The Totally Frightful Issue: The Knife
No matter how many times we see this video for Swedish rock outfit The Knife’s “Silent Shout”, it still manages to disturb our oh-so-delicate sensibilities. But, in the same way we can never get enough slasher flicks, we keep going back for more.

In fact, you could say the same thing for the entire album, Silent Shout: their first US offering from earlier this year.

It may surprise you to know that The Knife first made their impact in Sweden back in 2001 with their self-titled album. Deep Cuts, their 2003 follow-up, bolstered their status as aural wonders.

To celebrate their upcoming two-night gig at the CMJ Music Festival in New York City, Mute Records (the same folks who brought us the new Frank Tovey collection) will be releasing both The Knife and Deep Cut for the first time in The States.

Appropriately enough, they drop on Halloween, meaning you’ll have the perfect soundtrack to scare the pants off that certain trickster.
