KEN MODE
VENERABLE
PROFOUND LORE

KEN MODE projects streams of spastic energy via an eclectic 10-song collection of songs entitled VENERA-BLE. This unit wryly uses hardcore heft (“Book of Muscle”) as a launching pad towards experimenting with dynamic elements from other heavy genres to weave into their framework (“Terrify the Animals”). Especially effective when bruising and slow burns down low (“Never Was”), KEN mode displays an abundance of dramatic buildups and cathartic releases in their songwriting while demonstrating a confidence in their musicianship capable of unloading dissonance and destruction at the drop of a dime without sacrificing melody (“Obeying the Iron Will…”). Worth a spin if you enjoy off-kilter heavy music. -MikeSOS
