Metal: Year in Review 2010
Like their fellow Southerners in Baroness, Kylesa blur the boundaries of metal and psychedelic rock. This Savannah, GA collective's fifth album, Spiral Shadow, is a tour de force of stoner, sludge, and alterna-rock with two drummers and two vocalists, including the Joan Jett-esque voice of guitarist Laura Pleasants. From High on Fire to Torche on the metal side, the band also weaves into their compositions such rock threads as Soundgarden and Heroes-era Bowie. Kylesa have finally earned their spot next to Kyuss on the best metal bands A to Z list.
