Kylesa, Blood Ceremony + More Soar During Brooklyn Performance
Although Kylesa went on at midnight, the crowd was fully awake for their performance and they brought the energy as they kicked off the set with ‘Tired Climb.’ They also played newer tracks from their latest record ‘Ultraviolet,’ including ‘Quicksand,’ Unspoken’ and ‘Long Gone.’
The overall energy of the band had mosh pits breaking out left and right and having two percussionists increased the power of the band’s sound. As impressive as the band’s onstage performance was, their trippy and psychedelic light show added a hypnotizing element to the set.
Canadian group Blood Ceremony put on one hell of a performance, as well. Frontwoman Alia O’Brien has a sensual yet sinister presence onstage, as she can soothe your mind one second and rip out your soul the next. While offering her versatile vocals, she also plays the organ and flute. Overall, the band has an old-school Black Sabbath-meets-the Doors vibe to their music.
Support earlier in the night was provided by native New Yorkers White Hills, Georgia group Lazer-Wulf and noise rockers from Brooklyn Bambara. Go here to see remaining dates of where you can catch these bands on tour with Kylesa.
