Label: Ecstatic Peace!
Religious Knives is comprised of Maya Miller and Michael Bernstein, formerly of industrial drone group Double Leopards, Nate Nelson of the similarly noisy Mouthus, and Todd Cavallo rounding the group out on bass. After a string of twelve inches, singles, and an LP, they're set to release their proper sophomore effort, The Door. It was co-produced by Thurston Moore, and will see release on his Ecstatic Peace imprint. Don't be intimidated by the band member's pedigree and the noisy reputation of their label, though. Since its inception as a four-piece just over a year ago, Religious Knives have been paring down their sound, emphasizing Krautrock rhythms and bright synth drones over industrial noise. The Door is the next step in this evolution.
