I'll have to check that out, sounds awesome.Kilara - Southern Fried Metal
Genre: Sludge/Stoner Metal
Composed of people who played in bands as wildly different as City Of Caterpillar and Alabama Thunderpussy these guys were second only to Neurosis when it came to creating one hell of a sludge soup in the 1990's. Much more punk than the Neurosis fellows, these guys would throw in some pretty damn fast songs that wouldn't seem at all out of place on a powerviolence record, and then follow it up with a bluegrass tune or one of their numerous classic rock covers.
Kilara did put out a legit LP that had it's share of great tunes, but this compilation of their EP, splits, and other rarities is where it's at and has a much rawer production that fits this music perfectly.
I've still never heard a sludge band quite like this and I don't think I ever will. If you think modern sludge has become as boring as slowed down elevator music then give this record a spin.
