RUSSIAN CIRCLES, the pioneers and final form of post-metal, have transformed a difficult situation into an opportunity and created their latest album with firm determination! RUSSIAN CIRCLES, the first and final form of post-metal, boasts a top-class commercial track record and has consistently released seven albums. Although an instrumental band, RUSSIAN CIRCLES has a compact and clear song structure with familiar melodies, and has many catchy songs. The two string players make full use of looper, many effect pedals, and sampling to create a thick layered sound that is hard to believe that they are a trio, and the strong and groovy drumming pulls the music along. Their latest album, their eighth in three years, is now complete. Like many artists, RUSSIAN CIRCLES has been at the mercy of the Corona crisis for over two years. At the end of February 2020, after many shows in Japan had been cancelled due to growing concerns about the infection in Japan, they returned to Japan for the first time in six years and showed an ironclad ensemble in four shows.Since then, all world tours have been canceled/postponed, and we had a great opportunity to be invited to do a stadium tour with SYSTEM OF A DOWN/KORN in the fall of 2021, but all of our equipment was stolen during the tour. This album was fortunate in that we had finished tracking just prior to that theft. As with the last few albums, Kurt Ballou (CONVERGE) recorded the basic tracks at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio Studio in the band's hometown of Chicago, and overdubs and mixes were done at Kurt's God City facility. The basic concept of the album is the same as the previous album, "Blood". Basically, the compositional process followed that of the previous album "Blood Year" (2019), but the compositional process was very different from the previous ones. Normally, each member would bring rough ideas to the studio, and the three of them would work out the details together, but due to the aforementioned Corona disaster, it was difficult for everyone to get together, so each of them created a demo of the framework of the song and worked on it remotely.Conversely, the process allowed us to reevaluate our strengths and advantages, and we succeeded in creating the most up-to-date version of our music while returning to our roots. The emphasis on heavy riffs, the pursuit of a dark worldview, and the ability and ideas to be both progressive and lyrical at the same time. The thick sound and production are full of the greatness of a band that has transformed many hardships into opportunities by its own hands.
