Russian Circles have been refining their post-metal chops for years now, with this being their fourth full-length offering to date. It's a total monster, too. I'm totally in awe of how huge this sounds, and it's probably their most sophisticated offering in many respects, too. The guitar tones are really meaty but they've still got plenty of shrieking treble and attack alongside the filthy rumble of the bass to make their muscular swagger a bit more palpable and human. In fact if Albini was in a post-metal band I'd wager they'd sound a lot like this. They're kind of the band Pelican might be if they had a really good drummer, but they're probably even a bit better than that. They don't rush things but they don't keep you waiting around for things to happen either, and the mixture of clear, bright sounds with the murky stomp of the rhythm section is so ace. This is right up there with the latest Remember Remember and Black Eagle Child albums as a highlight of my post-rock year.
