original press on Rhetoric, 1997. If KILARA's debut 7" rocked your world and you were chomping at the bit for mor, all expectations will be fulfilled by their "Funeral fix" LP. Generally speaking the band has slowed things down a lot. Their noisy, ferocious assault is still intact but on this disc they are more deliberate and plodding. The heaviness takes front and center and the steamrolling riffs are simply never ending. Their southern fried Sludge, with all its abrasiveness and fury, brings to mind their kindred spirits, CAVITY, or to a lesser extent, EYEHATEGOD. These US southern bands could be used as deadly weapons of mass destruction!!
