Artist: CIRCLE
Title: Arkades
Format: LP
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"Arkades catches a session Finnish group, CIRCLE, recorded exclusively for WFMU during their US tour, September 19, 2005. Comprising two lengthy pieces taking up a side each, "The Greatest Kingdom" and "The Ghost of the Highway," the record focuses on the bands often spacy improv underpinning and applies new meaning to a vision which strides powerfully over the line dividing apocalyptic dread from a semblance of hope. Agonized wailing, screams and torrents of molten sound dance ghostly shapes over psychedelic keyboard patterns, distant clattering, moonlit guitars and a rhythm section so carefully tempered that its impossible not to feel the chemistry at work. Coupled to a fantastic sleeve which illustrates a homage to spaghetti western films and includes fitting notes by WFMUs Program Director, BRIAN TURNER, Arkades proves what these New Wave of Finnish Heavy Metallers are capable of when they leave most of the rock at the door. File somewhere near Acid Mothers Temple after having been given the kinda makeover only the Scandinavians have the formula for. Indeed, this is sweet shit." - Fourth Dimension.

Title: Triumph
Format: Double LP
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Yet another vinyl-only release by Finlands finest export for Fourth Dimension, following an affiliation that takes in the now out of print Arkades LP and equally almost sold out 2CD reissue of it and, indeed, goes back to 1995, when we released a (now rare/collectable) 7", Ghatarian. As with the original Arkades LP, this release gathers recordings for a session at WFMU, this time recorded during their second US tour and captured live on the 25th September 2007. Spread over the four sides are the six cuts which made up Circles second session for WFMU, once more capturing the self-proclaimed new wave of Finnish heavy metal outfit proving themselves to be almost everything but heavy metal despite possessing the only too apparent ability to compete with the best amongst that world. Taking in operatic vocals, unearthly mulch, psychedelic splurge, nods towards folk and Krautrock, and mammoth riffs capable of knocking down nearby buildings, avant-rock has rarely arrived both so potent and in dire need of a straitjacket before. The new wave of Finnish heavy metal is positively bursting with ideas like nothing else." -Fourth Dimension

Title: Earthworm
Format: CD
Label: No Quarter
Country: US
Price: $8.50
"Circle is a band whose sound is constantly evolving. That evolution continues with Earthworm, a four song EP released on the eve of their third US tour. Earthworm finds the band further integrating their love of late seventies/early eighties metal with the circular Kraut-influenced psych that has become their trademark. The songs on Earthworm are heavy and dense with guitar riffs that shred, backed by the intense and hypnotic rhythm section of bassist Jussi Lehtisalo and drummer Tomi Leppanen. The band has invited Bruce Duff (singer of the legendary LA band Jesters of Destiny) to contribute vocals on three tracks." - No Quarter.

Artist: CIRCLE
Title: Forest
Format: CD
Label: No Quarter
Country: US
Price: $14.00
"Formed in 1991, Circle is the most visible and prolific name in the Finnish rock underground. With Forest the band have touched on their most accessible sound yet with four lengthy, percussive heavy songs that navigate through dark Kraut-inspired rhythms, whispered vocals and hypnotic repetition." - No Quarter.

Artist: CIRCLE
Title: Empire
Format: LP
Label: Riot Season
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Not many bands continue to amaze with each new release these days, but Finnish legends Circle are an exception to the rule. The masters of the hypnotic riff return with a very limited vinyl only release called Empire containing two long tracks called Dragon & Empire. The album was recorded live earlier this year in Porvoo, Finland but youd never know it was a live record as there is so much stuff going on its mind-boggling, not to mention the production is superb. Dragon sounds like Can jamming with Sunburned Hand Of The Man whilst Empire sounds like the take-a-riff and beat it into submission Circle we already know and love. This release is vinyl only and limited to 750 copies for the world."
