Kicking off their first ever South East Asian tour, Russian Circles are celebrating the release of their third album Geneva. This Chicago based trio are notorious for their ability to replicate and layer upon their recorded material. Paying no heed to generic rock sounds, Russian Circles have created their own musical genre; a combination of progressive metal, instrumental rock and experimental sounds. On top of that, they’ll be jamming our for us at KLPac TOMORROW!
Consisting of Dave Turncrantz on the drums, Mike Sullivan on the guitar and Brian Cook on bass, Russian Circles is actually a name taken from a drill exercise used in ice hockey. Their technically and musically profound live shows wins them more and more devotees each time they play. Their songs often start off slow and heavy to begin with, progresses to a semi psychedelic post rock sound and finishes as it began.
Russian Circles will probably be the best instrumental act you’ll hear live; complex rhythms and heavy discordant metal to give you an all round awesome live music experience. Listen to ‘Fathom’ and ‘Harper Lewis’ on their albums to get a taste of what these Chicagoans have to offer.
Russian Circles will be perfomring live this Friday, 24 September 2010, 8pm at Pentas 1, KLPac. For more on the band, visit www.myspace.com/russiancircles.
