Based in Denver, Colorado, eclectic mathcore trio Kenaima have been on quite a tear since forming not that long ago in 2016. In between frequent high energy live dates, the young group released a well received six-song EP called Haste followed by a standalone single recorded on tour called “Letter of Resignation”.
Later this winter they plan to record a full-length album, but, have some immediate plans and efforts in the present to keep moving forward. In just a few weeks the group will hit the road with progressive death metallers Dischordia for The Ancient Blood Tour and you can find the finalized tour dates listed below.
Before the chapter closes on Haste related content, the group wanted to put out a playthrough to highlight the release and their high-octane style before embarking on the tour. To that end, Kenaima has partnered with Gear Gods today to launch an explosive full-band playthrough of “From The Gut”.

Gear Gods comments on today’s playthrough launch of “From The Gut”
“If there’s one word to encapsulate everything happening during this tune, it might be “explosive”. From the dissonant guitar parts of Dave Sandoval to the chaotic rhythm sections of drummer Jeff Malpezzi and bassist Clayton Whitelaw, the trio comes together to form a spastic-yet-cohesive experience that is sure to please fans of hardcore and experimental metal alike. And that isn’t proof of how enjoyable these guys are to listen to, they even brought in a whole party of people to rock out while they power through this relentless jam. I’m only disappointed in the fact that I didn’t get an invite.”
