Ghost Knife – Kill Shelter, Yes!

- by Thomas

As if the Riverboat Gamblers wasn’t enough work yet, vocalist Mike Wiebe felt the need to start another band called High Tension Wires. For most people that would be enough but since neither band had the ability to jump at the chance whenever a show came up, Wiebe found the solution. Start another band!

With the help of the former rhythm section of J Church, Ghost Knife came to life and you can hear what that sounds like by listening to their debut, “Kill Shelter, Yes!”. Or you can finish reading this review. Duh!

Ghost Knife differs from Wiebe’s other bands by sounding more like a garage-y indierock band rather than a punkrock band. You’ll hear echoes of The Pixies in the band’s laidback approach but there’s no denying that producer Mark Ryan (Marked Men, Mind Spiders) got his say as well by letting the band sound all warm and loose. Just pick up this album… that’s basically what it boils down to. There’s no way you’ll regret it.
Score: 8.5 out of 10
