I enjoyed the punchy catchy appeal of KABANG’s debut ‘’Equilibrium’’ with the vocals of Rob Dexter standing out in particular. Well a year on and ‘’Degeneration’’ kicks off where the debut left. The overall sound hasn’t altered that much, if at all but Dexter’s vocals remains the focal point for a hard drivin’ Rock N Metal assault. To be honest the first three tracks lack spirit and pass without much comment but ‘’What Now’’ and ‘’Another Day’’ open up the robust KABANG sound delivering a SOUNDGARDEN/CORROSION OF CONFORMITY mix that works surprisingly well. ‘’Sacrifice’’ is an excellent single candidate and easily the albums most commercial workout. Once again the power house larynx of Dexter shines throughout.
Gaining a reputation in their home town of Orlando, Florida KABANG are amongst a batch of US Rockers who do the basics very well putting out heavy slices of Grungy type Metal and with the superb monster voice of Dexter they should look to a healthy future. (Online February 28, 2006)
