Knife of Sin is the new EP by Chicago noise-rock band Big’n.
The band — consisting of William Akins, Brian Wnukowski, Todd Johnson and Fred Popolo — combines a Midwestern rock sensibility with a more embittered, dark and anti-ideological edge than the rest of their influences. Lyrically, the songs of Big’n run the gamut of depression, cursed love, the burden of life, parental preachings and, of course, the inevitable deathwish.
Any fans of Jesus Lizard, Slint, Tortoise or Dazzling Killmen would be advised to apply within. Their slashing, burning latest juggernaut of an EP, Knife of Sin, continues their abrasive, bruising sound to even more uncompromising ends.
— Knife of Sin was recorded by Steve Albini and Greg Norman at Electrical Audio in Chicago and mastered by Carl Saff.
