The Chicago trio, Russian Circles has always explored volume dynamics, and theirs the albums alternated dizzyingly between chaotic attacks of noise and soothing, sublime melodies. The latest album, “Blood Year” is renowned for calming before the storm: skillful combinations of riffs, drum precision, range from melancholy to hectic crescendo.

With their latest album they leave the sonic intersection of different music tracks to offered the most direct and powerful collection of songs in their discography. In an age where rock boards are often created on a computer, Russian Circles decide the opposite, together as The band in the recording room follow each tone of each song organically, without use computer. While retaining all the dexterity, multi-layered techniques and dramatic compositions, their trademark from the beginning, “Blood Year” fully embraces the strongest aspects of the band’s repertoire.

They are coming to Rijeka with their new studio album “Keep This Be the Way “.
