Biography

Perhaps the most immediately apparent characteristic of the fifth Russian Circles album, Memorial is its wide range of emotion. Vacillating from somber-yet-soaring melodies on one track to pummeling metal heft on the next, Memorial sounds like an album with split personalities.

Where one song showcases guitarist Mike Sullivan, drummer Dave Turncrantz and bassist/keyboardist Brian ... Read more in Amazon's Russian Circles Store

It's relaxation in music form IMO.
Timothy Ryan Sharp
They are melodic, epic, ambient, at times dark, well crafted songs that blur the lines between genre classification.
TJ
Using the term very loosely it is likely one of the weaker tracks.

RUSSIAN CIRCLES - Enter

-

Chicago seems to be a sort of hot bed for instrumental acts now-a-days... Hearing all the hype about this album I felt I should proceed with caution, thinking it may be just be a winded version of Pelican or their kin. Truth is, `Enter' is a debut worth shouting about and will likely make it in the top 10 of 2006.

Russian Circles sound is much less pretentious then many of the other instrumental bands... with songs never getting tedious or tiring. The opener `Carpe' is subtle opener which really sets the stage for the album. Unlike many other bands their opening track does not eclipse the rest of the album and does not set the bar too high for the following songs. Using the term very loosely it is likely one of the weaker tracks. The second song `Micah' is a real piece of art, sounding like the love child of Lateralus-era Tool and the Red Sparowes. `Death Rides a Horse' is a furious power shot of spastic guitar rhythms, driving bass and definitive drum sections. It is likely the darkest and heaviest song on the album, yet does not sacrifice melody. The title track, `Enter' is an interesting blend of rock-fusion and sparse dissonance. Again the rhythm section is incredibly tight and really helps drive this song forward. Track five, `You Already Did' is a breathtaking amalgamation of various styles. This song has an underlying melody which is one of the most beautiful things that has graced my ears in quite sometime... at the 5:00 minute mark the song unfolds into delicate aural transcendence. The final track, `New Macabre' is a spiral of musical emotions, dabbing in the darker realms and shifting back to the driving melody.

Hailing from Chicago, Russian Circles is one of those bands that comes completely out of nowhere and blows everyone away. Enter, does exactly this! Perfectly blended "Instru-Metal" is RCs talent, and is also a rapidly rising movement. A merger of typical Indie Rock mixed with other forms of Hardcore and Metal. If you like Pelican, Red Sparowes, Isis, Godspeed you Black Emperor, or even Explosions in the Sky, you need to check this record out.

Lush instrumental arrangements with punk, indie rock, metal, and orchestral influences. They are melodic, epic, ambient, at times dark, well crafted songs that blur the lines between genre classification. Russian Circles are the breath of fresh air complacent rock has been waiting for. One of the best records of the year, the past 10 years, and for years to come. All on their debut.

i have had this album for awhile now and just got to see them live last night and wanted to let people know about the new songs i heard them play. They only actually played 6 songs which was a letdown since i went there just to see them, and i even got lost trying to find the place! We all wanted an encore but...they were taken off the headline spot!? It may have just been because they other band was in it's hometown......though i do not think that was the reason either...but definitely still go check them out on this tour if you can.

The first two they opened with were new ones and amazing. Dark, mature, and thunderous. They also played a slower/pretty song which was really awkward i thought and reminded me of Pelican for the first time while listening to them, but it was a lot different and ended pretty good. Then they also played "Carpe" and "Death Rides a Horse" which ofcourse were amazing.

Hahah also i had never seen what these guys looked like before, so that was kind of weird....you will know what i mean when you see them WHICH YOU MUST DO!!! they are touring right now, please check them out if you are liking there stuff and can not wait for the next album which i am sure will be even better (somehow) than their brilliant first. Which if you are reading this and have not checked out yet, shame on you.

If you like Isis, get this; If you like Pelican; get this. If you like beautiful and heavy cds then GET THIS ALBUM. It will not disappoint you. You may think they sound similar to some other bands, though i have gotten way past that and you will too after hearing the whole album, even just the first track will blow you away! After i heard it for the first time i wanted to just keep replaying the build-up at the beginning, over and over again.

Really don't know how I stumbled across this band, but glad I did. Lots of people will consider them to be a Pelican knock-off, but please, give it a listen, it is way different.

For example: "Death Rides a Horse". Pelican plays NOTHING that sounds like this song. Pelican tends to have more of a droning sound like an instrumental ISIS. This songs is WAY too fast paced and upbeat for Pelican. I can see some other tunes ("New Macabre") resembling the Pelican sound a bit, but they absolutely forge their own style.

That being said, this instrumental album is wickedly good. There really is no way of describing their style, they bounce all over the place, really heavy at times, really melodic at others, throughing some off-beat nonsense into the fold. All I can say is that fans of bands like Pelican, ISIS, Red Sparowes, Saxon Shore, Explosions in the Sky, even Don Caballero would dig this album a bunch. One of my favorites from this year.

Check out "Carpe", "New Macabre", and "Death Rides A Horse" to get a true scope of their talent.
