Orlando, FL by way of NYC quartet Kabang play the kind of tortured nu metal that bands like Mudvayne and Slipknot have made palatable on their 10-track affair DEGENERATION. With a modern metal approach in full effect, tracks like "Sacrifice" and "Break Away" sound as if they came from 10 Years or Soil, while the intense rhythm interplay on "What Now" momentarily evokes Tool before going into an early Alice in Chains-esque big rock chorus. Beefy riffs and a thick lead vocal really allow Kabang to stand out as a cross between '80s bands with balls like Bang Tango with a touch of Godsmack, giving this band a good shot of picking up new ears from the mall metal contingent.
