04:10 - no one proof that no sun damages the brain
02:23 - Bad English Madi - in Luleå we have no sun at all ;p wel it has between 10:00 and 13:00 but half sun not ful, you need nbe in high mountan to see it
01:24 - !J.O.O.E.! Aha yeah, that's true. I would also add lack of social inclination is probably going to be a part of it sooner if I don't get out and sort it.
01:21 - snake? snaaaake! @joe Low mood, anhedonia (no pleasure in things you usually enjoy) and low energy are the 3 major depressive symptoms, not that I'm diagnosing you over the shoutbox.
01:19 - no one feeling down as fuck is depressed isnt it?
01:19 - !J.O.O.E.! I don't really feel down as such. More like numb; I'm having trouble enjoying typical things, lack of motivation, low energy, also a fair amount of light nausea the past few days. It gets dark here around 4 / 4.30pm at the moment.
01:16 - mz I don't really think that lack of sun for just two hours can cause a physiological reaction, but it can feel me down as fuck.
That pretty much sums up Kylesa's Ultraviolet. In a world of generic and boring sludge bands that rely on the same rolling and rolling riffs that are overused again and again, Kylesa manages to do something totally off the beaten path. Be (somewhat) original.
This is good. Take your standard Savannah sludge release, and add a nice dose of acid. Boom, you've got Ultraviolet. The standard heavy-hitting, downtuned riffs that everyone loves are still as present as ever, the "air-drum on your van's steering wheel" drum fills and punk influenced beats are still in the mix. The "pleasantly" gruff female voice of Laura Pleasants* is still a charging force in the sound. So, by now you're probably wondering where the "(somewhat) original" comes in.
Unspoken is a sweet as hell song. Having gone back from Exhausting Fire and looked up the previous 3 albums, you can definitely see the progression, although I feel perhaps the biggest jump happened between here and EF's more hard rock feel, and something perhaps got lost in translation that led to that album's relative weaknesses. ST, SS and UV are all strong efforts I'm glad EF led me to discover though
