December's Indie Spotlight
Knives To The Future by Project 86 is in the indie spotlight for December. This album tells a 12-song narrative that picks up where Wait for the Siren left off. While WFTS explores the motivation to fight and give your life for truth, Knives takes a look at the moments after the battle. More specifically, this album looks at one soldier who has just emerged from unconsciousness and finds himself on a frozen, haunted battlefield. Souls part with bodies all around him, and he has no recollection of his past, who he is, or whether he is alive or dead. All he knows is that he sees a light up ahead atop a mountain, and he must run to it to find answers. The album follows him through apocalyptic landscapes and vivid memories as he searches for the truth about who he is and his destiny.
