Circle
Surface

90s, Finnish and very prog rock, Circle were famous for trying on a hybrid of genres over a slew of 7" releases and full lengths. 'Surface' shows the band five years into their existence, performing live at Pakkahuone, Tampere. The whole thing is kicked off with a cover of a Hank Williams song, if you want to know how much this band plumb the de...view item »

Circle
Terminal

You can count on Finland’s Circle to provide the goods, always pulling together the finest and weirdest bits of rock etc. history into their (surprisingly cohesive) whole. Terminal is full of proggy flair, krautrock space-power, psychedelic flavour, heavy metal heft and much else besides, making for a dense and wo...view item »

Circle
Kummitus

New single from the heavy Finnish experimental rock band Circle. As ever, the band have redesigned their theatrical appearance and aesthetic for a new album cycle, as can be glimpsed on the sleeve art to Kummitus. The two tracks here dramatically engage with both old-school rock / metal and stranger modern touches. 7&rd...view item »

Sakset
Lahja

Three Finnish sound artists working together on one album: watch out, you know what those Finns are like! In fact though, Sakset play songs, with melodies(!), even if their music is heavy with rough electronic textures and dark reverbs. Lahja is the band’s debut album, and what a striking album it is too. Out on E...view item »

Circle
Pori

Full Contact/Ektro reissue an early release from Finnish experimental metal collective Circle. Pori is the name of the album, and the band’s hometown, and shows a slightly more civilized side of the group. The focus here is on ambient textures and incorporating electronic elements into the...view item »

Circle
Soundcheck

Dave and I are having a totally childish little snigger about the fact we've just noticed that Circle have a guitarist called J Jaaskelainen. Yeah, you can bring out like 20 great albums and we'll still have a little chortle about the fact you have a similar name to a footballer. You prob...view item »

Circle
Pharaoh Overlord

Famed avant-Finns Circle have been side-projecting as Pharaoh Overlord for fifteen years now. Here they decide to muddle and confuse the boundaries by releasing an album named Pharaoh Overlord... Whatever the moniker, the sound is a wonderfully ritualistic sounding heavy experimental rock. Out on the Ek...view item »

Circle
Katapult

One of the most experimental and prolific of contemporary underground bands, Finland's Circle is difficult to pin down in words alone. Harkening back to the experimental, boundary-shattering ethos of 1970s German bands like Guru Guru and Amon Duul II in spirit and sound, Circle recognise few, if any, musical restrictions. Incorporating elements ...view item »

Circle
Kumiluoti

Having just immersed myself in the mystical hypno vibes of Circle's new acoustic album 'Leviatan', I have a 7" of theirs which contains two songs with a combined running time of less than five minutes. It's got an energetic hardcore punk streak no doubt inspired by Finnish bands of the '80s, in particular Tervee...view item »

Circle
6000 km/h

Finnish avant-garde New-wave heavy metallers Circle have released an ice-topped mountain of work over their two-decade career. With metal, jazz and easy listening moments, it’s an exploration of schizophrenia for those who fancy trying it. This live recording, taken from their 2014 European tour, is a treat for fans w...view item »

Circle
Silver

Circle originally released the tunes being re-released on 7" by Ektro in the early 90s, back when their Finnish brand of hypno-rock was there to daze and confuse audiences and offer them a slice of abstract wonder. They're back now for all to hear, including 'Silver', with its relentless guitar motifs and punk spitting vibe....view item »

Circle
Point

Well known for being one of prog-rock's weirdest and most versatile acts, accepting a plethora of genres into their hearts record-to-record (from psych, kraut-informed electronic and even black metal at one point), Circle were mostly known for being experts of hypnosis, making songs out of long-winded, ever-repeating riffs and punishing instrume...view item »

Circle
DNA / Independence

Full Contact continues to celebrate the hypno rock of Circle, a proudly avant-garde, gleefully jammy band from Finland who were prolific in the early 90s. 'DNA / Independence' is one of three 7" records initially released in this time, brought back so all can hear the band's mesmerizing, unwavering riffs and often speculated made-up languages....view item »

Circle
Leviatan

I'm not sure how many new releases prolific Finnish psych-rockers Circle are dropping this week, but two of them have landed in my review pile. I'm starting out with this album 'Leviatan', which sees them abandon the use of electricity, going all acoustic (aside from a few keyboard touches and samples of NASA space sounds) in an understated LP...view item »

Mamiffer & Circle
Enharmonic Intervals (For Paschen Organ)

Circle team up with Mamiffer (featuring Isis man Aaron Turner) for this slow and serious voyage of dread-drones and chilly textures. Over the course of three sides, we get a lengthy opener of chilly dark ambience with intermittent drumbeats and melodic twangs and scrapes (viola by ...view item »

Circle
Ssseeennnssseeesss

Circle are a Finnish experimental rock band: so experimental in fact that they have ventured to collaborate with artist Mika Taanila in order to create an honest-to-god audio-visual theatrically-performed rock opera. Ssseeennnssseeesss is a recording of the live premiere of said show, and it incorporates a very wide var...view item »

Circle
Incarnation

Death metal played so fast and repetitive it takes on psychedelic properties. The rejigged Circle lineup has enough vast downtuned riffs and tortured vocals to satisfy metallers, whilst the punishing structures and strange textures will keep Kevin Drumm fans satisfied. Vinyl LP and CD from the reliably brutal Ektro Records....view item »

Fraten

Here’s a reissue of the fourth album from the heavy Finnish experimental rock band Circle, put back into print twenty years after initial release. Fraten is a double LP, and it fills its space by simultaneously engaging with both old-school proggy hard rock and shiny new krautrock minimalism. The tightly pulsing ...view item »

Circle
Hissi

Starting off as a more conventionally prog rock outfit with elements of repetitious psych brainwashing, Circle eventually turned into any genre they could find the recipe to, trying out krautrock and metal and many, many more. 'Hissi' is one of their most supremely baffling records, comprised of pantomime instrumentation and ambient soundscapes ...view item »

Earlier today Phil put on a piece of music which was very close to unlistenable. It sounded like two unrelated records being played simultaneously but not in the good “mash-up” way. All I can remember about the identity of the perpetrators, however is that they’re “...view item »

Miljard

Finnish experimenters Circle have dabbled in every possible form of heavy and avant-garde music. On Miljard they explore ambient and kosmische textures formed from improvisation and dense keyboard playing. But do not fear, the krautrock structures and dedication to free-form playing are still present. This ...view item »

Meronia

The first ever album from Circle, which forced the world to take note of their heavily driving Finnish krautrock sound. Meronia was first released in 1994, and consequently lasts for an hour and a quarter. You can pick up the CD or the vinyl version, although be aware that only vinyl-getters will hear the last bonus tra...view item »

Tyrant

I don't think I've done anyone on Latitudes before, though I've always admired them from afar. That sounds well dodgy doesn't it. It's their usual 'edition of 1000' thing but if I'm not mistaken this Circle one ushers in a new age with its soundless second picture disc.. And to think I was cheeking off Underground Railroad for wasting resources. ...view item »

Triumph

This Circle album 'Triumph' is a bit unexpected but then I suppose with Circle you can expect the unexpected. It starts off with a kinda jazzy Kraut rock-ish number with meandering piano. Then it lunges into a dramatic dark string track that makes me think of Jerry Goldsmith with a very slight electro pulse. Then flip to the C side and there is a d...view item »
