Ken Mode - Venerable

Ken Mode lands somewhere in that neighborhood with bands like Botch, Breather Resist and the Minor Times.  At times the band also seems to bring you something a bit more straight forward (though never boring or predictable). 

"Venerable" is ten tracks of really nice, interesting hardcore that has an aggressive attack to it.  The production here is nice and full with a great drum sound that provides a solid backbone.  With thick, distorted bass tone and a guitar sound that has the perfect blend of overdrive and saturation, the front end of this sounds massive.

If you're looking for some mid paced heaviness that maintains an angry vibe throughout then check this out.
