Knifeworld is Eight of Dense. Her psychedelic ray gun spray silver matter into their captive thirdeye.

Formed in 2009, the brainchild of the stupendously prolific Kavus Torabi (Cardiacs, Gong, Guapo, Mediaeval Babes, Monsoon Bassoon), and featuring members of Chromehoof, Sidi Bou Said and North Sea Radio Orchestra, Knifeworld will be bringing their blistering live show to Festival 23 to headline our main stage on Friday night. Knifeworld straddle genres, bringing intricate time changes, soaring vocal harmonies and spiralling metal riffs to bear on rock solid melodic and hook filled songwriting.

Born of neglect, rocket fuelled by Dionysian arkana then atomsmashed onto the shores of Lysergia. Cursed into documenting God and the Devil shaking hands forever. Sexy transgression, carnal mandala, a sacrament of truth ablaze in the shit-tunnel of existence. Knifeworld are the last, only and everything you truly dig.

New album Bottled Out of Eden released on 22 April, watch their new video ‘High / Aflame’
