Jyri Straechav I picked the slow song as the favorite track, but personally the "Your Heartwarming Story Makes Me Sick" is a bit more memorable and perhaps more accurate description of the album. The band sounds a bit like Converge got a different vocalist and had some brainstorm with VoD, along with maybe a touch of The Dillinger Escape Plan if you really insist. Very lovely mix and definitely worth a listen or dozen. Favorite track: Romeo Must Know.

Wez Barber Great riffs, loads of balls, diverse enough to hold interest Favorite track: Romeo Must Know.

Chuck Taylor It's award-winning music. And it's still heavy as tits. Nuff said. Favorite track: Your Heartwarming Story Makes Me Sick.

    KEN MODE already begun to create a big buzz when the Canada-based band toured Europe with Welsh rockers TAINT as well as KYLESA and CIRCLE TAKES THE SQUARE. Previous album “Venerable” (2011) also won the inaugural Heavy Metal/Hard Music Album of the Year Juno Award in Canada and a nomination for Rock Album of the Year by the Western Canadian Music Awards. Now the trio founded by Royal Conservatory of Music trained brothers Jesse Matthewson (vocals / guitar) and Shane Matthewson (drums) is ready for the next great step. KEN MODE’s fifth full-length “Entrench” proudly preserves their acclaimed metallic Post-Hardcore severity, while offering their most creative and sonically diverse album at the same time – to which famed producer Matt Bayles (MASTODON, ISIS, BOTCH) added a massive punch. Formed in 1999, KEN MODE have shared stages with THE END, MASTODON, BURNT BY THE SUN, PELICAN, THE DREAM IS DEAD and GAZA among others. This band is hot and clearly bound to be the next big thing!
