Winnipeg’s KEN mode released one of our favorite metal albums of 2013 — the career highlight Entrench — which they toured the fuck out of all year long. They’re gonna spend plenty of 2014 on the road, too, including their current jaunt with Helms Alee and Russian Circles, which winds up at the end of this week in Chicago. They’ve just released a new video for Entrench track “The Terror Pulse”; it’s an animated clip created by Christopher Mills, and as far as I can tell it depicts a nightmare of road life — something that’s gotta be pretty familiar to KEN mode’s collective subconscious by now.
