I’m just going to tell you right of the bat that this Georgia-based band, who are cleverly named Kinetic Dissent, are one of the best unsigned bands in the underground. Pretty bold statement huh? Well, I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t think they deserve it.
Controlled Reaction is the appointed name for their second demo and I seriously think it was one of the best demo tapes I’ve heard in all of ’88. Definitely top ten list. This congregation has managed to materialize four songs that are extremely impressive…to say the least. The songs Choose Your Fate, Cultured Illogic, 12 Angry Men and Faces of the Fallen are some of the finest in metal today period.
Their song writing is thought-provoking, the music is heavy | dynamic and [a tad bit] progressive. The audio on the demo sounds great and is packaged equally impressive. This is a welcome change compared to the majority of packages (you wouldn’t believe some of the stuff we receive at the Demolish HQ).
Honestly, I cannot figure out why they aren’t signed to a label yet. Come on—A&R guys get your heads outta’ your ass please.
