In 2006 The Knife released their second album, and the entire pop cosmos was wondering: Who is behind these mysterious sounds? The siblings are hiding behind creepy masks and distorted voices.

A threatening synth surface wafts from the speakers of my system, like a thunderstorm brewing far out over a deep black, stormy sea - fascinating and eerie at the same time. The air in my room suddenly cuts, the tension is almost palpable. The synth wall slowly flickers through the room like an unreal polar light before the first flash of lightning finally flashes - followed by a mighty clap of thunder. A creepy voice suddenly mixes in this threatening natural spectacle.
A dark psychedelic total work of art
The Knife - Silent Shout (Cover)
These distorted scraps of singing cannot be assigned to either a woman or a man - a ghost is howling here. The Knife stage themselves in 2006 as a dark, psychedelic total work of art. On the Internet I can only find a single picture of the two siblings Karin and Olof Dreijer. They stand on it in the middle of a snow-covered field. They hide their faces behind pitch-black, Venetian raven masks. The picture fits perfectly with the scary music of the two Swedes.
"In a dream I lost my teeth again ..."
Claustrophobic lines of text float over the swirled, melancholy music, such as: "In a dream I lost my teeth again, calling me woman and half man". Half man, half woman and no more teeth in your mouth? The image of a terrible fairytale witch in the dark forest fits the mood of the entire album perfectly.
A traumatic listening experience
With "Silent Shout" The Knife have actually achieved a lot more than a music album. Rather, it is an audiovisual event and my very personal nightmare world full of raven masks and deformed grimaces. But it is especially the voices that still put me in this unique mood today. The singing is never "real", never "real", but always unreal and mysterious - almost traumatic. It is the lust for horror and fear that makes the album something special. In the end, you're almost happy that it's finally over and still want to hear it again right away. Real spirits are at work here!
