Nikoletta Winters As a long time fan of Dan Dave Larson’s work, I was looking forward to seeing what he was going to do next. With “Knives” he created an immediately accessible and clean sounding set of shredwave that doesn’t let up. I am greatly looking forward to seeing more from Larson in the future. This was an instant buy for me. You’re going to miss out if you somehow decide to skip out on on this one. In other words—don’t sleep on “Knives.”

If shredwave had a country Larson would be the God Emperor. Favorite track: Triple Six Sonata (Original Dan Dave Larson Version).

Mr. Conner Wailing guitar solos of shattering and reconstructing ourselves, throbbing percussion of wounded blood vessels, seamless transitions into vast landscapes of uncharted territory, a flower growing from ravaged land under black skies. Liberating. Courageous. Delicate. Brilliant.

Knives is a tale of perseverance through tough times and a lot of hurt.

I am a soldier, a defender of the land, a hero to some. An enemy to a stranger. I am also a broken man, a casualty of the war I fought in.

In love, I am left with scars, marks that will never fade. A reminder of what I have lost, of the love that slipped through my fingers like sand.

To earn my freedom, I grip the knife of society's expectations with both hands, not to harm myself, but to break it in two. To carve out my own destiny, to forge a new path, one that is true to myself.
