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.

And today Metal Mind Productions presents first ever CD release of the debut album from Kinetic Dissent. Classic material from Roadrunner Records archives in a new digipack edition, limited to numerated 2000 copies. Digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on gold disc is a must have for every prog-metal connoisseur. "I Will Fight No More Forever" will be re-released on 13th August 2007 (on the October in USA) via Metal Mind Productions.

Bio
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. Nevertheless, amongst the giants of the progressive scene there were few lesser known bands, unfairly overlooked by music enthusiasts. One of those underestimated and forgotten gems 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. The impressive talents of guitarists Stephen Danyo and Rick MacConnell perfectly blend with the rhythmic section formed by Ed Reimer (drums) and Troy Stephens (bass). It is common knowledge, however, that even the most musically sophisticated prog-metal band cannot make the right impression without a strong-voiced singer. Dwight Bales proved more than worthy of the title - his vocals were an ideal completion to the musical form. Musically, "I Will Fight No More Forever" was compared to a vast number of bands, with the most accurate comparison stating that it was a combination of Queensryche's "Operation: Mindcrime" and Metallica's thrash classic, "Ride The Lightning". Still, Kinetic Dissent managed to throw a few things of their own - there was a slightly dark nature to this album, with lyrics ranging from political injustice to social conformity and the music that is the soundtrack to these themes every bit as serious as the topics themselves. Overall, "I Will Fight No More Forever" proved to be a valuable addition to the prog-metal genre, serving some solid, yet variegated material.
Unfortunately, the title of the album proved to be a grim premonition - Kinetic Dissent dissolved during the work on their follow-up record. Today the debut is considered a rare and exceptional addition to every prog-metal connoisseur's collection, in the same time still remaining a breathtaking musical experience.
