I can’t believe i’ve not encountered this band until now, I love them! 

Kylesa play a mixture of Doom-metal and hyper acid-rock that literally grabs your attention the way all good bands should! Some parts of this record remind me of Black Cobra and elements of early Mastodon, to give you a hint of what to expect. The pace of this record is really clever, slow broody noise tracks ala Old Man Gloom set the scene for huge riff-ridden chunks of fast noise.

The only real complaint I have about this record is the production, it’s begging for ‘fatness’, and less tinnyness, but it’s not bad enough to impare your enjoyment of this great record. The standout track for me is ‘Hallow Severer’, which lurches into a sonic explosion laced with epic, almost Minor Threat-esque intensity.

 I cannot recomend this record enough. It fills the void between the doomy elements of ‘Red Sea’ era ISIS and ‘Houdi’ era Melvins perfectly.
