"An end-times opus, inspired by John Dee and Karlheinz Stockhausen and their quests to find the hidden truths of the universe, through schismatic means. Knives ov Resistance entreat the choruses of Enochian angels - to the human ear, this resembles Popol Vuh's scores for Werner Herzog, or a more restrained Godspeed You Black Emperor"
Excellent CD debut from this collective. Found sound, samples, orchestration and guitars ebb and flow across three long tracks. An aural journey of 35 minutes.
"This pan-European group of tape manipulators and guitar explorers have delivered something peculiarly beautiful to Aurora Borealis, an industrial folk album that harks back to the playful, pastoral era of Cosmic Couriers as well as the more recent Jewelled Antler Collective discography. Opener 'Rosicrucian' swells with spiral-picked melodies and thin electronic tides, evoking the serene cosmic folk of Witthuser and Westrupp. Elsewhere, the synth pulses and samples of 'Sovnig' shimmer amid the heat-haze of interlocked guitar mantras, grazing and unhurried. Knives Ov Resistance's gentle methods are more akin to long-lost troubadours such as Tom Rapp than Boards Of Canada; the mournful closing track 'Outremer' roars with operatic vocal cries and radio dispatches, the tendril-guitars diffused and murmuring. A precious and elegant debut." - Rocka-A-Rolla
