Kylesa - "Unspoken"
For a while there, it seemed like Kylesa were releasing too many albums. After a flurry of activity to close out the decade, Kylesa's latest effort, Ultraviolet
, is now out on Season of Mist Records and took three years to complete. The final product is one of the band's most focused efforts to date, eschewing the chaos that their dual drummers entail and entering more into a progressive-sludge realm (if there is such a realm). The video for "Unspoken", directed by Brodie Rush with artwork by Tyson Schroeder, is a children's book told through the eyes of a metalhead.
