KEN mode: Loved CD
"Loved", the band's brand new vicious full length, may be KEN mode's quintessential statement of violence and despair made sonic. Drawing from not only the desperate noise and industrial sonics of the ‘80s and ‘90s, the Canadian trio mixes in the decidedly more extreme tone and presence of death and black metal, expertly captured by Andrew Schneider's sick vision of noise and girth. "Loved" represents yet another pivot point in KEN mode's sound, a departure from the indie/noise punk focused "Success" album. The group delves deeper and darker than ever before. Digisleeve.
