This is Prog Metal the way it is supposed to be! The golden age of Prog Metal may have been the late 80â€™s, and bands like Kinetic Dissent show that the genre is one that should be supported. It is 7:45am here in Calgary, and this is just what you need as an early morning wake up call. Actually I am joking, this is a very accomplished band, and one that should have a much larger following than it does.
Many Metal bands trade talent for volume, these guys have found that unique balance where talent meets and exceeds noise level. I have no doubt that I will garner criticism, but in many ways they remind me of Led Zeppelin. They use similar chord and guitar riff structures.
I just hope that my neighbors are enjoying this as much as I am! Iâ€™ll teach them to hammer nails into the floor at 11pm!
This album is a re-mastered release from 1991, and the techâ€™s have done a fine, fine job, this is well worth the price of admission.
If you have not tried Kinetic Dissent, you can get a copy from MVD.
