08/15/15 Riff of the Day Kylesa – Running Red

Kylesa – Running Red (from the album Static Tensions, 2009 Prosthetic) If I was a professional mixed martial artist, this would be the song that I came down to the ring with. It swells from the opening piano riff into something tribal and sinister. Hailing from Savannah, Georgia, Kylesa opened up for Mastodon during their Crack the Skye tour, and I have been a fan since. Like The Melvins, Kylesa features two drummers. A great live band if you ever get the chance to see them. They also have a new album, Exhausting Fire, releasing on October 2nd via Season of Mist.
