Album Notes
Kineto brings together the individual ideas of four musicians to create a dark and unpredictable sound with obscure, thought provoking lyrics. It includes Rick Audet, who delivers the inventive noise guitar and precision fretwork; drummer Noah Appleton, providing the foundation with his technical yet tasteful rhythms, and Forest Huggins, who cleverly expresses his eclectic weirdness on the vocal mic. Rounding out the band is founding member Dan Menapace, who blends trippy, intense bass lines with modern samplers, which adds the definitive color to the Kineto palette.

The Enchanted

An Enchantingly Weird Sonic Oasis
Expectations and entitlement have no place in music and my personal pet peeve when it comes to music critics. They do not speak for my ears and never have nor should they be speaking for anyone else, especially if they have to put the music down for any reason, as if they’re some kind of sonic experts for everyone else.

Kineto, dares to be unique, so I guess they’ll have to get used to being told how much better they would be if they only sounded like everyone else or changed in some way.


Changing your vocalist? Maybe Rush needs to get rid of Geddy Lee, the so called music critics say the same thing about him.

Progressive Rock & Progressive Metal - E - Zine

The sound brings a highly consistent dose of originality.
Kineto is an excellent US quartet, more specifically from San Francisco bay area, and ''Transform'' is the title of its CD, which features thirteen neat tracks, whose sound brings a highly consistent dose of originality. The music performed by Kineto is a bit hard to be described or even tagged. Nevertheless I'm quite convinced this band performs an excellent Progressive Music; joining however, ingredients from other tendencies as Hard Rock, Black Metal and also some Psychedelia. It all together certainly culminates in a daring and catching deed. Therefore I wouldn't sincerely recommend this work to people who use to hold any sort of musical conservativeness, it may be mostly recommended to those who are open to experience something new, such as Kineto's music itself. This quartet definitely offers quite a straight-out sound, which gives no room for middle-term; that's just a matter of loving it or hating it. I enjoy overall the energy and also the singularity employed in this band's music, both are too exciting, even to the point of shaking me up while writing this review. The guitars are top-notch, mainly when rhythmizing along with the bass, both often walk hand in hand turning the sound heavier. The bass is performed by Dan Manapace; this guy is really standout when playing his powerful instrument; moreover he reminds me strongly of Geezer Butler's skill. To my viewpoint, his playing has been definitely essential to the sublimity of this work. I also enjoy Forest Huggins vocals', which are remarkable, and very appropriate to the band direction. Cutting a long story short, the whole band is great, and its music is worth throwing back all over. Although I appreciate the whole content of the CD, I'd like to express here the cut that really blew me away, and was kept inside my head for lots of days, the one is ''Caveat Emptor''. What a perfect interplay between Rick Audet's guitar and the weird vocal of Forest Huggins, sounding strongly like something close to Celtic Frost. Fantastic!!! The line-up Kineto consists of the following members: Forest Huggins - Vocals, Dan Manapace - Bass, Samplers, Additional Guitars & Vocals, Rick Audet - Guitars and Noah Appleton - rums. ''Transform'' is a highly recommended CD... (Comments By Sergio Motta)

Every song on this CD wrapped itself around me on the first spin. The music is hard-driving, rhthmyic, and strangely wonderful. This band reminds me of a cross between Tool and Primus, relentless and tough, but what both impressed and surprised me most were the intricate melodies of every piece. I received my CD last week, and it hasn't left the CD player yet.


Well I love the music. Loved the tone of the guitars, bass & drums. High quality recording. The singer gets on my nerves after the first few songs. The band seems very versatile and unique, and in my opinion the singer is not. I think the vocals are boring and un-original. I think this band can go places with a different front man, but hey that's just my opinion.

Kineto's Transform is a self-released, bass-rich, complex piece of work, highlighted by lots of rhythmic variations, clean, robotic vocals, layered samplings, and a static drum workout. Both Forest Huggins' vocals and Rick Audet's guitars are processed heavily to bring the music an added dimension in most of the tracks, such as "World Under Pressure". There is a very prominent bass that permeates the band's songcraft that I feel fans of Tool may enjoy. (Click link above to read full review...)
