BAMF Spotlight: Kinetik

Every week, Wrecked will be highlighting bands playing the upcoming Bay Area Metal Festival. This week we give you the tech-metal tyrants, Kinetik, from San Jose, CA. 

kinetik bamfFor fans of: Meshuggah, Sikth, Textures, Mnemic, Between the Buried & Me, etc…

Kinetik is a very technical and heavy metal band formed in 2007 in San Jose. Their sound is very thick and is very reminiscent of Meshuggah and Sikth, and seriously “Damn, that’s some fucking metal” was my reaction after hearing Kinetik for the first time. Each song starts with an awesome, in your face technical riff that’s pretty much designed to rip your balls off and would be best listened to during the good parts of any Michael Bay movie….explosions, guns, chicks and….over priced special effects? So if you’re looking for a dose of some down-tuned math metal, with some franticly aggressive vocals, look no further than the band on this page. These guys have a sound that can truly grab you by the throat, so make sure not to miss these guys at BAMF this July.
