Post Rock Post – Kylver’s “The Island” Eden Kupermintz June 28, 2017 News It's no secret that I love stoner metal, especially in its more progressive varieties. Something about the mixture of synths and the distortion or perhaps the imagery often surrounding these albums just draws me to them like a moth to the flame (not the Metallica song in this case). That's why, when I was faced with Kylver's cover art and description for The Island, I was instantly drawn in. Those pink monoliths, the track lengths, the promise of instrumental and progressive stoner rock; everything was promising. Happily, that promise was more than capitalized upon by the album itself, as it provided me with expanse sonic soundscapes filled with interesting ideas and musical phrases. Head on down below for your first listen and then we'll chat.
