Gentle Knife is a Norwegian progressive rock ensemble featuring eleven members. With male and female vocalists, multiple guitarists, keys, synths, mellotron, woodwinds and more, our signature sound dips deeply into classic 70s prog, resurfacing with a modern take on the genre.
The relentless passage of time is the main theme of the 2nd album, Clock Unwound, which delves into lives overshadowed by longing and disappointment. Plans go askew, lovers betray and dreams fade. Yet, as a sense of resignation descends upon a dystopic inner landscape, moments of beauty remain. Songs are epic in format, and play across a broad spectrum of emotions.
The album is mixed and mastered by progressive rock heavyweights Markus Reuter and Benjamin Schäfer of Unsung Productions, in Berlin, Germany (Stick Men, Crimson ProjeKct et al.) and mastered by Lee Fletcher.
A prog collective of 11 strongwilled persons with collective credits and mutual veto is quite a challenging place to be occasionally, but it is also a quite remarkable organism once there’s agreement on a project and on developing a piece. So right now, we would say that the band is doing well :-)
