Kylesa doesn’t mess around. The band from Savannah, Georgia have never been ones to follow any rules regarding genre or sound. They tear it all up in front of you and throw it in your face.

Laura Pleasants’ multifaceted voice playing over Phillip Cope’s shouting (and their wicked guitars) move the band’s sound from stunning sludgy metal riffs to hyper punk rock with no explanation about where it will go next. Bass player Chase Rudeseal and drummers Carl McGinley and Eric Hernandez keep the beat drilling waves of sound into your head.

With many releases under their belts, it’s hard to imagine that Kylesa will be slowing down any time soon. Their new album Ultraviolet, released in May, is just another collection of ripping song for banging your head.
