An Evening With Knives – An Evening With Knives

An Evening With Knives – An Evening With Knives
Self released – 2014
Rock, Metal, Sludge, Doom, Stoner Post
Rated: ***

Hailing from that same town as Komatsu; An Evening With Knives produce heavy ruckus that could be seen as an offspring of that band. Heavy, dirge like sludge and stoner metal are the main vein. And they use samples. But through those arteries race post-rock blood cells and substances that are highly volatile. Another reason might be the fact that Komatsu-frontman Mo Truijens produced the EP. And ofcourse guitarist Marco Gelissen filled in for Stephan Quint when the man was hospitalized. O' and the band opened for them on their last show in their hometown before they left on their European tour with Uncle John. There, that’s enough about that connection. But another background check showed drummer Ivo Jonkers being part of Hijos De Mayo and Red King Rising. (One of the first bands of Selim Lemouchi from Devil's Blood.) But let’s dive headfirst back into those two mountainous tracks. Huge in sound, color and atmosphere the three manage to keep you captivated and on edge for the entire time. There is something lurking down there in those deep and dark waters. And it is dangerous and armed with knives…
