Kinlin - 'End Of Descent'

Added by James Gaden     March 17, 2010    
Any band choosing to have Uncle Sam as the grim reaper on their album cover deserves to be taken note of. Based in Fort Lauderdale Florida, this is their 2nd release and really hits the mark in uncompromising fashion. I will get straight to the point and let everyone know that 10 months into the year and this is the best album I have heard so far from anyone !! Opening track”Forever”has a double kick drum barrage, and a guitar sound like a ton of bricks that somehow breaks down into a catchy chorus then its all systems go and everything kicks in again. Guitarist “Tom Lynch” formerly of “No Pressure” and “Five Skin” rips out a breathtaking solo on said song and with plenty of light and shade and shock horror melody a fantastic way to open your account. Another great discovery from this fine band is vocalist “De Wayne Hart” who expands his vocal range on the track “Coming Home” and you would have to split the song 50% Soundgarden and 50% Metallica., listening to the song “Rapture” and the way it just builds and builds with a simply brilliant chorus made me well aware how just how good an album this is. What “Kinlin”have done is thrown in all their musical influences such as “Ozzy, Pantera, Disturbed and Soundgarden” into the pot and have achieved a fresh sound as well as a monster piece of work. The album closes with the semi acoustic “Awakening” which highlights the mellower side to the group but with the added bonus of a gut wrenching twin guitar solo, that was the icing on a very tasty cake.
