Named after an old Henry Rollins acronym ("Kill Everyone Now") and fronted by shrieking vomit vocals alternating with bellowing vomit vocals, this high-strung Manitoba post-metalcore trio aches to give you an earache. But tracks like "The Terror Pulse" and "Daedon" suggest they'd be more interesting as an instrumental band, without all the germy spittle clogging up the clanging. Their tantrums take some proggish twists and turns, and two longer tracks -- "Monomyth" and the passably psychedelic "Romeo Must Never Know" -- hint at Pelican's metalgaze drone. Mainly, they flail and lurch a lot.
