Milwaukee, WI metallic hardcore group Knaaves has set the release date for its debut, The Serpent's Root, coming on Sept. 3 on Confluence Records (CD, cassette, and digital formats). The band's first full-length features seven new songs about seeking truth in a sensational, often manipulative culture. Listen to the title track after the bump.
While the band may be new, it consists of scene veterans Andy Parmann (ex-Amora Savant, vocals), Jamie Kerwin (ex-Amora Savant, guitar), Amanda Daniels (ex-Enabler, bass/vocals), and Antonio Ninham (ex-Die Alone, drums).
Earlier this year, Amanda Daniels shared her personal experience with abuse with Scene Point Blank in a moving guest column titled "The Road To Return, The Path Of Forgiveness."
Surrounded by deceit and destruction - lies from the media, corruption of our planet, and even our own minds shifting thoughts within, each day is a war upon our senses as we struggle to sort out the truth in an age of disinformation. The music of KNAAVES is inspired by the often-palpable negative energy that surrounds us. Some songs are drawn from the media's manipulation and sensationalism of cults, serial killers, and murders, while others are drawn from anxiety, depression, abuse, neglect, or the relentless destruction of our planet's resources.
With the combined influences of its members' previous bands and modern influences like Axis, Black Breath, and Disfear, KNAAVES' The Serpent's Root delivers seven unapologetically heavy tracks of pissed-off grooves, dark melodic riffs, and emotionally-driven lyrics. The Serpent's Root was produced, recorded, edited, and mixed by Kerwin at Davidian Studios and mastered by Brad Boatright (Converge, Integrity, Obituary, Vastum) at Audiosiege with artwork by Scott Shellhamer (American Heritage, Ghosts And Vodka). The record will be released September 3rd on CD, digital, and cassette formats via Confluence Records.
