Knifeworld Found New Album Approach Liberating

(Prog) Knifeworld mainman Kavus Torabi says he felt "liberated" while recording their latest album. Bottled Out Of Eden is out on April 22 via InsideOut - and the vocalist and guitarist says he learned to stop being a "control freak" in the writing process and give the rest of the band a say in the studio.

Torabi tells Fifteen Questions: "For Bottled Out Of Eden, I almost went back to a pre-computer way of working. I knew how I wanted the songs to sound but we worked together on the arrangements. Everyone in the band has a very idiosyncratic style. For The Unravelling we'd just expanded to an octet and four of the guys were relatively new to the band.

"Some of the tunes were a few years old and I feel I was probably trying to shoehorn their styles into playing the pieces as I had imagined them. This time, I had written specifically for this band and these players, and owing to the fact that all the songs were brand new, I had far less pre-conceived ideas as to how I wanted them to sound."

He continues: "It was really liberating - for a control freak like myself - to cede a little because I trust the other guys so implicitly." here.
