“Something better than HEAVEN INTO DUST is certainly not likely to happen to bullet belt and leather jacket lovers in 2023.” – Metal Hammer 

“The second fulminant, punky black’n’speed metal massacre” – Deaf Forever

“With ‘Heaven Into Dust’ KNIFE cement their supremacy as a German blackened speed metal institution.” – Stormbringer

“To hell and back. What a ride, what incredible speed, heaven turns to dust” – Powermetal

Up-and-coming German speed metal outfit KNIFE have unleashed another boisterous new single, “Night Vision”, together with an imprisoning official music video. Greeting demons with merciless, heavy guitar riffs and inciting the restless storm of raging singer Vince Nihil, the smoking hot video keeps the rebels trapped in an unyielding steel cage.

KNIFE on “Heaven Into Dust”:
“Bangers! When the night is darkest, the only light is the strike of the KNIFE. ‘Night Vision’ is the second assault from our new album, Heaven Into Dust. Aggression and power are unleashed, like a wild animal escaping from a cage. This is the essence of the pure KNIFE metal. A vision divine!”

Fast, wild and unstoppable – German upstarts KNIFE deliver the sharpest speed metal! 

Formed in 2019, the band defied the pandemic – quickly establishing their standing in the scene with their acclaimed self-titled debut record, Knife (2021). Now, the quartet delivers their sharpest blade with the new album and Napalm Records debut, Heaven Into Dust, out August 25, 2023! Fans can look forward to their furious set at Wacken Open Air or several tour dates with Sodom at the end of the year.

KNIFE’s new album kicks off with dramatic organ tunes and unsettling whispers. Album opener “Hawks Of Hades” sets the tone for their newest chapter. Raspy punk screams rule the darkness together with an eclectic arrangement. Followed by the rousing track “Night Vision”, remarkable classic rock riffs build its foundation while unbridled drums hustle along with shredding guitars. Topped by a catchy, raw refrain, vocalist Vince Nihil fits in perfectly with the fiery demonic atmosphere. Unleashing their 80’s hard rock and heavy metal influences on songs like “With Torches They March” and “Black Oath and Spells”, they showcase the band’s skill in creating remarkable choruses, characterized by soaring vocals, scorching guitar solos and leading drum strokes. KNIFE keeps on rolling with dynamic changes on the album closer “No Gods in the Dark” – featuring unbending, shrieking screams dueling with shredding riffs before the instrumental finale fades out. With Heaven Into Dust, the band has truly sharpened their tools and gets the listener’s heart pumping instantly while keeping the devil’s horns alive.
