ARTIST: Kylesa  220px-Kylesa-TimeWillFuseItsWorth

TITLE: Time Will Fuse Its Worth

YEAR RELEASED: 2006

CHART ACTION: None

SINGLES: None

OTHER SONGS YOU MAY KNOW: If you were into underground-ish sludge metal, yeah. Otherwise…

LINEUP: Phillip Cope, Laura Pleasants, Corey Barhorst, Carl McGinely, Jeff Porter

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT: Fusing influences and sounds, the metal band forges its own place in the metal pantheon.

SOME WORDS, PHRASES AND CLAUSES ABOUT THIS RECORD: Adding a dual drumming combo, and coming up with intriguing mixes of sludge, punk, psychedelia, and classic metal, Kylesa forges its own sound and identity.

Riffs are there, of course. But tracks like “What Becomes and End” and “Hollow Severer” are varied and thrilling, and the record has a more open sound that enhances their musical adventurousness without sacrificing the riff or power. Psychedelic influences also abound within tracks, given the listener space.

A couple of tracks, though, seem like filler (“Intermission” and “Outro”, showing off their dual drummers) but for the most part, this is a killer sludge / stoner metal record that holds up.

NOTES & MINUTIAE: McGlinley and Porter were the third and fourth drummers for the band since 2001.

IS THERE A DELUXE VERSION: No

 

GRADE A-: A first-class sludge / punk metal record.
