The heavy instrumental ‘post’ everything Chicago based band, Russian Circles, is a genre defying group sprawling through explosive discordant sounds, yet countering with intricately mesmerizing woven melodies.
Easily a conundrum of classification. If an attempt is to be made with words, Russian Circles is like an explorative journey that transverses an aggressive, energetic catalyst of something say like the Chernobyl disaster, then decontaminates into an atmospheric state of reflective solitude. Constructive, dynamic, layered, and expansive.
Simply put, Epic.
