Winnipeg, Canada's KEN MODE are elitist-asshole metallic noise rock with touches of post metal, hardcore, sludge and doom; a product of long, hard winters culminating in a sound that whips, pummels and lacerates its end users like a wicked Manitoba wind. The power trio bares only the essential ingredients necessary to deliver maximum impact and is an exercise in efficiency and ferocity that convincingly illustrates this is the way it should be. The band has been aggressively smearing their filth since 1999 by touring all over Canada, the US and Europe with the likes of bands such as Pelican, Daughters, Buried Inside, The End, Gaza, Engineer, Taint, and done various regional dates with Mastodon, Burnt By The Sun, Cursed, Baroness, Bison BC, Propagandhi, These Arms Are Snakes, Despised Icon, etc. March 15, 2010 will see the band unleash its fourth and most devastating and encompassing work to date; the Godcity/Kurt Ballou (Converge, Trap Them, Old Man Gloom) produced "Venerable" via their fellow Canadians Profound Lore Records. In what will easily come across as the band’s best album to date (even surpassing “Reprisal”, the album in which many have claimed as KEN MODE’s masterpiece), “Venerable” will put KEN MODE at the elite of the North American noise-rock/hardcore scene where a volatile blend of progressive, epic, and ultimately crushing hardcore fuses itself with a Voivod-like metallic surge, a sludgy doom pedigree, and the band’s trademark noise-rock devastation which sits at a level unheard of since the early days of Today Is The Day.
