I guess this band would fit straight into the style of music usually described as 'djent' - in fact I'm very surprised that they don't seem to have been mentioned in any of the djent threads that have sprung up on here over the last 12 months.
 
Anyhow, what IS for sure is that this lot are right up there with the Cloudkickers, Chimp Spanners, Tesseracts etc. of this world...and they ought really to be here too.
 
"Circles are a 5 piece progressive metal act from Melbourne, Australia signed to Basick Records. An amalgamation of seasoned players all having a strong passion for music and pushing the boundaries of the conventional metal sound. In 2010, Circles released the "Prelude" demo, which instantly caught the ears of fans worldwide. The song "The Frontline" had fans of the genre talking, with it's heavy grooves, melodic vocals and synth undertones, this was a refreshing break in the trend of progressive metal. Circles hit the live scene immediately after the release of the demo, playing numerous shows and festivals in Melbourne. With these shows quickly gaining more fans and momentum for the band, Circles needed to get to work on new material which would eventually become the bands first official E.P "The Compass". Only in their first year as a band, Circles have received critical acclaim from fans in Australia and abroad."
 
Releases:
Prelude (unsigned demo, March 3rd 2010)
The Compass EP (Basick Records, May 16th 2011)

Djent is not a style, it's guitar mannerism. Make sure Kevin doesn't see this thread. Shocked

Looks like prog metal with some djent-y heaviness in there. Thanks for the suggestion.
