Oh Kylesa, how you reek of sludge and doom, yet co-mingle with the heaven of drums, riffs and vocals hammering down a mighty force of pleasure. How your psychedelia and metal create a blistering twist of emotion on the soul. This is why tens of thousands of people flock to your shows, sporting Kylesa insignia and banging heads. Kylesa is touring in support of their newest release on Season of Mist Records, Ultraviolet, which Pitchfork magazine claims to be darker lyrically and sonically than previous works, containing more vocals from singer/guitarist Laura Pleasants. Ultralviolet is Kylesa's sixth studio album. Taking their name from "kilesa mara," a Buddhist term denoting delusory mental states, Kylesa will rumble Olympia's Capitol Theater with their Black Sabbath meets Tool meets Mastodon sound.

KYLESA, w/Pinkish Black, Sierra and Witchburn, 9 p.m., all ages, 21+ mezzanine lounge seating, Capitol Theater, 206 Fifth Ave. SE, Olympia, $12, $8 OFS members, 360.754.6670
