The great Savannah, Georgia doom metal band Kylesa, quite possibly my favorite metal band working today, last left us with the 2013 album Ultraviolet. They’ve just announced plans to follow it up with a new LP called Exhausting Fire this fall, and first single “Lost And Confused” is a welcome indicator that this could be a monster of a record. After Ultraviolet pushed the band toward psychedelic-rock drift, “Lost And Confused” moves them even more in that direction. But when the band’s two drummers fully lock in, the song turns into a merciless fuzz-rock stampede. Kylesa sound pretty even when they’re being intense and intense even when they’re being pretty, and this has me really amped for a new album. Listen to it below.
Exhausting Fire is out 10/2 on Season Of Mist.
