    Kylesa mixes in the right amount of sludge, death, and post punk to produce a unique blend of metal that only Kylesa can make. It has taken them more than a few albums to get it right, and with their two most recent albums one can only guess how epic the next one will be. If this is a "tie over" for hardcore fans, it's a very good one. The mere mention of "vaults" can instantly lead one to imagine garagey recordings on a battered 8 track with some happy accidents occuring in between songs. This album DOES NOT sound anything like a cash grab or something only ardent fans could love. It sounds like a real album, and everything stands out uniquely. With a chick singer/guitarist and two simultaneous drummers, Kylesa is already outside the norm of most metal bands. This mix-tape of covers and old stuff establishes them as true heavyweights alongside the likes of Mastodon and Baroness. But if this album is a sign of things to come, Kylesa will be keeping things dark and heavy. Full Review »
