Knifight, Dark Voices LP Review, Show @ Holy Mountain, 7/10/13

Knifight, Dark Voices LP Review, Show @ Holy Mountain, 7/10/13

One month after its release, Knifight's first LP, Dark Voices, still dominates the heavy rotation list. From the preeminent dark wavers, these dance-fast, poppish numbers run through with fuzzily-verbed rhythm. Stabbed clean with synths, organs, and other forms of 80-ish digitalia, the album is finished with a solid skewering via John Gable's Voice of God, reverbed into near-psychedelic places.

Try "In The Fire", "Whisper Room", "Black Dagger", or the title track if you're looking for a faster, can't-get-enough-of-it number. If you favor a slow twist, give the deliciously-romantic "Cosmonaut", "Peace Cry", or "My Angels" a spin. I'm calling Dark Voices one of the best collections of dark wave rock to grace 2013. You should thrust this one into your iPod. Better yet, catch these guys in the act. Knifight will be ascending Holy Mountain tomorrow, 7/10/13 and then transfixing the Empire Control Room on 7/19/13. --Written by Scott Osborn
