Kylesa

Kylesa is, fundamentally, a metal group, but the Savannah, Georgia-based outfit is otherwise difficult to categorize: elements ofhardcore punk, psychedelic stoner rock, technical speed metal, and good old-fashioned Black Sabbath sludge appear in theirmusic. Also, with a front line consisting of three very different singers instead of a single focal point, Kylesa has a musicalvariety lacking from many of their more monochromatic peers.

Kylesa is, fundamentally, a metal group, but the Savannah, Georgia-based outfit is otherwise difficult to categorize: elements ofhardcore punk, psychedelic stoner rock, technical speed metal, and good old-fashioned Black Sabbath sludge appear in theirmusic. Also, with a front line consisting of three very different singers instead of a single focal point, Kylesa has a musicalvariety lacking from many of their more monochromatic peers. Kylesa formed in Savannah in 2001, taking their unusual namefrom "kilesa mara," what Buddhist teachings term demons of defilement and delusion. Guitarist and singer Phillip Cope and bassistBrian Duke were former members of the Savannah grindcore act Damad, which had released two albums in the '90s; the originallineup was completed with the addition of guitarist and singer Laura Pleasants and drummer Brandon Baltzley. After the releaseof a single and a split EP with Memento Mori, sessions for Kylesa's debut album were tragically cut short when Duke died duringan epileptic seizure. Replacing Duke with bassist and singer Corey Barhorst, the band completed their self-titled debut, releasedin late 2002. More singles and a placeholder EP, 2004's No Ending 110 Degree Heat Index, followed before Kylesa signed with theindie metal label Prosthetic Records and released their second proper album, To Walk a Middle Course, in 2005. Following therelease of that album, Baltzley left the group, replaced by a pair of drummers, Jeff Porter and Carl McGinley. Kylesa's thirdalbum, Time Will Fuse Its Worth, was released on Halloween 2006, followed by Static Tensions in 2009. The following year, theband dove even deeper into the psychedelic waters they'd been exploring with Spiral Shadow, which arrived on Season of Mist.The trend continued on their more melodic and expansive sixth album, 2013's Ultraviolet. « hide
