Format: Audio CD
Under the banner of Kylesa, Laura Pleasants and Phillip Cope continue to push sludge metal in new and interesting directions. While Spiral Shadow was touted as being the one that will shake up and regenerate Kylesa into a catchier and more melodic version of itself, Ultraviolet comes out like a kick to the gut. Once you recover your wind, you start to realize that Kylesa haven't given up on their almost bludgeoning sense of destructive melody. Everything we love about them is still intact and more sharply focused than on previous album Spiral Shadow, including much of the layering and stacking of elements that saw a brief intro before and is now given free reign. This makes Kylesa a double threat. Not only are they a devastating live band but now they've also become one of the better headphone bands out there. This album has a slightly more morose and somber sound to it that absolutely works to the band's benefit. Kylesa can really do no wrong and releases like this will only spread their Savannah gospel. Get this today, don't wait!

Ultraviolet by Kylesa is a powerful, driving record that shows an evolution of the band's sound into new areas. In my opinion, it is the best Kylesa record to date and is the first record of theirs to really make me stop and take notice of the sound they have been cultivating over the past 11 years. To be honest, I came to this album a little bit skeptical. I first listened to Kylesa on their 2010 release Spiral Shadow (so to be clear, I haven't been a fan from the beginning). While I enjoyed that album, there were several things that weren't exactly my cup of tea. I felt that the "dual drummer" sound was crowded and confused, the songs were a bit repetitious, and the strengths of the multiple vocalists weren't being fully utilized. I am happy to say that all of these concerns have been addressed on Ultraviolet and the result is a fantastic record.

The album opens with the powerful "Exhale", showcasing the chant-style vocals that Kylesa is known for. Right away I noticed that the drums were less crowded, resulting in a cleaner sound. This song really drives and kicks things off in a great way. The second song, "Unspoken", begins to mix in a bit of the softer/trippy side of the band, which is more heavily showcased on the back half of the album. This is one of the catchier songs on Ultraviolet and showcases Laura Pleasants vocals in a great way. The album progresses from there, with the first half focusing more on heavier/powerful songs and the back half focusing on somewhat lighter songs. Overall, the mood of the album just feels comfortable and you really get the sense that Kylesa is settling into a sound of their own.

While I am a fan on the entire album, there are two tracks in particular that really stand out for me.

Kylesa has been on a roll lately - their last two records were album of the year material, and this one is no different. This one was a bit of a grower for me. At first, I was disappointed, if slightly so, at the first side of the record because the band wasn't really breaking any new ground. But over time, the first half of this record grew on me to the point where I consider it among their best work. There's nothing wrong with knowing your strengths as a heavy metal band and fully exploiting them. Cavernous riffs abound and the dual drumming attack is just as ferocious as ever. Laura Pleasants and Phillip Cope continue their scientific experiment in tonal research. These two put more guitar effect surprises in some songs (often buried deep in the background, rewarding repeat listens in headphones late into the night) than most "experimental" heavy bands do on entire albums or in entire careers. In that way they are carving out sonic real estate that's inhabited by a select few - Radiohead and The Dillinger Escape Plan come to mind. Track number three is a bit different than anything they've done before in that it's a little more on-the-nose southern sludge (they're from Savannah, but never evoked "the south" to me in their music like many of their brethren). Kylesa has never been a particularly bluesy band, but they swing it a little bit in the main riff of the masterful "Grounded." The way Laura's voice soothingly glides over this enormous Pepper-era COC style riff is dare I say one of the sexist sounds I've ever heard coming out of a heavy metal band.

Which bring us to Laura's singing, which is what really makes this the best Kylesa record.

This is an album that I enjoyed. Purchasing this CD based on a friend's recommendation, I didn't know what to expect. Once I finished listening to the album I pressed repeat and listened to it again. Highly recommended.

Multiple quality songs, but not as cohesive nor possessing any stone-cold classics as their previous two albums. Worth a pickup for already established fans, but curious or new fans should choose either or the previous two albums.

This album's like a hot biker chick. Her hair's messed up from the wind. She's covered in ink, has scars from the road and has rage behind the eyes. All of which make her violently beautiful. Heard someone call it their "White Pony" and think that's a pretty good summation. Only thing wrong with the record is that it's short but that's still cool. Gives me a reason to hit repeat.
