In the spring of this year Knim stepped from the shadows of their West Yorkshire home and presented their debut single to the world. A Prisoner On The Seas was an epic adventure – both musically and lyrically – and touched with magic. It opened a portal into another world with its entwining of progressive rock and grandiose metal and since its release all those who were captivated by its fresh, exciting sounds have been waiting eagerly for the continuation of the tale. Now the wait is nearly over, because on November 25th Knim will unveil their first full release – When A Star Falls.
Featuring a remastered version of ‘A Prisoner On The Seas’ and four new exquisitely crafted pieces of Knim’s unique sonic sorcery, When A Star Falls is a labyrinth to explore that harbours an array of treasures, waiting to be discovered. Opening with the many layers of ‘Elysium’, Knim then lead the listener on down the mist-shrouded ‘Pathway’ to the gargantuan storm of emotions that is ‘The Incongruity Of I’. The album explores themes of loss and isolation, yearning and betrayal, vivid memories of happiness beside which everyday existence fades to grey. Yet as the beautiful melancholy of the title track unfolds and slips into the odyssey of ‘A Prisoner On The Seas’ you can’t help but be uplifted by the sounds and visions that surround you. There is an intensity of emotion instilled within these songs that fires the imagination and surrounds you in rich and vivid hues of brilliant colour. There is more to appreciate within the world of When A Star Falls each time you visit its sprawling landscapes.
Accompanied by the artwork of Avenged Creations which seems to have been drawn directly from the heart of this special album and blessed with a rich, deep, organic sound quality thanks to the remarkable work of producer Ari Rannus, When A Star Falls will be waiting for you on November 25th. Join Knim on their voyage and you’ll never look back…
