Circles are an Australian metal band and this fine album is a brilliant example of the downtuned 'djent' style with huge melodies both with the vocals and behind the onslaught of heavy guitars, bass and drums. One of the best examples of this genre ive heard this year, Circles will appeal to fans of Periphery, Dead end Circus, Stealing Axion etc as well as more versatile progressive acts such as Dreamtheater and Devin Townsend. Even with their broad influences they have the song writing and musician skills to be heard by a much wider audience than just the 'metal' crowd. My personal top track is 'Responses' you can find samples and more from Basick records on facebook or youtube. One of the best albums of the year so far.
