A Million Knives Lie In Wait

A hardcore band from Portland, Oregon. Summer 1998-Summer 1999.
They recorded demo with Jeremy Romagna (later of Type Foundry Studio) and self-released a CD/cassette they sold on their sole west coast tour.
They shared bills with:
Submission Hold, Reversal of Man, Bread and Circuits, Yaphet Kotto, combatwoundedveteran. Their last show was at the Living Room in Santa Barbara, CA.
Related bands: Pascal's Wager, JonnyX and the Groadies, Berzerk, Mur*der.

Really good 90's emo style stuff. I have here just the demo mentioned above, I've never seen the self released CD before, so no idea on that. Overall it's fairly high quality, but super short. Sometimes the vocals kind of remind me of Toru Okada, especially in the second song. Recommend a download for sure.

Edit: Thanks to below commenter for the following. It has all the songs.



  1. I got in touch with a guy who knows the guitarist of this band. He is going to see if he can send me that full length to me. Ill send it to you ASAP once I get it

    1. That would be super cool. Yea keep me posted!
