Circles biography
CIRCLES is an extreme metal band formed in Melbourne, Australia, by vocalist Perry, guitarist Ted, guitarist Matty, bassist Drew, and drummer Dave.
The band made waves in the Australian progressive metal community with their debut demo "Prelude" in 2010, which explored the band's djent-based melodic progressive metal(core) sound with unique synth undertones and melodic tendencies. The band returned in 2011 with their full EP "Compass," which rocketed them into the modern progressive metal scene with their heavy, hard hitting sound.

The band is reminiscent of modern djent bands like TESSERACT, PERIPHERY, and VILDHJARTA, while at the same time taking influence from progressive metalcore acts like PROTEST THE HERO and BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME as well as other melodic progressive metal acts.

Review by Second Life Syndrome
Prog Reviewer

3 stars "It could have been so much better". That's what comes to mind after hearing this debut album from the Aussie tech metal group Circles. Their second EP, "The Compass", was impressive with its diversity. Every single song on that EP was different and had a great twist to it. Now, finally, Circles manages to release their debut album, and I can't be any more disappointed in the approach they took.

Circles have a djenty style of music. The stuttering riffs they use are interesting right off the bat, but I find that their keys are what really draw me into the music. So, basically, Circles mixes electronic keys with djenty guitars, technical drums and bass, and a high-pitched (almost emo) vocalist. It's not my favorite combo, but it can be enjoyable.

The problem is that Circles abandoned their sense of exploration. They used to mix in ethnic twists or lush melodies. However, on their debut album "Infinitas", Circles have gone for the more mainstream djent style. Gone is the exploration. Gone is the emotion. Now, all we get are tracks that all sound the exact same. Literally. Ominous, crunching riffs mean nothing when the tracks become indistinguishable from one another. The worst offense, however, is the fact that the keys are mostly mixed quietly. You can barely hear them! So, my favorite part of their music is now missing almost entirely.

There is one exception. I find the first track, "Erased", to be rather inventive. The keys are actually heard in the mix here, and there is a cohesion to the song. I also thought the collaboration with Twelve Foot Ninja on "The Signal" is a good effort. The rest? The same convoluted mess of djenty riffs that are all identical and a mix that eliminates melody.

Now, I've definitely heard much, much worse from 2013. This album is simply average in every respect. Had the rest of the album been like "Erased", you may have seen a much better score. However, the album is simply flat and uninteresting. I hope that Circles takes this to heart and remembers that technical finesse is nothing without purpose and melody.

Review by Phiz

5 stars Absolutely Amazing EP. For me, the best find of 2011. The rhythmic exploration and the downright grooviness of each song is hogging far to much of my ipod time. We have entered Djent city my friends. The production i think really compliments what they have to offer technically as players. Although all tracks are rhythmically tasty, 'Clouds are gathering' is definitely a stand out, and the ending groove will definitely prove to be hard to get out of your head. I really find it hard to find negatives to say about this offering to the progressive gods, I think the guys at Circles headquarters have put together a great product, and the fact that it is an EP is even more impressive. That being said it may put a lot of pressure on fans expectations on an album, but if they do succeed in backing this EP up, i see it in the hands of many.

Having the great opportunity to see them live in their home city and also their 'Swarm Tour', its great to see these guys have the live chops to go with it. Judging by this EP, there are big things coming from Melbourne, Australia. 5 stars!

Thanks to Rune2000 for the artist addition.
