“Where the wall of sound falls down into a sea of tranquility”
A mesmerizing, imposing wall of sound, blurring the boundaries between post-metal, psychedelic rock and doom metal. They bring to the stage a layered and energetic sound with unexpected turns. Where the wall of sound falls down into a sea of tranquility, they always keep it dark, heavy and captivating.
With the release of their self-titled EP in the summer of 2015, this energetic three piece started their journey to rock and roll glory. This journey started in the Netherland’s very own city of rock Eindhoven, selling out local headlining shows and has led the band to other great gigs all over Europe, sharing the stage with the likes of Truckfighters, Corrosion Of Conformity, Elder, Weedpecker, Hangman’s Chair and Stake.
Expectations for their debut album where high amongst their ever growing fanbase and An Evening With Knives has met these expectations with their critically acclaimed album ‘Serrated’ released in 2018 on CD by Argonauta Records (Italy) and on vinyl by Lighttown Fidelity (NL)
“Tons of atmosphere, delicious buildup and a sound like a skyscraper” Rocktribune, 9/10
The Serrated tour brought them to great festivals like the illustrious Incubate Festival in Tilburg and Belgium’s Roadkill Festival. Later in 2018 they released their EP ‘Fade out’ and kept on touring ending their season on a high with a big show at Alcatraz Festival. Another great Belgium rock festival with a 25.000 attendance.
As the journey continues. In 2020 ‘Sense of Gravity’ sees the light of day in a packed Effenaar (Eindhoven NL). This follow-up album brings everything you can expect from a An Evening With Knives record and more. The band has grown into an even stronger and imposing powerhouse; taking everything you praised on ‘Serrated’ to the next level.
