Kali - Kali EP (2009)
Kali is a powerviolence band from Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. They play a considerably unique form of the genre that equally and tastefully mixes the relentless intensity of early Westcoast bands, like Crossed Out and No Comment, but also lean toward the experimental and weird tones of modern bands like Iron Lung. It's extremely visceral, spastic, dark, unsettling, dissonant, pissed off as fuck and I can say with confidence that I and many others would consider this some of the best of the genre in this generation. This recording was originally released as the band's demo, but was re-released on 7" by the German, Idoneum Bello Records.
