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.

This is the band that came right after An Embrace of Angels. I think it shares all or most of the members. They're listed as being from Owatonna, MN, and were active mid late 00's. They sound pretty similar to Embrace of Angels, just a little less over done and cringy. I think they're better for sure. What I have here is some early demo I think they released, then some EP found on their myspace.

Edit: Ghosts was Matt (bass) and John (vocals/keys) from an embrace of angels, with a different guitarist and drummer (Wyatt and Jonathan).
