Album Review
Michael Howes
Reviewed 2003-09-08
Two amazing technical grindcore bands. Blistering fast, brutal vocals, and tons of changes per song. This is metal all the way and they both do pretty much everything so fast I can’t even wrap my brain around it. Kalibas are from Rochester, NY and just go full speed ahead on most tracks. The Kalibas tracks were recorded by Dave Witte. Rune are from Ohio and mix it up a bit with some dark ambient noise, electronics, and a slight death metal sound.

**1. Amazing mid paced chug and sick vocals before going full speed into techie grind heaven. They do actually slow down in the middle of this 3 minute song. One of the longest the band has written. Has this tack been released before?
**2. A great nasty guitar sound. Short and brutal.
3. More straight ahead pummeling.
**4. More melodic but still heavy and fast.

**5. Starts with a quiet sample, then breaks into techie grind that goes up and down the fret board with some unique and almost understandable vocals.
**6. Slightly more of a death metal sound. Medium paced and longer at over 5 minutes. Lots of changes.
**7. Fast out of the gate. Does slow down and get brutal. Slight doom-y feel but only for short periods. More of a metal track.
**8. Dark ambient noise that is surprisingly very good. Distant echoes and rumbling and then scary noise that really does sound like the wind blowing different things (swings, etc) in a playground as the nuclear holocaust rumbles past. Vocal samples towards the end as the noise fades.

Amazing stuff!!! Not a bad track here. -mph
