Confessions of a Knife by My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult

Album Review

On Confessions of a Knife, Groovie Mann and company mix up a healthy dose of funky and organic instrumentation to create industrial music that’s more extreme disco than house. A pulsing bass guitar propels the 1990 release, adding a rhythmic and textural depth to the group’s sample- and synth-laden sound. Highlight tracks include “A Daisy Chain 4 Satan (Acid and Flowers Mix)” and “The Days of Swine and Roses.” Each of the disc’s first six cuts possess a fine balance of nihilistic intensity and structural finesse. The momentum fades as “Rivers of Blood, Years of Darkness,” a below-average remix of “Kooler Than Jesus,” and “Burning Out” languish in a repetitiveness that the record fails to break out of. Despite its less than stellar second half, Confessions of a Knife is a significant offering that fans of My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult should definitely acquaint themselves with.
