Knife Of Life - Nevada Desert is my second full instrumental album.
The main concept is 80s. 80s sci-fi movies. Cyborgs, computers, street gangs, Manhattan, desert warriors, martial arts, so on
Nevada Desert is a mixture of many genres. This time I made it more analog. A lot of modular synths melodics, electro bass, disco stubs, drum machines and other influences from 80s electronics. Guitars also have a lot from metal, rock, punk and mathcore.
Knife Of Life is a one-man band and it took me about 3 years to do everything. Recordings guitars, synths, writing lyrics, recording vocals, programming, mixing and fixing.
Each song has a story.
Mental cyborg in a leather jacket rides across Nevada Desert, carving digits on people’s backs and uses their heads as transplants. Army of machines comes from the frozen caves to fight with a tyrant, having nuclear crossfire with iron titans. Old junkie lives his past and insanity. Falling to the very bottom and rising to the stars. A nimble ninja sneaking into a castle using secret ninjutsu moves and Tiger’s mortal stare.
Also a song about my basement dweller friends. Awesome golden church and a gaze of Digital God. A story of a guy who had everything but he got bored to death, jumped to a rocket, flew towards distant stars and collapsed in a space battle.
And the last one is about a dream I had once. I was standing under huge sky near a giant muddy rushing river. It was foggy but millions of stars were watching me. There was only a void and emptiness. The place where you can reconsider every single thing you’ve done in your life.
To be honest, it was really hard work and I pray you will like this album.
