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 »

Art Bears
Winter Songs

Art Bears grew out of the uncertain demise of the legendary Henry Cow, with most of the same membership (Dagmar Krause, Chris Cutler and Fred Frith). Their second album Winter Songs is a fierce tour-de-force of the possibilities of avant-rock, from a gr...view item »

Jussi Lehtisalo
Maisteri

Jussi Lehtisalo is the bass guitarist of renowned avant-Finns Circle, and Maisteri, the latest in a long line of solo productions, is as fun as its colourful Mexican wrestling cover suggests. Lehtisalo evidently has a lot more to him than bass playing too: these productions are full of ...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 »

Pharaoh Overlord
Circle

Famed avant-Finns Circle have been side-projecting as Pharaoh Overlord for fifteen years now. Here they decide to muddy the waters of that separation by releasing a Pharaoh Overlord album named Circle, at the same time as doing the reverse...  Very cheeky. However they are...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 »

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 »

Falcon
Frontier

It’s been a while since we got a record that is just about catchy riffs and old school rock, so it was high time for Falcon. Their debut’s title may suggest differently, but Frontier is really about exploring the possibilities of rock in it’s purest rolling form. And they sure do excel at that who...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 »

Circle
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
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 »

Circle
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 »

Hollywood

Double LP reissue of the Finnish band Circle’s album Hollywood. Their most metal album with vocals from Bruce Duff as well as the usual crowd of Janne Westerlund. Jussi Lehtisalo, Tomi Leppänen and Mika Rättö. Featuring two tracks from Earthworm also. The real question is why is Circle such ...view item »

Faust
The Land Of Ukko & Rauni

Land of Ukko And Rauni was recorded at a gig in Finland on April 20, 2000. Total of 84 minutes of state-of-the-art throbbing, industrial trend-setting modern day krautrock to be fully experienced here. Best tracks are the show opener "The Calling", the eleven-minute sonic "As You Might Know", "Tour Plus Eleven" and the amazing (at least played live...view item »

This is it, it's really here at last! Available for the first time on vinyl, thee undisputed best stoner rock album of all time. Rivalled only by the preposterous schwagger of Monster Magnet's Spine of God, #1 by Pharaoh Overlord takes you on a longboat trip around the coastlines of Northern Europe, berserkin...view item »
