Biography

Geneva, Switzerland (1994 – present)

1. A legendary Swiss / band from Geneva, Switzerland formed in 1994. Bleak, overwhelming, tortured and torturous in equal measure, Knut is the death bellow of bull elephants, the jazz of the crazies, free-form improv performed by death-prog metalheads fueled by bad chemistry and mad science.

2. A parody band of Kent, started by the Swedish “Varan-teatern”

    They're not coming back. Officially announced on FB that they're inactive since 2012 and all they will do is record a Godflesh cover song for a tribute album and that's it.

    a gem I missed out on for way too long. I'd go apeshit if I ever found their split with Botch for a reasonable price.

    They're awesome. Their music reminds of a swedish band, Breach.

    "Knut goes on 'indefinite hiatus'". (Jan 2012) Not necessarily disbanded and they've done this before so fingers crossed, they may be back :)

    I like all of 'em, but I think Challenger is my favorite too. I had no idea they broke up though. That sucks. Another great band gone.

    Why did I take so long to check these guys out? It sucks they broke up before I even started listening to them :(.

    I concur as well, It's just so raw and brutal, almost made me piss my pants the first time I heard it.

    guess i concur to Challenger being the best too. other works are full of kick ass moments, but this one delivers so much more as a whole. tasty looking orange vinyl too!

    Challenger might be their best, but Terraformer clearly has the superior cover art.

    Challenger has to be their best.[2] Gotta concur. I like most of their stuff, but "Challenger" is by far their most kick-ass album.
