"The fold out of the CD reveals the large letters NWOFHM, a Finnish pisstake on the semi obscure slogan New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, and that gives us some clue that CIRCLE have returned to the psycho hardcore of their brilliant 2002 album Sunrise.

Forest (CD)

Label: No Quarter   Origin: USA

In one sense, Katapult is 39 minutes of “what the hell is this?” In another, it is a boundary-less exploration of all sorts of music, precise as clockwork, annihilating as hurricane winds. Yet every one of these cuts contains its own contradictions and inner tensions, the mesmeric power of repetition uniting hard rock clangor ...

Zopalki (Vinyl 2LP) (Import)

Label: Svart   Origin: Finland
Deluxe gatefold sleeve. Re-released and remastered, the legendary second album from 1996 captures Circle roaming the deep waters of monotonic ritual and manic psychedelia. The album marked the end of an era culminating their epic occult rock and roll. Zopalki offers a penetrating glimpse into a time forever lost, but whose presence can still be perceived.
