned throughout 2009 Kylesa will be out constantly in full support of their singular, unique vision.
