Kylesa are a band of the down-tuned stoner metal old-school. Exhausting Fire is their seventh album, and it demonstrates the fact that they know exactly which buttons to pressing to conjure up a heat-blasted desert. The CD and the coloured vinyl editions prove their allegiance to the faith with a bonus cover of Black Sabbath’s ‘Paranoid’!
8/10 gbar Customer review, 6th March 2017
This is another great album from Kylesa that combines elements of sludge metal, stoner rock, psychedelia, punk, and alternative rock into a uniquely dark and cohesive sound. It may be their last, as they announced in the spring of last year that they would be going on indefinite hiatus. The first of their albums I heard was the awesome 'Static Tensions', one of the best of 2009. Although 'Exhausting Fire' has less punk in it, overall it's more atmospheric, though there are several faster, high energy tracks. Older Kylesa fans probably wont like this as much but as far as their new path in the psychedelic rock genre goes, it's one sweet album.
