Hailing from the sludge metal mecca of Savannah, Georgia, Kylesa vocalist / guitarist Laura Pleasants is both demonic and angelic while melting venues with sound.

While boasting impressive guitar skills and jamming out massive riffs, Pleasants boasts a somewhat deadpan, yet entrancing vocal style. The Georgian heat is personified through Pleasants' voice as she creates a sonic realm where loyal listeners wander in the desert, encountering bizarre mirages along the way. The Kylesa goddess comes off stronger than ever in Kylesa's 2013 album, 'Ultraviolet,' taking hold of brilliant tracks such as 'Unspoken,' 'Vulture's Landing' and 'Grounded.'
