Progressive metal as a genre had its most fruitful span in the break of late 80's and early 90's, when bands such as Queensryche, Fates Warning and Dream Theater set the standards for future acts to follow. Amongst the giants of the progressive scene there were few lesser-known bands. One of those underestimated and forgotten ones was Kinetic Dissent, formed in 1987 in Atlanta, USA. After two demo releases the band debuted in Roadracer in 1991 with "I Will Fight No More Forever". The album was greeted without much enthusiasm, just to receive the appropriate acclaim years later. Today it seems really awkward that this record has been so overlooked. Introducing nine prog-metal masterpieces, the album featured a surprisingly wide range of compositional varieties, stretching out from slow, dissonant and almost Voivod-like sections, to mid-paced and melodic tunes and fast, thrash-oriented pieces.

"Seems in '91 that Roadrunner and Century Media were doing the best they can to keep metal-based music alive, and the song "Cults of Unknown" goes a long way toward that. Kick-ass progressions and a driving verse keep your head banging!"

"They have some catchy stuff. Tough to compare them to any other band. The closest I figured was Megadeth-Symphony of Destruction and Queensryche. Progressive Metal I suppose. I like Novocaine Response, Social Syndrome, Testing Ground and Cults of Unreason, they're more on the thrashy side. This band is a bit different, stop and go beats. Not overly heavy, rather light. Vocals come off as punkish, mid tone. Try Myspace and Youtube for samples. Had this on tape and forgot about these guys, nice to be able to get again. Pandora has samples also."
